taking stock 1

You may or may not know this, but I am doing this amazing on-line course at the moment called





I have already learned quite a bit and have made a few changes (can you spot them?) and tweaked my ‘about me page. Every week Pip gives us an assignment (or two) to do, one of which was to take stock of what we are doing. Well, here goes:

Making:  Too many wip”s to mention

Cooking: Moroccan Lamb Tagine

Drinking: Coffee

Reading: Orhan Pamuk’s – Istanbul Memories and the City

Wanting: A VW Camper Van – so I could kit it out in crochet!

Looking: At stitch directories

Playing: Louis Armstrong – What a wonderful world (my favourite song of all times)

Deciding: On next project

Wishing: For warm weather and sunshine

Enjoying: My family

Waiting: To hear about a design commission

Liking: Too many things to mention

Wondering: If I should change anything else on my blog

Loving: My family

Pondering: Over colour scheme for next project

Considering: A photographic course

Watching: 24 Live another day

Hoping: My girl will do well in her exams

Marvelling: At wizardry of photos taken by others on IG

Needing: Better sleep

Smelling: Rose Water

Following: My Marrakesh

Noticing: The mess in my studio

Knowing: Tomorrow is another day

Thinking: About colour

Feeling: Happy

Admiring: Simple style

Sorting: My book stash

Buying: A Manual for my new camera

Getting: A friend to teach me some sewing

Bookmarking: All the other Pipster’s blogs

Disliking: Dark Chocolate and people who are always late

Opening: The manual for my camera…soon

Giggling: Over nothing

Feeling: A little unsure at times

Snacking: Chocolate biscuits

Coveting: Cabbages & Roses dresses

Wishing: For less violence in the world

Helping: My friend to knit her first pair of socks

Hearing: Birds singing in my garden

I really enjoyed doing this and might have to make this a quarterly feature on the blog. Still not sure about last weeks task of doing a podcast though, never been so keen on them, and hearing my own voice…I am not so sure I will like that. Might give it a miss!!!

What I have enjoyed a lot is making lots new blogging friends. Meeting new people this way, sharing the up’s and down’s during the course and giving each other support has been tremendous so far, and I am looking forward to the rest of the course.

I can’t wait to see what Pip has in store for us this week.

Why not have a go at stock taking yourself, you can always copy my list and see what you come up with.

Enjoy! X.
