Yes I have been looking round Flickr getting more inspiration for things which I am unlikely to get chance to make (Have you seen the length of my things to make list???)

More inspiration! by you.

1 & 2 – Jeans Bags – I have a bag of Jeans which I have kept to make a Jeans bag out of, I love number 1 as it is quite big and practical for getting books in etc, although I also love the small style of number 2. Hmmmm decisions, decisions!

3 – Golf Club covers – My fiance would like me to knit him some covers for his ‘new’ clubs. No rush as he hasn’t actually saved up enough money for the new clubs yet!

4 – Whimsy/Hobby Jars – I love these Jars!! I have to have a go at making them as they are so cute. Especially the small pin cushion ones. Perhaps for some presents this year ?

5 – Arm Warmers – I ALWAYS have cold hands/arms. These are my next project after the farm animals

6 – Knitted Nativity Scene – I have always wanted a nativity scene so am going to knit one of these for Christmas as there is a pattern in my new Alan Dart Book

7 – Halloween Tree! – I love the idea of havin trees and decorations for other festivals, I wanted an Easter Tree but we were all ill over Easter, so we will definitely be having a Halloween Tree.

8 – Knitting Needle Roll – I love these and once I have a few more knitting needles in my collection I shall be making one of these to keep them in ( also want to make each of the boys a ‘crayon roll’ for in their stockings this year

9 – Fabric Envelopes – I need to make some of these as part of our new budget using the Envelope system. This one is for an ipod but I’m sure I could make the same Idea for Money!

Here are a few pictures I have added as Faves on Flickr recently, saving them for ‘inspiration’

Inspiration by you.

1. This picture of Vienna I found on a swapbot partners Flickr Photostream, I’ve saved it as we need to paint the back of our house (downstairs) and I can’t decide what colour to go for!

2. Oragami Hearts – One of my missi0n 101 goals is to make a piece of oragami, I like the look of these hearts so will have to find out how to make them.

3. Matchbox/buttons swap! – I LOVE Buttons (always have done) also would love to try a matchbox swap, this one looks fab.

4. Cupcakes 🙂 – I love cupcakes, really want to make some really pretty pink ones like this. However my  2yr old can’t have any artificial colours and also Beetroot (used in non-artificial colouring) so seems a bit cruel to make them when he can’t have them? May have to make him some white ones 🙂

5. ATCs – After looking on swapbot and Flickr, I’d love to give ATCs a go (could be my ‘new’ craft for my mission 101) I have someone from swapbot who is willing to trade with me so when I get chance (after the farm animals!!) I may give it a go.

6. How amazing is this play house???? I LOVE it! I’d love the boys to have a play house, although this one is maybe a little bit girly for them.

7. Charm Bracelet – I started collecting charms again for my silver charm bracelet last year, I would love it to be as full as this one 🙂

8. St Ives. I love it there. Hopefully we may be going for a short break in October and ultimately we would love to move to Cornwall/Devon (after I finish University!)

9. St Ives again.
