first day of march and the switch was flicked suddenly its autumn
one week its sweltering the next one its chill chillery as
'not yet!' we all say surely there be more days of summer to come
perhaps there are more sunshiney days stowed away... oh how i hope!
but this sudden change does make you think about cosy warm layers and hot cups of tea
i have been on a mission to create the ideal beanie! which of course means it must have a pompom on top and a psychedelic feather on the side.
after much sampling i think i have mastered it... just to be sure i have been wearing one myself for how can i be sure if i haven't put it to the test! and I pretty much haven't taken it off to be honest
ooh how i have been enjoying making pompoms too! what a wonderful process it is a little time consuming but oh so rewarding it's the finishing touch! the icing on the cake! i just love it in case you can't tell.
they will be for sale soon so if you wish to know i will keep you updated on when/where they are available via facebook
I would like to thank the beautiful creatures who modeled them for me. You 2 are brilliant!
oh dear folk i must apologize for my lack of presence.
just thought I'd share a special headdress I made on a summer holiday
i became inspired by the idea of a lion mane
of a rainbow lion that wandered about the bush listening to beautiful sounds and dancing and as it danced a whirlwind of wondrous colour painted many rainbows amongst the landscape from its magical mane
a mane of vibrant, colourful knitting and yarn intertwined
and here is the result it became somewhat tribal looking whilst still remaining mane-like
so perhaps this mane adorns the head of the tribe whom does worship this mystical lion
thanks to my lovely friend Emma for being my model and lending me her camera for these shots
