Take one a day

Day 13

I love Flickr. There's a whole world out there full of wonderfully creative people who are willing to share their work, lives, thoughts with you. I just love clicking my way through Explore. It can get mesmeric. You never know what will turn up with the next refresh.

My contacts are people with the same interests or are friends, relatives and people who, quite frankly, have a weird take on life. My favourites are special to me. This is why I don't understand it when you get your favourites favourited en masse by somebody you don't know and has nothing to give you back.

'Block them!' I hear you shout and I just might.

This is a very roundabout way to tell you about today's project. It's back to crochet for me. The other day one of me contacts Knitter gal posted a photo of an African flower hotpad. I'd always wanted to try this particular motif. These are my attempts. In order, starting with the first.


Those of you who have read my blog before will know that I suffer from crochet motif addiction. This is one that I will indulge in after this month is over. If I keep going I might perfect it.

Note to self - organic cotton is great but for this try something with really vibrant colours.

Today I've listed a little blue gingham house on Folksy. It can be used as a door hanger or as a wall decoration. The little red heart has been left open at the top. I use mine to post messages in.

Today's Folsky July Jewel is Lampwork Beads by Jo

I love these yummy red beads. I can think of a few things in my wardrobe that they would look great with.

I agree that flickr (and ravelry) are amazing places filled with amazing people and inspiration. Hours can go by following links and leads before I know what's happened!

I'll have to check out this folksy...never heard of it before... and thanks for the mention and link!
