Slowly Getting My Life Back........

The Christmas break seemed to go on for an eternity this year and whilst it was fun at the time, I'm very glad to see the back of it.  What with one thing and another, there has been very little time for crafting and even less for painting and I am starting to get severe withdrawal symptoms.

I have been working with wire, beads and shells for the first time in ages though.  I have an interesting commission to make about 8 feet all together of this........

...to be used decoratively on a large mirror.  So I am crocheting 18 inch strands...one down, five to go! 

Mr. Bulldog (or whatever he is) now has a comfy bed and a little knit jumper....I think he might get a toy and a bowl too before being put up for adoption! 

Now that Christmas has been cleared out of my house, all visitors gone and sanity restored, perhaps this weekend I can get the paints out as well - keep your fingers crossed for me!

Cute little dog. Love his bright red jumper, really suits him.

The wire crochet/shell strand is lovely. Can imagine that work really well.

We already have clawmarks in our bedroom, which IS newly painted, from the times she's hopped on the window sil there... Of the cellar I couldn't care less since we haven't painted it ourselves, but I suffered a month of carpal tunnel and no knitting for the bedroom!
