Continuous pompoms...

It's been lovely having an extra day off this week, with a bank holiday here in the Uk, more time to play!
I did pop to town on the Monday to check out the carnival procession.

          We went for a mid week beach walk, where we saw pretty pastel, tranquil sunset skies.

Thank you to everyone's pompom advice last week, just one set it will be on the scrap yarn basket. I just need some goog light so I can take some decent pictures of the scrappy set.
My next basket is already underway, in fact the actual body is complete, but you'll be pleased to know that there is still an abundance of pompoms.

When i'd been plucking out different colours for the scrap baskets, I found a multi tone ball which I decided would be perfect for a basket all its own.

This one has been much quicker to work up without any colour changes, but to make it more interesting I thought i'd go all out with pompoms on this one!

So there's been plenty of wrapping, cutting, and fluffing!!

I am still continuing with the beast of the Mandala, slowly but surely i'm working my way round, but it sure is time consuming!

To give my wrists a bit of a break, I had a little play with my mini loom.
I had a go at the basics and some fringing.
Ideally I would love to have matching wall hangings to go with the baskets, but time will tell whether I can achieve this.

Can you believe we are already in September, and I've already had my first Christmas delivery at work :-(  I don't like that the evenings are drawing in already, and that we are heading towards Autumn.
Here's a look back at August


  1. You just have so much to share each week, busy busy! Multi coloured pom poms are a big love of mine, I think we should have a law that says they have to be on everything!

  2. *SWEET*!! :-D
    THANKS for the "dedication"! -- I've never been "pommed" before... ;-}
    BTW, I *do* LIKE that particular colour mix. -- You know, if you turn it upside down, it might actually make for an interesting "hat"..?
    Anyhoo, now that you've gone "varigated" with your colour selection, the NEXT step is to do TWO *different* ones TOgether! Opposite colours, but of the same tonal value. Or, just take a baby-step and do one varigated with a "solid"...
    Whichever, go *wicked* with it!!

  3. I love the random wool as gives depth to the colour of your baskets. The mandala is looking good. I love Brighton do not go as often as we used to since they moved the record collectors fair to the back of the BIC, a bit cramped for space.

  4. Love the turquoise - always like that colour.

  5. I love the colours of your baskets, especially the multi-toned one
