Far to hot for craft!!!!!
- Posted using BlogPress from my iPad 2
Look at this thing growing, loving the colours, this blanket is being modeled by Muttley who was minding his own business sleeping next to my yarn basket when he had a blanket placed on him.
Also took the picture below at Great Comp gardens about 2 weeks ago, its crying out to have something done with it, but I've already silk shaded an iris the same colour, so I was thinking of doing some canvas work but on a fine canvas using cotton thread rather then wool. I really love the way you can blend the colours with a stranded cotton. I have been looking at some canvas at Willow fabrics and hope to order soon.( sorry about picture but computer is downloading a billion updates and running so slowly I gave up, took a photo of the photo and I'm using the phone to blog this!!!!!) Will try again later in the week .
The thing with embroidery is that you can't get on with it while the kids are around, I find it to involved and you can't keep an eye on little people at the same time, same with knitting. But there are times during the day when they are busy playing and they don't need me standing over them. I am not good at sitting and doing nothing so I had to think of something to do, and I came up with crochet, easy to pick up and put down, you don't have to finish a row (and its very easy to take out if you go wrong ) and with a little help and inspiration from Attic 24 colourful ripple blanket is well under way!!!!!
Also collecting flower pictures at the moment, as I have a fancy to do some more silk shading.
I have a lovely kit from U Handbag too, to make a purse, just because I wanted to know how they were made!!!!!
