I tend to gather all the bits together before colouring an image - although this one is a LOTV Cute Square. But, I had to abandon any thoughts of crafting and run off to plant these up to hang on the wall beside our front door:
The little garden tea light holder/lantern came from Ikea and it's really sweet in the late evenings. We've had the wall pots for donkeys years - bought from a pottery in Yorkshire. My next outside job is to give the wrought iron garden furniture a good old clean and a fresh coat of dark green Hammerite. Of course I like the hammered effect one which is a long and messy 'do it by hand' task rather than using a spray. I usually end up with as much on me as anywhere else! This is one of the tubs I planted up about a week ago - settled in nicely and growing at a rate of knots already:
I don't go for slightly quirky garden ornaments but this Meerkat is soooo cute. Morrisons had them in last year and they sold out in double quick time. I spotted they had them again last week and just had to give one a home :) He's now called Sergei and his little lantern is solar powered so it glows at night. The buttercups in the lawn are deliberate - my beloved hates cutting them down and the bees just love them.
So, my craft room is a bit neglected at the moment. But, if you want to have a good nosy at what everyone else is up to - go to Julia's here!
And, it isn't long until WOYWW PiF next week. I'm still not sure if I'll be able to join in - a lot going on here over the next couple of weeks but I might just find some time as it sounds a lot of fun and I'm already working on something. I'm over the fretting if it's good enough, Julia's words are right, if it's made to please then it's always good enough. My problem is I might end up sending the remainder of the crafty bits and a little note saying, 'here y'are - finish it off now'!!
Have a happy WOYWW - I'll try to hop round later, with a bit of luck and a following wind.
Thursday edit: I'm finding that I can't leave comments on a few blogs - can't work out a common thread so I gave up yesterday as you don't find out until you've gone right through the process and are trying to publish your comment.Time to try again today!
