Colourful Jars

Jar covers were my first inspiration to learn to crochet almost 3 years ago. 

One year later I finally learnt and made a crochet jar cover, and this week I've made three! 

It's all part of my home lovin' and nesting. I'm just trying to make this place more us, more me, and more happy.  

Speaking of homes, our little flat we rent has just gone up for sale. Would somebody please buy it and keep us on as tennants / not raise our rent again? That would be fabulous, thank you. Otherwise I might just go into early labour. Trying not to think about it. 

And here's a bonus shot of my Sophie Slim workstation. We're lucky enough to have a spare room (for the next few months anyway). This room is a collaboration of: The Sisterhood HQ, craft supplies, Mr Moos business, spare bed, spare TV, washing and drying and folding room, and anything else that needs a quick home!

  7. Its nice to see your little space and the jar covers really help give it some fun and colour. I have heaps of baby jars - thanks for giving me an idea for how to rework some of them. (Funny that my 'show and tell' is also storage for my home sewing corner)

    What's the scripture reference to the print? It's Awesome! Somewhere in Proverbs 31?

    I remember when you started the crochet adventure. Long may it continue :)
