I'LL BE WITH YOU IN APPLE BLOSSOM TIME....
It's the same old, same old this week - I told you I was doing a lot of bunting!
It doesn't look much different from what I showed you seven days ago - except the name is different and I've knitted another top-down cardi that needs some buttons.
I went to Miss Lemon's, my local yarn store and fell in love with these ribbons and lace. The colours were directly inspired by the gorgeous work that Diana (VelvetMoth Studio) showed on her desk last week. Apple greens and pinks work so well, don't they? I didn't use that hare ribbon on the bunting but thought that a metre of it wouldn't break the bank :-)
Those little ivory blush roses were another purchase too...cough...well, it would have been rude not to.....
I also bought two of these beautiful little butterflies as the bunting is intended for a real nature loving lady. Lovely colours, huh?
There you go - the finished article :-) I enjoyed making this a lot, the colours were just so fresh.
And I tidied (sort of) my box of ribbony goodness!
Last week, I'd arranged for a few of the local deskers to come for coffee and a chat at Julia's. Guess whose work this is?
The aforementioned Diana, that's who. She brought this box of beautiful goodies, we all enjoyed a furtle. And her work is as gorgeous in real life as it is on her blog....gorgeouser even!
Some teabag embroidery, so intricate...I was in awe.
And Julia's embroidery is coming along beautifully too!!
Have a great week everyone, I'll try not to have bunting on show next time!!
