Happy New Home

Some very good friends of ours have moved house,,,


Their new home looks a little like this!!


Its exciting finding out where things will reside inside, viewing familiar pictures and furniture in a different light and position!
Their garden is large, green and full of promise - they are looking forward to spotting what grows where and when!
As summer colours fade, and not knowing what is hibernating in their garden, I thought about adding some brightness in the form of consensual yarn storming! 

Using existing blooms and butterflies from other projects, 



hooking more flowers, a heart,
  and adapting a stray hexagon from the Christmas scarf made for someone in the same family...


....a jolly string was made.
It weighed in at 48g and  along with 8g of crocheted cotton bricks on the house card that's 56g busted.

Just after a rain shower on my first visit to my friends new home 
we chose a suitable tree and a couple of appropriate branches


which coincidentally can be seen from the kitchen window.
The next day my friend texted to say it catches the last of the sunlight in the evening!
Hoping they have many happy colourful times in their new family home!

This is a very special gift to give your friends ... especially when they'll have to wait till spring to see blooms in the garden. Cute idea Ali. Wendy x

That is a lovely gift! Cute house, too. Yes, I think moving can be a lovely thing as everything seems new in new surroundings. :) Best wishes, Tammy
