WHO PUT THE COLOURS IN THE RAINBOW?
Hello everyone - another week has shot by and here we are at Whizzday again! There's been more plotting and planning about the Crop, so it's exciting times, especially when you realise that it's less than four weeks now - woohoo!
You find me mid-make with some more glasses cases.
The scrap squares turned out to fit the template very well - you can see a finished one in the background. It's just as well, because I've got a few more to make, along with the little popper purses - I popped into the harbour cafe and there's only two of each left, they've nearly sold out! I'm very pleased about that as it's all for a good cause. There may be a bit more to show you next week!
I've also just finished another scrap yarn crochet blanket:
It still amazes me that you can turn all that yarn into something useful with just a bent stick!! I've got two now, ready to be taken to the local hospice. It makes me happy to see the rainbow colours - I get great pleasure out of making these, it's quite meditative, zipping back and fore along the rows. See, us crafters have been doing Mindfulness for years, way before it became a buzzword!
More colour in the garden to share:
These alliums have taken over a week to open, it's been really interesting watching the progress. The bees have been taking an interest but not as much as this:
The Perennial Wallflower. This has flowered for three weeks solid now and when it's done, I'll cut it hard back and it'll probably repeat the process..what value for money this was - I should run a Spot the Bee competition for this picture cos there is one in there, having a good furtle around!!
Hope you have a lovely and productive week - I've got a band contest in Cardiff on Saturday, fingers crossed!
