With Help From Lola...

I am always so delighted when I come across
such inspiration...
And LolaNova has been just that to me this week...


These Lovely
"Mary Go Round's"
Are just so easy!!!
and so fun to make...


I could not find any bangles to make mine with
and after much stress I turned to looking in the "Shed"...
Which is always a bit scary...
But I did find something just perfect...
Line Trimmer...Yes that stuff that you use on the whipper snipper 
to do your edges in the garden with...
I wrapped it twice around and stuck it together with some tape...
and it was done...
I can make any size (within reason)...
and 
as many as I like...
Well until my husband cottons on that is...
Anyway I am sure he hates doing the edges in the first place...lol...


Now to find this Tutorial follow the link HERE
You will all love it I know...
and be sure to add a comment on lola's post 
as I am positive she will love to hear from you all...

I do hope your week has been inspiring too...

Keep up the granny goodness my dears...

Dear Michelle, I am so in love with what you have done with these 'Mary Go Rounds'! I am so honored that you gave them a try and turned them into such beauties, how lovely. I must say your wall of Spring cheer is absolutely gorgeous and makes me smile a skippy happy smile! How clever of you to come up with the rings too! I like the way you think. I was using shower curtain rings yesterday!
Thank you for posting your pics on my group as well, it means so much!

Your wall looks really lovely and yes Lola's merry go rounds are great aren't they. I haven't had a chance to try them yet...but I will before the weekend is out!

As always, it's another fun visit today. I so love how you stage each picture. What an inspiration you are to us all....to think out of the box and be creative.

Hi Michelle
This is my first visit to your lovely blog.
I feel I've been 'guided' here by someone... maybe by my mother or even by my grandmothers (one who died even before I was born).
But I want tolearn to crochet and I'm sure you're the one to teach me!!!
I've got a book but that's not always clear enough for me, however I've looked at a couple of your tutorials and they look great thank you!!!
You'll see me back here often as I'm now a faithful follower!!

Please do come and see me and I'll get out my prettiest teacups and make you very welcome - across the sea!!
Take care
Shane

Yours are lovely! I'm thinking of having my little girls do some small embroidery projects and framing them in these little merry go rounds. They would be perfect together. Thanks for sharing the Flickr group with me. I must go have a look. Wishing you a happy week Michelle. :)
