knitting, aromatherapy, herbs and life in general


September 2012

birthdays everywhere!

So I have no pictures of anything I’ve been working on this week, as everything is for people’s birthdays that are coming up this month. Things will be photographed and revealed after the many birthdays happen, wouldn’t want anyone to see their pressie in advance.

So I thought I’d share with people another current obsession I have with Pinterest. I love been able to remind myself of the many wonderful and inspiring things there are in the world.
Here are my boards, hope you enjoy. 🙂


Faerie’s first trip outside

So my first Faerie is finally finished, I think. I could be tempted to do more but I think it would be over doing it.

I can see things I think went a bit off, the colour scheme is too similar, her hair doesn’t show so well against her wings and nothing really pops. There are techniques that need working on to, some seaming shows more than I wanted it to but over all I’m pleased.

resting after a long afternoon photo shoot 😉

couldn’t resist one last pose

more drawing

while we were away I braved the pencils again and came up with this,

hopefully it bares some resemblance to the wonderful Clyde, I was working from a picture of a random cat and memory

so I missed another week but I have a good reason

Hubby surprised me with a few days away in the Lake District for our wedding anniversary, I didn’t think he was even going to be on holiday, so special. We climbed/walked up Skiddaw and Helvellyn

Derwent Water and Keswick from the top of Skiddaw.

Helvellyn was a little different, it rained!

and rained

here is a weir towards the base of the mountain before we set off

and on the way down

needless to say we didn’t quite make the top.
recharged the batteries though
