I’m off to be a Master!

New horizons await.
Completely new horizons.
It’s both exciting and daunting.

Therefore I’ve decided it’s perfect timing to take a break from the blog.

I’ve loved writing, for over 7 years now. I’ve loved the people I’ve met through this blog who I wouldn’t have met otherwise (you know who you are). I’m so glad for the experiences it’s brought into my life.

I’m not sure if I’ll be back. But you’ll know it if/when I am.

Happy making.

Once more with the documentary watching … oh I know, but cold weather does induce such indulgences.

This thing of beauty caught my eye.

It’s thought to be the crown of the wife of Richard II, and the only known English crown surviving from the medieval period. Now it’s called the ‘Crown of Princess Blanche‘.

So delicate and gorgeous.

Yes … I’d like one … thank you.
