Looking better

Ahh, I've undone & redone and now it's flat.
Definitely better!

You may have already figured this out already, but...

Yes, the shopping online continues!
Check out this gorgeous ceramic bunny necklace I bought for myself!
I purchased it via mememe & I adore it!

My Creative Space

I've started scraping back the old table that I will eventually cover with the old postal stamps.
Can you see the reflection in the scraper.... um, it's from the tv, it's Bold & the Beautiful!

Have you joined in with Kootoyoo's Creative Space yet?

Shelving an idea!

I've been sitting and staring at this messy bookshelf.
But then I got an idea....
Now I feel a little bit more inspired!
Or have I started nesting already?!?

This is what I have done so far, but I'm not happy with it, it has a wave in it & I don't like the second and third rows! 
So I'll undo & redo - that's the story of my life!

Yep, I've started another one!

I've been sitting here at home feeling sorry for myself - mix a bad headcold with 22wks pregnancy throw in 2 days of bedrest and yep, I got really, really bored.
So, I decided to start an easy, pick up, put down blanket.
What do you think? Does it look ok so far? I'm not using a pattern, if it looks a little wonky, the rows get undone & redone (again & again!).

Taa daaaaaa!

Look what I made!
Like it? I think it's cute, it was so easy to make - I'll post the instructions soon.

A winter's day

It's winter, but it's almost over. Yay!
So, here is a piccie of some flowers that I treated myself (from the supermarket!). 
What are you doing this weekend?  I'll be having a posh afternoon tea at The Windsor then we'll pop on over & adore Captain Cooks cottage.  What will you be doing?
Whatever it is that you shall entertain yourself with.. have an awesome weekend!

My Creative Space

I'm getting sticky fingers this week playing with PVA glue and string!
With the cold winter weather I wanted to get my hands into something gooey! My first thought was papier mache but that is too messy! So I decided to make a string bowl using just glue and winding string around and around until voila a bowl! So, I'm getting stringy!

Have you joined in with Kootoyoo's Creative Space?

Actually, thinking of string - it brings a song to mind from The Goodies..."String, string, string string, everybody loves string!"

I'm really trying here...

Getting back into the crafty swing of things is taking a lot longer than I had anticipated.
Who'd thought that I'm not up to my ears with baby projects now that I'm mid way thru my second trimester?
I keep picking up this blanket to finish it, even though the baby is due December and it will be hot, I can't wait to see a baby on the blanket, wait not a baby.... my baby!
Whenever I pick this up, I get distracted by the pretty colours and then time flies by and I lose concentration and put it down again!
