Last Weekend....

I meant to post this last Monday, but the week has sort of gotten away from me. Saturday my two fellas were gone for a big chunk of time and I had the house to myself. This isn't something that happens very often so I wasted the first hour being a bit fluttery and scatteredly trying to decide how to best use this block of time. Cleaning? Uh, no. Paperwork? Yeah, right. Grocery shopping? Nevah! Organize my closet? I wish, but no. List making? Hmmm, maybe.

Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that I would do exactly what I felt like doing. That happened to be making stuff and watching old movies and drinking lots of coffee. Yay! It was so lovely....a rainy, cold day outside...I did lots of different things; crochet, knit, paper crafts, I even made a small bowl out of twine....Would you like to see...?


edging for a luxury clothing item I'm working on...

two El Grande Cowls for my darling dear brother....one dove grey, one dark charcoal...

a component for a secret little something....

a little bowl crocheted from jute, aka twine...I ran out of twine so it's smaller than planned...


and I made two huge pom poms out of white tissue paper...not sure what I'll do with them, they're sitting on the hall table at the moment. I do know this...I absolutely love these gigantic pom poms. You should try making them, they're addicting. Find out how to right here. I'll be making many more of them, out of different papers....


I even made a couple of other things, but I'll save them for another post. This weekend is a four day school holiday...What do you think the chances are that I'll be able to craft my head off like last Saturday...?

Thank you for being such lovely friends and stopping in...xo

I love the poms....I would imagine the jute was rough on the fingers to knit?

I'm smitten with that jute bowl, seriously. we all need a bit of time alone to renew, it's what gives us our interesting perspectives on life, my friend.
