... as I never seem to have time to do things.
Somehow I find the time to spend too much time being distracted by lurking on Ravelry
Whenever I mention it as a resource to others I ask them not to blame me if they get to spend too much time on it.
I use it as a means of keeping up with friends, and it couldn't be bettered for that.
We had a steep learning curve at the Art Room
as we started running our sessions in the much larger premises in January. We are making a name for ourselves, and enjoying the process, but it would be wonderful if we could make enough money to sustain ourselves and then pay ourselves some wages.
This card was made for me by a 5 year old who attended a couple of sessions back in the spring.
Alongside my voluntary work for the Art Room, I did the usual monthly sessions for CamTAD
now taking place in the Salvation Army hall here in Long Eaton.
As usual I went to some of the stitching shows.
Art Room commitments meant that I had to miss out on a couple this year.
Some of them were a bit quieter this autumn, but it meant that I had time to teach crochet in depth.
I have been crocheting more anyway recently.
Thanks to the prominent exhibit of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef
at the shows at the NEC, Ally Pally and Harrogate we had several people wanting to learn.
In September I had to get a new phone, and all these pictures were taken on it.
I keep forgetting that I always have a camera on me, and miss out on some shots.
I had the presence of mind to take this picture walking home from the station one day. Had I been at the Art Room that afternoon I would have missed it as it would have been behind me as I cycled home.
We did find some time to do some other things, and this was one of the sparklers we took along to a Bonfire Night party with friends in Derby.
