Awards and creations

Thanks to pinkfluffywarrior for my blog award my first one which is great. Now I have to pass it on to five other blogs. I choose...
1.Clever Cheshire Cats
2.Curlew Country
3.Tales from Cuckoo Land
4.Teawagon tales
5.Little Cotton Rabbits

If you choose to accept the award please pass them on to five other blogs. Obviously if you don't want to take part don't worry, its not compulsory just a bit of fun. Just paste the award on your blog and invite five other blogs to do the same.

 I saw this beautiful peacock at the easter barn I visited at the weekend, isn't his tail gorgeous, amazing things exist in nature don't they. I was looking for some pretty gingham ribbon and a twiggy heart to hang on my office door when its eventually finished. I found both and will show you when I use them.

If you pop over to Julia Crossland's blog you will see she has started  'Being creative'. I have signed up and our theme this month is 'garden'. The point being that we make time during the month to do something creative, perhaps in a medium we haven't used for a while or something totally different, setting aside time to create. I haven't done anything yet and I know I am running out of time but I am sure I will be able to do something and there aren't any strict rules so I won't have to sit in the corner with the dunces hat on.

I succumb to some wool buying this week I couldn't resist these Amy Butler colours. I don't have a project in mind yet so they we stay in my basket until I think of something. I just loooovveee them they are so soft and colourful.
Little OB's teddy bear is finished, I put him in his cot and hoped he would find him in the morning and love him. So here is my teddy bear Ta dah moment. At the moment he is the nameless crochet bear.Just chilling out on the settee.

Bye for now,

Wow! An award! Ah thanks so much, I've not had an award before, it feels great. I have seen awards pop up all over blogland but didn't think I'd ever get one, intact wasn't even sure if I'd join in if I did get one. But I like it and I'm going to join in whole heartedly. Thank you again.

Love your bear, I'm sure OB will too. X

Hi Sara, your teddy bear turned out great and I too have a little one that doesn't like stuffed animals. I think that this would be something he would like, could you share with me the title of the book where the pattern can be found so that I too can make one. Thanks Lika G.

Hi Lika, the pattern came from cute & easy crochet by Nicki Trench. I met here today at the country living fair. isbn 9781907563065

Hi Sarah, what a nice little visit I've had here. I adore your little teddy! Have a lovely day :-) Josie

Hi Sarah, your blog is just lovely! And your wool makes me squee in a very silly way. There's nothing quite as lovely as a basket full of wool - all full of potential! x

Hi Sarah and thanks so much for the blog award, sorry I've not come by to say thanks sooner. I'm glad to see you've succumbed to the Amy Butler yarn - it's rather lovely isn't it? Hope you enjoy using it x
