Read Roses

Just submitted this item for the upcoming It's a Wrap Exhibition at The Collective in Florida Road. 
It's made from vintage book papers and the doiley is made from an old pattern instruction sheet.  The backing poster is a stitched patchwork of retro rose pictures.
The exhibition opens on Wednesday night and runs until the 21st Jan 2012.
 The title of my entry - A Bunch of Read Roses!

A rare bout of flu this past weekend meant that I was able to finish covering these glass bowls.
[I can lie on the couch and crochet at the same time!]

These very well worn pyrex and cutglass pieces make a good frame for string crochet.
They are at 106 Bulwer Road at The Caboodle already! And yay - I am feeling so much better.

Found Bonsai

I gained a spontaneous bonsai collection this weekend. Paging through vintage books, I came across these lovely line drawings.  
Completely inspired by this issue of the latest Elle Decoration Mag, these book page botanicals are adorning the top of my cupboard, in a very maintenance free way.
Adding some colour are bead balls - a gift from a friend [Thanks Kim!]
