Colour and its effect
I had noticed that the grey was looking scruffy and the hair was flat:( Some of that is this silly rash which is also in my hair. I would quite like to be grey if it was grey consistently but it isn't. I have approx 20% grey and that just looks so silly. Also I love being a redhead, it goes with my Leo character and also with my love for bright bright colours:) Anyway I digress.
This afternoon I finally got round to colouring my hair and it is now vibrantly red again. It cheers me and makes me smile, not a bad thing.
I decided I would show you some of my older projects that I don't think have been on the blog. There will be a current knitting update , maybe tomorrow.
This was a knitted bag I did from some colinette mixtures. I added the fox as a fastening because it looked well with the bag. I beaded a fringe for the bottom. Pattern my own.
I used to do paper arts many moons ago and took part in a postcard exchange. Each month you made and sent 5 postcards to random people on a list. You in turn received 5 different ones back. I'm thinking of starting to play again in this exchange as I have a yen to get back to paper crafts as well as knitting etc. Can you read the writing? It says "Faery is visible from the corner of your eye, a glimpse a glance as you pass by, the merest sight then goodbye"
This piece was embroidery. I dyed the fabric and most of the threads. Then a simple matter of layering threads and hand and machine stitching. This piece was sunset.
I also used to do beading, as did Mr Mog. We went to weekly classes. I much preferred freeform beading(naturally) to doing set pieces. This is a pin I made.
This is a collection of tiny witches on broomsticks I made.
We had a long day yesterday visiting Mr Mog's mum. It started out quite well, we visited Castle Howe and it was fabulous to be among all the old trees on the grove.
Sadly when we got to the hospital mum wasn't in the ward. When we asked a nurse where she was we were told she was in a room on her own. She had contracted MRSA. I asked the nurse why they hadn't phoned Mr Mog or his sister and was told it isn't hospital policy to phone. They tell family when they arrive?
Mr Mog wondered what would happen if family lived abroad?
We had to don apron and gloves before going in. Mum is not doing too badly and was quite well in herself. We however would not have gone that day if we had known. I still have this awful rash all over the body and obviously don't want to catch anything else. As doesn't Mr Mog. We did see mum but didn't stay too long. What also surprised me was that we had to don gloves etc yet nothing was on the door and a friend of hers called in with another patient from another ward who she was visiting. They didn't cover up. No wonder that MRSA is rife if this happens.
