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...


flying visit to drop off words

With apologies, I have been a little quiet on the blogging front.

Although I have many stories weaving in and out of my life, some have made me laugh, some made me cry and some have made my heart squeeze, none are suitable to share - for personal reasons, for pride and for some reason - I seem to be unable to find the enthusiasm to blog.

I am not falling off the radar far from it - probably just need a break. 

My art and all things art have taken over at the moment - most of my day is making/painting/sketching and creating and in the evenings when I used either blog or knit - I sketch, sketch, sketch.

Any hoo - I am still here, 
just probably in the summerhouse with a furrowed brow,
pencil grasped lightly,
radio on and a mug of tea.

Words for end of the Month of May
