Hello my crafty friends!
It has been a very productive week around these parts, I have been having a last minute flurry of crafty activity before my market stall on Saturday. I decided to make a sign for my stall out of wire and yarn. It has turned out very (ahem) handmade looking, but I think I will just go with it, and embrace the imperfections! ( Who would have thought winding yarn around wire would be such a tricksy time consuming activity!!)
I am actually rather pleased with it, I wanted something spindly and naive and colourful, I think this fits the bill quite well really, and I guess no one else will have one exactly the same. I am not really a slick, sophisticated person, so I think my wonky writing sign suits me!
.....My lovely dad made me a pigeon hole shelf so I can display all my yummy yarn at the market, I gave it a paint in this gorgeous blue with some green highlights. You can kind of see how my sign is going to hang over the shelves, although this is looking at it from the back...
.......this is the front ( sorry about the photo quality, this was taken with my phone, I am loving the
lo-fi filter on Instagram at the moment, but it looks a bit blurry here) Still need to make one more pom pom for the first i. Must not forget!
.....I have been hooking up a heap of these 2 colour flowers for some little packs of crochet embellishments, even if they don't sell, they are fun to make and I can use
them for my snail mail pen pals.
I just love all the colours in these stacks!
( So many gorgeous colours in the Cascade Ultra Pima cotton
very hard to limit myself to a set palette)
.....and lastly I have made a few more tapestry crochet washcloths, and actually got the edging finished too! I'm on fire I tell you!! ;)
I have made other stuff too, but don't have photos to show you, I am sure I will take some shots at the market to show you all how it looks set up properly. Then I promise I won't talk markets again for a while, you are all probably sick to death of hearing about it!
If you are in the Southern Bayside suburbs of Melbourne at all on Saturday though, do pop into Nanna Cool Market and say hello! It is being held at the Chelsea Activity Hub in Showers St, Chelsea, 10 -2pm!
I hope you have had a good week and found some time to unleash your creative mojo too!
Have a great day/night!
