Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Estuary Shawl Ta-Da!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

My laptop is working! (well in a fashion) and I am back and I have missed you so. I really love the blog-community that is out there - and I really really did miss you :) While I was 'away' with my poorly laptop, you still kindly commented and emailed me and kept in touch - thank you I did manage to do a few emails during my lunch hour at work but it was not the same.  

I ordered  a new keyboard and when it arrived in the post I was delighted!  Himself very cleverly changed the board and put my laptop back together - it is still being temperamental but I can use it... might be time to buy a new one (said in a whisper so not to upset my existing laptop  shhhh)

Anyhoo on to happy things!

I have finally finished my estuary shawl and it has been blocked, with the help of Pepper who either lay on my blocking or helped hold it down while I pulled the blocking pins out.

It felt like I had to remove a billion pins before I could pick my shawl up. As I lifted and looked at it I could not speak for amazement and happiness and disbelief that I'd AcTuaLlY made this shawl and that it AcTuaLlY looked like it should!

Himself took photos for me - it was snowy and white outside and a perfect foil for the dark shades of blues -

I love the way the rivulets and the runnels have formed.
You can see why it was named Estuary - happy happy happy me.

Did I mention happy?
Oh - ok, in case you didn't notice...
HaPpY HaPpY Me!
