About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and if you are very unlucky I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Thursday Adventure ~ A familiar trip to Knighshayes

I think I have been here too often.  There was no guide in the Billiard room and three lovely people were commenting on a framed poem and asked if I knew.  I then spent ten minutes talking about how the poem is based on the seven/eight deadly sins in the Bible.  The deadly Sins being


  • Gluttony
  • Lust and Fornication
  • Greed
  • Sorrow/Dispair
  • Pride
  • Wrapth
  • Vanity/Vainglory
  • Sloth
In the Billiard room the sins are also depicted in stone carvings on stones that appear to support the ceiling.  My photos are terrible but they are beautifully carved.  I've attempted to photograph the poem too.  



I had thought my Thursday Adventures were coming to an end and I would return to Lipreading in the new year, however they are not returning to the old room yet.  The "decorating" seems to be taking an awful long time.  They have been working on it since July!  So it appears that my adventures may continue for a while yet!

Here are today's photos.
