It has been quiet on the blog last week - I basically spent the week frogging knitting projects (too many mistakes I can cope with); spending time on a (free) crochet pattern that turned out wrong (and now I am working out how it should be written from a picture); and generally sleeping a lot. All activities useful but nothing concrete to show, and can you believe it is already July, where did June go? Honestly I have no idea.
If you follow me on twitter and IG you may have noticed that I am getting very interested in ethical fashion and it is probably going to show in my review of this month.

- I have also found again shopping in thrift shops exciting - but I am getting pickier about which shops to go to.
|Jar thrifted - original Totem Portmeirion 1963; Top Ekyog (this is the back of it)|
- I have beads, I have thread, I could make these rings no problem, right? Maybe for July's le Challenge (the theme is small).
- And the most useful tutorial goes to Lladybird who has me overcome my fear of cutting my fabric by ripping it (I know it sounds wrong but it totally works, and it is SO satisfying!)
- I may have also gone a bit World Cup crazy, and Baby MiH is learning a lot of new (useful) words ('Allez les gars'/'Come on guys', 'but'/'goal' ..). Guess we can only get crazier as France just qualified for the quarter finals.
