My new home?

Does anyone else get carried away picturing what their new home will look like - style , furniture, decor - everything, way before they will even be living there.  We still have about 2 months until we move in, but I cant help looking for inspiration - these are a few gorgeous ideas that I have found...

I guess I have no patience!!

Folksy Friday

It's taken me a month, but finally I have learnt a new skill - crochet.  After many attempts I can now crochet a granny square which is actually square and doesn't come out round!!!! I am certainly not a master of this craft so I thought today I would show off some lovely crochet from the folksy world. These are my top crochet folksy finds.....( and something for me to aspire to! )

Crocheted Pincushion from Merry Berry and the Little Panda

Bright and Jazzy Crochet Doily from Girly Bunches

Crochet Lavender Hearts from Baban Cat

Organic Cotton Crochet Blanket, also from Baban Cat

Crochet Granny Bunting from Baggaley Cottage Crochet

PDF Crochet Pattern from Hand Knitted Things

Granny Square Crochet Cushion from Nutty Crafts

It was very difficult to choose this week as there are so many gorgeous things on Folksy, so I hope you enjoyed these few x

Folksy Friday

As I begin to prepare for our next adventure in life, moving from Leicestershire to Cumbria, I started thinking about keeping in touch with all the people we have met along the way.  It only seemed logical then that this weeks folksy friday theme should be based on 'ways of keeping in touch'.  I hope you like them x
