Sorry for the terrible photo, but there wasn't much light indoors this afternoon, anyway, here they are..my 'Advent 3' - otherwise known as 'Almost finished', 'Not much longer' and 'Help, not yet begun!'. Three Christmas hats for my three chaps. Now there are many elements to Christmas that are a touch stressful...this year I just haven't been able to settle down to card writing and I'll do almost anything humanly possibly to avoid the shops! But I must say that hat knitting, on the whole, is a remarkably peaceful activity, and by carrying them around I can get a wee bit done here and there. And the wools are rather lovely, so I feel happy every time I pick them up. L-R we have Noro Kureyon, Rowan Pure Wool Aran and Manos Wool Clasica. So who knows, perhaps I'll get them done? At least the door is decorated and I had some time for a blissful frosty walk out in the hill today.
Our family are members of the L'Arche Inverness Community. I am a mother of two boys and married to a delightful Frenchman. He is the leader of a therapeutic garden project at L'Arche, but is also a metal engraver, jeweller and artist. I spend my time between home and L'Arche, as a House Assistant. I love sewing, knitting, photography and baking - life is too short! I speak a few languages badly. We are privileged to live in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands where we often sense our Creator. I enjoy telling stories and using Godly Play.
I take my photos using a Canon EOS 400D. If you want to use any of them, please be lovely enough to ask me first.
If you see anything on my blog that you are interested in, please do get in touch! I will do my best to reply to any questions you might have.
