So where on earth did all that time go? Happy new 2013 to one and all!
Went off up the hill this morning to take a photy of the bleak owing to the dull light and foggy conditions. Nothing too exciting to see however but found a wee bit of colour and an unexpected primrose. In fact it looks like there will be a super bank of them later on. Cheers!
After treating myself to a nice book (100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet) I found it difficult to stop. But I also had to get a wee encyclopedia of crochet since I’m still a novice with the single needle. I have tied the primroses into a wee posy that sits neatly inside a new Ikea shot glass, the shamrock and thistle are single testers and I did already have some appropriate colours handy. Overall pretty pleased with making flowers and can sit watching telly whilst getting on with a few leaves.
The hinged frame is covered with a set of floral stamps, I really should give it an other coat or two of varnish but one will do for now I think. Patience is not my strong suit when it comes to watching paint dry!
Here are the latest six goodies planetaye has put onto the wee Folksy shop. Pretty peg faeries all got up in their party wings and lotsa jolly pens to practise the old snail-mail thank-you letters, hope you like…
