This week I have been crochet mad!
This is my new favourite cup. Would you like to join me for coffee and a cupcake?
Only joking, how about one of these?
They go very well with crochet and I have a sweet tooth....
I have been swishing around in my favourite poncho. At home I live in ponchos. One day I will make one......
I have done a spot of thrifting. I'm very happy to have found these. My Mum used to have them in her cupboards. It's amazing how a pattern can bring back memories. I just like seeing them on my shelves, and I think I might start a little collection.
I have been dipping into this basket a lot lately.
and found myself making something very bright and colourful, more than normal!
I have been in my craft room using my sewing machine, Miss.Trissie. She used to belong to my grandma. She is working really well, considering she must be almost a hundred years old! I have been finishing lots of cushions and this really feels good.
I have enjoyed draping cushions around the house and taking lots of pictures.
I love this cushion, for me it represents everything I want my little red suitcase shop to be about, colourful, retro, fun and modern.......!
It's ready to travel and I just might be able to let it go!
Of course I will have to make another straight away.......
.....Home is tidy, my teen had a week off ill, so no school wrangles.
I have been managing to clear some of my forever piles. You know the ones, hand washing, mending, tidying the clutter in my craft room, again!
There are still some I would like to get to, but I need to do more clearing first, but I do feel as though my word for the year CLEAR, is having an effect.
It's been good to craft and finish things. I have given my etsy shop a little tidy and update. I have been doing some homework to do with postage and packaging and dreaming off making some new labels and postcards.
So perhaps the spring energy is beginning to move and now I will be spending the next few days catching up with you all.
I hope things are good with you,
