Amazing projects that inspire!

I decided today to have a nosey through some of my favourite blogs to get some craft inspiration, ready for Christmas, and the New Year.

This was an entry for a photography competition, which was posted on this lovely blog called "MeMe Rose". I would love to be a part one day of a project of this size!

Helsinki Cathedral is high on my list of places to visit, because of how beautiful this architecture truely is.

Ah Finland. How I love thee <3

Visit Helsinki

This lovely lady has only been crochetting for 18 months, and has completed a wide array of projects for her and her little family. The colour always draws my eyes to her posts <3

I saw this entry while noseying through my latest blog posts lists on the dashboard for Blogger. And thought "I would love to make something like these!". What an idea though? Have a read of these 30 Days for $30 posts!

I love love love Lucy's blog and her patterns. She recently bought one of my little funky phone covers.

And I cannot wait to know when it arrives :D With someone with so much talent buying from me, makes me have faith in craft!

I neeeeed to make one of these though for my ever expanding hook collection!

How cute is that! You can make it into a little tree topper, a pin cushion, a decoration. The possibilities are endless!!

I have many different yarns that MUST be used just for this project <3


It's blogs like these that give me hope that crafting will be carried through the generations. Whether it was our mothers, fathers, grandparents, or even great grandparents that taught us; I have hope that our children, and further into the future, these crafts will always be known!

Secret Parcel

Today, I recieved a parcel a lovely lady on Ravelry got me to look out for. I carefully opened this little parcel.

Hope things get better for you really soon.
Hope you enjoy these

I wonder what it is!

New things in my life

I had been thinking for a while on buying some new items for our flat.

So last week we bought a new craft storage item!

How gorgeus is that? And a bargain. £15 ladies and gents. I kid you not. From our local recycle reuse centre! We've bought waaaaayyy too much from there.

Then I bought for the kitchen;

Can't quite see it?

My new drainer! From a shop on EBay. I think it was £6 in total. Not bad huh?

I'm going to go to my local Dunelm Mill today to get some more fabric boxes to hide things in :)

Drippy drip drip

Hello hello lovelies.

I had a rather yummy delivery of 5 balls of yarn yesterday. But I am expecting more over the next few days!

I'm going to be sorting my yarn stash out. As I lost my job, I need to make money somehow!

So, I am sat on the floor in the living room thinking what I want to use my stash for, if I want to keep balls of it, if I want to get shot of it. Not sure what to do..

Look at all those craft books and magazines! So much inspiration, so much time lol!

I leave you with a photo of the sunlight towards Kettering. How stormy huh?

More time to craft

Hello hello bloggers.

I'm awake at this rather modest hour because I lost my job today. I wasn't as far as was needed in the 3 months I've been there; so was given the goodbye and god bless..

So, more time to craft while I hunt desperately for another job!

Here is what is helping me feel better. My amazing pink polka dot socks, and I'm going to do some crochet as well. Just to take my mind off the stress!

Hopefully one of my blog entries will contain pretties of the craft nature, or happy news. Sorry about all these negative blog postings of late, need to clear my head cx
