Happy Sunday morning to you!!!
Or maybe it’s Saturday night where you are… I love reading comments from people who are reading my Sunday morning posts on a Saturday night before going to bed, I’ve said before how much I love making new friends all over the world and how connected it makes me feel to the rest of the planet! I love watching your Summer turn to Autumn, the lovely orange and red colours, as I see Winter becoming Spring here…
Now, I must APOLOGISE!!!!! In my last post on Friday, I uploaded a few photos and suddenly the post just posted itself before I had even finished what I was doing! Oh the horror I felt! Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I know all of my darling e-mail subscribers got a strange post from me with about 5 pictures and no words, such a terrible thing!!! WordPress seemed to be in the process of making some “FABULOUS” changes behind the scenes that day and my laptop was trying to process that, and bang. Half finished post posted as I’m trying to get ready for work! If you did just get pictures, click here and a new window will pop up with the entire post, including pictures of the finished cushion!
Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments about my giant cushion, and in fact, all of your lovely comments about everything, it totally makes my day. Mornings are my special “obligation free” time, so I like to get up super early and hook, knit, drink coffee and most especially, check my blog and spend some time visiting my favourite blogs and enjoying your creations too, so it brightens my morning so much to read such lovely things.
I remember when I was young, my awesome Mum said that pink and red do not go together. They’re too close a colour match. Kind of like black and navy…. She may have changed her perspective on this by now, I’m not sure, I haven’t asked! I totally agree about the black and navy, it reminds me of my old school uniform…. but as far as pink and red… well, that’s a rule I love to break!
Beautiful heavenly pink…. these lilies are my absolute favourite flower…
I wonder why KB is so allergic to my favourite ever flower that if she enters a room with them in it, her eyes start to itch, her throat gets all scratchy and her sinuses play up immediately?
Do you remember how I made a few sets of bunting and put them in the window of my Mum’s flower shop? Well, I took them down a few weeks ago and gifted all three sets (they were so well received, I was quite surprised at how partial to bunting people are!) and since then, two people have come in and asked my Mum where the crochet has gone! It seems people love a bit of colourful hooky happiness to brighten their mornings on their way to work….
So I’m making some more sets to put in for my “eat your heart out Grandma” cushion exhibition… the cushions are most definitely NFS but people can buy the bunting and my badges….
Are any of you coming to this??? (tee hee)
However, I really like this pink and red bunting… I don’t know if I want to sell it! It’s hanging on the back of my front door right now and I quite like it there… although it’s possibly a bit bright for my kitchen, so maybe I’ll be over it in a couple of days….
Don’t you think it brightens this scuzzy old door up beautifully? This is the door to under the house, not my front door…. although, KB was wondering whether it’s actually nicer than our front door….
Someone (I’m sorry I can’t remember who!!!) said how she liked that I take my crochet on location for its photoshoots! I liked that comment,
because I do too… it’s so fun! I like making a big fuss of my creations….
Do you know… I work in a shop which sells lots of fun things like clothes, body piercing jewellery, jewellery, cool imported things from all over the world, and it’s quite popular with the teenagers who like to stretch their ears… do you know what that is? Let me know if not and I’ll tell you next time! I worked my 8 hour Saturday shift yesterday and by the end of it I was just shocked at the fashion the teenagers are wearing! It’s pure 1980’s reebok, raybans, stonewash, mullety nightmare inducing stuff! I was telling KB about it last night and she said to me: “Oh wow Babe, like you’re the first person of an older generation to be shocked at what teenagers are wearing….”
Oh dear, good point… it seems I’ve made the final transition into adulthood….
OK lovelies, I’m signing off now, I’ve GOT to go and do some study!
Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of love to all of you wonderful people,
