Two art canvas' which I painted with many, many backgrounds (aka Paulette Insall's wonderful techniques) and added a couple of pics.
Whilst this is very time intensive, I thoroughly enjoyed making the canvases and I just love the "circles" added to the background, what a wonderful idea to brighten up a background.

Gorgeous webbed feet I recently photographed. I got "up close and personal" with the goose.
I have loved photography since I was 18, when I was snapping rock stars using my first SLR, a Zenith. I must admit now though I sometimes get a bit disillusioned when looking at photographs because I am unsure what has been altered with Photoshop/ sharpened/ whatever and what is an unadulterated photo.
I have Photoshop but do not use it, maybe I'm a purist?

Here is a shawl pin I made a while ago from a knitting needle. I have made a few of these but my favourite one (and I can't find it at the moment) is one made from a white needle - I always get comments when I wear it with a scarf.
I also have many bracelets made from needles in the same fashion, and get comments too (only from "crafty" people though who actually know what it's made from.

Some more handspun wool (single ply at the moment). This is some Corriedale which is YEARS old but is still in fantastic condition when I recently spun it. The breeder coated her sheep thus the fleece was beautiful and clean, such a joy to spin. I only need to fill another bobbin and ply it.
