What a difference...

....a bit of sunshine and blue skies can make! Last Monday was cold, grey and damp, today, on the other hand, was a perfect laundry day. Crisp fresh air, vibrant blue skies and wall to wall sunshine all day long! We've not had a day like that round these parts for months - Spring is definitely in the air.
The Robster, as always, has been full of beans (happy beans I should add!). She spent a few happy hours yesterday trashing the lounge playing with balls and a tunnel:

It was wonderful to be able to photograph some finished sock toys today in natural light! I seem to be really enjoying the process of making these toys at the moment, rather than getting half way through and just wanting to finish already so that I can start the next one that I'm already planning!!! I acquired some new additions to sock mountain at the weekend, which unfortunately entailed a trip to Lakeside shopping centre, on a Saturday - yikes it was scary Mary! I am loving the ska checks and have some awesome hexagon patterned socks on order from Next that I cannot wait to get my hands on.... I never would have guessed that socks would inspire me so much! I wonder is there anything slightly oddball that gets your creative juices flowing? If I get enough answers I might just pick the weirdest to receive a wee little sock creation!

I love duct tape. Anything tape really, but especially duct tape which 7 or so years ago started me in the crafty world. and now I've taken a break for the most part to experiment in non-sticky things like felt, but duct tape and all the amazing colors will always be my first love :)
