It's been lovely having an extra day off this week, with a bank holiday here in the Uk, more time to play!
I did pop to town on the Monday to check out the carnival procession.
We went for a mid week beach walk, where we saw pretty pastel, tranquil sunset skies.
Thank you to everyone's pompom advice last week, just one set it will be on the scrap yarn basket. I just need some goog light so I can take some decent pictures of the scrappy set.
My next basket is already underway, in fact the actual body is complete, but you'll be pleased to know that there is still an abundance of pompoms.
When i'd been plucking out different colours for the scrap baskets, I found a multi tone ball which I decided would be perfect for a basket all its own.
This one has been much quicker to work up without any colour changes, but to make it more interesting I thought i'd go all out with pompoms on this one!
So there's been plenty of wrapping, cutting, and fluffing!!
I am still continuing with the beast of the Mandala, slowly but surely i'm working my way round, but it sure is time consuming!
To give my wrists a bit of a break, I had a little play with my mini loom.
I had a go at the basics and some fringing.
Ideally I would love to have matching wall hangings to go with the baskets, but time will tell whether I can achieve this.
Can you believe we are already in September, and I've already had my first Christmas delivery at work :-( I don't like that the evenings are drawing in already, and that we are heading towards Autumn.
Here's a look back at August
