Lifelines Part 2



I didn't think this photograph was on my laptop but miraculously it was. As you can see it is a bit glaring to have two glaring lights in the middle of my project but I think you can see the details a bit better.

Today is one of those days when I am fighting off a cold. I've finished the first half of my turtle bag(photos to come soon). It's hand embroidered using my tangled thread technique(the word technique makes it sound so more interesting then pulling threads out of a knotted mess don't you think?) although I think I added more to my knotted pile then I took out of it. I haven't decided whether I'm going to do the bead thing. I'm not really a bead gal myself and I am making it for myself. But I'll finish the back and then decide.

My hub is home and we put up our Christmas tree(yesterday actually but it fell over, so we had to redo it). No lights or ornaments yet, I like to do that by myself and my hubby is glad and my son well he's 16 he doesn't care. We are doing a bit of a mellow Christmas thing this year. Not too many outside lights, just a lit wreath and one of those metal lit Christmas tree. Although I love to look at other people's lights I don't really like to do them myself. How totally uncreative but in case I haven't told you I'm not really the outdoorsy type.

Nothing much else to talk about, my real life is kind of delightfully boring at the moment because we are waiting for a snow storm. So I think I will bid you all adieu and hopefully tomorrow I will have something more interesting to talk it.
