I would love to have some talent .. in a creative sense.   My only claim to being able to do anything well is in my far distant past when I was a bit of a hockey player.  I have 8 caps for Scottish Schoolgirls but bad knees sadly put an end to playing really competitive hockey when I was in my early 20’s.  I did play around for another decade or so but never to the same level and to be honest, my heart was never really in it.. I just enjoyed the social side and the lovely people I met.

One of my best friends is wonderfully creative.. she can draw, she has an “eye” for design that just whooshes over my head.  She now runs her own upholstery/interior design business and does a bloody good job!.

I did intend taking up pottery .. but the classes I can attend are fully booked for years to come and the others are on when I am in work … so I have given up on that idea.

However.. I have always loved the patchwork crochet blankets (I had one as a kid and loved it!) .. so I have decided to take up crocheting! … now.. friends of mine who read this will, no doubt, be hooting with laughter .. but I need something else in my life.. I am a bit of a workaholic .. I know this .. and I also get bored very easily so I need something .. Im not sure crochetting (does it have 2 t’s ?) will be it but I am going to give it a try.  

I have a project in mind that I would like to complete by next Christmas ..
