I was walking past someones recycling bin yesterday and found this lovely Christmas sign poking out of it. Yes I'm afraid I'm one of those people! When walking past a skip, I stick my nose over the edge to see if there is something for nothing I could up-cycle. The things I have found would blow your mind, people are so wasteful.
The original colour was a dark depressing dirty red.
and here's after I piled on the gold paint and glitter, I think it looks quite good now.
Don't you just love the gold stuff.
Glitter Mas everyone!
Just have to decided where to put it now.

I'm doing well this week more new people. Hello Ukraine, Turkey and Italy, hope your having a nice day. It still amazes me how you can reach the world.
I wonder how many of these beautiful places I will get to visit. I hope all of them!

I've been plowing away at a new blanket for little fella this past week.
Sorry about the rushed photos, big man and little fella have just nipped out to the shop for some bread and milk, so I've only got a quick free 5 Min's haha. You know how family life is!
What a rumpled bed spread, you can tell I'm not a good home maker haha (lifes to short).
I didn't want a square afghan this time. Little man is getting a new bed soon so I wanted my blanket to fit the full length.
I first crocheted seven blue squares (just one round) then sewed them all together and hopefully that will give me the length.
I used a 3.75mm hook and double knit wool.
Now winter is finally here, I want to really crack on with my crafting. During summer time I just I can't be bothered, all I want to do is soak up the sun. I have build up tonnes of projects which are cluttering up the place, its terrible, time to get crafting.

Its taken some weeks but I finally had some time to myself the other day, so I decided to try out my new camera. Took these on the 1st of November at 4pm so the light was fading a bit, but it was a lovely bizarre warm evening so I took a nice hot coffee into the allotment and went clicking.
I love the paint layers and texture on this photo. I'm a bit weird and like that kind of thing.
Last of the blackberry's.
Its amazing how everything has changed from the last time I visited, all the produce has gone now and everyone is clearing their plot for winter to start afresh.
