Scavenger Hunt

When did that happen?

Hello all.

Wow!  We're into December, I'm not sure how that has happened.  The last few weeks have flown by both at school and at home.  In Reception Class at the moment the Nativity play is the main focus, we've had a dress rehearsal and 'our' children are little stars.  They are adorable and their star dance is pretty good too.  

At home I've had some lovely walks with the dog, this on top of Minchinhampton Common.  
Our local woods.
Tipper is not too happy to stop for photos

but sometimes you need to stop and take it in.
I've fired up the woodburner, and what better place to relax after your walk?
I rearranged my shelving unit in the craft room and added more colourful cubes.
Still a bit more rearranging to do I think.
I went to see James Blunt.  One Word.  A-MAZE-ING.

It was a bit of shock driving through central Birmingham in rush hour traffic especially as I thought it was at the NEC but we got there in the end.

I've been melting old candles down in a bain marie
to make new ones.

And experimenting by adding loads of glitter, I'm very happy with the result.
The advent candle is burning down (a bit faster than I would like.)
And I've been folding origami stars.  I found some instructions here. The music paper came from Amazon.    They are really easy to make and I'm getting faster!
My last few pictures to leave you with, Miss Clicky's partner has been sailing around the North Sea working and visiting oil rigs on this ship for the past month.
He went from Shetland, this was Jamieson's window.  He did offer to buy me yarn but this was vetoed by Mr Clicky.
 He flew back in yesterday and took this stunning picture of London as he was landing, well worth sharing.
Well, that's me for now, I'm off on another dog walk and some more star folding.  
Have a great week.........Clicky Needles.


  1. Wait a minute.. Mr. C vetoed yarn? What? Is that legal? :-) Looks like you've been having a nice time of late. I'm glad you are enjoying your studio.
