Picture Perfect Sundays 15.04.2012

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

Picture Perfect Sundays

Good Morning lovely people! Once again just a quick one from me today!
It's been a tremendously busy week for me! I've had extra performances at work due to the schools being on a break for Easter.
Trying to find time to do all of my other bits and pieces (work on the blog, go to German school, singing lessons, gym and of course crafting) have proven difficult.
I've even been looking on Ebay, for a pocket watch that can stop time. I believe they're out there? I haven't found one yet! I really must keep looking!
Even though it's been hard to fit everything in, being busy is how I like it! A BUSY Matt, is a VERY happy Matt :-)
So on this glorious Sunday Morning, I thought I'd give you a "Picture Perfect" post. A chance for me to share a couple of pics!
Now this picture, we've posted before. Its of a beautiful house that sits on the river close to our apartment. I just love it! Its a bright saffron colour and looks so perfect sat upon the glimmering water.

The reason I'm sharing this picture with you again, is because whilst searching through my laptop I came across another picture of the same house.
This picture was taken just a couple of weeks before the first. You can really see just how quick the seasons are changing!
I cant believe just a month ago we had such cold weathers that the river became an ice skaters dream! People were walking on the river as if it were a road!
I love the shapes of the paths that have been made in the snow and ice. Swirly and smooth!
BRRRRR! It makes me feel cold just looking at it!

After finishing my peg project, I feel like I had a little slump in creative energy and inspiration.
I NEED to have a project on the go, but for a brief moment I really didn't know what the next one should be.
No ideas and no projects, make me feel a little lost. Thank God that feeling didn't last too long!!! I now have ideas and inspiration coming out of my ears!!!
Here's what I've started working with:
A crafting clock.

Some new colours of embroidery floss.

Some wooden bits and bobs.

I'm combining the wood with yummy yarn and some crochet creativeness. I cant wait to show you what I come up with!
A spur of the moment bundle shot of mine and Dennis' blankets.
I feel such a sense of pride when I look at the things we have made!
I thought in the near future I would write a post that looks at each of the blankets individually. A chance to show them in a little more detail.

A postcard from our local Yarn shop/knit cafe! How fun is that!

How cute is the little sheep at the bottom just peering over edge of the card!
I couldn't resist taking a picture of this tree outside of the stage-door at work. It's in full blossom and looks so so pretty. The blossom looks delicate and light. I think it almost looks like a water colour painting.

I hope you are all having a 'Picture Perfect Sunday"!
I'm so very excited for tomorrow when Dennis and I pick the winners to the Y.A.R.N competition. You still have time to enter today (if you haven't already.) So many fantastic entries to choose from! I can't wait to share them with you!
Happy Sunday Funday!!!
