I'm decorating like a mad thing at the moment. The weather doesn't lend itself to venturing outside for long periods of time so, here I am, wielding my brush and roller. I've nearly finished the lounge. It was a pale green and is now a very grown-up cream. Gosh it's so lovely and light. I get terribly immersed when I'm decorating and very boring conversationally. I fear if you and I bumped into each other on the street, I'd have very little to say of interest. I'm sure you'd shift uncomfortably from one foot to another and then make your excuses before legging it!
(A bit of a rushed and grainy photo but it hopefully shows I'm getting there! Yup, the telly's on - can you tell it's half term?)
As I say though, I am now nearing the end and my mind is turning to accessories. I am not afraid of whimsy and find it's presence in my life very pleasing indeed. I'm thinking jaunty strings of (naturally) crocheted bunting (using my own pattern with the addition of easy peasy daisies), jugs of spring flowers, framed prints and postcards, strings of fairy lights and stuffed hearts. They all delight me.
I particularly adore tulips. When I saw this post of Lucy's, I fell head over heels in love with her new mosaic tile and hotfooted it straight over to Felicity's shop on Folksy for a look see. This morning, my very own tulip tile came thudding through the letterbox.
I'm tickled pink with it.
On the crochet front, I have quite a bit more to show and tell but will save that for next time. What I will say though is that I haven't been able to stop popping back and looking at this gorgeous blanket. Everything about it appeals to me big time and I may have accidentally-on-purpose made sure my aran yarn stash is fully stocked. Just in case ..!
Hope all's well with you.
