A Beautiful Mess DIY Circular Mat

After seeing this post on A beautiful mess i googled every possible search word to find out if i could buy a similar rug like this anywhere but i couldnt find anything. I decided to buy some wool and try my hand at making one and i think it turned out quite well. The steps on how to make it were really easy to follow and although i chose to keep the colours as close to the orginal as possible you could use any colours you would like. I bought the wool from The wool warehouse they have so much choice in colours and thickness and the prices are really cheap depending on what you want, all of my wool came to around £17 with postage. The pom pom trim i got from hobbycraft, i havent linked the site because you can only buy from store but its £2 per metre. Anyway, im really happy with it, i might try and make another one but a little bigger.

Happy Thursday.

Spring Has Sprung...

Last week we had the warmest few days since last summer so i decided to take my nan and her chihuaua for a walk through the park. It was nice to see a few flowers had popped up in the grass. I can't wait for Summer to officially arrive, im sick of wearing coats and scarves. When is it acceptable to start wearing sandals in England? hmm.
