Just stuff

Another day, spent spinning my wheels and nothing done in the studio (unless you want to count the fact that I moved one thing from one side of the worktable to the other). Sigh. I'm starting to feel the usual 'downer' I traditionally get in February and I was so hopeful that this year would be different. Winter is getting to me, as it always does. We had a few days of semi-decent weather and now it's back to snow and cold again, so I expect that's what has put me over the edge; that, and not having had any time to be creative.

So, instead of continuing to whine (which I do SO well, don't you think?)...I have a few sites you might like to visit:
- has a whole lot of information, but primarily focuses on yarn comparisons which is great if you want to make something and can't find the called-for yarn
- is under the banner of 'Artists United to Benefit Ovarian Cancer' and they are currently showing large number of very interesting handmade charms
- has tons of links to free knitting and crochet patterns
- and, another note about the OzBushfireAppeal currently ongoing at I know I mentioned this a couple of days ago,but you might like to check it out again because there have been a lot of items added


  1. I know just how you feel! I'm trying to think of something we could do together to help lift this fog of gloom. I soon as I do so I'll give you a shout!! Meanwhile hang in there and think of denim!

  2. Get out some sunny beads and some orangey fabric and fme pink somethings and make yourself a cheerful little SAD buddy :}
    Hmm, sounds like a good idea for me too :}


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
