Egh. I really need to find a new layout and jazz up my blog a bit. It feels so stale, plus I want to make a new header. Such a trivial thing to write about, yet I find a blog is an extension of one’s personality. This means it is constantly morphing and changing to fit how we feel.
How do you feel at the moment?
I feel INSPIRED! I want to write music and lyrics and sketch pattern after pattern. I recently bought a craft journal at the moment and it is getting quiet a work out. I manage to write or draw an idea every day which is a miracle considering I have an eight week old little girl who has a voracious appetite. Turning the ideas into a solid tangible subject is another matter entirely 😉
I also want to realise one of my dreams in working with animals. My goal is to eventually be able to open and run a no-kill animal shelter. That is a long way off at this point in my life, but I believe anything is possible. A smaller goal that I will acomplish is to become a certified dog trainer and behaviourist. I would like to be qualifed within five years. This depends of where life takes my husband and I(and obviously our daughter!-she goes where we go).
What are your dreams?
Baby Rabbit Girl arrived via an emergency C-section on Friday the 7th of October 2011. We are finally home.
Happy Sunday! Its a beautiful sunny day here and I’ve just come back from a family member’s birthday party. The one project I want to give you an update on is the rainbow hat i’m designing.
At the moment its roughly thirty percent complete and is done in single crochet (double crochet for UK people). My goal is to hopefully add some double crochet clusters (= treble for UK) in there somewhere. I have a rough idea of what I would like the hat to look like but i’m not going to pin my hopes on the drawing 😉
I hope everyone else is having a nice relaxing sunday
I found this wonderful idea from Yarn Dharma’s Blog and have decided to participate. I think I might be slightly crazy especially as baby rabbit girl will be born in october of this year,yet I know I will need crafting to help get me through this wonderful amazing, new challenging aspect of my life.
Anyway, here is my ‘book’ of patterns
* 1. Granny Stripe Afghan
* 2. Mandala pattern (my own, currently designing)
* 3. Rainbow hat (my own, currently designing)
* 4. Mystery Plush Toy (my own currently designing)
* 5. Buddha
At the moment that is all i’m going to list. I know myself and am likely to get to carried away. Can’t wait to see what others are coming up with!

My Best Friend T the Faerie Queen visited Hubs and I this morning, in tow was her beautiful little boy Z-man. It amazes me how quiet and at peace I feel when spending time in her delightful company, the world seems calmer, more serene and blissful. Isn’t this what true friendship’s about? The ability to be in each others company and feel the peace within. Basking in the sun with my gorgeous husband, a cup of tea and friend. It truely is the small things in life that make me glad to be living.
