Attractive Handmade Decorations for the Home

Injections of colour

Phew, end of another week, pretty much half way through January already!

Fed up with drab and dull – synonymous with this time of year, I thought I would brighten up the end of the week with a few cheery photo’s.

In between 1 school pick up and another, I popped to Hobbycraft to pick up some needed supplies.  It was lovely to see the shelves full of Easter related products (I know it’s a while off, but it’s colour after all!).  For £1.99 I couldn’t resist this little felt basket.

Due to my increased love for crochet (having finally got somewhere with it), I treated myself to a few balls of cheery wool.  Nothing beats that, don’t you think?

My crochet is slowly developing – riddled with mistakes, but who cares!

Fabric – I bought this stash in the sale – a pair of patchwork curtains beckons, after all, it’s almost a year since I made my patchwork door curtain! which you can see here.  Still living with the stress of making that one, I thought I’d go for a simple square design rather than multiple triangles.  I don’t think hubby is impressed that the fabric involves flowers and the colour pink…….

Try and have a ‘colourful’ weekend!


  • The felt basket is adorable – I can just see it with a choc bunny inside! And your wool colours match it. Pretty cottons too. You’re going to be busy! Have a good weekend :)

  • Love that cute felt pot! That toadstool draws me in!

    That’s the fun with crochet I think, you learn as you go along. Love that green wool you have there. And those fabrics are definately yummy!

    Hope you have a great weekend.

    Beautiful fabrics, I wouldn’t mind having a go at making patchwork curtains for my bathroom, I have plenty of pretty thrifted cotton bedsheets.

    Pretty crochet squares, I didn’t realise how addictive crochet can be.

    I think that basket is the sweetest thing I’ve seen in an age!x

  • Sarah, your crocheted squares are looking great. Oooooh, patchwork. I’m desparate to try some. I’d never seen your patchwork door curtain and I’ve just had a look at it. It’s awe-inspiring!

    I also love your new header. The heart garland is gorgeous and an idea I want to steal! When you’ve got a moment, could you let me know how you made it? Is it fabric? Would love to know.

    Have a wonderful w/end.

    You are right, there is something rather special about buying yarn – I once dreamt I was in a wool shop choosing some!
