This is a picture on my kitchen wall. It was done by a very talented friend of mine (Sonia Dobbs, now Sonia Orr), a copy of a photo taken of my grandma and my youngest son when he was 2. I love it - mum had it done for me as a surprise one year for my birthday - I cried so much when I unwrapped it - Grimble as we called her had not long since left this mortal coil. I'm only showing it to you today because I didn't know what picture to put on today and as I like it, thought you might too. I have lots of pictures done by Sonia as well as some sculpture things - sorry, don't know the technical term! Will probably show you more of her work again one day.
You'll never guess what - I've actually finished something! No not knitting related or even cake related. But Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And I thought it was fantastic, the best one yet. It would have been slightly better if my children (who'd sneaked a look at the ending) hadn't told me what was going to happen, but hey, never mind, I loved it all the same. I have never read a book as quickly as this. It was great, love it, love it, love it. Will save up to buy it on cassette I think now. Sadly saving is something that 's not coming easily to me at the moment, thanks to this.
Oh and have you seen this - the prettiest scarf I've ever seen. Want one. Startitis is rearing its ugly head again!
