I love making things. Fabric, yarn, fibre, paper, paint and print are my tools of choice. The necessities of life generally manage to get in the way of my need to create , so it all tends to get a bit erratic. Exactly as the blog title suggests.

Here is my attempt to organise things and keep a record of my efforts.

My little Folksy shop is taking a holiday for a while but I hope to re-open soon and sell things that I have made for the sheer pleasure, but are surplus to my needs.

Flowers are a constant source...

... of pleasure and inspiration.

The weather was so dry this year that the Aquilegia (with thanks to Lankakomero for reminding me how to spell this name!)  were only blooming for a very short time.

We have had some welcome rain and the Morning Glory are now stunning for a few hours each day.

I thought that my beloved Canon Powershot was playing tricks on me when the centre of this flower shows so brightly, but it I tried taking photos from all angles and in different lights. Indeed the centres of these flowers are almost luminous! It is definitely a value adding object, just point and click and you see things which otherwise would be taken for granted. 

Oh darn... "go" is the full bloom, but it is 150 miles north from where I am now!

Already there are seed heads to delight the senses,

Enough!!! I have kniting to block and a lining to make for the Wheatsheaf bag, Juliana's wrap to work on (not to mention chores to catch up on!).

AND work to be done on the OMEGA Tapestry.


  1. hi,
    waiting for my morning glories to bloom. since their life is so short their centers act as landing strips for insects.
    thanks for your comment on the vintage books. yesterday i posted a chart for roses and will frequently post more of them.

  2. Thanks! I will take a look later. Oh right.... I thought there would be a technical answer to the Morning Glory thing. ;o)
