What with all the lovely sunshine this week there has been a welcome visitor to the garden (for a change), lots of dragonflies, really big ones flying around like mini helicopters. They seem happy to sit for ages on the rosebushes. I find them mesmerising to watch flying, and some of them flap past your ears making a buzzing with their wings.
I'm finally seeing some butterflies other than the cabbage whites, this lovely orange one landed on the washing.
Moving into the weekend and I've got plenty of crafty reading material although I think I need to start making a batch of brooches as I've just had some work accepted at a new gallery for their Christmas display.
I found this Crochet book in the library which seems to have some easy enough projects.
The slippers and wrist warmers below just might be within my capabilities!
This magazine, Sew Home (sept issue), attracted me because it had the Vintage Christmas supplement with it and there look to be a few nice things inside, see below.
Hope you have a lovely weekend if you are crafting. I really enjoy making stuff when the weather as fine as the natural light and warmth seem to kick start the creative process. Whereas grey and wet (like it usually is) send me into that 'can't be bothered' attitude. Have fun!
