How to Successfully Create a Blog Post Full of Random Things.

The title is a lie. I have no idea. I’m just going to share photographs that have no business being in a blog post of their own.

plastic elk

I don’t know where I’d been but I arrived in the hallway a few days ago to find a load of plastic animals everywhere. They looked kind of good, so I took pictures.

lining up

I bought them from a charity shop last Saturday, all bundled up in a plastic bag . They were placed all the way to the top of the stairs.

block colour crochet ripple

In a break from making lots of small things for next weekend’s school summer fete, I’ve been making yet another crochet blanket. A crochet ripple blanket, to be precise. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it as I’ve not experimented with block colours before. I can’t remember why I chose the colours I did. I think it’s a mix of trying to be cheerfully bright and trying to use what stash is still hiding in the cupboard under the stairs.

felt butterflies and stuff

Speaking of school fete stuff… I’ve been making butterflies. I’m not sure how these will turn out once they’ve been stitched together. I don’t think they’ll be terrible but again, I’m veering away from my comfort zone.

I got a positive response over on Instagram from one kitty I made, so I decided to make a few more.

I’ve had help too. He needs more training.

And I think I’ve mentioned a couple of times before about a “spider” who became trapped inside my little camera. This is the sort of thing that Husband seems to think is unacceptable. Whilst it was annoying that a smudgy, leggy looking blob kept interfering with my snap shots, I had sort of become accustomed to the idea of an eight legged friend living on the lens.

One YouTube video later and the screw drivers were out. I don’t think I know anyone else who would take the time to attempt such operations.

And yeah, it wasn’t a spider at all. I am gutted. A friend had even advised I name him. He became known as Roger. I shall mourn him. Roger the miniscule speck of dust. 😦

    Awww, shame about Roger… he really was an excellent companion during your trip around the handmade fair a few weeks back! And I think I had those same plastic animals when I was a kid… although I never placed mine so artistically. Good luck with the school fair too πŸ˜€
