Pom poms! One of the many forgotten things from my childhood (this includes slap bracelets, Stretch Armstrong and yo-yos). I'm not sure why, but I had this sudden urge to make some! Probably has got to do with me looking for a beanie pattern... I'm still trying to figure out what to do with all these pom poms that I've been making on the train (excellent time killer). I could make a mobile, but I think I'm leaning towards a floating pom pom garland.

I'm bridesmaid for a good friend this July, and I'm helping out with the decorations. I'm making some flowers from scratch using crepe paper, which I really love working with. It comes in so many beautiful colours and is pretty much stretchy paper, which I think is so amazing. For the wedding, the flowers are going to be attach to the bombonieres, but I've also made a garland using the flowers which looks so pretty! I will be posting up photos after the wedding, to be sure not to give anything away...

I just bought a pattern for an ascot scarf by Mel P, and I can't wait to start! Thinking of making it in either a deep red, mustard or navy. Perhaps if my first attempt is successful, I might make it in all colours.
