Thanks For a great Coffee Break this Morning

Thanks Annie and was lovely to catch up

When l got back there was a little something on the door Clover Pom Pom Maker
and l'd nipped into the shop on the way home and picked up a wow of a magazine..
Some times there isn't as much as you hoped for in them, but love every page of this months 
Country Homes & Interiors
James turned up and we cooked and ate lunch together and then l sat and made a few pom poms
WOW! Fabulously easy with this little gadget

Thanks Non Blogging Alice, it certainly was a great buy
The stripe is the start of the other bathroom mat....but the colours were right to show off the 
pom poms....
These are the 2.5" pom poms, they do a small set 3/4" and an 1" so l might be tempted to buy that too and make small ones to edge rugs, blinds, lamp shades  etc.

About 15grms a pom pom, to gives me an idea
The blue and oatmeal striped mat l made is approximately 13 x 8 =104 pom poms about 16 x 100gram  balls of wool to make a small rug
Originally l said l wanted to make a rug with about 200 pom poms....may be not! LOL
l would certainly recommend the 

and l'll let you know about the small set
Just having a quick play with mixed colours...l'm hooked hehe

Have a terrific Thursday everyone
Hugs to all x


  1. oohh that gadget looks fab, must see if I can get one. Oohh I usually like that magazine, will have to have a nose at it when I next go shopping although I bought Mollie Makes yesterday so should really ration myself lol.

  2. Oh Suz, I just love settling in with a lovely magazine! My favorites are - Country Living & Coastal Living. Love beachy colors and decor!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Oooh those pom poms look ace! Really like them. x

  4. FAB bit of equipment...definitely a stocking filler or birthday pressie for all crafters
    Hugs x

  5. i never knew you could get a gadget that makes pom poms, lovely. Likewise i treated myself to a mag today lots of lovely stuff in it x

  6. Good to catch up Suz. Your pom pom maker looks like fun. Will love to see your finished item!!

  7. The USA has the answer for everything crafty - I wish the UK crafter was half as well provided for.
    Relatively inexpensive too, compared to here - I'd emigrate tomorrow on the strength of their fabric/craft shops alone :-)

    Non-blogging Alice :-)
