Here we are at the end of another week and for the early part it was beautiful blue skies & fluffy white clouds all day! It was so warm & summery that I even (shock horror...) dug out an old pair of shorts & birkies!
|Inspirational blue & pink!|
I have been-a-making but also having fun with a spot of retail therapy. As nothing is quite ready to post yet as a new project, I thought you might like to share in my therapy and take a little peek into what I have been out gathering in readiness....
First up is this total impulse buy which just needs a little spot of up-cycling to make it perfect for my craft space. I just fell in love with the colour!
Doing it up is really an outside job and unfortunately it's raining today, but it is a long weekend - hooray! - so if the weather cheers up I should be able to make a start on it...exciting :-)
Next up is another blue tone & very random purchase - even Teddie was curious! I have no answer as to why I got it (and Easter is long gone so I can't even pretend its because of that). I just liked the pattern and colour..I guess it simply appealed to me...
|Not for Teddies!|
That purchase was quickly followed by this pretty vintage egg coddler. Again it happens to be in blue-ish tones and again I bought it for no apparent reason other than I like the 'Woodland' pattern...
|I may try actually using this one morning for breakfast...|
|Even the back of it is pretty!|
Now, here's a bit of a clue as to what I might be making something with soon (and yes, it's blue again!)
|Thought it was yarn? Look again...|
|(it's wool fibre for felting)|
On a trip into Bath I also bought some new, thinner 'Doll Needles' for tatting (another little clue to what I have been playing with this week but more on that another time). I was quite pleased to find this pack because the one's I have are quite thick and 'real' tatting needles aren't easy to find...
And finally, for my irresistible, utterly gorgeous, dash of pink (with a touch of lime green)...
|Squiggly Squeeeeals of delight!|
Anyway, that's me set up for the bank hol along with a spot of gardening, friends, family & Pimms! And I really hope all this rain makes my newly planted runner beans grow :-)
|Grow beans grow!|
Enjoy your bank holiday whatever you do :-)
