Yet again, time has sped away from me, and I have no idea where it's gone, how it managed to sneak past me or what I've even accomplished during this mini whirlwind!
Unfortunately my poor little blog has been put aside as the Pheeples become more and more insistent that their army needs to grow.
I love felting to bits, but it does take up a lot of my world.
So when I read this blog post this morning by kelly anne, I felt time suddenly slow down a bit,
and it felt amazing!
I went for a walk, just a little one to the shops and back, popped into the post office, watched people passing me on the pavement, and then I popped into the little charity shop.
There's something about a charity shop.
Because I never go in there with an aim of buying anything in particular, time slows down even more, and I end up just dawdling around the shelves, making sure I get a look at everything.
And there's so many wonderful things to see!
There was a lovely basket of balls of wool that I had to force myself not to rummage through
"for myself" I had to tell myself.
This was going to be about me, and nothing to do with my work - even though we are pretty much the same, there is a bit of me that isn't felt  ;)
There was a box of old records, some lovely little ornaments I was nearly tempted by. There was a stunning, tiny little wooden horse and a little ceramic lama.
I had a go at an old looking music box, but it didn't work sadly.
And then I found the book shelf.
I never get time to read any more.
I can't felt and read at the same time.
I can felt and watch films at the same time though, so I fill my head with stories from my Poirot DVD collection and anime.
Today however, I decided to treat myself to a little book.
maybe not a story, but something I can dip into every now and again when the Pheeples give me a lunch break.
...Ok, so maybe I treated myself to 2 books!
This one I couldn't resist!
As soon as I started scanning the page, I knew it'd make me giggle.
and this one just sparked my curiosity.
It's a whole book of Q&As
for example:
"Q. Does cold iron contain heat?
A. Yes: every thing contains heat; but, when a thing feels cold, its heat is latent."
(pg 99)
Learn something new every day? - I intend to!
and it has that luuurvely old book smell!
I feel quite ready to hop back into my world now
But I do advise it, try and slow down time if you can, even if it's only for a little while.
now back to the Pheeples, I can hear them moaning about something or other.
They've probably run out of cake!

And The Winner Is....

What a response to my giveaway over these last 2 weeks!
You guys are so awesome!

And so many lovely designs!
I wish I could turn them all into little felted Pheeple!

I had a little help from one of the Pheeples for the name draw,
and mum was nominated to close her eyes and pick a name from the box!
Thanks mum!

There's something in the air at the moment I think.
Something really creative and motivating.
It's probably related to the Olympics somehow,
but I love it!

I've found myself reading more blogs recently and listening to music I'd never heard of before.
I saw this on one blog and fell in love

Me and Lewis went for a walk last night with Hamish
and I felt even more inspired!

Do you ever find that you get so wrapped up in your little world and all of the little things in your world that are important,
that just sometimes
you really forget how lucky you are?

I've completely forgotten that I live in such a beautiful place!

*promise to self - take photos more and love my little world!*

So, is anyone else enjoying the Olympics?
I can't believe how in to it I am,
I really didn't see this coming, but now I'm itching to get myself down to London!


C'mon GB!
