weekend inspiration : a touch of 'glee'

I think a wee pick me up with some weekend inspiration from Flickr, is the perfect way to round off the week. Somehow I always find a few minutes for browsing Flickr, updating groups and adding lots of pretty pics to my favourites, but it's been a wee while since I've been able to indulge myself by playing with the mosaic maker. Today I have treated myself to just that and looking through my favourites I found these lovelies...

I think my favourite colour combination has to be these non-colours (cream, white, grey, beige and black) with lovely snippets of red, olive, mustard, teal and orange. I can't help combining them in my crochet work and I love seeing them being applied so beautifully in these images. Especially in this gorgeous festive door ornament that Miss Tif (aka ~ dottie angel) posted on her blog yesterday as part of her 'week of glee'. Miss Tif was also lovely enough to tell all of how she made this 'cluster of glee' in her post.

If I can find a few odd balls of yarn that I'm willing to part with I shall definitely be adding a wee bit of festive, granny chic 'glee' to my studio.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
