I haven't done a knitting update for a really long time. Here's what I've got on my needles at the moment:
I'm currently working on an art project focusing on the combination of knitting and painting. All the pieces will be painted, but will feature knitting (and some sewing) that I'll be doing. I don't want to give too much away just yet.... you'll see soon.
I'm hoping after I block the knitting I've done so far, it'll become flatter. I'm such a tight knitter!
Anyway, what else have I been doing? BAKING!
Vegan Pop Tarts. Nom Nom Nom.
|After baking, and with strawberry icing|
I found these cute little silicone cupcake cup things in the pound shop in town, I got the last 2 boxes!!! (2 in each box) I was very happy. I must try them out soon.
I also purchased Arrietty on DVD. For those who don't know, I love Studio Ghibli films and Arrietty is the latest. I went to see it last year in the cinema (the subtitled version) and love it. I recommend it to everyone!
I haven't worn this yet, but I got a new blouse from 'Ever Ours'. It's very sweet. I saw it online and got it straight away to cheer myself up after a totally rubbish day. I loved how they wrapped it up like a present:
I got new glasses last month, I don't think I ever got round to showing you guys! I love them, I wish I was around in the 50's/60's: (they're from www.glassesdirect.co.uk)
It's nearly Wrestlemania.... I get very excited over it. I've even booked the day after off work so I can stay up VERY late and watch it. I think I know how most matches are going to go already, and I haven't been overly amazed for the last couple of Wrestlemania's, but I'm still looking forward to it a lot.
Anyway.....I found this dvd and book going cheap online:
The DVD is one of the worst things I've watched in a long time. It's just rubbish. It reminded me of an educational video they'd make you watch at school in like 1992. REALLY badly made. I haven't started the book yet, but I flicked through and it looks alright. It's about British wrestling and how it pretty much died.
My friend Gill is getting married and I got my invite a couple of days ago. I just wanted to show you how lovely the invitation was. I loved the wax stamp detail:
This post has been a bit all over the place. But I've had all these photo's saved for ages, and it was now or never really!
