Every Monday...

 
Every Monday I have my rituals... one of them is putting a new quote on my pinboard in the work room. I think the fabric used to cover this board is a Kaffe Fassett design. Yesterday whilst sat in the late afternoon sun, I made a tissue box cover to compliment the work room pinboard.
 
 
Small things that are making me happy today!

The tissue box does look round in the photos, it is oval and from Kleenex. They are relatively new to the market... I like them because they don't take up too much room x

MeMeRose said...

Hi Chel, I used moss stitch (see previous post for pattern link) and a 3.5mm hook. The flower was from a japanese crochet book and I am sure there will be something similar on Ravelry. Happy to have inspired you today!

MeMeRose said...

Maryam that is a lovely comment and I feel wonderful thinking I may have inspired you to start your own blog...thank you for taking the time to comment and I hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of your blog x

MeMeRose said...

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. Moss stitch would make a great blanket, because of the dense stitch it doesn't grow as fast as I would like! the fabric it creates is gorgeous though and it certainly would be a warm blanket.

Your Kindness quote is lovely. Mine says "Kindness Matters" I live by this everyday. I know it makes me happy too. Your tissue box cover is very very pretty. Hugs Judy

Jules said...

Your blog is a visual feast and I LOVE it! Thank you!!

Natas Nest said...

Wow, your tissue box cover is stunning ♥. And it's a great idea to cover the board with this beautiful fabric! I also like this Monday poem ritual :-). I've something similar on Sundays where I post a saying or quote (mostly with a nice picture) under the label "Sunday Sayings" on my blog. Maybe you have a look? I would be pleased if you'd like to visit my little corner, I'm a fan of your fabulous blog already for a long time :-)
