crazy randomness

What I love about blogland is the chance to interact with other bloggers and be inspired by their posts. Once such blogger is Ali who writes Random Wooliness. Her projects are always colourful and a bit wacky......have a look at her blog click here
A wee while ago we decided it might be fun to do a joint project, pick a theme and then see what both of us would come up with.  Ali is a great ideas person and she came up with the title "Crazy Randomness". We are hoping to reveal our work at Easter and the theme is "Spring", looking to the poem - "It's Spring" by John Foster for inspiration.......
 
It's Spring

It's spring
And the garden is changing its clothes,
Putting away
Its dark winter suits,
Its dull scarves
And drab brown overcoats. 

Now, it wraps itself in green shoots,
Slips on blouses
Sleeved with pink and white blossom,
Pulls on skirts of daffodil and primrose,
Snowdrop socks and purple crocus shoes,
Then dances in the sunlight.

John Foster 

Just to give us a bit of a challenge we decided to include something recycled (or from a charity shop) and also a new technique in our final piece.
I've been in the garden today looking for inspiration as the weather has been very spring like.....


 
Can't wait to see what Ali comes up with! Have a great week everyone, Ali.
