....You all think................ scarves can be worn whenever.........whatever the weather.........and wherever you are going! Thanks for that!

You mostly think.........that trying to dye the blanket would be a no-no.....and that flower embelishments are the way forward with it.

You mostly think........I should leave the blog layout as it is and just tinker here and there with the header when it takes my fancy.

Thank you all for your input! Sometimes my head is fuzzy and it needs a bit of outside help to make it work a bit better!

I shall take everything on board, carry on wearing my scarves, how and whenever I please, make a start on my blanket, and, most likely have a blog tinker.....

but first......

..............have a play with a ball of yarn recently purchased. It's called Snowdrops by Sirdar in the snuggly range. It is so pretty.......I have plans for it.

....and carrying on with some Christmas makes.........




  1. Beautiful images Coco!
    Have a nice day, come to my blog:)

  2. Absolutely agree ... maximum my-way scarf wearing is always to be preferred ;D And I'd have voted for minimal tinkering too. Can't wait to see what you have planned for that pretty white and green yarn!

  3. That yarn is lovely - can't wait to see what it becomes! Sue x

  4. I have really enjoyed seeing your colourful crafty images today. The white and green yarn looks cute with its little bobbly texture, I look forward to seeing what you make. Have a happy crafty day, Vanessa.

I've spent most of my free time this week messing about with my lbog and it's getting a bit addictive, I haven't done any knitting or crochet or jewellery making at all! I need to stop but now I've started it's so much fun I can't! Have a great weekend Vanessa, Em xx
