Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.

 


Work in progress:- Freeform Crochet Wall Hanging

I am currently working on a wall hanging.  I am working freeform crochet onto a framework of withies and with a hessian backdrop.  I will be posting more details as it progresses.

I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries

I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries and getting inspired down in the Borders amongst some beautiful flowers and greenery.  Now have the basis for a new series of work, good timing with NEOS just round the corner.  Watch this space!!
