Hi there, Thanks for popping. How are you? Feeling crafty? Me too. It’s the only way forward for this washing machine head today! Have been wanting to play with Leonie’s Fresh Cut Dies for a while. You know, the scribble dies she designed. £20 each. Or £25 for both. Mmmm……Now that’s pretty bloggy special!! They are so fabulous! Only It’s just been so manic here at Clarity, that they’ve been sitting next to my desk for – wait for it…

A Fantasy Doodle on Designer paper.

A Fantasy Doodle on Designer paper.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Came up to the SHACK to blog, and saw a scrap of Waimea Falls paper from yesterday’s paper piecing trick with the Maasai Warrior. Remember? It caught my eye because I saw a landscape…Do you see it too? So I settled down to a little bit of escapism, a little bit of “not here”, and decided to doodle a little fantasy place into the colours… Pick a Paper, any paper. Stare at it, until…

Another new outfit? Really?? But it was such a Bargain !!

Hi there! Hope you are keeping safe and well? Last day in Africa today. Ahhh. I so enjoyed spending a week there with so many friends! The art and the vibe, the doodles and the colours, the banter and the songs – yes. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable little break away from it all. There’s just one little old technique I want to try with my little old Maasai warrior: a bit of paper piecing using the new designer…

Hi there! Or should I say Hujambo! Still on a whirlwind tour of Africa here. Tomorrow, sadly, we have to return home. But we’ve had a fabulous time with SHAC-Shack tours. The tour guide wasn’t bad; her spelling was a bit ropey today. Had all the A’s but not necessarily in the right order! That said, her pronunciation was spot on! Hahaha. So just for the record, Kaa salama is correct for Stay Safe, and you say it Castle-llama. Perfect….

NEVER GIVE UP.

NEVER GIVE UP.

Hi there. Greetings from the Clarity SHAC-Shack! I hope you are safe and well? Day 4 in the house, and all is well. It occurred to me this morning that I am experiencing a shift in my attitude. I can only speak for myself, but today for example, Dave had to run the gauntlet and go shopping for Mum, Dad, and ourselves. Check out the message on his hat… When he finally got home, we had a pretty weird half…

I’m addicted!!!

Hi there, Greetings from the Clarity SHAC-Shack! Thanks for popping in. I hope you are safe and well. This Corona Virus is certainly a game changer. Boy oh boy. Words fail me – and that doesn’t happen often! I’ve stopped obsessing about watching the news – it really serves no purpose. I just get anxious, and despondent. Much better to focus on what I can do to help. Which is keep Clarity going, make sure the team are safe and…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Pretty manic at work today. Rolling with the punches, I think it’s called! As I said yesterday, it’s a challenge! But we have a plan, and we’re trying to get everything set up soonest. In the meantime, let’s just step away from the news, the ever mounting reality that is enveloping us, and switch off, shall we? Call me fickle if you will, but other than avoiding people and washing our hands till the…

Keep Calm and Carry on Crafting!

Hi there. Hope you’re okay. Spoke to a friend on the phone who is self-isolating this morning. No no no. He’s not self-isolating this morning! I spoke to him this morning! The English language is a minefield, innit! He’s a journalist, so he’s has been in contact with people who have been in contact with – and so on. He said we – you and I – are lucky that we have our crafting, that we have our art. He…
