WOYWW AND AWAY WITH THE BLUES

Never really did like the colour blue although I wear denims and have the odd blue top and a coat! Blue was, and still is, my least fave colour. Having said that, I own a magnificent blue wall hanging from a crafting friend, my 'peg leg' has blue eyes (although sometimes they come close to being purple!!!!!!!) the inside of my motorhome has blue upholstery (in the main that is), my blue distress inks are fantastic and my very special pal (Susi) loves blue. So what's the problem - NONE - the blues (not the colour) have gone.
January blues must have come my way this year. Never happened before. I used to suffer from S.A.D. in September when I was at work and always got ill around then, but since I retired - properly - nothing. So, whatever went wrong - don't happen  again - I don't want you. I'm a happy person, soz, crafter. LOOK:
Another wall hanging in the making.
Do I see another on the shelf waiting for attention??
OOOOpss!! the game is up. Ok, I took my photos last night, and yes, you can spot a glass of wine - wine and water actually - and you can see my 'Tim workshop' cash all tied in a lovely white and silver gem embellished bit of ribbon, but the wine is not responsible for my being 'happy', this wonderful hobby is. I really do enjoy every minute of it. Even the bits that have me pulling my hair out because I can't think of what to do next or what to do with that piece of paper etc. It is so special, as are all you crafters out there.
I'm off now to have a look at your spaces, that through our wonderful creator, Julia, you have agreed to open to the world.
PS
'Peg leg' has completed his Fender Stratocaster, for those of you who have been following it's progress.
Not bad eh??

A Stratocaster with a Whammy bar even! It's fabulous! well Done T - an idea: T can take his Fender Stratocaster and stand outside B&Q on a Wednesday and busk and the proceeds go to 'Joanne's T.H. fund'! Must be a Wednesday though!! xxx

My dear mother suffered very badly from the blues, but because she actually love blue, she used to say:'That darn black dog is sitting in front of the back door again', It always makes me smile when I think of her.
So glad the black dog decided to leave your house. The best cure is always crafting, no space in your head for negativity when you craft, is there?

I think I suffer a little with sad ...I have noticed it since I moved to Scotland and it is dark by 3.30 in December and it is so overcast ... some days ... that the lights are on all day. I have been feeling that a weight is lifting and there is a touch of creativity creeping in to my head now that the days are a little longer.

Not bad! That guitar is beautiful, I hope he plays it like Steve Howe!! I'm a bit sad today, but that's due entirely to the white stuff outside the windows!

Love the rose you made. Interesting desk and all. Thanks for a peak.

Julia Dunnit said...

Wow, the guitar is amazing!
Blue is hard to avoid isn't it - but as you say, it doesn't have to make you blue - I think the time of year has to be fought against a bit! I like the look of your wall hanging - and am impressed that there's another lined up already...multicrafting!

That guitar is looking awesome. It's amazing what a little sunshine can do. Sometimes that sunshine comes in the form of doing something we love. Happy Crafting.

Thanks for the peek and sharing. Hugs, Marjo lucky #1.

Now that we've hit February the thought of Spring just around the corner cheers us all up - blue isn't my favourite colour either. And, you are so right about this wonderful hobby/occupation/pre-occupation of ours - it's made my retirement a very happy time. Elizabeth x #96
