I know, sounds very dramatic, but it's how I'm feeling! I just thought 'I want to learn to crochet', I saw all the beautiful, colourful things people were making and I thought, I want to do that!
I want to create loveliness like that. What I hadn't really thought of, was how EXPENSIVE it would be! That hadn't even entered my head! I didn't realise how I would be drawn to the most expensive, beautiful, smooth, delicious yarn!!! Silly Girl!
I've got a bit left, enough to make a couple of cushions, if I get one or two balls of another colour....but this week I FELL IN LOVE, with the most gorgeous cotton yarn from Rowan. Some was in the sale, I was sooooo tempted, but even in the sale it's out of my budget! Anyway, most of the colours I loved weren't even in the sale! Isn't that always the way!
I've dreamt about it, my thoughts have wandered to it, far too many times this week.....it's crazy isn't it, how it gets under your skin! I wanted to rush to the shopmtoday to buy it, I did the ironing instead!!! I could just imagine myself wrapped up in a blanket made of those beautiful colours!
So my Lovelies....any tips? I only wanted to use wool or cotton yarn, but that's unrealistic, unless of course I win the lottery (note to self, you have to buy a ticket first!). Any alternatives to these, lovely but expensive yarns? I really do want to continue to crochet, but it's got to be more cost effective!
But on a happier note.....my little cup has returned, to be with the other little cups....Hooray! Look at them, sat all together, happy again! Look at that brilliant little tray, loving flamingos at the moment!
And I'm loooooooving this too! My latest wallpaper, just YUMMY!
It's been yucky here today....so I've made up some Sunshine Vintage Wallpaper packs up, they are soooo 1970's! Bright and cheerful!
14 pieces of sunshine in each pack! Lovely, brighten anyone's day...you could cover shelves, little cupboards, suitcases.....I could go on, and on!
And these are my new blooms, a little soggy but still beautiful!
