Rose

We were clearing out some dead flowers today from my Nan’s place and I spotted a couple of roses.

They looked pretty all dried so I brought them home to photograph.

I have taken more pics on my camera, but this is just a phone one. Think it looks pretty anyway tho :)

Modcloth

Just gotta say, and this is just a bit of a random post, but loving Modcloth. It’s a website that I only discovered recently, but they have some lovely dresses. Perfect for inspiration and ideas.

I want this dress:

and I love this one.

I have already purchased some dusty pink chiffon to make a dress inspired by this. I have also bought some navy chiffon for another dress I have planned.

On top of that I bought some turquoise jersey as I have plans to make another hope wrap dress and then print it with a black bird print.

Oh so many plans as always.

I really ought to finish off some of the projects that I have started, there is a black lace dress still half done in my wardrobe among other things and a kimono that I have just started… I should get off the internet and get making…

Little owls

You can find this pattern on Ravelry, free of course!!

Little owls

I made these little owls for the Little Havens project.

They are crochet and quite a quick and easy make, but once they have their eyes and beaks on, are rather cute :)

Every year I attempt growing some of my own and this year is of course no different, except I was trying to go for things that slugs and catterpillers don’t like eating so much.

So here’s what I picked out of the garden today, lots of potatoes and some onions. :) No doubt there will be more to come, as well as the usual random shape veg pic!!

Another crochet item for the little havens project, you will see a few more items over the next few days as this is the last week to get them all done!

Pancake mixer

I love pancakes, I mean love them, so when I saw this I had to have it. It is a batter mixing pot, but perfect for pancake batter, nice and big with a handle and everything!! And pretty of course.

Love it

I saw a tutorial for a little mini book, made with no gluing or sewing, so had to give it a go!

Looks like a great idea for a mini photo book as a gift for someone and they look really cute with a few of them, look here:

Thailand

If you were wondering why I’ve been quiet for a bit, it’s because I was away in Thailand on holiday and now I’m back.

I won’t bore you with loads of holiday pics or anything, but here is a mandatory shot of me with an elephant!!

Had to be done ;)

Leaf and acorn garland

Another piece for the Little Haven’s charity yarn bomb. I decided to make a forest garland.

More info here: http://www.deramores.com/blog/the-craft-club-yarn-bombers-need-your-help/

Why not join in, there is still time even if you can crochet something small on the woodland theme.

What to make next? I might make a big toadstool or an owl.
