A Little Crafting!

I spent a week away, this time in York and London - pity it wasn't New York because then I could have done London, New York and Paris in a month, but London, York and Paris it is!! I will post of my travels soon...but as this is meant to also be a craft blog I thought I would post a little of my latest endeavours. Having time to craft whilst away was great - I managed to make 2 more baby blankets and have started a third. I have found new ideas whirling in my mind with the purchase of some hand-dyed pre-felt from Twist, which I have begun to incorporate into my designs, a little here and a little there, and indeed the orange giving me vivid ideas for blankets - fish bowls, caravans, fields of carrots....




I love snow but living on the coast means it doesn't happen very often, but this morning I woke to beautiful white flakes falling gently from the sky, like goose down, floating gently towards the ground, twirling as they are caught on the gentle breeze....

Wow it looks divine with all that snow (though maybe also a bit troublesome to move about in).
