I found this beautiful bowl at the op shop today. It's made a lovely addition to my little collection of Russian folk art bits. I'm not sure if it is in the 'Khokhloma' style (any thoughts anyone?) but it is just so lovely. I like that it is not pristine either - it looks like it has been used and loved.
Speaking of love, I have extended my yarn love to encompass mostly just green yarn and a particular shade of green at that. This is 'Rowan felted tweed aran' and I just love, love, love this tweedy green shade. I am looking at Fairisle and Aran knitting patterns at the moment - in other words punching well above my weight, skills-wise.
I am looking mainly for laughs on TV at the moment and I think I am finally into The Trip. Are you watching it? It didn't grab me at first and it still has moments of 'patchiness' for me, when I'm just not sure where it's going, but I do love their (apparent) ad-libbing.
We saw The Iron Lady on New Years Eve. Have you seen it? I knew next to nothing about Margaret Thatcher and this film gave me an interesting perspective on her. I couldn't say I warmed to her necessarily, but the complexities of her character were certainly well drawn out.
