This is the bunting I made and the stamp I cut to stamp the bunting I made.
When my book comes out in August, hopefully some book shops will hang this stamped bunting in their windows as a display.
My book!! Oh my gosh! Did you see I put a little pic of the cover over there on my side bar. Eeeeeep!!
This is the wool I was lucky enough to win in Little Woollie Jules's giveaway to celebrate the opening of her online store. Thanks Jules!!
Delicious and soft and squishy and waiting patiently for the perfect project. Six 50gm balls, any suggestions?
This is the show-off autumn kissed grapevine on the front side of our house. The back-side (ha!) grapevine gets less sun and is yellow.
This is about 30 or 40 rows of this brilliant idea I had that is never going to happen. Such a shame. A wide, loooooooong, grey scarf would be so useful and snuggly and cute. But realistically, 120 stitch rows of plain knit and plain purl are not so much fun. Unravel.
This is the state of our cubby so far.
There'll be more tomorrow. @thebuilderrecycles (on instagram) is coming at 8am.
This was my attempt at a wintery colour palette blanket.
It hurts my eyes. Unravel.
These are the potatoes we picked last Friday.
It's funny, all week long I've been obsessively considering my every day in May project.
I've thought about walking every day, crocheting a square a day, knitting a square a day, making a pom pom a day, cooking a new recipe a day, reading a chapter a day, writing a blog post a day, naming something I am grateful for each day, doing something different with apples every day, taking a bag to the op-shop a day or doing some sort of photo challenge each day.
But late this afternoon, waaaaaay into the first day of May, I admitted defeat. For some reason I am just too crazy busy this May. Between the book stuff and the preserving stuff and the home stuff and the mothering stuff, there is just no room to take on another project. I have no idea how it is possible that with three at school this year I am still busier than last year, but I am. Either that or just more realistic.
I adored last year's motif a day in May and the May two years before that. I loved choosing the pattern, finding the cotton, hooking each square and watching the pile of finished motifs grow.
Hopefully I'll be back on board next year.
Hopefully I'll stick to this decision and not freak out and rush off to make a square as soon as I've pressed publish on this post. Hopefully.
So what are you up to over there?
Are you busier this year than last?
Are you making every day in May?
Or are you too tired by the end of the day?
Oh and if I disable anonymous comments is that going to worry you?
