Just the other day the lovely Amy posted about one of her beautiful fabric cuffs that she custom made for herself. Nothing unusual there, but it got me thinking that I have yet to make a custom version of one of my own designs for myself!
Really, I don't have a granny cushion of my own, or forever flower garland. I do have one potholder, but she did spend a wee while in the shop before I realised that I should keep at least one from my original collection as a memento. She is now working hard as a lovely (tea-stained!) trivet for my teapot and I do keep promising to make some friends for her, but those promises have come to nothing as yet and she is still lonely.
So, as I mentioned to Amy on her post the other day, I have been making more such promises to myself about a custom forever flower garland. The problem being that I can't settle on a colour theme I want to go with. I had thought a super long all red version such as Miss Doris would be quite lovely, then when I made the multi coloured petite ones I thought one of those would be even better. But today I'm looking at these lovely salmon pinks and vintage greens, with a hint of mustard and indigo, and thinking these would also look wonderful! I'm also thinking that a garland in these colours would look mighty spiffy next to this lovely bunting that I ordered a few days ago.
Is it wrong to be wishing for more soggy weather, just so I can spend a cosy evening in crocheting something lovely for myself!? I think it probably is considering how much I am going complain about the chilly weather over the coming months!
A fabulous weekend to you all,
