Kitchen Poetry, Friday

OK, so this is sort of cheating for my last Kitchen Poetry day. These aren't strictly speaking photos of my kitchen, but they were taken *near* my kitchen - there's been nowhere near enough light in there today to take a real kitchen based photo. One of Tall Small's spellings this week was kitchen - does that count?

These are the little things I made for Trashy's Rainbow swap; I'm fairly sure my swap partner isn't a regular reader and even if she is, she doesn't know I'm sending to her yet so I should be safe.


First of all a little bit of rainbowy-crystal necklace goodness, because who could resist such cheery sparkles?


And then a felty rainbow covered notebook that gave me such a lot of pleasure while I was making it. I know it's supposed to be bluebirds over rainbows, but my bluebirds looked more like dying ducks so I went with a butterfly instead.


I also included rainbow coloured thread, fabric, buttons and a mini stack of felty squares - hope it arrives safely and that she likes it!

  3. Just a thimbleful....

    Wouldn't it be funny if we had been sitting near each other on Sunday? There's a thought to think on...

    I love your rainbows, and why shouldn't butterflies fly over as well as bluebirds?

  13. Just. Gorgeous. There's something about the rainbow colours sitting next to eachother like that that brings a big old smile isn't there? Love the swarovski crystal necklace. It's even lovelier than you described. Sweet felty rainbow too.

    I'm off to peer out of the window. I don't think the sky's gonna cough up though. No, just grey, no bows of rain.

  19. I'm a regular lurker.... does that count?

    The parcel arrived yesterday and I've taken photos already. I'll write a formal show and tell post at work today. (The kids have finished their exams so it isn't unprofessional. Not really...)

    Thank you so much. Mention 'rainbow' to DottyCookie and she goes all out! Such a riot of colour! That notebook cover is just lovely, (though flying blue ducks would have been fine... we have them in Australia. They live near the bunyips in the billabongs.) I'm going to wear the necklace to work today and I'll be fielding compliments all day. And the felt... what a good idea! I wish I'd thought of it.

    Again, thank you! I'm so lucky to have you as a partner. (Maybe now I'll de-lurk occasionally....)
