Burano treasures

Hello readers!

You may have noticed that I have been a bit more quiet those past few weeks, maybe I haven’t replied to messages, liked you posts or commented on all the lovely things you post on your blogs. You see, I have been very busy during this time: I finally got to go on honey moon!

I’ve seen some pretty amazing things so far, but I just could not wait to share some of the things I’ve bought in Italy.

We went on a trip to Burano, a tiny island off Venice, which is very famous for its lace work. I think most of it is actually tatting, and after seeing all those beautiful things, I really want to learn how to.

So I bought an owl bookmark, then I fell in love with a little lace fish, and of course, I had to get some Italian crochet cotton, in navy blue. I don’t quite know what I will make with it but hopefully something that will remind me of Venice and Burano.

The Brookfield show

Hello lovely people!

One of my goals this year was to enter my first craft fair, and this is now done! Last Saturday was the entry day for the Brookfield show and I made a teapot cosy just for this fair. The theme of the competition was ‘Country’.

I’ve added a lot more flowers since I lasted showed this to you guys. I really like how it ended looking, although I don’t really like the look of the actual teapot.

My second entry for the show was my lace doily, the one I made from my nana’s old crochet magazine 🙂 Here are some pictures to refresh your memory

For entering the craft competition, we all got given a lovely booklet with lots of embroidery projects for all seasons. I’m definitely excited to try a few of those out!
