Okay, so I shall start with the most recent stuff. How I have managed to find the time to photograph all this stuff I don’t know, but I did.
New duvet! On sale at BHS. I just couldn’t resist all the scrummy colours. It brightens up the whole room.
Most recently I have been lusting over my stash of Rowan Handknit Cotton. I LOVE it! Some of it was gifted to me by a dear friend. I have since added quite a lot more to it. Have a look and drool with me!
See?! There are more scrummy skeins underneath, but they’re just more of the same colours. I arranged it so you could only see one of each colour.
So what am I going to do with it?
Well, I am going to eat tuna.
Yes, you heard me! I took the basic pattern of a tuna-tin cover from Attic24 and put my own spin on it. Here’s what I came up with.
First I spread a lot of my craft stuff on my bed. Bits of fabric I hope to use to line the tin (when I get the right glue) and various buttons and beads. My stash basket and of course, the tin.
I had a picture in my head of what I wanted it to look like. I spent a long time choosing my colours and putting them together.
I tried crocheting some green seaweed to attach to the cover but it ended up looking too big and tacky. So I had to resort to embroidery.
I was pretty pleased with the results! I sewed on a couple of metalic, fish beads and tadah!
I love it!
Right, that’s me for now. Another cuppa and some housework to do!
