Mollie Makes Strikes Again

It's been another wedding heavy couple of weeks. Five in two weeks this time. For those of you who commented last time about my active social life, I wish! These were all work weddings. If you want to see pictures they are in the other blog. I've been so busy I just realised I spent all July with my calendar still set to June. No wonder I could never figure out what day of the week it was!
I promised carnival pictures in my last post so here is a snap of the girls ready for the parade

And here is some yarn bombing that appeared in the park, and about which which I don't know anything at all. Not me. Nope. Not a thing...

I did find a little bit of time for crafting last week though when Mollie Makes plopped through the door and I immediately fell in love with the adorable little cuddly felt cacti.

To give an idea of scale the little pots are just over an inch tall. The pale green one is made exactly as given in the magazine, but I added a flower to the darker one (flower made the same way as I described in this post)
I thought you might want to see what Naomi has been busy doing too. She bought herself a Doctor Who t-shirt on Evilbay.

It was described as a "small", but when it arrived it was a medium, and a man's medium at that. It drowned her. So following a tutorial she found online, she converted it into this loose racer back top.

Complete with funky wired back detail.

Such colourful yarn bombing and must have been a lovely surprise. I've still got my Mollie Makes kit to make up (well actually I've got lots of them!). Naomi did a fantastic job of redesigning the Dr Who t-shirt.

Great pictures of your girls, or should I say young women now?
Love the yarn bombing too. And the cute cacti.

Lovely pictures..The Dr who teeshirt is a work of genious..gorgeous. Love the craftiness but the teeshirt is amazing. I don't think I would be brave enough to try!

Wonderful yarn bombing in the park, well done.
The girls look beautiful ready for the carnival.
Great change to the tshirt- she's a clever girl like her mum!

Colourful yarn bombing. I hadn't heard of it before.
A great idea for redesigning the T-shirt. It worked well.
