One A Day......

I've been going great guns this week working on my Custard scarf. I think it's because I know there is still so many other things to get done, that I need this finished.
I have been able to do 2 blocks of the repeated pattern each night, and pink marks the spot where I was last week.

Now, I asked you lovely people out there last week about Pom Pom Makers. Everyone said they had not used the machine but the cardboard ring method. The lovely Sarah at Crafts From the Cwtch suggested Pinterest, and wow what a wealth of pom pom making tips did I find.

Here is my attempt at making them ..... using my hand!! (it did suggest forks but I wanted bigger!)

And here is my finished garland

It's quite a dark picture, but I love the garland. I would like to add some more but time ran out, at least I got the 7 done for this week.

Finally, I know this isn't One a Day, but I hope you don't mind me adding this on the end!!!

I was given the Liebster Blog award last week from Janette at The Green Dragonfly.
Liebster means 'Dearest or Beloved" in German, and I was stunned to be one of the people she picked. Especially as I love the other blogs she picked as well.
It is suggested that you then past the award onto 5 of your favorite blogs, so here goes.......
