the trouble with enjoying crochet (see last post for details :) ) is that is is social and I can do it in a room with a gas fire.
Other things I have to waddle up to my craft space in my bedroom and it takes thought to do that. But I am still enjoying it when I get there and have made a few layouts recently. I loved doing the last one about our amazing holiday to Madeira and I am ready to go and make more.
But firstly, finishing off the stories from our last summer holiday
I wrote out the translation in gold pen. I wondered about adding in the whole poem in Welsh but decided against it. You can read some of it on the wall in the photo. Welsh people who don't live in Wales, like me, often enjoy wallowing in the feeling of hiraeth, but prefer the emotional pang to actually living there! I've noticed that people from Africa who live here have the same sort of emotional responses to "home". (Maybe others but it is those from continental Africa that I have had such conversations with!)
I was helped by using a sketch from Easy Scrapbook Sketches and again keeping it pretty simple
