I know zilch about html so my blog has always been very plain. I do quite like it that way but I've always wanted a more decorative banner at the top. I thought new (beta) blogger would make it easy, but not so, I tried and tried but couldn't insert a picture in the header. Then I found Peter Chen's blog with simple instructions for how to do it. I followed them and yay, it worked!
The picture you see up there at the moment is some of the shirts I have bought in charity shops and cut up for patchwork, I am going to make a Yellow Brick Road out of them for my next project. I like the idea of changing the banner each month to show a different picture.
Aside from that I have nothing even vaguely quilty or crafty to report so how about a picture of an enamel mug I bought in Prague? It seems like a bit of a bizarre thing to post but perhaps it will make sense when I say that the reason I bought it was because it reminded me of Tonya's wonky houses.
Thanks for all the encouraging comments on the String Bag - it was so simple to make but I feel very virtuous using a reusable bag made from reclaimed fabric instead of a plastic one, though my daughter did say that people would think I was a hippy. Nothing wrong with hippies is there?
