Missing in action!

Hello everyone! Gosh has it been so long since last posting?! It has been very, very busy this end. Not as busy with crafting as I would like, but slowly getting back into it!!

I am a crafter who usually requires a lot of thinking time before doing anything. I find it hard to just follow an example, hence why I find it practically impossible to mass produce! Each item is nearly always different from the previous. So in the evenings lately, when I get to sit down, my head is usually too frazzled to start being creative. I veg in front of the tv crocheting. I find it so relaxing letting the hook and yarn take over! I recently got a beautiful, generous gift of some fabulous coloured yarns, so I have decided to pass on the goodness with gifts to as many people possible. It will take a long time, but I will get there!!  Anyway, enough of my ramblings! Here are some photos of what I have been working on....


This is a cardigan I made for my friends little baby. I love the colour, haven't made anything blue in a while. I'm used to princess colours lately!




This is a handbag I made for a little friend of my daughters. I am in the process of making a matching hairband, after all every girl needs a bag and hairband, right? I am also planning on making one for every little girl in my life. :D

This was my first time to crochet a flower, and despite the many patterns I tried follow, I couldn't get the hang of it. So this I did by experimenting. I made the starting ring, particularly large and loose so that the cylindrical button could act as the clasp (??! Is that what it's called?!) and be pulled through to close it.



I hope where ever you are today, you are enjoying your day. Thanks for stopping by :)
