Despite it being barely above freezing here this morning, the sun is up in the sky, the birds are singing away and all is good in the world. Well that’s providing you don’t turn on the telly, computer or radio, refuse to open a newspaper and never venture outside. We can still dream though and there’s nothing like dreaming about shiny pretty things, or in my case mostly woolly or woolly related things.
As per usual, there are a good few things I’ve been coveting of late and it’s funny how the change in the seasons, brings about a change in your tastes. As the days grow longer, that stretch in the day really does begin to re-energise you after the darkness of Winter. I’ve definitely noticed my enthusiasm for getting involved, making and creating is increasing, with every extra minute of sunlight. I’m one of those annoyingly positive people anyway, my glass is always over half full and even on a bad day, it’s never half empty. So as we welcome in the Spring and eagerly await the clocks going forward on Sunday…..
These Are a Few of My Favourite Things for March.
- The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon Magazine from Mollie Makes. It costs £8.99, with £5 from the sale of every copy going to Comic Relief.
- Mini notebooks made by Yorkshire based artist Kate Bowles using traditional bookbinding methods.
- Triskelion Yarn in all of there beautiful green shades. The one pictured is their Hama 4ply in the Wodwos shade, but Nemeton is gorgeous and so is Frea too.
- Wonderwool takes place on the 22nd and 23rd of April at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells. It is a fantastic festival, with lots to see and do.
- Daisy Fields Fabric in Blue by Cotton + Fields, I spotted it on The Fabric Fox website. It’s a linen/cotton blend and would make the most gorgeous Summer top.
- Akerworks Flat Pack Bobbins, although I’m not sure which colour I prefer the most. Lacy, Lotus and Sunflower would be my favourite designs, but the Curvy Spokes is cute too.
- Corriedale top in Pazific Blues from Elfenwolle just look at those colours. I’m not even sure I’d want to spin it, it’s sooooo pretty.
Fingers crossed, my hubby has bought the Big Comic Relief Crafternoon Magazine for me.
