So, in a giddy fit of activity, I bring you my third ta-dah of the year so far (if I continue at this rate, my entire house will soon be just one enormous mass of yarn, with tunnels running through it so that the kids can get out the door to school - much like the inside of a crochet-obsessed hamster's cage, I suspect. Except, perhaps, without the poo all over the floor.) So, with that picture in your mind, I present you with my Attic 24-inspired bunting. Ta-dah:
I've said it before, I'll say it again: I don't mind a bit of wonkiness every now and then.
Elegantly, temporarily held up with drawing pins (can you spot it?) until I find the perfect thing with which to hang it.
So, there are two things about this bunting:
1) I am squirmingly irritated by the fact that it's not exactly the same width as the bay, despite the fact that I measured it. I should have twigged beforehand really, but of course, when I hung it it stretched and so is all loopy. This is annoying me immensely, but at the moment the annoyance isn't outweighing the fact that I simply can't be a*sed to get it all down, remove a flag and re-do the end bit. In fact, looking at it as I type, I think I'll need to remove two flags, Anyway, at the moment, laziness wins out.
2) You see the flag with the little blue flower on it? Shall I tell you why the little blue flower is on it? It's because my ever-present crochet-assistant-slash-tidy-upper decided to help me by relocating three of the unattached flags. Eventually, after much searching and a slightly sniffy text to Mr N (where I may or may not have questioned whether he was responsible for the disappearance of said crocheted articles) I found them. In the kitchen bin. Oh how I laughed. Ha ha ha. I fair nearly split my sides when I discovered that one of them had a little blob of unidentified, yet highly staining, food on it. Hee hee hee, said I.
Oh, and after that little outburst, I should point out that I do, actually LOVE it! It's very pleasing and speedy to make up and the possibilities for a bit of adornment are endless. I highly recommend it for a bit of happy hooky time.
And finally, here's a thing I've decided to do with my projects from now on:
This book is my crochet/recipe/ideas/general gubbins bible and if I ever lost it, I would be bereft. It goes everywhere with me and has pages and pages of stuff in it. Anyway, as of now it also has little snips of the yarn used for my different projects too, so that if I ever want to know what yarn I have used previously I have the details at my fingertips. Handy, eh? x
