Before I start I must thank all of you for your lovely comments on my Spin A Yarn blog last week, I have an Introduction to Crochet workshop this weekend, if it goes half as well as the Jumbo Crochet Basket one I shall be very pleased. I shall be popping over to Handmade Monday later to have a nose at all your lovely makes.
Taffy hasn't been out for a while so we thought we would take him on a walk. As usual he is into mischief, so took a bit of a tumble this time! (If you are new to my blog and are wondering who Taffy is, just click on the link to find out how he came about - if you enter his name in the search box on the left hand side of my blog you will be able to see what other adventures he has had.)
He didn't seem any 'worse for wear' though and all that messing about made him thirsty :)
In the pictures below you can see Taffy waiting for the steam train to come along.
If you are very astute you will see in the last picture we also saw the train heading back home!
Taffy was a lucky teddy!
I thought these snowdrops were beautiful, but Taffy decided to play a game of hide and seek!
Can you spot him in amongst the snowdrops?
You'll be glad to know, we did find him and he is now safely tucked up at home :)
We decorated our bedroom recently and whilst we were doing this we moved into the guest room. This room is blue and white (mainly white) so it got me thinking that it needed a few bits of decoration to catch the eye. So I popped over to Attic 24's website and found this birdie decoration.
I hope you like my version of it. I adapted the wing and the flowers slightly.
It now hangs on one of the walls in the room.
I also made a pot for the window sill. I placed a jam jar inside so I can pop a posy of pretty, fresh flowers in it for when any guests arrive
I used front and back post stitch and finished it off with a sort of rope edging.
I'm crocheting a little pair of baby sandals at the moment so hopefully I shall have those to show you next week, meanwhile, take care everyone and have a good week :)
