WOYWW 94

Ok, so it's even more messy...

 

That's because I've hardly been at my desk all week.  There are even some of my husband's comics he's left there.  The orange paper is where I cut out some stars for my DS no 2 to decorate his party invitations, and the white paper with holes in is prep for a craft activity at a children's club I help out with.
Thought I'd show you the bargain punch storage I picked up from a local charity shop.  It's really useful to have them where I can see them easily.


This is what I store my lace and some ribbon in.  It's an old wooden trug, and I've wrapped the lace etc around dolly pegs.  They look like little ladies with beautiful dresses on!




And this is part of the reason I've not been at my desk this week...


I've been crocheting!
I'd forgotten how much I really enjoy it.

Been inspired by some beautiful blogs.
The bunting pattern came from >here<.
I didn't do the edging featured on the pattern.



Ended up doing 12 triangles.
I'll try and take better pics in the sunlight tomorrow.
The colours are so much prettier in these pictures :)

Happy Thursday. I'm just doing a very quick blog dash to make sure all our WOYWW friends get the heads up on the BIG celebration draw over in our blog shop. Please excuse this copied and pasted message but it's the only way I can get round you all this week. If you check out my blog you will see what's keeping me busy :-)

I love crochet too, and I have a great pattern for Christmas stockings, which reminds me I must do another for the new arrival, Rosie. Love your bunting.

Love all the storage you have there! Your bobbins of lace do look like ladies with lacey dresses! Sorry I am so late making it around but last week was very busy. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #162

Great pics Ruth, love the lace pegs - you're right. And I like the ingenious punch holder..but not as much as I love the drawers behind..lovely! I'm new to crochet but am tempted by the gorgeous bunting - you've been really busy!
