ScrapHappy March 2022

I’ve been so busy this month that there hasn’t been much time to write, but some of the busy time has been spent making scrappy things. I’ve been crocheting more flowers for wreaths and garlands to decorate the shop, but none of these have actually been transformed into a finished object yet. All the yarn is scraps left over from other projects and where stuffing is required, I’ve used tiny yarn ends.

Away from the shop, poor Sammy has been feeling the cold a bit overnight, so I have managed to find time to knit a woolly coat for him out of yarn left over from a jumper I knitted for myself quite a few years ago. Becuase I changed my mind about the pattern for my jumper, I ended up with rather a lot of left-over yarn – enough to make a very snuggly coat for a chilly hound!

Next month there should be lots of finished stuff to share!

I’ve been inspired to write this (and future) ScrapHappy posts by Kate,  Tall Tales from Chiconia. On the fifteenth of every month lots of folk often publish a ScrapHappy post, do check them out:

If you fancy joining, contact Kate and she’ll add you to the list. It would be lovely to see more non-sewing posts, but any use of scraps is welcome.

  2. What a handsome dog he is in his blue coat! I hope you still have that jumper so you can go out as a matching pair… Like Jill, I’m eagerly anticipating those wreaths you’re slogging away at!

    • I actually need to alter my jumper as it’s got a bit saggy, but there’s no time at the moment. It will get done once I have a shop to sit in and show off my skills! I’ve just started stitching leaves and flowers and strawberries onto a garland to decorate the counter (which is a marvel of ScrapHappiness).

  4. Your dog makes a good fashion model – he looks very snug in his new jumper. Those crotchet flowers are so lovely. I can’t crotchet and admire anyone who can. I had wanted to do some little crotched flowered headbands for the tiny bridesmaids at my daughter’s wedding but sadly I had no one to teach me and couldn’t get the hang of it from a book.

    Great to see you’ve started the Spring with such a wonderful burst of industrious energy! Those ox-eye daises (?) look fabulous already & I’m guessing you may have a gorgeous sunflower to show off soon. Can’t wait to see how the shop turns out. V excited for you. x

    I am looking forward to seeing the shop transformed from the sorry state it was in when you bought it to a wonderland of cheerful scrappiness!
