Isolation Compensation Bunting !

This weekend lots of members of my facebook group have been knitting ISOLATION COMPENSATION Bunting!

Isolation Compensation Bunting
This was my latest Mystery Knit - no name, no description .... no-one knew what they were making. 
They just followed the instructions and hopefully had a good time! 

I hoped that a fun project would cheer us all up a little in these difficult times.
It is hard to be socially isolated! I miss my family so much! 

Thank goodness we have our crafting to help us through! 

Here are some of the lovely results ~

Make more 'flags' - then join them together by threading them onto a length of ribbon, twine or a simple crochet chain. 
Decorate as desired! These would be great for a Baby or Child's Room, 
an Easter or Christmas Decoration, or for a party, wedding or celebration! 


If you would like to make Rainbow Bunting ~

then simply make your 'flags' in the colours of the rainbow

red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet 

Good and beautiful things often follow the darkest storms.

Or - for The Queen's Jubilee - why not make some in Red, White and Blue !!
