Hello......... It's been quite some time since I joined in with Amy's Five on a Friday link up, so today I thought I'd do a bit of a catch up post of Summerhouse happening.
Here at the Summerhouse lately we have had some wonderful sun rises and sunsets, but which is which? this one was amazing a beautiful pink sky with a double rainbow, just wow.
This time of years seems to produce the most beautiful skies, maybe it's a pay off to balance out the shorter darker days.
As crafters we seem to have to start thinking about Christmas earlier than most people, in fact our craft club library group is in a bit of a panic at the moment after being asked with very short notice to make enough handmade decorations for the Library's eight foot tree which is going up at the end of the month eek.
The decorations have to be handmade and not too expensive in case any of them should go walkies off the tree, so I just couldn't resist making some cupcake case angels to hang on the tree.
I've also had a bit of a epic craft fail, for some reason I know not why I decided to pick up my long forgot knitting last week and well it all went horribly wrong. You see there was a reason I stopped knitting when I discovered crochet, I'm just no good at it.
Just a couple of rows in I'd mess it up and I just can't get my head around picking up stitches, so that was that I had to frog the lot, I ripped it all out but not to worry, I have plans already for the yarn instead of this lovely leaf cushion, I'm going to crochet one, as I just love the concept and the yarn colours but lets face it I just can't knit.......
So back to happier yarniness it was time to put the decorations back up for Halloween, you see I can't do basic knitting but I can crochet a sparkly skull!!
I was also pleased to see that the salt dough decorations we made last year, had also survive, you can read a bit more about these makes here and here.
So one more thing to go until we have five. So I thought I'd share some pictures of my crystals, each week I select some Crystal to work with, mostly because they are lovely to have around, they make me happy, they are just so beautiful, mother nature never fails to amaze and I love to learn about them.
Well that my five, wishing you a wonderful weekend
