Firstly, here is the video of me putting up the wall decals earlier in the week, as promised. I've never used iMovie before (as you can probably tell) and its a bit jumpy as the camera obviously wasn't on a sturdy enough surface but it's just a bit of fun. I'm not claiming to be Peter Jackson!
Secondly, I have finally finished the project that was keeping my hands busy while I wasn't working on the nursery or some other project. It's taken a while as I've often put it down in favour of a quicker piece of work but a project like this is nice to have going on 'in the back ground' to fall back to when hands need to be kept busy. I picked up the yarn for the main part of the blanket to keep me occupied while I was back home for a week in late February. It is simply a granny square in 2 colours which I kept at until I ran out of yarn. I'd slightly underestimated the amount I needed as I had intended the border to be in the darker green from the middle but there wasn't enough so I picked up a complementing green for the scalloped edge. As it's a slightly thicker and softer yarn, it worked out well as it gives a cosy soft edge but the main bulk of the blanket will be nice and light for summer.
And finally I just wanted to post a picture of the jar of buttons I picked up from Libertys this week. I could have spent hours (and a small fortune) in the haberdashery department but I restrained myself, I really have no need for any more fabric or yarn just now! But I couldn't resist the jewel like colours of this collection. I have no idea what I am going to make with them, they could get used piece meal on various projects or I might make a button necklace from them. If anyone else has any project ideas fot them then please let me know.
