What am I good at?


Trying to take photographs. This is Cairness House, huge stately home we can see from our sitting room window. It was bathed in the evening sunset.

No - you can't see it very well - as I realised later I had the camera set on 'Use for Bright Snow Scene.' But I tried.

My work in progress at the moment is this hoodie for a 3 to 6 month old. The bigger they get, the more tedious the knitting! The buttons are wrong, fortunately not sewed on yet so I can change them for something a bit more chunky. But I am trying.

My water colour of sheep in a snow storm. Did not really think snow fell in clumps as big as I have done them. But this will be our Christmas Card this year. Very trying for the recipients!

My motto is - "If a jobs worth doing badly, its worth doing."

Decorating the Christmas tree draws nigh, never got that right either, but I try.

Your card looks great to me - very Christmassy. I don't think I'd enjoy your stretch limo, too travel sick. I'll just do the wine bit. Roll on December and then I can get into the Christmas spirit with the decorations and tree - oh and also the sherry! Just a wee one.
Love from Mum

I love the fact that you try, is that the DB Chickens in the pocket hoodie I spy, I gave up on mine I'm afraid (but I did try), I also love the sheep painting, you could argue that they are almost having a snowball fight, give me big puffy snow anyday. x

You're too hard on yourself, sweet Jill. Your work - the photo, hoodie, and painting - are all wonderful! You are a very talented lady!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. You made my day so much brighter!

Hi Lily, It is DB but not that one. That is still sitting in the WIP bag as I too gave up on it. Tell a lie, I did the hat.
