Time flies, felting and a 5th birthday ...

Well, so many blog posts have been written in my head, but then something else takes priority over my time and it doesn't get posted to the blog. I hope to write them more often again now.

So since last week, when I last posted, the main thing I have been spending time on is finishing off some knitted personalised bunting for Imogen's 5th birthday which has come out lovely. Lots of different sizes as I wanted to use up some odds and ends of wools and they were different thicknesses. Sewn onto a long piece of finger knitted wool. I shall adapt this each year with her age.

Other crafting has been making her a birthday crown which this year I decided to needle-felt and am pleased with the result, what do you think?

And then a little more needle felting to create this lovely badge for her to wear too. Simple but effective, I really like how it looks.

So we are enjoying birthday celebrations here, planning some quality family time at the weekend - a few options depending on the weather. A birthday update soon.

Back soon with other things going on, autumn crafts, planning for Christmas (yes, I said the C word!), and more. Now it's officially Autumn, happy Autumn everyone

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

  4. Happy birthday, Imogen. I hope you had a lovely day. Your crown looks beautiful.

  5. You've made some lovely things for Imogen's birthday, I'm sure she was really pleased with them, and it's so nice that the bunting can be adapted so that it can be brought out each year.

  6. Thankyou to all.
