Fabulous Birds and Amazing Animals

Happy Sunday!

In my last post I mentioned that I was about to embark on an extraordinary adventure and it really did exceed any expectation or imagination I had when I wrote that. I travelled to Sri Lanka with Mr RH and two of our sons to go to a wedding that included a church service, a buddhist ceremony (where traditional dancers/acrobats fetched first the groom then the bride) and a reception with the biggest chandeliers I’ve ever seen, a banquet and dancing into the early hours. The other guests wore saris in all colours and gold bangles and it really was exactly like falling into a scene from a fairytale…

Now I am back in the Makery. It is still disguised as a spare bedroom and its contents are still dispersed around the house although it seems like a very long time since all the Christmas guests went home. But how can this not turn into a good making year with such a fortuitous beginning!

Before I set it all back to rights, I am working on my quilt for the next Endeavourers reveal day (February 1st) but that is currently a secret so, instead, I thought I’d share some photos from our visit to Wilpattu National Park. (The following photos are shown in slideshows and, unfortunately, they will not display properly if you are viewing this post in an email).

I wish you a belated Happy New Year! And I’m looking forward to seeing what 2020 brings for all of us :)

These little cardigans were my final makes of 2019, which in general was a very bad year for making but ended with a flurry of knitting.

I am about to go on an extraordinary adventure for ten days but after that I hope action will resume here on a more consistent basis than of late and I will try again to sort out the tricksy inlinkz business :)

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a very Happy New Year filled with yarns, fabrics, threads or what you will :)

Merry Mid Winter

Figgy Gosling

Last year, around this time, I wrote a small story called ‘The Figgy Gosling’ but I didn’t share it here because I didn’t have time to make pictures. Somehow, a year has rolled by and I haven’t got much further…

But I do like to make a Mid Winter post and mark the fact that our shortest day is over so here is the Figgy Gosling, with his story and further illustrations to follow. (Thank you to The Graphics Fairy for the holly :) )

I wish you the Merriest of Christmases and the Happiest of New Years!
