Day 2, Wildcard: Craft Your Perfect Day (3KCBWWC)

I was hoping to have inspiration for the photography topic for today, espeically as the prizes are so good, but I just can't summon it. So I'm playing the wildcard; early, I know, but it has to be done.

My Perfect Craft Day is at my place. As this is a dream day, I can totally be living in my dream flat - an older building with all the lovely built-in sound insulation. The main living room has a bay window or ideally a turret, into which a window seat is built so I can sit on it and store all my yarn in it. Or I could be in my dream house with its own craft room, very much like Ewenique's (blogged about here).

I definitely have visitors, not so many that I'm just hosting all day but enough, maybe four. The guestlist is fluid but it definitely includes Ewenique and Steph. They arrive about eleven or twelve; before that I tidy the house, clear any email, get through any chores, maybe blog and definitely go for a walk somewhere. Once they're here, mostly we knit and drink tea, have a spot of lunch, maybe cake and biscuits as the day wears on. My guests probably leave after an early dinner, and then I curl up with my knitting and more tea, and chat to my lovely boyfriend or watch a movie.

But until then, I have a much more modest crafty corner.


  1. aww i love this post, your crafty day sounds pretty much what i would love mine to be!!!! have a knitty tuesday xxx

  2. Your dream day sounds a lot like mine! :)

  3. I love the description of your dream flat, especially the turret. Knitting with good friends and tea & cake sounds like heaven.

  4. It sounds wonderful! Knitting with friends, tea and cake is perfect! :D

  5. Yay, what a nice relaxing day. I love the idea of sound-insulation - it's so necessary, isn't it? (Said as neighbors above drop something loudly on the floor.)
