This week.....









A few things from my week......

1+2+3. Update on my blanket progress, it's all joined together and I am onto the edge now, then it needs a good blocking!  I don't have a picture of the edge at the moment, but it really makes a difference and I think it looks great !  Hopefully have a tadah for this one later in the week.  :)

4. Cotton, crochet books and mags looking pretty on the table :)  Just as nice as a bowl of fruit and I don't have to throw out a heap of rotting fruit when it doesn't get eaten! Win!

5. Halfway through a Summer sky cloud washer, hope to have it ready for the market on Saturday....

6. My favourite dahlias are flowering, don't you love this dark purple/pink/maroon colour!  I really love their showiness and massive size, so over the top, they have to be in my top five flowers. :)

7. This may look just like a boring garage to you, and yes it is, but it is also a before shot of my new Little Woollie Makes studio!!  Imagine this, those big iron doors are going, and some lovely glass french doors and a couple of windows are going to replace them.  The windows and doors arrived today and I cannot wait to get the next stage done.  The bricks are getting plastered and painted, and the floors getting lino or carpet, I haven't decided yet. And I am getting news lighting too!  Then the fun really starts with the decorating. ....So exciting! 


So, that's a bit of what I have been up to lately, how about you? 

Talk soon!

  9. You must be so excited about your new studio. The plans you have for it sound lovely! The dahlias look so pretty. I can't wait for Spring here in the US. We have another month to go before Winter is over. Looking forward to seeing all those pretty flowers.

  15. Your week looks so much better than mine. lol Love it all! The blanket is gorgeous, the dahlias too! So excited for you and the studio space! I'd do lino, quicker clean up with all those craft supplies not to mention lots of beverage spillage (been there done that).A very cold week here with snow flurries and ice, but signs of spring, a few brave daffodils blooming and the bees are waking up from their winters sleep. I found a freebie spool of plastic yarn, (used in the making of outdoor carpet )so I'm experimenting with that and the hook.

  23. I love the blanket, the colours really pop out at you, compared to the white background. Good luck with creating the studio. Can't wait for the big ta-dah!

  24. I'm really impressed with how your blanket is looking. Can't wait to see it finished. I laughed about the yarn etc on the table instead of fruit. I totally agree. I have a crocheted bowl of crocheted chillis in my kitchen. They'll never go off! Got me thinking though - what about a crocheted bowl of crocheted fruit for the table?

  25. Sorry - also meant to say how fantastic it is that you're getting a studio! If it was me I wouldn't be able to contain myself for excitement.

    1. Snap! After leaving my immediate comment, I was scrolling up to read that we basically had the same thoughts! Great minds think alike. Sshh! Don't tell anyone, but I am a teensy bit envious of Julie's opportunity to make a studio space. ;-)

  32. Deeply envious over the space in your garage-soon-to-be-studio. Will watch it's development with interest. Thought you might like to know that your mixed stitch stripey blanket is still inspiring hookers in this neck of the woods (Northern Ireland)!
