Crochet covers for coat hangers and project polytunnel.
Hello all...as you can see I'm back. I had a good ole rummage around charity shops but came up with nowt. But Matalan was a different kettle of fish! Here are some items I got all reduced (of course)
Isn't that white teapot a bargain. It fits nicely underneath the caravan teacosy that I made to go in Daisy. A large citrus green bath towel £2.50 and the large stripey mug I will probably fill with flowers either real or made.
The cushions were all bargains being only a couple of pounds each mostly. Being a bit of a shopoholic I'm so glad I don't live anywhere near shops as I would be in there permanetly with the 'I wants'!!! The apple teatowel you can see on the right has been made into little curtains for the kitchen part of Daisy. 3 teatowels for £2.50. My cup overfloweth......sorry gotta go and lie down now :0D
Onto crafty stuff and this involves some wooden coat hangers that I got at our local charity shop. As I've already posted about covering them and making them look a bit prettier, here is one I've used for a brooch holder-hanger.
You may remember these long bits of crocheting...
They've been turned into these.....
All nice and bright and pretty! Should I put any in my Etsy shop? Some are going into the caravan so visitors have somewhere to hang there clothing.
Onto garden news....
here is the before picture. Look at it now in just 2 and a bit months. It's been a bit of an experiment as to what to grow and I have to say we had a lovely crop of strawberries, so we want to increase them. Courgettes are doing great. Have never, ever, eaten one before (how did I get so old and never try one!) I understand you can put them in cakes so that will be good to try.
Lots of other stuff to numerous to mention. It's nice to sit in there having a cuppa and just meditate, it's really warm in there. The outside veggie patch is a success with peas....everything else is growing very slowly out there, but I'm sure will get there in the end.
I will be linking up with various linky parties over the week. So do have a peek at them and have a nosy at others blogs.
