Having a play......

.......I have so much to do.....so much mundane stuff to get through.......so much crafty stuff to be getting on with.....but I choose to start something else....and play.....





Just fancied a bit of colour today and had lots of spare bits of colourful yarn I couldn't do very much with! So hearts it was and a colour filled morning has been had! Now, just have to think what to do with them..........then carry on with the mundane and all the stuff I have been putting off doing!

Happy Friday and have a beautiful colourful weekend all!!!!!

  8. Rainbow loveliness!
    We might see a few Rainbows this weekend in my neck of the woods, as rain is forecast, I hope it doesn't pass us by again, no decent rain for about 6weeks and the the ground is like concrete!
    Thanks for brightening up my day.

  12. I looked at the little picture that pops up on my blog list and thought you had done some beautiful cake decorating!
    Even better that they are crochet, that is unedible (I presume!), and will be kept and enjoyed.
    As always, you present the most beautiful posts that send my, sometimes low, spirits flying. Thank you!!

  18. Wow, they are gorgeous!! Can you please share how to make those roses? I just love them....

    I thought of you today as I made a rare trip to Primark and saw that lovely peach rose bangle you showed us some weeks back!! It made me smile.

  22. tee hee - I too abandoned the list and painted a block for our bedroom (hardly top of the priorities!!!) Spent a while admiring it, placing it, photographing it, then finally blogging it.
    Strangely enough I do actually feel better for it...sometimes you just cant fight the creative urge!
    happy weekend

  23. Good for you Doll! I'm doing the same, bit of bloggy stuff and making sugar cube hearts which I'm totally copying you with. I'll be having a little tea party on Sunday that they will be perfect for.

    I adore the way you have arranged those gorgeous hearts shame they can't stay like that...stay just where they are, art gallery style!

    What ideas have you got for them? Maybe you could frame some, put some onto crochet hangers, hang some as a garland but vertically like the wooden ones I have (see my hearts post), tie them to jam jars....endless possibilities

  27. So pretty! I must have ago at making some, I'm still not very good at doing crochet. The problem with me is I like everything to be instant.

    I hope you have a fab weekend.....

  30. I think those little hearts would look lovely sewn onto a white cushion. In a grid pattern... Or perhaps just scattered all over, I can't make up my mind hehe. xx

  35. Ooooooohhhhhh!!! I love the colours together in the second photo; corals, pinks, oranges and yellows together just look scrummy.

    I love how you can just whip things up in no time at all. It takes me forever to crochet just one small granny square. I'm very jealous of you, I know you haven't been crocheting for long. Hope I get quicker eventually!

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
