Holiday - Sensatori Sharm El Sheikh

Hi everybody

Well for the past few weeks I've been sunning myself on a wonderful beach belonging to the Sensatori Sharm El Sheikh 5 star hotel.

We stayed there last year for the first time and decided to go again, after having visited Sharm six times previously.

We had a wonderful time and it was wall to wall sunshine every day.  Here are some pictures of the hotel and the beach.  Enjoy!!

The path that ran along the front of the complex facing the beach.  Lovely and spotlessly clean 

We loved the beach and sunbathed here every day

We walked past the infinity pool every day as well.  This was attached to two other pools, one of which was an activity pool

Panoramic shots of the beach and sea.

The hotel even had an adult part too where there was a pool and sunshades and where you had to be over 18.

On the walk back from the beach part of the complex had swim up rooms which you can see in this photo and on top underneath the sails is another sunbathing area next to the infinity pool and bar area.

Great view from the buffet restaurant in the outside seating area.

And most nights we visited Casanova The Camel to feed him oranges and apples.

I'm now feeling rested and raring to go with my crafty projects and have already finished two book folds which need decorating and also a few crochet projects.  Will be updating my website very soon with lots of new projects but in the meantime I have a fair to prepare for which I'm doing at a local school fair in July. 

Take care.

Yarn Dyeing

Hello everybody

Well I haven't done any yarn dyeing since the end of last summer and forgot about a lot of the stuff that I'd dyed, but since I've been working hard on revamping my craft room to organise it so it's more art and painting friendly, I've come across them all and as I hadn't shared any photos with you of my  dyeing for a while I thought I'd share them.

First up was a blank canvas knitted base that I bought as long ago as June 2015 from Woolfest.  The canvas is a long knitted piece of fabric with two separate ends so that you can dye it however you choose and then unravel it to make two identical balls of yarn.  I used a length of cling film on top of the work top and used Kool Aid to dye the canvas and then wrapped it up in cling film and put it in the microwave.  Once it had cooled I then rinsed it and popped it outdoors on the line to dry and then once dry I unravelled it into two equal and identical balls which are now waiting in my stash r…

Long time no post....

Hello everyone

Well I know I've not blogged for months and months, but I've been really busy and have been making the most of other social media platforms to chat with happy crafters and the like. 

But I'm back now and hopefully I should get to blogging maybe once a week or a couple of times a month.....who knows. 

Let me tell you what I've been up to whilst I've been absent from blogland.


1.  I had a big birthday in the summer and got a wonderful birthday present of a Townie bike and so spent every spare moment during the spring and summer (cos I got my present a little earlier than expected) taking in parks and other beautiful places and getting some fresh air and exercise and loved every minute of it.  But now that the nights are now darker earlier and winter is setting in I'm not able to get out and so she's been put to bed for a few months until the clocks go forward and the light nights come back.  So....hurry up winter and do one!!!

2.  Just…

Hi everyone 

Hope you've been keeping well since my last post. 
I've been attending art group still and learning new techniques as I go. 
I've done a few paintings since I shared my owl one, which I'll be sharing later this month, but here is my recent completed one from start to finish. I used watercolours from Royal Langnickel and water soluble oil pastels which were really cheap from The Works, fur texture created with KohINoor pencils and Posca white pen. Hope you like it. Here's some close ups and the finished project all framed up.

Starting to watercolour the background and the background and watercoloured bunny beginning to add detail  Close up of the detail using the Kohinoor pencils  Hello there.....just look at the texture on the fur.

 I achieved the background flowers by just dabbing a paint brush in multi colours and then dabbing them onto the paper after adding brush strokes of green for the stems and grass.  Boo......just look at my beautiful eyes.  a…
