soooo.... I have been a bit slack on the blogging thing recently, life has been busy and there is so much devastation around with natural disasters in Japan and New Zealand that I haven't been in a terribly creative mood......but I have got back into it today.
We went down to Geelong to visit Gary's dad for the long weekend, which was fun and a nice break, I took my knitting and got a fair bit of a scarf done, till I reached a bit with limey green and hadn't bought the colour with me, doh!
I thought I'd show you my supposed work space, which I have recently tried to spruce up a bit, to encourage me to sit there and be creative!
It looks a bit of a mess, but this is actually pretty tidy for me.
In the photo above, you can see my 'inspiration board' with a few pretty pictures pinned on it. I went through a little phase of buying gorgeous inspiring cards with images that I like, the only problem is I keep having to use them for emergency gifts that I forget to buy cards for!
Now I come to the things that prompted this post - my new green and red storage baskets!
Aren't they lovely? I treated myself when I checked out the Geelong Spotlight, I really like them, and they are practical too!
.....and from another view...
Wanna see what's in them?
....perfect for crochet cotton (14 balls in there), and some lovely multi coloured wool that I couldn't resist, also from Geelong Spotlight. (they had a lot of different stuff to the one close to me).
I think a couple of bright, crazy stripey scarves would look great in this stuff.
I have a couple of new ideas floating around the old head, and just need to knuckle down and give them a go, I think I am worried they won't turn out like I am visioning, so am putting off trying. How stupid, just do it woman!! More on these at a later date!
Oh, something else, I am thinking of starting a knitting/crochet group locally, so if anyone lives on the Western Port side of the Mornington Peninsula and would like to get together, stay tuned! or give me an email. Maybe a Brown Owl Group ?
Ok that's about all for now , I am going to try and post more often I promise, but my life is pretty boring, so you have been warned!! Haha...
Have a great day!
