a shining web of my own
a radiant shape of hope
a mere moment of bliss
is what I hold in my hand

a craving so raw it twists
a desire so lonely for life
a lament often heard from my mouth
when will my hand be full

a woven stream of life
running from childhood to grown 
is what I stuggle to fit
in this hand I clasp to my heart

a happiness born from the past
a memory too painful to share
a wish for release and end
my hands be together as one

making stuff in 2010!

Last year I spent many hours sipping tea and reading blog after blog of amazing people and their amazing crafty things! sweet, clever, unique and amazing designs.
SO I think this is the right time to try and make something myself (gulp)
I am fairly new to craft, I can knit a little, sew a little (badly) and I guess I can cut and paste and stick pins in things, but thats about the extent of my crafting up until now! Well it's time to move to the next level.....
and what a good place to start

The Long Thread has a wonderful blog post of Top 100 Tutorials of 2009

My pick for first craft project of 2010 is Going Sew Crazy's Clothespin Dolls!  I can even enlist Mr 5 yr old son to help me with these! 

What would you like to start in 2010?
