A New Find

Whilst shopping yesterday, I came across the launch issue of a new magazine called "Simply Homemade".
There is a little bit of everything in here; knitting, sewing, stencilling, card making, baking, furniture restoration, soap making... the list is endless.

There are 3 very lovely bags to be made and lots of ideas, templates, and a few free gifts too. I would definitely recommend this one. It has a lovely pattern for an adult and child's apron, typical after I've just bought a new one!

I did get that felt bowl finished last night. Hooray! A few nights ago I added some texture using some wool from my stash.

 So last night I wanted to add some colour. I liked the looseness of the style and wanted to continue that way but this does rub against the grain a little for me! I tried a couple of different things before settling on using this...

Colour with a bit of sparkle!

It worked beautifully against the dark felt of the bowl.

For my first attempt at a felt vessel I'm really pleased with the result and itching to try another one!
The sun has peeped out from behind the clouds this morning and I can see some blue sky so some fresh air will be had by all today! Hope you get some sun wherever you are. ; )

  1. I'm pleased you found time to finish your bowl, Becky! It looks very pretty: did you needle felt the wool decorations or stitch them on?

  2. What a lovely blog you have...I am so loving all those books. Your bowl is amazing! xo

  3. Wow Becky, what a beautiful bowl...I love the swirly greens - they look so 'fluid' and the sparkly pink really sets it off....hope you are able to create another one soon.

  4. This is sooooooo nice. I love it.


I love reading your comments! Thanks for taking the time to read my post and leave a message.
