Happy New Year

I received this New Year’s text from a friend of mine, and thought it was so lovely, I decided to share it with you.  Thanks to Izegbuwa for sending it to me.

Happy New Year in advance.  May your doorway into 2011 be wide and your path clear.

May your achievements exceed your expectations.

May your thoughts be divinely guided and your heart lit brightly to illuminate the way into and through 2011.

Happy New Year to one and all. See you next year.

Keep crafting, keep creating.

Home 4 Christmas

Just back home 2 spend the holiday with my sis & her children.  Got up v early 2 get 2 train stn, most trains were severely delayed, a majority were cancelled, so I took the nxt avail train home.

A good thing, is that all restrictions were lifted, which meant that I could sit in 1st Class!  Needless 2 say, they were not best pleased!  Especially as I told ‘Mr Bespoke Suited n Booted’, that I only paid £5 4 my tkt, compared 2 his £175 1st class tkt!  I deliberately sat next 2 him, @ the forward facing table, took out my netbook, hooked up 2 the free WiFi, kicked off my wellies, selected ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ by the Prodigy on my iPod, kicked bak, n tuned out!

My nephew was 21 on Monday, but he didn’t want 2 cut his cake ’till I got there! Check out the old Nokia phones!

My sis’s Christmas tree.  No dropping needles 4 her!

Just seen the time!  I’m off 2 bed.

Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukaa (sp) Happy Eid

So until the next time.

Knitting & Crochet Workshops in Lewisham Market PART 1


o6 o7 o8 o9

Saturday 28th Nov, was the Lewisham council’s Christmas festivities, which included the Christmas lights switch on, parade with cake, gingerbread & minced pies.

My part-time day job, provided a free felting, knitting & crochet workshop.
The fabulous Mec taught the dry needle felting workshop & she also sold her glorious, felted items, whilst I taught the knitting & crochet workshop.
Other workshops taking place were Recycled Gifts & brooch making.

I’m sorry I can’t remember their compnay names, but the fabric brooch making ladies, were also @ the Lewisham People’s Day, this Summer, and they were busy, busy, busy!  Well done, ladies.  Hope I get the brooch u started making for me, but never got to finish!

All the above was held in a giant marquee, outside the Lewisham shopping centre, and although there was some heating which came via a giant funnel on the floor, it was nowhere near adequate for all us to feel the benefit!
My fingers were soooo cold, that I had to stop until I had a hot drink, & defrosted my fingers!  It’s the kind of cold, that makes me want to swear, but I held my tongue, had my drink, ate some lunch, went to the loo (lingered over the hot air hand dryer), then back to work!
