"Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on. "I do," Alice hastily replied, "at least - at least I mean what I say - that's the same thing, you know."
I found this stunning print by deebeale on Folksy! I have a thing about hares and have several prints around my house. Not sure why I like them so much, but there you are.
It is a frabjous day here in Yorkshire. I spent a little time earlier sitting in a very sunny, very breezy, slightly cool garden. I didn't mind the breeze or the low temperature as it was so nice to feel some sun on my skin....wonderful!
I made some grannies for Hawthorn's project - making blankets for those in Japan who have lost everything. Five done so far....
If you think you can help this project, then please visit 11am and Hawthorn will send you details of where to send your squares. If you can't crochet, then knitted squares are fine too. Really, even just a couple would make a difference.
And I had a little look through a copy of Country Homes magazine and saw this spread...
...crocheted tables....knitted lamp shades.....felted cushions...in fact, all manner of crafty loveliness. I am not a regular reader of magazines but it did make me happy to see all of this stuff. Of course, we crafty ladies have always known the beauty of crafty things.
But the best part of today so far has been getting this award from the lovely Claire of no knitted knickers!.....
Thank you Claire. I am very happy to receive this and really appreciate the sentiments behind it. It is wonderful to know that out there in the blogosphere there are people who like this tiny little corner of the virtual world!
Now I have to nominate blogs I like with under 100 followers. This is the tricky bit as all the blogs I admire and visit regularly are listed below. But, in the spirit of the award.....(and in no particular order).....
The Villa Vanilla - lots of beautiful children, home made bread and yarny things...lovely
Andamento - rural gorgeousness
Little Tin Bird- scrummy yarny-ness in Heatherland
East of Eden - a lovely, cosy crochet corner
11am - not only lovely things but very funny too
I know some of you don't like the whole award culture, but I think it is a lovely way to be introduced to great new places to visit. And we all know that we have lots of favourites and that the real 'award' is in supporting them.
Enjoy the rest of your week! xxx
PS Thank you so much for all the lovely, lovely comments about my blanket and also the little felt elephant (he has already found a home)! x
