It has been a busy month....again....but now things are beginning to settle.  So many new things, setting myself a few challenges....the stirrings of spring have made me feel like taking on new projects....it's all good!

I had a mission to undertake recently, a painting commission that required me  going on a bit of a recce to take some photos.  The place wasn't really on my doorstep, so I decided to combine it with visiting another place I was keen to see.  The panorama view above and the view below are of Llangrannog, a small coastal village with the most stunning coastline.  This gentleman overlooking the sea, is Saint Carannog, 

I am very blessed to live right by the sea and the coastline is breathtakingly beautiful in Wales, I do rather like the more mottled colours in our landscape during the colder months, there is definitely something to see all year around.

Ends can only mean one thing...a finished blanket....a stripey blanket at that.....this is my Attic24 Moorland Blanket

It has been a lovely project and fairly easily done.  Two of my boys have recently been in a stage show of Oliver with the local operatic society.  My oldest took the part of Oliver, so for the past five months I have carted him back and forwards to lengthy practices, sometimes three times a week.  My trusty project bag has come with me every time, much to the amusement of the rest of the cast, but there was suddenly more interest as it looked more 'blankety'....some even sounded envious that I had something to show for my hours of sitting in the back of the hall.

Last week was show week and I got to shed a few tears at both my boys on the big stage....I am so proud of them both, especially the oldest having the courage to sing solo in front of  a sold-out 300 seater theatre.

Thinking of it still now makes me emotional, the music, the orchestra, the costumes....it was a fantastic opportunity I won't forget and certainly the boys won't.

Finally, I've been running again, this was a charity race for a Neonatal ward....it was muddy and steep, but a lot of fun!  Look, I'm smiling, but most likely as I could see the finish line!


  1. Hi Faith...remember me? It's been a while since I visited you here....look at you skinny minnie and the boys are so tall!!!! I've seen the blanket over at Lucy's but I still haven't made that Blackberry Salad one...remember that one that you did that I loved so! I am still a blanket person and have one on the go as I speak. Good to see you again and did you say painting? You are the talented one and so are your boys!

  2. You go on that race! You look great. And what a handsome boy you have. I want his jacket. Congrats on the commission.


I'd love to hear what you think, and I won't be asking you to jump through hoops (or fill in a captcha) to do it.............
