    Pompom Rugs

    I can’t remember when I originally started work on my first pompom rug, sometime last summer, but I’m afraid it got stuffed in a cupboard while I got on with other projects. I was determined to get it completed in March.

    My month has been bookend by work on 2 pompom rugs for my daughter, but I have managed to squeeze in a couple of other projects as well as a few classes.

    Caron Cake Triangular Scarf

    I was very aware that I hadn’t got round to working with a cake yarn despite admiring many other people’s projects so I picked a ball up in February with one of my yarn orders for the pompom rug.

    Decorative Plant Pots

    Painting plants pots has a mixed response on craft internet. The finished project can look great but it may not be the most long lasting of results. The nature of the clay is that it retains moisture which is good for plants but not for paint.

    January / February 2019

    I realised (about halfway through February) that one way to make sure I posted regularly would be to do a monthly update on projects. So following my tradition of good intentions not being followed through I’m starting with a 2 month post.
