First of all a Picture of Rose in a hat her Mum was part way through making for her. isn't lovely (mind you she is pretty scrummy too)
I have actually got my act together and started to clear up around here. The wool shed is now no longer full of wool but is ready to become my hide away from it all shed with my spinning wheel, or just somewhere tidy to go and sit. (read hide). I chucked out stuff that was of no use to man kind or Colette and three bin bags later this is what I had.....
A tidy shed (last time you saw it it was full of playing puppies!)
This is the next thing on the to do list.
Not helped by frogs spawning in some of the most awkward of places!!
Now this is what my title refers to. I saw a picture in this months Country Living Magazine and really liked it, but at £60 (and being able to do it myself) not an option. I don't know what size the original one is but I had just brought myself an Ikea frame so I had a play. Fun too, I love doing needle felt anyway. I searched the net for different needle felted nest/pictures and there are lots that do actually look very similar (well a nest is a nest isn't it - can't make it too different) so here is my question.
If you blog about something you have made and if you are showing how you do it or just showing the final item you are almost inviting people to 'have a go' or change it slightly to make something 'inspired' by what you have make. Take all the things that Lucy at Attic 24 makes or the tea cozies that Alice makes, we all have a go at making the Granny Stripe blanket, things that we see made on the internet, or pictures in magazines. I know that ages ago I saw a blog post and the blogger was having a really big moan about people making her owls and selling them. But hang on she did sell the pattern!! So does that mean that Mrs Bloggs in Dorset makes something and Miss Oz Blog sees it, is it OK for her to make her own version of it and sell it in her local craft store or should she not even if she is thousands of miles away.
I changed this, made it mine, either to keep or to give to a friend, I don't know.
See something else for my head to think about.
I don't know if any of that made any sense, If anyone sees something on my blog, I am happy for them to copy it, to make some and sell it (coz you can bet your bottom dollar I won't have got off my arse and done it!!) I'd be chuffed that someone liked what I had made so much that they wanted to make one too. Just don't try to sell them in Bridport please!!
But on a lighter note have had very important letter officially offering me the new job!
Am slightly nervous now though.
Have a great week, the sun is out here and I am off to work.
