About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Where have I been?

In the past...
I have been to Europe.
I have been to Canada.
I have seen some of Australia.
I have never really had the desire to go to any Asian destination for more than a stop over.
Then, our daughter decided she wanted to live and teach in Southern Asia.
So... after 9 months of her moving there, my husband and I went for 3 weeks to visit her in the Himalayas.
What a fascinating experience!
We are back.
She is still there.  
I am very thankful for modern forms of communication.

There are so many stories to tell but seeing as you are all my craft friends, I will share some crafty photos...

There was folk art on every single building. A newly built apartment block was being built near our daughters place. We loved watching the men perched on the bamboo scaffolding painting all the amazing designs for weeks on end.

 We went to a paper making factory. 

We watched women weaving scarves.

We saw hand woven yak wool textiles.

And of course we made things too. Here are the first of her Christmas decorations. 
(More details about the crocheted stars soon!)

I have also been quilting like a mad woman over the last 10 weeks to make a quilt for our daughter's birthday. It was finished, admittedly, at the very last minute. It was packed up and came in our hand luggage!
I will tell you all about it soon, I promise!
