$5.42...last day for giveaway...update on crocheting...

Hi there to all who show kindness by reading my oh so not professional blog....when you look around there are truly spectacular ones about...but i love them all!!!!i especially love the ones with lots of heart...enough of that!!!

Today i needed to pop down the street for a litte top up of school supplies and came across these pencils...yes, maybe not a truly spec brand,but they said they were vibrant, and i love love love bright colour, so i thought i'd whack them in with my other little purchases...at $5.42, on special!!! its not alot to miss if they turn out to be crappy!!!!

So, just then...i doodled the image at the top..yes...not overly smooth, but so bright...it looks smoother in real life and the colour really pops...

so i will be using these in my next piece of "art"!!!

will show you the results when i figure out what i'm going to do!!!

Don't forget this is the last day for my eizabeth kartchner book giveaway...just be a follower if you're not already and leave a comment...hugs to those of you that have already entered...and good luck...


oh!!!!....here is the latest of the crocheted blanket i am making....i am happy with it, it may take me all winter...but that's ok!!!!

I am thinking i need to learn how to do different crocheting, and i am totally hopeless at trying to hide the leftover wool when i change a colour, but i really love the effect of all the colour on this rug....

well...that's it for now...
until next time
lots of it

Love your blog, just the way it is!
As for crocheting, beautiful. Funny, my Mom just sent me a link to another blogger that loves to crochet. Check it out. Like the two of us, she loves color! http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/
