Red is the colour

Decided that for Valentines Day red would be a much better colour of rose. Well red is your traditional Valentines Day colour and red roses well you couldn't get more classical. I also made the rose slightly larger and more blousey more of a damask rose.

Getting ready for Valentines Day

I have been looking at suitable makes for Valentines Day and trying some ideas out. Today I made a knitted rose, the colours not quite right (it was some scraps of wool I had) but it was good for a first try. The next ones I make will be red, a real Valentines Day colour, or maybe pink, we'll see.

Well in theory Snow is beautiful stuff and I love it. I makes everything look like a fairytale all sparkly, white and clean. The muddy paths, dirty piles of weathered leaves the litter, and the greyness of this time of the year is covered and everything looks new. Well that's  the theory, sadly the reality sinks in pretty fast. You realise the paths and roads are slippery and that lovely fresh whiteness only lasts until the feet and car tracks plough through it, the leaves litter and mud haven't gone away just temporarily covered and will reappear once the snow melts and they'll be even more unsightly and finally in this country transport grinds to a halt. 

However, its the weekend so I going with the beautiful for now, might change if its still here come Monday morning ha ha ha.

Resolutions? Not this time.

Well every year I like so many others make New Years Resolutions and really most we never keep beyond the first weeks of January so whats the point? So this year I decided no more resolutions. Sadly though that's sort of a resolution, but at least its already broken ha ha ha.

Happy New Year Everyone
