~ Knitting Grafitti ~

We decided to have a little visit to Saltburn ,a nice walk by the sea when the sun 's shining ,there's nothing like it. 
We always have a walk down the pier,but today was different because someone?????  had been very busy ,apparently all this lovely knitting appeared overnight.
It is a 50m Scarf that has been sewn onto the rail.As you can see It's all about the Olympics,all the figures are of an Olympic sport.There's such a lot of work gone into everything.,It's really great that somebody has done all this knitting for fun,the secret knitter remains a mystery,who ever It is they're a very talented knitter.......That definitely rules me out !!! :)

torn images from magazines,and then began to layer paint and fabric till I was happy with the

~ Painting Love ~

I haven't painted or drawn for such a long while,......but today I changed that.
It always seems to relax me,I think you kinda get lost in what your doing.
I did a little bit of mixed media creating ,I haven't totally finished her yet ,but I thought I'd show you anyway.

I intend to do a bit of machine sewing, to add a little bit more interest, and then she should be finished.
Ive just finished decorating my daughter's bedroom,so Lady Love will be joining them in there lovely new room,  I might even make her some  friends ??? 
Hope you're all having a creative weekend

~ Busy Days ~

Aren't daffodils  such a cheery happy flower

What a busy day,,I seem to have been running around to much lately,I'm quite used to it being hectic round here ,what else could you expect with four kids ,but I seem to be bogged down with school letters and requests for money for school trips,amongst other things.
I found myself looking at the calender,counting down to the next school holiday.
I don't usually say how I'm feeling on my blog,as this is my happy place where everything is rosey and nice and fun ,but well today I'm making an exception

Ive decided I need warm breezes,windows open,long walks in the countryside instead...... icy winds ,windows tightly shut and a quick run round the park is just not cutting it for me .How do you feel ? ( northern hemisphere )are we ready for them warm sunny days? I know I am,well with spring round the corner I suppose I havn't got long to wait,I think the sunshine instantly makes you feel better one little moan over with,I have verrry much to be thankful for I know but heyy I'm only human  ......
