Lovely Artwork at Feed Your Soul

I have mentioned this site before but I am always amazed by the talent of the artists and their generosity in offering away their prints for free download. There is so much beautiful variety and with me being someone who likes to change my wall art regularly this site is perfect but don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourself!

Animal House

In Haworth just before Christmas I spotted this little house shaped thimble rack in a second hand shop. I just knew it would be perfect for my collection of Lammermuir Designs animals, most of which had been put away in a box for ages. The wood of the house is quite dark so I lightened things up a bit by adding some Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers to the back wall of each slot. I think these papers are gorgeous and they really compliment the soft colours used on the animals.
Think this guy might be my favourite!

Crochet inspiration

I have fallen in love with the Granny Stripe Blanket pattern over at Attic24. Although I am still working on my blanket sized granny square I am itching to spread my newbie crocheter wings and try something a little more challenging. Not too challenging though, so I have limited myself to a baby blanket for my first forray into the vast crochet world outside of my little land of granny squares. I have chosen to use the same yarn as Lucy (Stylecraft Special DK) for this HAL (thats a hook along apparently!) in Lemon, Spring Green, Sherbert and White. It really is lovely and soft (and so, so affordable) and the colours make my heart sing.

Lego Love

How sweet is this little Lego house? My guy found a cute little Lego set at the local supermarket. This is my dream home in Lego form! It sits on the shelf above my craft desk and is guaranteed to always make me smile.

Granny Square Progress

As promised here is a quick photo of my granny square so far. I am taking this work in progress down to Cornwall with me this week so hopefully I'll be able to fit in some happy hooking in the sunshine by the sea...
