And how are you lovely people today? Thank you so much for the links to your favourite blogs in my last post! I had so much fun following these links and meeting some great new blogs, my blogroll has definitely expanded and I’m feeling deeply inspired by some of the beautiful things created by these clever ladies, I hope you had a fun look through them too!
I had an exciting moment today when I opened my letterbox… A parcel had arrived all the way from Planet Penny! Remember I told you I won the lovely Penny’s giveaway while I was away? Well… Penny, we just love it. KB says that it is gypsy caravan styles and she wanted me to especially tell you she loves it very much. ***THANK YOU!!!*** Want to see Penny’s gorgeous needle felting?
It arrived in the most beautiful little embroidered bag, which I just love as well, Penny, you are just lovely! Have you visited Penny’s blog? Click here, and you will be guaranteed some colourful goodness…..
Speaking of colourful goodness, I’ve been sloooooooooooooooooooowly working on another spring explosion tea cozy over the last week or so… I thought it might be a gift, but then I thought if someone wanted to buy it I would be able to part with it, but then if no-one wanted it, I’d be more than happy to keep it for myself! I must have cut the flowers off and re-sewed them at least twice each… I had a hard time getting the composition right on this one!
But it turned out beautifully, and I love the happy colours… if you remember, my last two have had red and pink flowers, so it was fun to get out the coloured beads and make a rainbow bouquet!
Ready to see?????
(Of course you are)
Wouldn’t that make a happy cup of tea?
I’m still not sick of making these lovelies! I hope you’re not sick of seeing them!!!
I took it to the fibrecraft garden party at my Mum’s house yesterday, but got soooooo involved in dyeing, I never managed to have a cup of tea from it! We were doing cold water dyeing, and I managed to do four 100gm skeins… these dyes need 48 hours to set, lying in the sunshine, so it’s not instant gratification! I’m BURSTING to see what they’ve ended up like, but have to wait until tomorrow evening… I left them at my Mum’s to stop me playing around with them, willing them to dry faster! I’ll show you the results next time, they’re going to be bright and bold fun!
Another exciting thing happened at this party! I got chatting to the owner of one of my (many) LYS’s and as of February 21st, I’m going to be running my own little crochet class at her shop! Weeeeheeeee! I’m soooooooooooo excited about this new venture! I’ll tell you all about it next time!
OK then, I’m off… I have to go and organise some easy-peesy patterns to start the class with! Thank you for popping in today! I hope you had a fun visit!
Wishing you a fun and beautiful day!
