The shock of it!

I know ... and you were thinking, she's forgotten how to blog!
Well to be honest, you're not really that wrong! Although I think it's been a lack of my creativity that's been holding me back - I have done a few layouts and a few cards, but they just haven't "clicked” and I can see in the not too distant future they’ll be taken apart and re-done.

Anyway, something I have been wanting to do for sometime now, is crochet … I bought a magazine at the beginning of the year, and said that this was the year I would learn – but for some reason, it just hasn’t clicked with me. So on a recent shopping trip in Dorking, I came across the most beautiful shop …. The Fluff-a-torium. Such a great name, for such an amazing shop! She teaches felt making, crochet, and knitting, oh it’s just gorgeous. Anyway, while chatting to her in the shop, she said she had one place left on her beginners class, so I quickly snapped it up – and today was the day! Well, I had a fabulous time – everyone was great, lovely people to chat too, and the teacher was so good. At first it just wasn’t working for me, then all of a sudden, it was like a bulb had been switched on LOL. Ok, I’m not saying it’s all falling into place, but it certainly is something I’ll keep working at … anyway, here is the start of it – I’ll let you know how it gets on.














As for my creativity ... well, I think I just need to sit at my craft desk and get on with it - hopefully, soon something will click in place, with that too.
