Wool shops and possibilities

There is nothing quite like it is there.  To walk into a wool shop, the excitement, the smell, the colours.  Oh how I just LOVE it.  I stand there in amazement at the endless possibilities that these lovely little balls of wool can create and what they will become.  

These last few days I have felt so dissatisfied with my crafty side.  This has been evident in my endless start and failure to complete projects.  I started a makeup purse, printed the fabric cut the pieces, started ... but for some reason could not finish.   I then attempted to make my lovely blue crochet basket, ( and we all know how that turned out !!)  I then made a little dummy/pacifier holder, which is not finished yet, because I am waiting for the delivery of the little clips.....  see what I mean, dissatisfaction.

So today, I had to do it.  I had to walk into what can only be described as a Happy Place.

This is what I came out with.....

Don't you just love the dusty colour. 
What do I have in mind I hear you ask ... well so far it looks like this .
I'm trying to obtain a vintage look, which is why I have used a loose pattern...
Of course I have to make sure that this little project actually gets finished.  But I do have a bit of a deadline and a reason ( details at a later time ) so there is a good chance that it will be finished soon.  And I must say I love to have something that I can get my teeth into ..... wish me luck. ..

Oh yes, this is how far I have got with the dummy/pacifier holder.  What do you think so far ?

Of course I have to weave in the yarn ends and add the clip.
 For a first attempt I think it turned out ok, but I have some other ideas I want to play around with.  Hopefully when the clips come I will make a few different ones to show you.

I hope that your day was a good one.  From MyLittleCorner
