Vintage sheet spring throw, Ta-Daah!

Like many of you, I've been collecting vintage sheet odds and ends for a while now... I always had a little patchwork throw in mind to showcase all the lovely purples and blues. But me being a bit lazy when it comes to sewing big projects, I just joined the patchwork top to a fleece blanket with some binding, all done by machine, no hand stitching here! I'm happy with the result, although don't look too close at the corners!
 The weather was warm today, Spring is in the air and what a perfect time to finish this floral beauty!

I love checking out other vintage sheet projects too, so please send me links if you have seen any cool creations lately ( or have you some of your own?)

New crafty supplies

Don't you just love getting new crafty bits and pieces! I have can't keep off the internet lately and as a result these lovelies arrived in the mail box today.

Pretty and pastel...I almost think I should just keep them in this frame!

 I think this is my favourite.

Oooohh, the ideas are flowing now!

Colour my world

There can never be too much colour in my life...Just saying!
Inspired once again by beautiful Attic 24, I began making a rainbow crochet bag....but as it grew I thought that I will probably never use it so it became a stool cover instead!

 The early stages.
 The finished product!
 Pretty colours.
A few 'issues' with my colour joining technique, but oh well it adds handmade character,right?
I've taken this colour obsession to a new level and behold...my new pink hair! It's just a bit of fun but I will be back to blonde soon I'd say :)

A rainbow filled life for me! xxxx
