A bit dotty

I'm fed up with all the dreary weather and I'm ready for some pretty colours - so here are my latest ones. A long process making the dots but I do find them and the pastel shades cheerful and am making lots of different dotty things.

To go with cheerful dots are cheerful daisies too, on a nice spring green background.

I'm all set for tea in the garden - how many weeks do you reckon we'll have to wait for that? I've got my little round table out on the lawn ready - (how dotty is that?! Good to be optimistic though.)

It's been a busy week of trying to felt here - as you know Archie is a tremendous help to me and greatly enhances the whole experience. He does truly love sewing too and likes chewing all types of thread. A couple of afternoons I've just given up trying to do anything creative and have played with Archie and waited for my boys to come home instead- as soon as the first one has walked through the door I've just presented them with a kitten and run off back to the kitchen to try and get on!

  1. I particularly like the daisies on the green--my whole house is decorated in shades of soft, buttery yellows and greens (yellowy greens, not blue greens). I think I'm so enamoured of yellows and greens (and daisies too!) because my room when I was a child was in those shades, with daisy curtains. That and those colours reflect Spring, which is my favourite season. :-)

  2. I just went back & looked at Archie's photos. He is so so adorable. I think you need to get him a baby brother or sister to play with. Then you could get more done ...

  3. Yes, your kitten looks like he is a great help! :-) I love the daisies... as you can probably tell from my blog name. Are you making a hat, or a tea cozy??

  4. I love the daisies, and the polka dots remind me of a china teaset my aunty always got out for special occasions ... a special memory. Just adore Archie, and I'm sure you could never get cross with him for wanting to help.

  8. Thank you all for your comments - some responses in one comment from me!:
    I love Archie more than felt too!! And no I can't get cross with him for helping because he's SO sweet and affectionate. We did try and bring home one of his real brothers or sisters but he was the last kitty left, and I've never before had good experiences of introducing another one to an existing one, but you never know, we might be able to find the right one - and yes it would give him someone else to play with, or perhaps they would both play with the felt together, it could be even more chaotic!
    It's a tea-cosy with the flowers on - don't think I'll ever graduate to hats - they look very complex to me! As I've also made some dotty tea cosies I looked out for some dotty china recently but can't find any just right so I have plans to paint my own - I'd really like a tea-set but need space to keep it in, time to clear out another cupboard perhaps.....
