Things Happening In Threes

Work in progress

It is cold, cold, cold in my corner of the world at the moment.  Not cold like snowing cold.  It doesn't get that cold around these parts.

I am busy, busy, busy getting ready for my exhibition.  I have a photographer coming early next week to photograph all my work in readiness for having fine art prints made.  I can't wait to see how they look.

I am snuggling, snuggling, snuggling under hand knitted blankets.  My Mum makes the most beautiful, colourful hand made blankets.  We have two of them, which means everyone gets to snuggle under their own blanket with their own cat.

I am cooking, cooking, cooking comfort food.  Sausages with cauliflower cheese and baked tomatoes for dinner.  Lemon Delicious pudding for dessert.   Hopefully tomorrow I'll get around to making the pea and ham soup.

I've been rising early, early, early in the mornings.  I'm training myself to get up with the birds everyday.  I like it.  It's peaceful and a little bit magical somehow.  I drink cups of coffee, and write, and paint.  Somedays I go to the bakery and buy gorgeous fresh bread still warm from the oven.

I am twittering, twittering, twittering and having so much fun.  You can find me on Twitter at @tinniegirl.

I am crossing, crossing, crossing my fingers and toes that chunkychooky wins the feeling stitchy rainbow of stitches contest.  Did you see the amazing piece that she submitted.

I am loving, loving, loving my life these days.
