Today is a very gloomy, grey day! It's cloudy, raining and freezing cold.
I needed to do some craft, but didn't feel like doing any of the projects that I have on the go. So this is what I ended up doing.
It's a felty! A dahlia. I just needed something bright and cheerful, and something that I knew I could finish. I guess I needed a sense of accomplishment.
A friend gave me the kit, so I didn't choose the colours, but I love it anyway. You don't quite get just how bright it is from this photo.
I've got 2 others that I will do at some stage. One is a sparrow, the other and owl.
So, I should probably also update you on what else I'm doing. My crochet rug is coming along well. I've now finished the first 2 rounds of maroon and started on the first ball of purple. I love the way the maroon just breaks things up and adds a bit of brightness between the blue and purple. And 1 round just wasn't enough. It needed 2.
I've also been making some cards.
Here are a couple of them.
