This has been inspired by something my friend Anna has made - but more on that another time!
Check out this amazing Amaryllis...
It lives on the TV unit, next to (you've guessed it...) the TV! (Hence the shadow to the left.)
It was from Ikea a couple of weeks ago. It shot up so quickly and now each stem has four flower heads - incredible! (According to the card thingy in the pot they're supposed to be red flowers, but we're not complaining!)
I received more sources of inspiration and instruction at Christmas. From my friend Anna this lovely book:
Sew Scandinavian - she's Swedish so obviously it had to be done! She also made me that lovely heart beside it, with lavender in the centre - thanks again Anna! Here is a glimpse at some of the gorgeous projects in the book...
Lots of prettiness!
My Mum and Dad gave me this book from my Christmas list...
There are some good ideas in this. Some of it isn't really my style/taste, but some of it is and there is a lot of inspiration...
I love this idea of the balloon being in a different hoop!
This is very cute! (I seem to be drawn to the toadstools in both books... I see toadstools in my future!)
Apologies for the dingy photos - decent light is a rarity this time of year.
Thanks for the great comments on my last post, much appreciated as always! Puts a smile on my face!
