I think my mojo has returned. I was getting frustrated with my watercolours; deep down I didn't want picture perfect yet that was what I was aiming for (if that makes any sense at all). After all, I could use my camera for picture-perfect. I think that's why I find artists such as Frida inspirational.
Anyhow, I dug out my watercolours and brushes, my creative juices are flowing again starting with an autumn watercolour of falling leaves, and also a tree.
Here is the beginning of two pieces :-

A recently completed hat thanks to http://turvid.blogspot.com/2009/04/free-pattern-anyway-chunky-hat-in-super.html using some lovely chunky wool and a not so happy model.

Here is a photo of a pair of socks I am knitting at the one time using one needle (i.e. magic loop) - I am sharing the photo particularly for my very good friend Lyn. I want these socks to be quite long (and warm) therefore will just keep on knitting until I run out of yarn.
Here is one ply of handspun BFL "Blue Lagoon" from http://www.ewegivemetheknits.com/ - I just love the colour. When I have completed another bobbin I would like to make either socks or a shawl from this.

As part of a fun challenge in a spinning group this month was to spin fabric ! Here is some fabric I ripped into strips and then spun it with glittery thread (which I always call "lurex" - it comes from being obsessed with the 70s).
