As I have not been able to find a new job yet, I have been putting my time to good use (around agency visits) and have sorted out the hanging baskets, window boxes and pots in my front garden. We are going for pink and cheery this year...
Filled with double headed Petunias, a blousy pink
Geranium intersperced with blue Lobelia
More Geranniums, Busy Lizzies, couple of Penstemons
and a rather strking Coleus
More Petunias and Lobelia with great
instant colour making my front window
a joy to look out of!
I have also been asked recently for some gender-neutral baby booties, it is really lovely the number of mums-to-be who don't want to know what they are going to have. So I have whipped up some cream booties, a pair of navy blue Mary Janes with Zebra buttons and cos I like flowers and the basket weave pattern a couple of pairs of cocoa coloured booties with flowers, definitely not gender-neutral just plain lovely.
What I really enjoy about making booties, is how quickly they knit up... might make some beanie hats to match them... what do you reckon?
And finally, the good news is that the rushing for the Arts and Craft chair arrived in the post this morning, which means that I will have another item on my to do list!
