It's a glamorous life...

Hi folks...I do LOVE this crazy crafty job and it's fun most of the time (ignore the current moaning minnie kitting grumbles) but I bet you had no idea how glamorous it gets on occasions...especially when me and my furry cubbyhole mate set out on a foraging expedition to the darkest depths of a creepy forest...on a particularly wet chucking it down rainy morning...
in pursuit of some "Christmas Retreat project" pine cones...
and of course these elusive little devils are always tucked away deep in the tangled undergrowth requiring a down on your hands and knees recovery operation. It looks like soaking wet knees along with painty hands and mucky nails are all part and parcel of this "glamorous career" choice...perhaps I should have read the small print on the job description more carefully. And folks who sneak off work on Fridays find themselves playing catch-up on Saturdays so it's time to put the kettle on...jump back on the production line and get the kitting for Project 5 underway....not complaining...just saying.

 Enjoy your weekend whatever you plan on doing.
Hugs Kath

  3. I have to admit... I was lazy and bought some! But then, they're not exactly as abundant in Leeds as they were in Ballater! x

  4. It looks like it was worth all that scrambling round Kath, you got a great haul there! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Anne xx

  5. Looking forward to seeing what you make with your little cones...always nice walking through woodland whatever the weather



Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
