Three Things Thursday: 13 October 2016

As usual I’m joining with Emily of Nerd in the Brain (and others) for Three Things Thursday’. As she says…

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

This is UK Wool Week, so I’m celebrating things woolly…

First, I have finally finished the main blocks of my crochet flower cardigan and have begun on the flowers themselves. Currently there’s only one in place, but I do have a little basket of a couple of dozen flower centres:


One day I will have a cardigan

Second, I’m making progress on lining, stiffening and constructing a crochet bag that I made from left-over yarn from other projects. The sewing is taking way longer than the crochet did, but the end is in sight.


Eventually it will be a small woolly satchel

Third, I’m enjoying using yarn scraps to make little fair-isle mice. These are going to be displayed at Ludlow Library as part of a project by Loudwater Studio to create an Enchanted Winter Garden. Loudwater Studio is “a fantastic arts, crafts and sound recording studio for the whole community” in Ludlow. The project appealed especially because it’s in the library. Anyway, if you want to contribute too, follow the link above to see the details. The mouse pattern is by Janet McMahon on her blog Yellow Pink and Sparkly here. Oh, I’ve made a snowflake too!

So, those are three things making me smile this week – what about you?

  1. The mice are adorable and three cheers they are going to be Library mice!


  2. Love your little mice and can’t wait to see the flower cardigan! Three things that make me smile? I’m painting, painting, painting!! 🙂


  3. I’m grateful for a cool, dark bedroom (down and nearly out with another migraine), that I’m nearly finished with the trailer, and that this time next week, we’ll be on the road at the start of our holiday :-/


  4. I love the mice. They’re quite charming. I hope we get to see them in their new home.
