Well, I was just having a 'very quick' look on Twitter this morning, (my husband will laugh at that bit - if you're an avid tweeter you know it's impossible to have a quick look...!) and I came across a great new idea from Wendy at 1st Unique Gifts. She has created 'Handmade Monday' where people who enjoy making things can share their ideas and creations on her blog. Please do have a look at the 1st Unique Gifts blog and also Wendy's website 1st Unique Gifts - she makes gorgeous things.
What a fabulous way to brighten up Mondays - thank you Wendy!
So, for what it's worth here is my little contribution. As we all know, Valentines Day is coming up and it's inspired me to make some little knitted hearts. I haven't knitted for a while (crochet took over!) but these hearts were good fun to make, mainly because they didn't take too long. I like the idea of the personalised one, but am not quite happy with the edging yet... another one in pink is currently on the needles!
If you are interested, the red heart is for sale in my Folksy Shop .
Finally, I want to share this photo. I was at a craft fair just before Christmas, and it started to snow really heavily - those really big, fat flakes. Some flakes swirled into my little hut and landed on some of my crochet items and amongst them was this perfect tiny snowflake - I hope you can actually see it! The photo was only taken on my phone, and it looked much nicer in real life!! You don't often actually see snowflakes like that do you? They're usually all squashed by the time they land.
Well, I'd better get on with some 'proper' work!
Back soon - have a great week everyone :)
