Let’s start with half-term madness shall we?
It all started last Saturday with a one night cub sleepover. Lots of busy children chariot racing, pot making, mosaic games and camp fires … Oh and marshmallows!
Plus one dreamy cup of latte for me and another tired cub scout leader, yum yum.
Then we had a week entertaining Little Miss H, as well as Number 1 Son. This involved …. You ready? … bowling, walking in very muddy woods (sorry no photos, was using all my concentration just staying upright!), cinema trip, playing with friends, two cycle rides and a girly shopping trip … Phew! But along with this I did manage to finish my flowery surprise.
Just to remind you it started like this
Then grew, and grew some more
And finally got made into this
A flowery waistcoat!
I am so very pleased with how it looks and have already had requests for mini ones. The original puffed flower pattern came from Meladora 1 on You Tube who created a beautiful purple scarf with it. I joined the flowers as I went along using her instructions which created a gloriously random pattern. I had to be really careful to choose the colours to do next and I think I managed to avoid clumping too much of the same colour together although now I look at the photos there are a few small gaps that need sewing together.
The flower theme seems to be continuing … Maybe the gorgeous weather has made me long for the spring. Either way I am now drawn to making more flowery bits. A garland inspired by the latest Mollie Makes is on it’s way … stay tuned!
Til the next time, have fun!
