Reverb days 9 to 13 follow here...
Day 9: Your favourite book in 2012?Non-craft was Hillary Mantel's Bring up the Bodies [note: you must read Wolf Hall first...]. Craft was probably Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing. I don't love all the patterns or especially rock that style, but the book is a good all round technique bible and thought / inspiration fest.
Day 10: Your greatest risk in 2012?I don't know about this. Do I take risks? Note to self: consider more risk taking in 2013...
Day 11: What was music to your ears?The sound of my biggest small person reading aloud. The sound of my old Singer sewing. That thing sounds wonderful :)
Day 12: What were your most intense emotions?In a list: Happy (at home), Tired (at work), Hot (on days over 30 degrees), Tired again (at home), Happy (at home). 2012 has not been an emotional rollercoaster - my life is good, though not without it's tiredness and frustration. I have control and means and support. So mostly, happy.
Day 13: What was your favourite photo of you?
Away on holiday in Swansea with my favourite people. I look like I am smiling, but I am actually saying hurry the fuck up because my face is burning :) Also, there is white wine :)
