It has been a very hot day here, so the boys and I went to visit some family on Phillip Island, about an hour away from here. We spent a very pleasant morning on the beach, the water was really nice and refreshing and we had fun catching waves and generally frolicking around. Then we had a sun bake, some lazy reading and chatting on the beach, catching up with my cousins who I don't see very often, a lovely day indeed. I was going to take some photos of our day, but when I went to use my camera I found the card thingy was missing. Doh!
So instead I am showing you pictures of some name bunting that I made for my nieces, supposedly for Christmas, but actually finished a few days late.
The pattern was based loosely on the one in Granny Chic by dottie angel, although I had to make it a fair bit bigger and I added the scalloped edging for a bit more colour.
(You can never have too much colour!) :)
The colours look quite different inside.
I am pretty pleased with these little banners, I think they will look really cute and vintagey on the girls' doors.
I am also doing quite well with my big blanket progress, so hope to have an update for you later in the week. I am very sorry for the slow progress of updates for my CAL, hopefully you ladies who have stuck it out are not too upset with me and have other projects to go to in the mean time, or better still are making it up as you go along, kind of like what I do! Anyway, I am trying to get a fair bit done over the next few nights, we are in for a couple of scorcher days and nights, so I think I will try and get some crochet done when it's too hot to sleep.
Till next time,
