|'colour collection' blue and reds|
We are having some glorious Indian Summer weather the last few days, still, sunny and warm, very idyllic! I have been enthused be the nice weather to get stuck into the garden and start preparing it for some Autumn planting. I have sown new seeds in the hot house and they have germinated already, so looking good there.
Also I have picked up my new order of yarn, and put some new colours and some 'colour collections' into my shop. It is really a lot of fun making up lovely colour combinations and making little samples of things to see how they look together, I'd love a full time job like that!
The Little Woollie Yarn Store is slowly starting to fill up. Although I have seen lots of gorgeous yarn I'd like to stock one day, I have to be patient! I think this shop will be something that grows quite organically, so I will be adding new things as funds allow, hopefully often!
I have been using the diamond pattern to make little colour samples, and am hoping to sew some together this weekend. I am quite hooked on making diamonds (pardon the pun)and I think this is going to be a gorgeous blanket. I think I will make it quite small, maybe cot sized, just so I can get it finished a bit quicker. I can't wait to see how they will look all sewn together.
............this is the colour collection I have called 'pretty pastels', fairly self explanatory!
.........this little collection is the colour combination I used for my star stitch blanket, but I think they look just as nice made up in granny squares or diamonds! :)
.....and these are a few new colours I have added to the shop for some lovely Autumn crafting...
I have had a great couple of days playing with all of these beautiful yarns, I have so many ideas for things to make, but I am trying to finish some current makes before I start anything new, it is taking some self discipline!
So anyway, I am off to get dinner and then kick back with the crochet hook in front of the football, such a hectic life I lead! :)
Have a lovely weekend!
