Hello and thank you to all our new followers and for the lovely comments – we are really encouraged!
As Autumn approaches we are still lucky enough to have some gorgeous, bright blue-skied days! So, we thought we’d show you one of Victoria’s recent projects.
Firstly, let us introduce you to Mr Murphy, the Kelp Collector…
Luckily for Mr Murphy, he lives very close to a beautiful beach where kelp is plentiful. He often comes home bearing gifts for Mom.
It was one of these pretty gifts that was the inspiration for the “Happiness Rainbow”. Apart from the rainbow shaped piece of kelp (not the one above, but you get the picture) the idea first came from this gorgeous post we found on Ravelry.
It was such an easy little project – so lovely and colourful – which will happily brighten up the baby room.
Just 5 simple flowers with crochet chains, attached to kelp/wood/hanger or anything really!
…..and while we were outside taking these pics, this beautiful Orange-breasted Sunbird decided to join us!
Go on, give it a go – it’s the perfect way to use up all those odd bits of colourful yarn!
I expect this to be one of the last GLORIOUS day of summer so I thought what better day to add a little colour…to my garden.
Of course Nyaris, our gardener, thinks I am a raving lunatic
Welcome to the world.
This is the message you get from WordPress when you create your brand new blog. Seems extremely apt, seen as though this is all a a whole new and exciting world for us as novice-bloggers and wool-mad women. I suppose the first thing we have to do is stand up and say “Hello, our names are Maryanne and Victoria and we are wool addicts”!
What is a wool addict? Oh, you don’t know? Ok, in a nutshell then.
Its a person who:
- hides bags/boxes/drums of different colours/fibres/weights of WOOL in shelves/cupboard/dark spaces
- may or may not be actually ABLE to crochet/knit but is not in the least bit worried about that fact.
- on viewing a new picture/pattern; on hearing about something new from a friend or even just sees a new brand/colour of wool, just HAS TO HAVE IT!
Get the picture? I know you can’t really relate to what I’m saying. Not yet.
Anyway, we are going to be having lots of fun in the future, filling this space with loads and loads of inspiration, colour and beautiful things. So, to begin with, we have set ourselves a mini-goal………..*drum roll please*…..
Woah, wait, wait, wait. That’s a bit much for our first time.
This is kind of what I meant….
Something pretty. And small. Or may this…
and DEFINITELY this…
