I so want to craft …I keep seeing things I want to do …things that inspire …things that look fun … but nothing comes forth from my muddled brain.
I am trying not to look at the new things on the market as I really cant justify spending but when I get back to crafting I think I will treat myself.
I have not even knitted since I had to rip back my last piece …but my hands are itching to start again which I feel is a good sign.
I am still getting over the shock of loosing several of my ‘cat collection’ …I hasten to say NOT the real ones …but at their hands …or should I say paws.
I had my cat shaped mugs teapots and jugs on top of one of the display cabinets …quite high up …sounds a stupid place with so many cats ….but nothing had ever happened even when Rusty once decided to roll amongst them and Mika sat in the middle of them, defying me as I shouted DOWN…but that should have been a warning.
There I was in the kitchen when the horrifying sound of breaking china reached my ears … I ran in to see two shocked and guilty kittens surrounded in a mountain of broken china ….but such is life with felines … a great photo opportunity missed though …. too stressed to grab my camera.
This evening I made an Eves Pudding for supper … something my Mum used to make when I was a child and her Mum for her …I tweaked it a little to make it my own … Robbie and Kris loved it….forgot to take a photo until we had eaten it ….this is all that was left ….it was yummy if I say so my self and even DD loved it. I will add the recipe in a couple of days, in case anyone fancies trying it.
I shall just finish with these photos …
Two little tired souls….
and another one of two sleepy heads…
Barnaby with Mika, who was standing in for Rusty as ‘uncle‘.
Hopefully my creativeness will be back soon ….I feel it is struggling to emerge but until its return, I do not want to miss out on the weekly gathering, and my visits to my wonderfully crafty friends.
I seem to manage about 75 of you each week...wish I could manage more visits.
Take Care xx
