Posting has been very light over the last week or so. Life has been busy.
You know I was decorating my bedroom AND the radio!
Since then, I have watched the paint fall of the wall. Really!
Maybe this is the reason for the colour change:
It actually givesa very comfortable and restful light effect.
One dark & dreary wet day, I finished the base fabric for another project. The exciting part might happen next week. 😀
Wednesday was glorious.with blue skies and sunshine, so I headed to Carrickfergus. Sitting at the mouth of Belfast Lough, you can smell the sea!
What is that chap up there doing?
Looks like he has me in his sight.
The latest Toyboy in my life – Peter Pumpkin – He was finished at 6am, yesterday morning. He is sitting on my spectacles case, so that gives you an idea of his size!
Not bad for a first attempt.
Yes, Elly. I hear you!
I wasn’t talking about your absence though, your website was down? A ‘come back later’ notice was in its place. I should have taken a photo!! Glad it’s all back now xxx
Barbara, I was working out the back and forgot to reopen the doors when I finished. Today I am having difficulty commenting on my own blog and facebook. Hopefully it is only a temporary situation (3rd time to try)
Yeah! It worked.
🙂 How do you take it offline?
While updating it was in maintenance mode – available to me, but not to the outside viewer. Maybe that was why I didn’t notice.
How do you do that?
Go to Dashboard, under that you should see Updates with a number after it IF there are plugin updates. Click on it and it shows which plugins need updating. I bet that is as clear as mud!!!!
No plugins, so I guess that’s why I have no updates 🙂
Yes, you have been busy and the latest toyboy is cute indeed! Why should Elly mind?
I imagine Elly will want at least half a dozen for next years Halloween decorations. Peter Pumpkin was gifted to a friend yesterday, but I do have plenty of yarn in the right colours to make some more.
Yes please 🙂
Barbara, you will have to join the queue! 😆
a tie-dyed wall?? most impressive 🙂 either you have huge glasses or Peter is a wee pumpkin
He is quite small, ideal for a kitchen window ledge, I used US size 5 needles. (Karen will translate).
I love these photos, Grannymar. Are you all finished with your decorating?
Still have some finishing touches to add. I needed to take time away from it for a week or so. I will get back to it soon. You know how it is, one job leads to another. I am in no hurry, so there is no problem.
That’s my attitude. I took my time and it was done when it was done. Enjoy the break!
Years ago, I would have finished it in a day.Now I cannot keep painting for that long in one stretch. I would become paint blind and exhausted. I also have to watch my back pain. I refuse to give in to others doing it for me. Even at this stage, I have a great sense of achievement.
Good for you!
Such wonderful things you do and make. Wish I could find my motivation, it seems to have deserted me for a while…
Brighid, it will come back. You have your hands full right now with a very important task. Give it time!
I love the photo in your header!! Nice pumpkin and I want to see what you do with the yellow project.
Thank you Judy! I will not get to the ‘yellow project for a few days, but when completed, I will post a picture.
I’m wondering about the recipient for the soft yellow blankie. Or maybe it’s just to keep Peter warm at night when you turn out the light?
Nancy, my plan is for the now yellow fabric to keep me warm!
It looks comfy and cozy!
light gives an interesting look, so you will always have that to look forward to…the night show 🙂 nice Pumpkin….
The pumpkins are wonderful for a short evening project, I made another one last night, it now only needs the stalk and face details added.
Love your new header, love that yellow bit of wevs – can hardly wait to see what that turns out as and the painting, gawd missus you are making me breathless!!! 😀
I love the header photo, I took it in Graiguenamanagh about four years ago. Today I extended my table to begin working on my ‘yellow’ project, I still have along way to go. I know what I want, but getting there is a different story.
I’m getting tired reading all you’ve been doing! Puts me to shame.
BHB, some weeks I get more done than others. Heavy rain promised from tonight through Friday, so I may get time to work on the yellow piece.
