I was very flattered to get an award from Jenny
its the sunshine blog award for those blogs that inspire - i know i'm only meant to nominate 12 blogs but i would like to give it to all of those blogs in my sidebar - every one of which i find immensely enjoyable and inspiring - so consider yourself awarded!!! and thank you Jenny very much for thinking of me!
I have been trying to do at least 20 minutes a day of crafting - some days more, some days a bit less!!! I seem to have been in crochet mode for the last week or so, but was pleasantly surprised when i added up the number of squares - nearly 30 now!!!
I've wanted to make a baktus scarf so cast on last night - did about 40 rows and then ripped it back!! I just can't seem to make my edges smooth - they just look lumpy - so started again just now - and guess what- same thing - what am i doing wrong? any help would be gratefully appreciated This yarn is just beautiful - it was my birthday gift from Trashy last year - its from Sarah Hughes at http://www.babylonglegs.co.uk/ who kettle-dyed these beautiful colours in her slow cooker!! So it deserves to be made into something that looks lovely!!
I haven't done any sewing for a while and i think the reason is this
what a mess - before christmas everything got shoved into a corner so we could use this room as an extra bedroom!! I think i need to spend a few hours in here having a sort out. So, purely for inspiration you understand, i thought i would need some more fabric - any excuse !!-
These lovely fabrics come from http://www.gonetoearth.co.uk/ - such a fantastic choice and brilliant delivery- came the next day. I also have been looking through this book which i bought a while ago when i was in Millie Moon
there are some gorgeous skirt and bag patterns that i'm really keen to have a go at!
So that little lot should give me plenty to think about!
I'll leave you with this and hope you all have a great week! In case the writing is too small it says"Bob suddenly realised his wife had fallen off her horse, which was quite a relief to him as an hour before he'd thought he'd gone deaf"!!
I know, but it made me smile!!!
