Some of you may remember from a post long ago that I enter competitions from time to time and I even win from time to time! I’ve recently won again. Yippee!
These gorgeously lovely earrings arrived by post. They are Maple leaves made from maple wood and I adore them. I’ve always been a bit of an earring fan. Thank you very much to Taryn Karen Wilson at http://www.woolymossroots.com Take a look at the Etsy shop for more Wooly Moss Roots goodness.,,
On my recent trip to Yarndale 2015 I must say that I did leave rather loaded with projects to make, ideas to mull over and enthusiasm unbounded! However, rather than allow these projects to join my UFO (Unfinished Objects) or PHD (Projects Half Done) pile I have decided to call them PIM (Projects In Mind) I have a lot of these elusive projects all in my mind!
I purchased this lovely, colourful pack of wool from Attic24, which will become a crocheted Coast Ripple Blanket one day. Take a look at http://www.attic24.typepad.com
I was delighted to meet a fellow blogger Christine Perry who blogs under the name of “Winwick Mum”. She has recently published a book “Super Socks” which she very kindly signed for me. One day I will have a go at knitting socks (another PIM?) and join her on line sockalong. It was fab to put a face to a name of someone I have followed on line for some time.
I also found some fabric exactly right for Nanna Amy’s Vintage Tea Party. This will be used to up cycle a vintage leather case. Phew ….. More work!
If I was to change one thing about Yarndale It would be to have a bloggers meet up. It would be wonderful to meet for a coffee for a blogging natter!
still more about Yarndale 2015 to follow….
As I mentioned previously I attended a Bloggers event at Lush, Chester at the week-end. I met other bloggers, which was great and proved that all those bloggers out there are not just cyber fiction! Lush, Chester pulled out all stops and made the evening great fun. Kii (posing above) did a great job at demos, commentary and laughter. She is a real Little Miss Dynamite!
One thing that I did notice is that I was (am) DECADES older than all the other bloggers! Not that you can tell from the photo. I had expected this so was not at all put out to be Granny Lush or should I say Lush Granny?
I adore the Lush idea of wrapping a gift in a scarf “Knot-Wrap By Lush” We were given a Knot-Wrap as a gift. I was particularly thrilled with mine as it was very vintage. I now have a fab stash of Lush treats which I will demo at some point. I will wait for a dull, dark, dismal day so that I am cheered up by the wonderful Lush aromas and visual treats for body and sole!
So, for now, it is good bye from the Lush Granny.
Call back tomorrow for a new regular feature called “Wordsmith Wednesday”
