What do you do with some brightly coloured embroidery thread and a teeny, weeny crochet hook?
You guessed it ladies......
You make teeny, weeny bunting flags.
The bunting love continues here in the Sweet Birdy Love household.
Two storage containers full of beautiful rainbow, candy coloured thread to choose from........♥♥
These little cuties are just as addictive to make, but a teensie tiny bit fiddly as you can imagine.
I find good daylight is necessary in which to make these and I do have to watch what I am doing....
If you would like a tutorial for these little cuties head over and visit Lucy at Attic 24.
Her January 24th blog post will show you how to make them.
Can't do the linky dink thing directly to that post yet!1
A new addition to the kitchen bench today.....
For several years this wonderful tin has been residing out of sight on the top shelf of my walk in pantry........
I looked at it the other day and thought
"why are you not sitting on the bench where I can enjoy you?"
This tin was used as storage for flour when I was a kidlet.
I love the colours, they are some of my favourite combos, so vintage....
It was made in Australia by Willow...... a very rare thing these days, which makes it extra special.
What will I use it for?
Eye candy and that's about it.
It's 10 inches high so would take a lot of buttons to fill it, but then again......
Colour is featuring big time this week...
The poor old Aggies were looking sad and sorry, so on Tuesday evening I chopped their heads off.
3 barrow loads were carted to the rubbish heap, but some made their way inside as they do every Summer.
Here they will stay until they dry off and become a lovely, soft parchment colour.
Cherry red and bright green...♥♥
A surprise pressie the boys bought me back from their weekend away at the Newstead Folk Festival recently.
Hubby saw a local fellow in the main street, he had two pairs of pliers and was bending old fencing wire into shape.
Asked if he could make a chook, no problems........
I love it and am more than happy to have any amount of these girls foraging in my garden.
So to all the crafty/handy blokes out there......well done.
Speaking of handy blokes, No. 1 has asked me 'pretty please' would I post a link to a video he made recently.
He wrote this song last year and has been struggling to find the right title for it.
He would appreciate it if you would have a listen and any suggestions for a title would be great....
I am earning big Brownie points here girls, so if you can help me out in return he'll be happy to do a few extra jobs around the place
That's what I call fair trade.
There are more videos from this session on Youtube, just google Richard Perso Main Street Sessions.....
The week has ended on a cooler note after recent heat and the air con is back in action.
A big cheer to all of you clever computer gals who sorted out my wandering ways and got me back on track with the old Blogger interface. Nice to back in my comfort zone, but new skills need to be learnt.
I have spent some time sorting out my new sewing room and it's slow going but I am making progress.
I am so happy to have my own space and since moving everything off the table and reclaiming it I feel so much happier.........like I lost 10kgs overnight...... now that would make you happy wouldn't it?
Anyhoo, I shall move in there eventually and get back to the sewing thing but for now there's more bunting to be made.
Thankyou all for popping over for a visit, I would love to invite you all over to sit around my tidy table and have a cuppa and some scrummy cake, but for now I shall just send each and everyone of you some blue sky and sunshine wishes for a lovely weekend.
Take care and thanks for visiting.........Claire X
