Xmas 2008. I'm growing.

What I look like today. The north wind is not too kind. My petals are getting battered but my two friends (the two legged ones) think I'm still lovely...

Life of a particular sunflower.

Not in chronological order... The day after it RAINED...

i got a bit wet mum, hooray.

Well well Well. I've been shamed into it. Not necessarily on purpose. But the queen of following blogs thinks I'm a bit slack. So here's one for you Gaby..

Thursday 17th July

Well it is a very cold day again. I'm having trouble getting motivated to do anything. Went and mowed the lawn instead. So Roz and i have come up against a hitch. We are now concerned that having our woollen objects be they felted or knitted will not stand up to being out in the light be it sunlight or electric lights which are in the cabinets in which we will displaying them.. One solution is to only have them displayed for two weeks instead of four at both libraries... We shall see..

sunday13th july

Have felted another hat and refelted and reblocked a couple of older ones as I was too sloppy the first time around.. What else is new? Sloppy because i am always so impatient to see a result.. Also have kept up with creating crochering more flowery sort of things.. and have now come up with the idea to incorporate shells of which I have an abundance. Nice to be able to do things with them than have them actually sitting collecting dust. But I do have an ethical? question as to wether I should actually take them back and reposit them back onto a beach....These questions are trying.

having just read in the Green Guide that it's healthy to blog which is obvious as so is keeping a journal, I have decided to keep up with my blog no matter what. So here are a couple of photos of what greets me at the moment, as I sit down in the living room to watch TV. The display of my knitted and felted hats and Roz's felted scarves and bags is coming up pretty shortly. September in Reservoir Library and then in October in Fairfield Library. I have fairly mixed feelings about it mainly due to the fact that knitting takes a long time but I have used crotchet to make a number of things and have developed a crochered bracelet. This has been a very interesting process as it definitely has come about by one thing leading into another. The ideas come as I am either knitting or crochering.

well here's my teepee city a bit bedraggled now and the zucchini plants which had very beautiful leaves but not too many zoucks looking a bit the worse. they have all had to cope with some very fiery blasts and north winds.. and it is the beginning of Autumn. I was pretty pleased that my tent city kept them a bit protected. next year I will expand it I hope.. my sunflowers where a success and the birds thought so too... the minute the seeds were edible they were gobbled.
