Running 'SIBOL' takes up so much of my time but over the last few months I have been Crocheting for our Home.
As you know I have recently had the new Kitchen installed (see previous post) and we also had a new Roof put on the Conservatory so we took the opportunity to re-decorate with new Wallpaper and changed the paint from Green to Cream. New Carpet too. I wanted to give my Conservatory a re-freshed look. My previous Cushions had faded so I decided to make new. Most of the yarn is James Brett's which is only around £1.25 100gms and what wonderful yarn it is too! It took me quite a while to make the Cushions. I found a great video on You Tube for 'Loopy Flowers' here's the LINK and the Butterflies are from Netties Blog in Australia. LINK The same Butterflies as we use for our 'SIBOL' Blankets.
Do you like my Wall Art? Well that's what I call it anyway. Usually I stick on with those little white sticky fixers but after buying a packet from Sainsburys which didn't stick for some reason I decided to hammer a nail in to each piece of Crocheting. I know it sounds daft but I had to find a way of keeping everything on the wall. It's an awlful shame I have got that stupid pipe in the way but after having the new boiler fitted there wasn't really anything I could do about that. 'Unless you have any ideas?'
'A yarnbombed pipe maybe?' :)
The Roof has been changed from those polycarbonate panels to an Edwardian style.
Of course we had that awlful Sahara sand land on us several weeks ago and the Roof people very kindly came and cleaned it for us.
Now we can sit on the sofas in the evening and look through the glass up to the Stars....ooh..how romantic!
Thanks for visiting me today!
