Indoor sunshine

If you came here last week, you would have seen these. They are still going strong!!! I think they are absolutely amazing  and I am still mesmerised by them. Hope you don't mind seeing them again ;-)

I've also got some of these at the moment, Boyfriend's sister gave them to me at the weekend when they came over and they are so lovely!!! Sorry about the light in this photo, I took in on Sunday evening! But you still get the idea, they are lovely!

And finally these. Again, if you've been reading my blog for a bit, you'll remember my lavender frenzy. Well I've still got some of the little bouquets I'd made and here's one I've got on the window sill in our bedroom. It was in the vase the white flowers are now in (anyone know what they're called by the way??) but I had to use that for the flowers, so I moved the lavender into a kilner jar. And I love it!! It looks a little rustic, I hope you like it too!

Now, onto the second part of my indoor sunshine - it's not all about flowers you see! It's about.... wait for it.... a hand towel! I know this may sound odd but who doesn't like flowers and a bit of knitting hey?!

After reading Fancy Elastic's post about a knitted hand towel, I knew I had to have one. Now I know it's not the first time I get inspiration from Fancy Elastic, but I thought it was such a clever thing. I have that problem too with tea towels slipping off the oven handles, and I thought it would be perfect! I also found a similar project on Ravelry with different colours and completely fell in love with it. So there, here it is.

Do you like it? I think it's really cute! And made with 100% organic cotton! I'm planning on making another two, one slighly darker in the same kind of shade, and another white. It could make a nice present too, but it does take a little bit of time to make, and I'm trying to get on track for Christmas presents (sorry, I've mentionned it again!!!) so it might have to wait for a bit.
Anyway, come back tomorrow and I'll show you what I did with my blackberries! Have a nice day! xx

Oh it's all very lavender lovely over here.

A quick response on knitting needles and planes - I've never had a problem talking on the small sock needles,not sure about larger needles but I know that many people do take knitting on planes without security being upset. Here's hoping there's no problem on my next trip!

Oh, I love the handtowel! It'd be perfect to hang off my oven to look for the pattern now!
