Changing direction without a compass...

No, not the title of a new book, but the state I'm in at the mo'.
OK... I've been thinking for a while that, whilst I adore reading and writing (not arithmetic, though), book reviews are not the only thing this blog should be good for.
In the past year or so I've been bitten (nay, infested) by the craft bug.  I've taken up crochet again after a huge hiatus, and, thanks to the excellent I am exploring new techniques and materials.  Thrift, recycling and eco-friendly are all making sense, now.  This in turn has led to my trawling the charity shops for yarn, beads, buttons and fabric.  Ah, fabric... my sewing machine has finally seen the light of day!  Abakhan has become one of my favourite shops (I love their 'remainder' bins), and my typing chair is gradually being pushed forward by all the 'stuff' I've been squirrelling away.  Is that my age?  Ha har - maybe I'm now a material girl.
So, chaps and chapesses, watch this space for more of this metamorphosis.
