Ribbons at the Festival of Speed

Oooh my legs ache this morning
Tony and I had a little treat yesterday.

We went to Goodwood for the Festival of Speed.


It was totally amazing, but an awful lot of walking – hence the aching legs.

But amongst all the fabulous cars, I managed to find ribbon!
I did….


………hanging around the Champagne tent.
It was far too hot to sample the pleasure of the tent but I did enjoy seeing the ribbons.

We have some speedy ribbons up for grabs as this weeks Friday FREEBIE just click here to join in.

Have a great weekend.

Dotty flowers

say helo to wednesday 405

How are you all this fine morning?
I have been up early, sat in the garden enjoying my latest creation.

hello wed cushion

I used our wicked dotty buttons in 3 sizes.
You can find them all here

These are not any ordinary crochet flowers – I set myself a mission…………………
…..….to teach myself to crochet left handed.
I was hoping it would put less strain on my damaged thumb.

According to Tony I sat with my tongue hanging out, deep in concentration.


My first left handed flower – I was super pleased, but sadly did not reduce the stress on my thumb.
So I have hung up my crochet hook for a while   Sad smile
