As promised, the June mosaic! I discovered that cutting it and pasting it from facebook worked a lot better than uploading…
I love my June mosaic….
May’s mosaic was a bit harder to create as I was in the middle of my sock binge, so it was a mosaic full of feet in socks… but June, well, that’s a different story! June has been a wonderful month in my little world, largely due to the fact that the weather has been amazing for this time of year! It has only become cold in the last few days and actually started to feel like winter, and being a person who despises being freezing cold, I’ve enjoyed the mild temperatures.
And spinning, another passion I have discovered… I am so thrilled to have discovered spinning and persisted through the difficult period that occurs when you learn a brand new skill, the frustration when it just keeps bloody well breaking or over-spinning itself. The next stage is the awareness of what you are doing wrong but not necessarily knowing how to do it right, and then the joy of getting it suddenly and creating what you intend to create…. it’s fun stuff this learning. (Apart from the first frustrating stage!) I’ve had sooooo many lovely comments on my spinning, *thank you* when I read the ones from this post it felt like I was getting 57 big hugs and it felt so great to have so many enthusiastic people getting excited along with me! I’ve had a few days off spinning, but got back into it yesterday and today and can’t WAIT to show you what has been flowing from the magic wheel since the Herbaliser and Fire Cracker. Have you been to visit Mia? I think the full name of her blog is Inspiration by Mia, and she is a truly inspiring blogger! Her crochet is gorgeous, her knitting makes me weak at the knees and her spinning, well, it is indescribably beautiful! I was trying to find an appropriate adjective then, but nothing was coming to me… you’ll have to pop over and see for yourself!
OK then lovelies, I’m off to have dinner and read my book… thank you for popping in! I’ll leave you with a photo of my latest project which is making me feel on top of the world!
Sending you lots of good vibes!
