Sentimental Spooky Stitching

In a recent Little Box of Crochet there was a mini cross stitch kit from the Geeky Stitching Co.  I fell back in love with Cross Stitch which I hadn’t picked up for years.  I quickly subscribed to the Geeky Stitching Co’s monthly box and my first box was the Halloween theme.  Creep it Real folks.creep it real

Amigurumi Bunnies

Another birthday gift for a friend who has two really life rabbits. I tried to use colours to match her rabbits. I treated myself o some lovely cotton from Wool and the Gang which was lovely to work with. 

Cactus We Can’t Kill

Simply Crochet issue 59 came with a small kit to make these rather adorable cactus plants. The kit only had enough yarn to make one cactus but I was really keen to make both for a friend so I had a rummage through my rather substantial stash.

Exciting New Things

I finally decided to open that Etsy shop my friends have been pestering me about.  It doesn’t have much on it at the moment but I hope to add more soon. If you want to bookmark the page then you can find a link in the sidebar.
I have also now created a Facebook page to go along with the blog and shop so feel free to pop along and like my page (link also in the sidebar ) 🙂

Dragon Wing Shawl

While at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival I spent a small fortune on this cake of hand dyed gradient yarn from Hungary.  The yarn is made from silk and baby camel and is one of the softest things I’ve ever laid my hands on.  The soft downy fur from the underside of the baby camel is used. The seller does have an esty shop that you can find here. I decided to make the dragon wing shawl and used some Drops baby alpaca silk yarn to edge around.
