New Yarn...I couldn't resist 

As last year came to an end, I made a little promise with myself to finish off projects before starting new ones.........that hasn't lasted too long! OOOOOOPS!!
Throughout January I've been working ferociously on a project. A bright and colourful project, made with the yummy yarn that Dennis gave to me as a present for Christmas.


So far it's a mountain of glorious granny squares! I've been very good at sewing in the ends as I go along, something I'm not usually very good at!


It's coming on nicely but I do find that things can get a little boring when working on a project of this scale.
I've decided to break the sometimes monotonous cycle of granny squares. A couple of side line projects to keep my hunger for new creativeness well and truly satisfied.
At the weekend I went into the craft store with a gift voucher I had also received for Christmas. I spent it entirely on new yarn!!!!! BRIGHT, SOFT and UTTERLY GORGEOUS!!!!


I saw these delightfully bright shades of Wolle Rodel's Baby wool. I couldn't resist buying a selection of vibrant rainbow colours.


When purchasing this lovely wool, I had an idea in mind of making a tea cosy to fit our new teapot. I have to confess I bought this teapot especially as I wanted a try making a tea cosy. Dennis and I tend to prefer coffee over tea!


It is very cute and matches our lovely milk jug.


I also chose 6 shades of Rico Baby Classic dk. I went for cooler shades of blue, pink and purple, plus a pure white to break up the pastel colours. I also bought a plain cushion so I can already start to dress it in these lovely colours.


I made a start on my cushion this morning. I've started with a ripple and am going to see where it takes me!


Isn't it so nice starting new projects. I love the feeling of knowing that you can create anything that your mind dreams up. I also love how rewarding it is when you finish a project and can sit back and admire your work! To say "I made that" is such a great feeling!
