I have been making a scrapbook of our holiday from last year. For me a scrapbook is about little things that I collect that remind me of holidays or exciting events. This is not the same as scrapbooking. It is mostly just sticking!
I like to get a nice notebook or album, ideally spiral bound, and stick my treasures in along with the odd piece of writing. These pages are from my summer holiday scrapbook of 1993.
I have been using a similar approach for my latest scrapbook, but adding some interesting lettering, something new I have been trying.
I have been really enjoying making this scrapbook and look forward to my next one which will hopefully be a bit different.
I took a pot of tester paint and a pinboard I found in a charity shop for 30p and by combining the two ended up with this bright green pinboard. Perfect for my craft room.
I have been playing with my new colours of Motex Tape to label the boxes in my craft room. You can buy the tape (and the label writers if you dont still have an old Dymo one!) from Berylune.
I really like this small bit of colour on my plain white boxes. Only another 30 or so boxes to label!
I have managed to finish another long term project, this time it is my rainbow ripple blanket. I started it last May and selected happy, spring like colours. Just looking at this blanket makes me smile 🙂
Here is a close up so you can see the ripple better.
I knitted a jumper! I used a relatively straight forward 1970s pattern and Stylecraft Special DK. Here are some silly pictures of me wearing the jumper.
On a recent visit to the British Museum we were looking at the Assyrian Lion Hunt reliefs (668-631 BC) when I noticed this guy amongst all the hunters and dead lions.
He is definitely carrying giant knitting needles and big balls of yarn!
