It’s too hot to sit around making blankets so most of my efforts have been going into making little things.. and one of those things was this lovely wreath. Most of my inspiration came from Attic 24 but I also used some methods from other sites like Ravelry for the wrapping of the yarn around the hoop and for some of the flowers.There’s even a pansy on there!
I cheated with some paper flowers that I got from a fab new craft shop in the next village up called Trinkets in Ur Trunk. I bought some lovely alpaca yarns in there along with some gorgeous buttons. I love the mixed media in this and the way it made me think about placement and colour. It’s proved to be a success with my neighbours who “oooohed and arrgghed” when I placed it outside to take some shots of it.
Talking of which its been very much an outside weekend.. days in the sunshine are blissful, sun shinning on your shoulders like warm dripping honey… ahh I love it.
Look what I found in the garden though! Yes its a hatched sea gull egg.. there are lots of them nesting around us at the moment.By all means you can think how wonderful nature is.. until you see the sight of their droppings on your cars!! hmmm.. sweet all the same to find it.
In our house its not officially summer till you’ve had your first BBQ … so we did our first one today and very odd it was too without Alex who would chose to BBQ everyday… and odd not to have him with me dancing around the lounge last night to the Eurovision Song Contest!.
In the meantime a little photo of Richard fantasising about being the last boy scout with a sausage!
And yes.. my toms, chilli’s and coriander are in the green house ready to grow up and be used for a few more summer meals to come.
Ohhhh and some further news……….. My Alex has been given the go ahead for discharge. All being well he should be back home with is for the 11th of June.
I wonder………………… do you think that could be because I made him that crocheted healing doll???
I wish you all and your family a happy, healthy and sun filled smiley summer xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
