I just managed to finish my sewing for now, made a curtain for the kitchen window, for coming xmas season, and also had a handbag with too short strap, so sewed in some extra to make it longer.
I'm getting quite excited for xmas, I have another task of getting my livingroom sorted soon.
Too much crap and too small flat. :(
I also decorated my greatgrans pic for Dia de los Muertos. Didn't have enough stuff to make an Ofrenda, but got the candles out and found some icons and greatgrans scarf to hang. All this opened up a shitstorm from my "relatives" who said I desecrated her memory by doing this. What in the name of fuck?
Karelian folk used to have similar celebrations to DDLM, they went to have dinner at loved ones graves, sung songs and gave the dead their own portions of food.
I'll put piccies here of the stuff I just loaded to my FB page too. This is what has kept me busy lately.....

It snowed  this morning. Wish the snow would stay, as it makes even this grim city look relatively pretty, and gives such a cheer to everybody.
That's it for now.

Gone but not forgotten.....

Fuck, I have totally forgot to write anything here. I'm having my usual attention span with crafts, and now I've added painting and decorating to this. Starting a wall and then ending up painting all the furniture in the room is pretty much how I roll.
So 'scuse me while I'm brainfarting about.
Will return soon with more pics and something to say.

Here's a pic of one of the best shows ever. If you haven't seen it already, do check it out!
I'm so miffed I missed out on a good sale for the box set. Ain't no way in hell I'll pay the 40-80 quid that seems to be the common pricerange for that....

Until next time
