Today I have a Woolly Wow Moment to share with you! I finished my Cosy Stripe Blanket last week finally after starting it back in January! It has provided me with such a comforting hobby to do in my spare time during my last months of first year at uni! I loved building up the rows and watching the blanket get bigger and bigger! So here it is, my second Woolly Wow Moment:
So there you have it! My blanket finished and ready to go on my new uni house bed in Southampton! I know it will make the room look so homely and I can’t wait to use it in the colder months!
But as this project has come to end, I have to start another! I have to have something woolly on the go all the time and I couldn’t think of anything better than a new wreath! So with it being summer I thought I would make a summer wreath for my Mum to display in the dining room during the summer months and then she can use the winter one I made her for the winter months.
I’ve been gathering inspiration over the last few weeks starting when my parents came to visit me in Southampton on the first bank holiday of May. We took a trip to South Hayling, a lovely town right on the coast.
Summer is very much about holidays, ice cream and the beach, but I also want this wreath to be covered in flowers – overflowing with them! So nothing could inspire me more than the beautiful garden we visited today near Tetbury with my grandparents. The Hookhouse Pottery Garden is part of the National Garden Scheme. What made it perfect for us is that it is disabled friendly for my Gran and dog friendly for Benj!
The flowers were so pretty! And you can probably tell from these pictures I am a bit obsessed with forget-me-nots!
So I have started crocheting the different flowers and objects for my summer wreath! So far forget-me-nots, may roses, daisies, a strawberry, red admiral butterfly and the sun! A have a lot more to do, but it’s so lovely to start this new project!
I will keep you updated with how this project goes! I know this has been a jam-packed blog post today, but I have really enjoyed the last week and a bit since I finished my exams and I had a lot to share!
Hope you enjoyed your bank holiday Mondays, I know I did! Keep smiling, B x
