My Week in Pictures

by Karen J Mossman

Today is chill out Sunday. A day to sit back and relax, which is what I did. This made me think of the all the things I’d achieved last week.

 

My Week-1

Besides writing, I love crafts and the top row of the picture shows containers made from painted recycled baked beans tins. With a little decoration and a cross stitch picture, they look totally different.

I also played around with pom-poms and made this cool little owl.

Next to that are flowers in a pot made from crocheted daisies.

The pink knitting is actually a multicoloured wool where it changes colour the more you knit. I saw this cute baby hat that seemed quick and easy to make, so started it last night.

I walk my dogs every day and if we go to the park we come across this beautiful palamino horse. Last year, I was calling one of the dogs back, when the horse came running over. Now I make sure I have a carrot with me, so I can give him a shout and and stroke him, too.

Two of my Electric Eclectic books came out in paperback. Distant Time and Down by the River. I’m really looking forward to receiving my copies.

And lastly I have a new Electric Eclectic book coming out. The Magic of Stories has been republished under the EE banner, and is full of short stories and poetry with a new cover and even more content. It will have a slightly different launch to that we have done before. I look forward to sharing it with you soon.

What about your week? What have you achieved or done, we’d love to know

Just Our Imagination

I was reading through other WordPress sites, as you do, and came across this interesting article about riding a bike.

It took me back to being a child when when played on the streets for hours with them. My brother and I used to pretend they were horses and we had an army of men. We’d ride down the centre of the road beckoning behind us with our hands, shouting “Come on, men!” Ten thousand men followed us!

What sticks in my mind the most is how I think back tand there really was ten thousand men there and we were on horseback, not our bikes. There really is nothing like a child’s imagination.
