Today i'm celebrating, and giving thanks to everyone in this wonderful crafting and blogging community who has been so incredibly supportive of me, and my twoandsix blog this week. The response I received to pea green has been overwhelming, and I was thrilled to have it mentioned on some amazing sites. Ziggy's hat pattern showed up on Craftzine, and then made an appearance on One Pretty Thing. Both of these sites showcase some amazing talent and craft and I was honored to be included amongst them. Then sweet Amanda from Soule Mama included a link from her blog to mine! Happy, happy!!! Then when people started visiting via a link from WhipUp i discovered that the gorgeously talented Kirsty from kootoyoo had whispered in someones ear over there. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!
As well as doing a little knitting, i've been making buntings this week. I adore them, and started making them after my first son was born (have I mentioned that he's almost eighteen??? They really do grow up too fast). They've remained a favorite over the years - a bunting always makes it feel like spring!
I'm [currently in love] with vintage paper and books, so it seemed perfectly reasonable to create some buntings using the beautiful pages from a novel printed in 1948 (for me), and pages from a 1970's Atlas (for my 10 year old son, BJ). I'm thrilled with the result - threaded onto cotton twine, they sway gently in the breeze and make me smile every time I walk past them.
So, as part of my celebrations i've made two extra to giveaway - one novel and one atlas. For those who would like their own paper bunting, please leave a comment here by the end of Sunday, 19 July - telling me what you're [currently in love] with, along with your preference (novel or atlas).
And now my baby is awake. It's time to finish the 'Thomas the Tank Engine' jigsaw puzzle we started before his nap.
