Time box progress

I've made a little progress on the time box today. I had an idea to use some pictures of tranquil scenes from holiday brochures as a background. I love looking through travel brochures and planning holidays that I can't afford to take and often manage to lose myself in this activity for an hour over a cup of coffee. I thought I could then overlay this with some clock pictures. It turned out like this:

This was not pleasing. I actually prefered the back which I just overlayed in some paper with clocks on.

I decided to play around with some waterclours to try and reproduce the colours from the paper on the back and ended up with something much more appealing, but didn't get a chance to take a photo, so you'll have to wait to see it.

In other news, I have joined a amigurumi cow CAL on the Fresh Stitches ravelry group/blog. I'm making a pink and white cow with the horrid candy pink yarn that I hate. It will only have small pink blotches so I should be able to cope with that. And it is a really cute cow! I spent half an hour trying to find my 5mm hook so I could cast it on tonight, then finally gave up and decided I would just have to pop to the shops tomorrow and get another, only to stand up and find I was sitting on it! So I'm off now to get it started. Wish me luck, my crochet skills are quite basic.

I'll leave you with a pic of a book protector I made a couple of months back and forgot to post. I used two strands of Dk for this. The hand dyed blue wool came from a lovely little shop in Great Missenden that I visited with a friend and I can't remember the name of. If anyone knows what it is called I'd be grateful as they also have a website and I'd like to buy some more of this yarn. It was only £3 a skein and it is wonderful to knit with.
