Friday Link Love: June 2015

Did you have a good June? I've decided to make some of the features on here a bit more regular - I'm hoping to have a bit of an overhaul to make this blog a better experience for everyone! I'm thinking I'll share links on the last Friday of every month - gives me a chance to get lots of lovely things for you to read and be inspired by.
So, what are this month's links?

I loved this article on finding the WONDER of everyday life.

These interpretations of art make me laugh!

Thought Point: A Day in the Life of Pinterest.

I've set myself a challenge to read 30 books this year, and this list is providing inspiration!

Glenna gives some great advice on how to knit more.

I've not done much sewing recently, but compiling this board is making me want to!

Hope you've had a fantastic June!!

WIP Wednesday: All I see is PINK!

Phew! What a busy month! I finished my presidency of Knit-A-Soc (my local yarnaholics group), took a 2 week trip to Canada (many photos to follow) and found out that I had achieved a top final grade for all my university work (to my surprise and delight!).

All this busy-ness has meant that I have been turning to creating more than ever, picking up my latest project whenever I have a spare moment. That project, if you've been following on Instagram, is a pink dream! What started out as playing with some scraps has turned into a full blanket project. It's a wild one, this project, and started to get out of hand the moment I let those pink scraps loose!

I've spent several weeks making 50-odd pink circles... Each one different from the others, and all blindingly PINK!

This has been so fun to work on! But to stop the pink being so loud, I've decided to tone it down by joining them with grey, forming hexagons...

(Sorry for the quality - that last one was snapped with my phone)

I'm so quickly falling in love with this project that I may have to make another one afterwards for me! (This one is for the hospice...)

What are you working on? Link your blog or Instagram in the comments so I can see!
