An apology


Dear Mariah,

You know I didn't mean to abandon you - it's just that other things got in the way, there was lace - well, lace is a new love, I must admit. Sorry. There were gifts for other people, and - oh, let's face it, I don't really have a very good excuse apart from not having the mental energy to follow complicated cable charts. But I'm back, and this is for good - honest! See - I knit nearly half your second sleeve in two days, and your cables have really clicked with me, I barely need your chart now - so our love only deepens.

With adoration,

Jejune

And progress on my latest painting - a Christmas themed one (thanks Kate for the suggestion, which was blindingly obvious once you mentioned it :) Will be working on this and hopefully finishing it today. It's a remnant of mince pie on the saucer - oh! the things I do for my art (suffer, suffer, suffer), LOL ;)



Edit for American readers : Mince Pies are sweet, made with fruit mince. You can read more about their origins and stuff here!

  2. I've been "talking" to you so much with emails that I forgot I hadn't checked your blog! What a lot of catching up to do - the Christmas theme art is brilliant; love the lap rug, too. Very, very stylish. He'll love it! And of course, again, congrats on the house!

  4. Is that "vague" bit two repeats down intentional or have I just stuffed up your day?

  5. No, it's fine, it is in the pattern - a bit odd, but definitely there :)

  7. OMG - Shazmina and I were just talking today about how you should do a Christmas themed painting!!! I was kinda hoping it would be a knitted Christmas stocking, but that's not nearly as fun to eat as a mince pie!!!

  9. Glad you got the house and are back on track with Mariah. Also saw a recipe in the newspaper recently for that Africian hot sauce you made a while back, and that made me think of you. Take care...

  10. Your watercolors are just magical! Mince pie? Is it sweet or savory? There's meat in it, right?

  11. It was so sweet to see you two cuddling up on Saturday - although for a while there it was kind of like "get a room"!! LOL!
