~ a mat

Hi lovelies!
i'm making a mat
{from some t-shirts i picked up at the outlet stores, & an old pillow case}

i cut them up into as long strips as possible

then rolled them into balls of yarn

then i stitched/crocheted 5 strands together {after realising 4 doesn't plait :)
winding it around into an oval
stitching it in place

crocheting a border with my finger

& waiting until i can find/acquire some more material to make it bigger :)

so many pretty colours for you today!!!
lovely thoughts

~ silk petals,

hi! {happily waving!}
i made a silk flower for you,

these are the templates.
the squares are for the larger & smaller petals,
& the rectangle is to form the centre bud.

simply fold {fabric right side out!}
make a straight stitch,
gather it into a circle to form the bud.
then continue with the same piece of string,
stitching around the outer edge of the folded square{now a triangle}
gathering it into a petal shape.
mix and match fabrics & petal sizes to your hearts desire :)
loveliness & hugs, always!!!

~ l o v e .. .

this week i plucked some sunlight from a tree, after making a ring out of my Irish rose granny square, & tying it with a soft pink ribbon.. .
i also
bought peonies for Mother's Day!!!
{& a gorgeous pink Iris i found by an abandoned building, such a lovely flower to sit in a cup on the bench & ponder about.. .the magnificent structure of the unfurling frills, the glistening rosegold petals --- have you ever noticed how they sparkle in the sunlight like glittering gold? oh peonies, oh iris of pink, you are my two favourite flowers!!!

sending such glorious, soft, fragrant wishes for you today dear hearts!!!
