...and I've been busy renovating.
I'm having air conditioning installed and I've had a blind put into my spare room. The spare room houses all of my crafting supplies which have been, um, a little disorganised (actually, one of my sisters calls my spare room "the hell hole") so I've spent a lot of time tidying it up ('cause if I hadn't the blinds installer wouldn't have been able to get to the window) and it now looks wonderfully ordered. I'm going to try really, really, really hard to keep it that way.
The air conditioning installation is turning into a drama, but I'm telling myself that it's only to be expected ~ that renovations and frustration go hand in hand, and that I'm not going to let it get in way of having a good break.
Of course, I've managed to fit some crafting in between the tidying.
My fan scarf is getting longer:
I've made a pentagon washcloth for a friend's birthday,
using a free pattern from Drew Emborsky:
and I've started crocheting a floral neck warmer from Hook and Needle Designs:
I'm using a silk wool blend, Cleckheaton Silk, which is lovely and soft.
I've been op~shopping too and adding to my button collection:
I like the texture of these small white ones:
...and I've been quietly waiting for a Wanderer butterfly to emerge, from this pupa that a friend at work gave to me:
You can't really tell from the photograph, but wings are visible from the casing now which means that the butterfly is almost ready to make its entrance into the world. I love the delicacy and the wonder of these little creatures.
Wishing all of you moments of wonder too.
