my creative space

My crafty Wednesday friends spotted this gorgeous fella...cute recycling isn't it!

I want to find time to make things to just place about the streets, don't you?
I am working from one extreme to the other in crochet...
small brooches at home ready for tommorow night(Avid Market)...

And huge crochet with a size 10 hook and tripled 8 ply yarn. This is a motif for the yarn bombing project the close knit group and I are working on...such fun.

By the way that milk bottle behind the crochet is not off milk, but ginger beer.
Utterly disappointing sickly sweet and only slightly fizzy ginger beer at that.
I will ring my mum tonight and get her recipe and tips
(which I should have done in the first place!


P.S- When my son saw the pale yellow bottles of ginger beer stored for brewing,
he rushed to me and proudly declared,

'I know what you have got in them!'
'Really? Tell me...'
'Cats wee for your garden!'
...if I ever thought I might sometimes come across as a eco loon to my kids
there's my proof...I haven't laughed so hard in a while!

Hehe, cute alright, i'd like to pretty up our streets with cool stuff too. And how cute is your boy? love how kids just come right on out with whatever they're thinking.

I can understand his thought process because I did get him to do his wee onto the lemon tree when he was toilet training and we were in the garden, don't know how he thought I was bottling our cats wee, I can assure you I never will!

Kids are so funny aren't they.

Love your street art plan & will look forward to pics.

He's so fab... I love the idea of secretly creating art in the street. Making something like this little man is perfect. You've really got me thinking...!

That's hilarious! Cat's wee! I've never tried that on my garden, maybe why I can't grow a thing!!! What a cutie... bet you couldn't make him drink it!
That massive doily is awesome!
