Hello peeps, not much going on on my desk this week, I have
been feeling yucky all week so tidied up my desk ready for action.
I have been You Tubeing, and watching all sorts of tutorials, 
one on crochet flowers,so on my desk there are a few crochet flowers
I made, and also a wooly 'thing' lol. I am just following a tutorial for a
more elaborate crochet flower, but I need to buy some decent
thread really. On Saturday I popped in to Lilli of the Valley's open
weekend,I would have liked to have taken one of Bev Rochesters
workshops but I thought I would be in Scotland on those dates so
I didn't book a place. Silly me !
Any way as you can see I bought two stamps from the new release,
'Yee Haa' and the Vintage labels sentiments.
I also bought a couple of raffle tickets,and 'guess what'................
I didn't win lol.

  2. Hi Lottie,

    Oh, drats, too bad you didn't win the drawing. Your crochet flowers look very sweet. I'm determined to learn how to crochet as I love granny squares.

    I got Tulip when she was only 8 weeks old - so she's a baby. She takes baths in her water bowl too, but just a few times she's taken a bath outside her cage. She is such a character. I'm sure your african grey is a wonderful companion!

    Thanks for visiting me.

  3. Hope you're feeling better soon. Love the pretty flowers - thanks for sharing (Hazel, WOYWW #95) x

  4. I hope you feel better soon. I often watch YouTube tuts when I'm poorly, too. Somehow it makes me think I am doing something crafty related and not losing valuable crafting time lol ;). Happy WOYWW!

  5. Ps. Yes, that's an altered spice rack :)

    1. ha ha, it was only when I dragged my husband in to show him and tell him "I want you to make me something like that" that he said "it looks like a spice rack to me" that I thought "yes it does".
      You have made it look very pretty and of course it stores and displays your inks beautifully.x

  6. What a shame you'll feeling yucky ~ I hope you're on the mend soon Lottie.
    The flowers surely make you feel better? They beautiful.
    You've given me food for thought with the youtube tutorials...I never thought about that ~ what a numpty.
    Heaven knows when I'd fit it in though ;D
    Thanks for letting me take a peek. Neesie #45

  15. re: your comment, I used alcohol inks on the tiles, let them dry and then stamped the butterflies and flowers. Youtube Adirondack Alcohol Inks...

  17. Oh very nice crochet flowers, which tutorial did you use to make them? Looks like you have been in the creative mood regardless of your health.

  18. Your flower thingy is lovely as are your crochet flowers. You must try and book Bev for another date, her classes are amazing. Like those LOTV stamps, hoping to get some at the weekend. Thanks for your visit. Anne #2

  19. Gorgeous crochet flowers.. What would we do without u tube... Love it.. Hugs May x x x#31

  20. I love your flowers. Hope you are feeling better!

  21. You are a patient gal, learning to crochet the flowers before embarking on some ambitious I would have! And then ruined it! Like the look of your new stamps, those vintage labels look need-able!!!
