Cheeky

Blue skies today but with a cheeky blustery wind that can cut you in two and has your skirt up around your ears!


Crafting has been sporadic of late, not sure why, just sometimes it is nice to chill out of an evening.  That said, I have managed one or two bits and have something in the pipeline to start.

I bought this lovely book a while ago now and fell in love with this scarf/wrap as soon as I saw it.  







That was until I sourced the Kidsilk wool and I realised that I would have to remortgage the Fairyglade to pay for it!  And so it sat looking at me each time I browsed the book.  Then one day recently when I spied a gap in the rain clouds, I popped into my local wool shop where I spotted this at the very bottom of the end of line basket.








Now I almost fainted with excitement, my heart was doing that skippity, hippity thing it does when something is so delicious.  Could it be...might it be....Oh My Goodness it was!!!!  Yikes, grab it quick before anyone else realises what it is.  Why were there no other peeps elbowing me out of the way leaving me weeping and wailing and gnashing my teeth!!??


With not a moment to lose I scooped all three balls up and practically ran to the tills.  £2.99 each as opposed to the normal price of £8.25.  A saving of nearly £16.  Bargain!!  It isn't enough to make the wrap, but there is now a scarf to be made with my name on it!


I loved making this teas cosy which comes together in no time at all.  The flowers are the the consuming bit but such a pleasure to crochet and it gives you a chance to use up all those little scraps of wool that can be found in the bottom of your bag.
 








This little coathanger is sooooo cute.  I found it in recycled bin at my local supermarket and popped it in my bag.  I haven't seen one this size before.  Another easy peasy design that turns the mundane into something really quite fabulous....at least I think so?






That's all for this post, am hopeful of showing you another cute project soon this time with a bit if a holiday theme.

Dear Devina,

What fun you've been having! I really love the filmy yarn, although with a toddler around, I might have to wait a few years for a similar shawl. :)

Love,

Marqueta

Hi Dev,
I got my tea cosy today. I love it. It is beautiful. The colours are perfect. Thanks so much. I love all the lace too and thanks for the book.
I sent your fairy on Saturday as I couldn't get to the post office before as I wasill last week. I hope it reaches you soon.
