Rainbow Pom Poms

 I only went into the craft shop to buy some embroidery hoops....
 But ended up coming away with 5 colourful wools to experiment with pom pom making

                            This is how I'll be wrapping my Christmas presents this year

Summer in Autumn

The Botanic Gardens Palm House in Belfast. A little bit of summer in the middle of Autumn
In the cool wing in full bloom....

In the stove wing my lens steamed up! This wing is full of amazing tropical plants! The 'corpse flower' will be blooming soon, it smells like rotting flesh, might give seeing that a miss.

Hope you're all having a lovely day

Continental Christmas Market at the City Hall

The Christmas Market in Belfast is in full swing, I went for a dander round with my camera, according to stall holders it's either £10 or £5 for a photograph, well if that's the case, I'm skint and have no money left to spend! My Christmas market favourites are the bags of bulbs, a warm gluhwein and nutella covered churros...

Friends Astra and Al The Itty Bitty Book Company have a stall there, pop by for some positivity : )

Just what I always wanted

Hope you're having a lovely weekend xx

I'm really enjoying working on lots of creative projects at the minute. This weekend I finished this alphabet picture for a nursery, all the letters are cut from colourful vintage fabrics.
