I could have done with some company today, but as my work colleague is off I am stuck with myself. Things are not going well at the moment, hence the reason for company. I would explain but I don’t have the energy or the time to at the moment. I have been doing a lot of soul searching and I keep drawing blanks.

On a cheery note the beret that was on the needles is now on it’s way to becoming a cowl to keep my neck snugly warm, after a small incident in my handbag resulting in the stitches falling off the needle, I may need 1 more ball of yarn to finish it though.

Tonight I need to at least make enough room to get to my scrapping desk, I’m not in the mood to do any to be honest but I have CJs to get on with and a deadline for the end of this week on a layout, so I need to at least fake some mojo tonight. Last night I sorted my beads out, I must start making some bits with them, I still have loads, but I put all the ones I could bear to part with in a box to find new homes for! When I can see some work surface or even floor I will be putting these so they are out somewhere because when I see them I use them!

I think now I will have a little look at my Scarf Style book and try and make a coffee!!

Ciao all

I keep writing about posts at home and then don’t get round to actually putting them online! So this is my 4th attempt since Christmas, of course I can’t remember any of the stuff I wanted to post about now. I have decided to changed the name of the blog to “Shell Bean coming round the mountain…” courtesy of Jo, thanks hunny!!!! I decided that a change was needed as my scrapping has diminished quite a bit lately; in fact I’m only doing CJ’s at the moment. I do need to get back into it as I have a page to do! Before I can do anything I need to clear a space on the desk that is bigger than a five pence piece! All of my Christmas knitting was completed and seemed to be liked by all the recipients, I was hoping to take pictures of them but I ran out of time I’m afraid. Of course I know need to make myself a new banner which I will try and do over the weekend, no promises though! In an effort to push myself creativitly and also because I love colour I have signed up for Project Spectrum, I love the idea of this because I’m not limited to one type of craft, so I can pick and chose. Can’t wait to get started now. On the needles at the moment I have a beret knitted in Sirdar Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran in Vintage Red , this wool is fantastic to knit with, I can see me saving up for a bit more of it! Well I haven’t finished what I wanted to say but my time online for today is running out so I will publish to here and continue as soon as life allows!

I will be back with a more comprehensive post later! I also need to change my header to reflect the new blog title!
