Winter Light

Bruce Monro has another FABULOUS selection of light installations in the Waddesdon Manor gardens this Christmas called Winter Light. It was freezing cold but great to see more of Bruce's creations. Works include "Gathering of the clans" which has neon pegs on washing lines representing birds perching, the wonderful "Field of light" which is a flower garden of changing colours and a huge dome called "Beacon" made from plastic bottles. If you live nearby it finishes soon so try and get there if you can. The house is beautifully decorated too : )

Fairytail of New York - The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl

We are learning this at choir at the mo. It's great fun full of love and hate plus it''s a classic Christmas song. I love singing the "You scumbag you maggot" bit which should go down well tomorrow when we sing for the lights switch on in Leighton Buzzard : )

One of these days...

We went and saw Gaz Combes (ex frontman of Supergrass) last night in  a teeny tiny venue in Milton Keynes. Must have only been 200 people there. He crafts songs brilliantly, plays piano, guitar and drums. What a talent and what a great night.

Time for tea

I've been experimenting with a bit of mixed media stitching. I have to admit I'm not sure about it. I normally like clean blocks of colour (I think this is a bit grey) but I have enjoyed trying something different and will defo do more and develop the idea : )

Smashing it up...

It's very therapeutic smashing tiles and crockery to do some mosaicing (sp?). I made this for a friends birthday : )
