Makeover Monday: 2/21

We've had such a nice taste of spring the last few days, that I thought I'd choose a bright fabric for today's makeover. Here's the ball all cut and ready to be crocheted; it's a floral print with pinks, lavender and turquoise on a tangerine background.
~*~Here's a closeup of how all the colors look blended together...

... and here's the whole big basket. She is 7" in diameter and almost 4" tall... a great size to bring a functional burst of warmth to any room of the house. Look for her in sosorosey soon!

Happy President's Day to you Americans out there! Are you having a holiday today? My hubby had to work, but Sophie did not have school today. This week I will be readying a big bunch of goodies for a trip to The Muse in Frederick in early March. I'm also looking forward to working on the edging for a special bath mat order. I have a very exciting possible wedding order in sosovintage that I should hear a final answer on soon- I'll share details on that if I get the job! What do you have happening in your neck of the woods this week?

Love those colours Jennie, and the shape..you're amazing :0)

We have half-term holiday from school this week. Today i've been getting our membership sorted out for a local swimming/leisure centre, and tomorrow we're going swimming !
I'm also busy getting things made for the craft fair...and Etsy.
I'm gonna be using up my old papercrafting stash too.

Have a great week Jennie, and happy Presidents Day to you too! :0)

We had some warm days last week too. I was finally able to throw open the windows and enjoy the fresh air streaming through. Back to a cold snap now. Brrrr.

Cute bowl, Jennie. I purchased a vintage blue daisy print pillow case the other day at a thrift shop. I need some good ideas before I cut into it!
