Tony and I attended a ‘softpots’ workshop with ‘Annie Softpot’… (google it) and learned how to make beautiful plantpots from nylon stockings. I have just put them outside in my garden as they were starting to take over the house. I have three more in my kichen. I think these outdoor ones make a lovely colourful addition to my garden.
I have just bought the white ceramic chicken from ebay. It comfortably holds about ten medium sized eggs and has freed up a bit of space in my fridge..
I was browsing pinterest for some ideas on how to dress my kitchen window when I spotted these beautiful nets. I sent off for them and they arrived today. I have just put them up in my kitchen. They give me privacy without blocking out the light. And they look gorgeous.
I have alternated blue and white lace on each shelf in all of my cupboards but actually ran out of white lace for this cupboard…. I am waiting for more to arrive. The little poinsettia teapot set is the one I use at Christmas when I only want to make a cup of tea for myself.
In July I had a major flood in my kitchen which ruined the old one completely. This past fortnight I have had a team of Kitchen fitters in ripping the old one back to bare plaster and floorboards. This is how the new looks right now. Hopefully it will get finished off today and then the decorators can come in and paint it all. I love how neatly the central heating boiler has been boxed in. The top part is simply a loose open topped box to allow for air flow
Hello everyone. What a strange year I have had since I Iast posted. My ex husband died and left his house to our son Alexander. It has taken a huge amount of work to make it habitable. Alexander moved into the house with his girlfriend about 6 weeks ago. Then last week he graduated from university with a first class honours degree in music technology He has set up his own business doing the lighting and sound for music events and it seems to be working well so far. Tony and I are empty nesters now and my craft stash has expanded to fill aAlexander’s old room.
I thought you might like to see how much we love Christmas. There are more photo’s on my blog and I will be adding even more over the next day or two. northyorkshirescraftguru.blogspot.co.uk
We have had great fun this morning yarn bombing our local railway station. This is just a small selection of photo’s. The bottom picture shows boats knitted by an 85 year old man from my local wood carving club. Bert is an amazing knitter and once knit me a whole veg basket full of fuit and veg for a veg competion that I was running… it really was the star of the show amongst all the homegrown produce.
I have had great fun drying flowers this past year. They really keep the colour well and if you chose tiny flowers in bright colours they would make gorgeous table scatter or confetti for a natural wedding
I made this from ring pulls/poptabs and it won me a first prize at the show. I am thrilled to bits cos I was also awarded Reserve Champion for my woodcarving. Also won a 1st for my little beaded box. If only you could have seen the smile on my face yesterday when I saw that I had some winning entries
