Random bits and karma...

I have had a rummage through the random photos and findings that haven't made it to the blog over the last week or so, so bear with...

When we went ice-skating over half term, I think I forgot to mention it was held in a church to celebrate the Festival of Light, (a tenuous link I am probably missing - walking on water?), but as we were leaving, I spotted this beautiful creation...


All the crosses are made by different methods, appliqué, embroidery, some crochet, beading and all sorts.  Each square was about 3", I took the photo on my phone and promptly forgot about it, until now.

On Sunday, we accompanied dear Beaver son to a different church for the Remembrance Sunday service...


All the uniformed groups marched about half a mile to the church; the village had not seen anything like it for 18 years apparently; it was such a success, they are already talking about a marquee in the graveyard and a TV link for next year as there wasn't enough room in church for everyone!

Last night whilst flitting through blogs I spotted both Krista and Nova's gorgeous 2 Zip Hipsters.  I had, (note, had) this pattern on my imaginary list of 'wants' for ages, and so how brilliant when I remembered I had seen it at Michelle Patterns, and look, it was only $5 until 25th Nov.  I have it now!

 

Another bargain to partake of, if you haven't heard already, shipping is free to anywhere in the world from Spoonflower today - so be quick... a lovely yard of Heather Ross Underwater Sisters is heading my way ;)


If you need a laugh, this is the funniest post I have read in a long time; you've heard of Jake the Peg, well this is Jan the Jeg!

And finally, don't let my beady eye scare the children; an unsuccessful photo to show you my new hair!  You'll have to trust me that it is the cut I wanted.


Linking with Cindy and the Random Thursday folks xxx

  5. Had my heart set on some rapunzel but dd's piped up and said it had to be mermaids or nothing! So mermaids are swimming their way to us too :-)

  6. I am not sure I can visualize the hair from this little bit but it is a nice colour and those little crosses are lovely. I have that bag pattern, but am still in weekender recovery, I expect it will last for a while.

  7. Those crosses are amazing! Also enchanged with the ivy-colored turret. And you hair. And the fact that you apparently can yell quite loudly?

  13. I love the cross creation....I would also want to know what is behind it as it looks like a curtain to hide something :)
