Here are some pics of the tea cup painting. This is what it looked like on Saturday.

A little bit blurry, but you get the idea. I'm still getting used to the camera on my phone!

This is how it started out - they look a bit like watermelons.

What, what it's 27th November. How did that happen?

Here are the November Care Packages for the Oh Comely! November box swap.

I got loads of lovely treats including: a delicious looking recipe, an interesting article about Stephen Shore who I knew nothing about and whose work sounds right up my street; an american Martin Parr, a felt Christmas decoration (eek!), hot chocolate on a spoon (yummy), some cool photos taken by Emma and a sketch book and pencil!

THANK YOU EMMA - I love my box.

I hope Emma liked her box. This is what it looked like before I sent it!

It's such a great idea and reminded me how much I love getting and sending stuff in the post.

The green flowery sticker was bought from the lovely Pavinee's Etsy shop here. The pompom was made using the pompom maker from Madrid - see earlier post. And a cool black and white photo I found in the street of some people up the coast at one of my favourite spots, Tossa de Mar in the 1960s.

General wonderfulness!

I'm also taking part in this box swap. I just got my swapee and she's vegan so I need to think outside the box as far as knitted things go, stuff with wool at least, are out of the question.

Oh comely is a magazine and blog full of lots of lovely treats... click here to see more!
A little card I made! Inspired by the gift... some fantastic crochet.

I've also been making pom poms and started a second scarf! (hoping it'll be ready in time for the Bremen trip in two weeks time)

Hello November!

A few pics from outside.

You may remember a book I started last year when we went drawing down at the port. Well, a year later in baking hot sunshine I continued it.
