A while back I wrote about this little piece~in~the~making. And so, it is finished. It was a slow creation, in part because I did practically nothing over the summer. Yes, that's how long it took. I actually started it last May! (Shame!)
But, yes, now it is finished. And it is now hanging on the wall of my friend Joan's house, just up the Sea Road.
'And there in the quiet valley they spied the little house,
lights all atwinkle in the dusk...'
There is a story somewhere in all this. I'm just having to figure it all out as I go. But I have never done anything so satisfying before. I think it's the smallness. And the simplicity. And I am ready to start the next one.
So, an idea has been brewing in my busy head.
A give~away is overdue, methinks. I never did one for Milkmoon's second birthday last October, though I had intended to. And now, this little blog of mine has hit 1000 followers! Something which I am endlessly incredulous and awed and so, so humbled by.
So. I propose the next piece will be for one of you lovely people. It will be small. Otherwise I may be old and grey before I finish it! I estimate 12cm x 8cm. And as I have a notebook of idea's ready to go it will be started tomorrow, and a regular update will be posted, I promise.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. Most of you know the drill. And on Friday we'll pull a name out of the hat.
And meanwhile I'm finishing up a little something that's been forlornly waiting to be finished for a while now so I can donate it to CraftHope for Haiti., which is an Etsy shop which is sending all it's proceeds to Doctors Without Borders.
Do check it out if you are looking for a way to donate towards Haiti.
Edit: Okaaay! So we dropped a couple of followers, but the giveaway still stands lol! :-)
