Kind of 'blah'?

I finally got around to block Bridgewater the other weekend, and have been struggling to take pictures of it since then! The colour is so ... blah that it doesn't stand out on anything these days, since we are still in late winter, early spring. But, here it is.... See if you can spot it:)
I tried to get some blue sky and a red barn in the picture, just to get some! colour...

However, colourchoices aside, I am proud of the result. I am still in awe that I can actually understand an english pattern! It is not always easy to read and understand pattern in my own language, so it feels an accomplishment to do it in another:)

The darker side

I find myself being drawn to skulls and black leather:) I have no idea why, but is has been like that for a while. I keep saying I am a goth in hiding:)

I went by a big craft store this weekend, and saw this make-it-yourself kits. One of them was a leather macrame with skulls. It made me smile, and I decided a smile these days justified getting it and making it. So I did.
And it still makes me smile:)

I wonder if that makes me slightly.... weird? And does it really matter?
