Its amazing where inspiration pops up! 
Whilst creating spirals in wool I found these beauties in the kitchen!

My family gave me very strange looks when I whipped out the camera during dinner preparation - on two separate days!

More inspiration can be found over on Jacqui's blog Living with Ethel...
she currently has  a vintage inspirational  giveaway to celebrate her first bloggy birthday.
The linen covered book she is offering is packed full of ideas and instructions for lots of  exciting craft projects.

Ethel is a really glamorous character - she models Jacqui's creations so well.

I would like to introduce you to Lulu, today she is modelling the Crazy Randomness Easter bonnet!

I think she may be a little older than Ethel...Lulu is in her late forties!

...and has had some reconstructive work on her smile in the past...the bonnet is covering her thinning but still auburn hair!

Happy Spring!

Nature is great for inspiration, I'm always doodling ideas, it's a shame I'm not good enough to figure out what I meant when I rediscover the doodles months later :)
Romanesco brassicas are the ultimate spiral/fractal veg.

I think youll be seeing spirals everywhere you look now. Im guessing Lulu is your doll from yesteryear....she suits the bonnet. Wish I had something to model my knits.....I usually just use a coat hanger! Happy spring to you too.
