Hello and welcome, here we are at the end of another week.......
I had hoped to post earlier but.......
It's been very warm here and on Wednesday our air con. decided to play up, aargh!! No one available to look at it till next Monday, so in the meantime I have been trying to 'keep cool and carry on', hehe.....
In between other projects I have been crocheting some bunting.
Little triangles of colour, you can see them stacked together in the basket. Some blocked, some waiting to have 'their curls tamed'
It's been a great portable, little project. Pop a ball of wool and a crochet hook in a plastic bag and take it with me. Trips in the car have been measured not by distance, but by how many flags I can crochet. I can hook up two flags as we head into 'big town'....
I found Heather's easy to follow tutorial over at
Today I made myself a little helper, she's taking her job of choosing colours for bunting very seriously.
She was inspired by some sweet little fairies Ruth made from the book Scandinavian Stitches by Kajsa Wikman.
It feels like ages since I made something different, my crafting mojo is returning in fits and starts.
I have been busy, turning the spare bedroom into my sewing room.
The boys have been very good helping move furniture out and furniture in.
My 'space' won't be designer material, but, it will be my space where I can leave everything set up and just walk out and shut the door.
We will reclaim the dining room table,oooh, I am looking forward to that.
Earlier this week I received a parcel from Finland a little Etsy purchase.....
I was very pleased to find it waiting for me in the letter box and check out that gorgeous tape........squirrels and acorns.
Inside a brown paper package and a hand stamped card......
Inside the parcel is the necklace I bought from Delila over at
She lives in a little village in Finland and makes woodland inspired jewellery.
My necklace has a hand made acorn and lovely beads hanging from it.
It will be a piece of jewellery perfect to wear in Autumn and Winter.
I have admired her work and enjoyed reading her blog for quite some time, so......
If you haven't visited Robin and the Sage before, pop over and take a look and be inspired.
So, what have you been inspired by recently?
I would love to know.
I'm hoping we will get some rain over the next couple of days, the garden will certainly enjoy it and I think I will go outside and do a little rain dance. It's very dry and watering is quite a chore in the evenings.
I also hope to finish off the 'moving' process into my sewing room this week and find a home for everything. I will no doubt be making another trip to the op shop as I continue to have a sort out.
Looking outside there are some stormy clouds gathering, so maybe we will get some rain a little sooner than expected.....fingers and toes crossed!! B
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thankyou so much for popping by for a visit.
It's always nice to hear from you.
