Purple Produce Bag

I haven't been doing any crochet for ages, but it occurred to me to make this produce bag as I don't have any. I'm thinking of trying to walk down to the local fruit and veg to get some decent exercise and to reduce the amount of plastic we use. At the moment we're getting our fruit and veg from Colesonline and they come in plastic, even after the plastic bag ban which comes in July they will still put the fruit and veg in plastic apparently. So I needed a produce bag! Hey presto!

A Shiny Red Bear

Its been over a year since I posted on this blog, so I thought I'd let you know what I've been up to. I've been playing World of Warcraft, I recently got this shiny red bear appearance for my druid. I am now maining her as a tank and its lots of fun! Also, last year I got the Loremaster achievement and title, I had most of it done, it only took a solid weekend to finish it off. Sometimes an urge to crochet comes over me, but I don't really have anyone to crochet for so I dismiss it and get back to WOW!
Uma is now a Shiny Red Bear!

Colourful Flower Garland

I had an idle holiday last week in the ward, I made this simple flower garland to leave behind. I used 8 ply acrylic and a 4mm hook, it took me a couple of hours when I was bored with nothing better to do. It now hangs in the art room at my private holiday resort :P.

Sparkly Scarf

I just finished making this long scarf out of some sparkly yarn I found in the art room at the place I've been for the last week. Its really nice, warm and thick yarn with a thread of silver woven through, spaced out with sparkly sequins. I just made it for something to do, its the biggest project I've done since my pink bunny rugg early last year. I'm going to donate it to the charity bin, hopefully someone will get some use out of it. Goodness knows I don't need more scarves and such for my own craft box, I already have several that I will never use myself. I used 4 balls of 50g and a 4mm hook.

Blood Rose Solar System

My friend Kate from highschool posted this mandala today, she has so many lovely hand-made cards on her page. I've had a few wonky days the last few days, but seeing this mandala helps reassure me all is right with the world.

Angel's Dress 20th November 1995

Days,
As subtle as the imprint left by an angel's dress.
As soft and sweet as a virgin's caress.
Hints and echoes of light filter through\
Fragile and precious trees of leaves.
Leave behind the world of corners and straight walls.
Fall willingly,
Blissfully,
Into a strange green, glittery, gittery, calming, peaceful waterworld.
Away from the race.
Setting a better pace.
Keeping my own space for a change.

Ship of Sleep 15th June 1996

Ship of sleep
Drift and steal
me away from the
harsh and bleak.
Take me to a land of sleep and dreams.
Deep hue of velvet blue.
Fathomless abyss of watery fantasies and emotional energies.
The navy cool whispers imagined caresses,
as soft as water,
as soft as his words in song.
Ship of sleep,
Take me to the navy cool deep
Where I belong.
Where I can do no wrong
   but only drift, drift, drift ...

What I Do 21st February 1995

I wait.
I wait to fall alseep.
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I drink coffee,
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I eat alone,
I drink coffee,
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I think,
I eat alone,
I drink coffee,
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I feed the cats (to stop them howling),
I think,
I eat alone,
I drink coffee,
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I drive (without getting anywhere),
I feed the cats (to stop them howling),
I think,
I eat alone,
I drink coffee,
I shape twenty young minds,
I wonder what I'm doing tomorrow,
I drive,
I check the letterbox and
I wait to fall asleep.
I drive
I feed
I think
I eat
I drink
I shape
I wonder
I drive
I check and
I wait ...

Time 28th March 1995

Wait ...
Wait for time.
Words are mime
and soundless.
Wipe, wipe, wipe
Wipe away the rain.
Agonise my pain.
Drawing it out a little longer.
I try to be stronger.
Time.
All mine to pass.
How long will it last?
Practice, practice, practice.
Practice that phrase a million more times. Hey.
I've got plenty of time for that.
I'll have it down pat
In no time.
Because no time
is the time when you're gone
too long
Time.
What's the time, Mr Wolf?
Its 9 o'clock, 16 minutes and 37 seconds.
Just infinity to go.
Wipe, wipe, wipe.
Wipe your face.
Here's a tissue.
Get dressed, sit up straight, listen to me!
Listen to me!!!
Can you hear me a million miles away?
Practice, practice, practice.
Practice what I'll say
On the day you finally get here, In my car as the wipers
Wipe, wipe, wipe, wipe, wipe the screen so I'm not as blind.
Just passing the time,
Just passing the time,
Just passing the time.

Water 8th March 1995

Soothe.
Soft and smooth.
Rhythmic rain
send me to sleep.
Penetrate the silence
too loud and deep.
Go.
Fast and slow.
Make the mould grow.
Grace.
Drown in your embrace.
Die.
Tears to cry.
Flood the roads,
Close the school.
Take him away,
Make me a fool.
