Brightening up!

Happy March!

There is a biting east wind but sun has come out, a pair of geese have stopped by to relax on the pond for a day and the covid vaccines are rolling out at pace. So, after this long dark time, things (fingers crossed) seem to be brightening up.

And Granny Square’s new caravan, too, is finally starting to come together. The kitchen furniture has had a makeover.

The outside has been polka dotted with those self adhesive dots that you find in every stationery department.

And the inside just needs a coat or two more of paint and the floor, which I’m going to put in last so as not to ruin it.

Apart from that, I’ve made the windows from something called greyboard, which is a sort of cheap matte board so far as I can tell. My real issue with the windows is that they have to curve and this has worked quite well and could, I think, have worked better if I’d had more confidence in the process and taken greater care. I certainly think I will look for a better quality board and try making other things with it as it’s a lot more manageable than plywood or balsa, which I’ve used elsewhere.

I’m genuinely hopeful that by next Sunday I will have it finished, if not fully furnished. Maybe not the wheels but certainly the main body of it inside and out.

In the meantime, I wish you a lovely week,

Janine @ Rainbow Hare

    Things are indeed brightening up there. The sight of Granny Square’s little red caravan certainly brightens up my day. I want a red stove just like Granny Square!

    I had a great time reading all about your finished and wip projects, Janine! Such lovely knitting for Freya, she looks so sweet! The lighthouse is looking absolutely amazing! I LOVE your endeavour project, I know you got into trouble, but I am glad you followed your creative heart. Of course, I can’t wait to see more of the fabulous caravan!
