Last night I fell into big temptation and found myself doing another (slightly tedious row) of my cotton blanket
but boredom set in too quickly...so I folded it up despite enjoying all the zinging colours and got the laptop downstairs ...
and made one of these...
thank you to Alice xox
and then I made this lovey african flower (pattern found on ravelry by Saartje a fellow south african hooky happy chick) which I plan to make a few of and assemble as bunting for my stall at a local vintage market in October, I am pleased witht he result and love the hexagon shape.
It took me a few goes to get it right and a little moaning and a couple of pots of tea but by 1am I had made it and went to bed full of hooky thoughts of african flowers and my childhood. So here it is, what do you think ? It's not perfect and the colours could be better but I am pleased with my first attempt xox
|and then on my way out of the living room I found Alice's cyclops she had made earlier this year in my country living magazine rack , this added an interesting dimension to my childhood dreams ...|
Have a wonderful weekend xox
