I was so lucky to have fellow blogger Fil join in with the Pay It Forward Art Challenge and as part of her art package I received her album which I have been listening to ever since. I knew she was good and has a wonderful voice but I just didn't realise how many different styles she includes in her music. If you want to hear something different please go and check her out at http://www.filcampbell.com
I love that I have been able to get back into knitting more over this winter period and have found a knitting group I can attend that is full of lovely people who all like to share a laugh as well as patterns!! It meets once a month and today is that day so I will be wearing a smile looking forward to it!
Due to the cold snap we are experiencing at the moment, I realise I should be getting on and making the door curtain that might stop some of the cold air whistling through the ancient door frame and key hole in our corridor. To give you some idea of scale the key is longer than my hand so the key hole allows loads of air to blow in!!
However, despite having bought a wonderful huge piece of heavy and lined material from a thrift store way back at the end of summer (with this very task in mind) I am having difficulty locating it!! This is what happens when you put something in a very safe place!!
As a lot of us do during the New Year, I am trying to lose some weight and get healthier. Before Christmas I seemed to be putting in a bit more exercise but since the cold winter weather arrived this has tailed off so my idea is to go back to dog walking for a local animal shelter which will mean I HAVE to go because I can't bear to think of those sad dog eyes waiting for a long walk and being disappointed if I don't arrive!!
Finally, although we don't have pageants over here in Britain so am not quite sure if I am doing this right but if I had to give myself a title on what I do quite well it would have to be looking for bargains in the charity shops (thrift stores) and mending things rather than buying new!!
Now am off to follow those rules and check out my fellow contributors Currently posts. As always let me know what you think and I'd love to know if you have any tales of charity shop finds or what you are knitting at the moment!!
