In (desperate) need for inspiration | PRECIOUS

I was very organised last month, this month not so much. I have three potential projects for 'precious' but have started none of them. And I am now thinking none of these projects can actually be made on time. This has nothing to do with the theme - and everything to do with me not being able to sit down and actually make it. 

Anyway, instead of making something for this theme, I decided to spend some time on Pinterest and see what came up if one typed precious... 

Yep, it nearly made me cry it was so cute!

I think I will be most likely to make something for Baby MiH this time round - and you can find my knitting list here, and they may be something from there that will appear next week..  

I have also a thing for metallic thread... And this pillow is quite inspiring - sashiko in metallic thread... 

Or these tutorials could bring even more inspiration..

3. (bottom right) geometric laptop sleeve
Or these precious stars...
