Blitz and Bomb
You know how I like all things rainbow? Well just lookie at the knife I found in TK Maxx- so pleased.
I’m at the half way point of my Blitz The List week!
I thought I would share what I have made from my Wanna Make 2014 list so far.
New curtains for daughter’s room.
She chose and bought the fabric and lining herself while on a trip to Manchester.
Her room is seaside themed.
Next item is a dress for me.
3 vintage buttons were perfect. I had only the 3 on a card, so these really were meant to be on this dress.
A bias band hid the waistband seams.
Next are a pair of variegated purple socks with Finnish yarn Ulla gave me when we met in Oxford.
While knitting them I came across a closing down sale and bought a matching scarf.
They will go in the Christmas Trunk for me.
Yesterday and this morning I got this far with 2 cushion covers from an idea I have had since Spring first arrived.
Bees with their hive in a tree.
I toyed with adding blossom but then thought it would be too much pink.
Birds with their nest.
It was inspired by the great tits which nested in one of our boxes in Spring.
I am proud to announce a yarn bomb on Wesley Street in Southport.
The sight of it made me smile today, even though it was raining.
Flowers on the protective mesh around a sapling tree.
Garland wrapped around bollards.
Bunting galore and flowers on a net hiding utility boxes.
Anyone could decorate their window sills year round with this idea.
A floral wishing well.
A knitted pond and duck- so appropriate in this weather.
A knitted baby in a decorated buggy.
A decorated bike and baskets.
So many of these flowers lined the street.
Spare wheels of flowers.
I was especially interested in these garlands.
The cakes behind looked pretty good too.
Lollipops outside the sweet shop.
Bertie Bassett and licorice allsorts.
See the lilac butterfly?
Close up of the yarn pond.
Which coordinated with the shop’s display.
More floral bunting. I hope you enjoyed the quick tour of my local yarn bomb.
“The Yarn Fairy” have been working very hard. Hopefully it will be dry tomorrow and more people will be out and about to see it.
