While on holiday to Loch Ness I popped in to Morag’s Crafty Bothy for a bit of pottery painting. I picked this hedgehog pen holder and a selection of crazy colours and created not a pen holder but a hook holder! It now sits with a few of my other crafty makes above my desk.
The recent Royal Wedding themed Little Box of Crochet had the supplies to make this very cute teacup and saucer. Working with the gold was a real pain in the ass but the end result made it worth the trouble.
I had used the crochet corner to corner method of making Ariel in the middle and had always planned on making the other princesses to make a full blanket. Turns out I hate doing the corner to corner method. I fins it very messy having all those bobbins and threads everywhere. I found some rather cute Little Mermaid fabric and decided to just make this into a cushion. Again this turned out rather wonky but still pretty overall.
Stitched this up on a sunny day in the garden and it’s now hanging in my mother-in-laws kitchen.
This 4 leaf clover was a leaving gift to our Dean here at the uni. Very fun to make, especially the finishing touches of the eyes and smile 🙂
Issue 26 of Crochet Now magazine had a rather sweet pattern for a cupcake topped cowl which I couldn’t resist. I raided my stash and found some Caron Simply Soft in suitable colours and whipped this up in just 1 day using some red buttons as the cherries on top.
The March Little Box of Crochet was irresistible and perfect for the Easter break.
So I took a long break from working on the mandala but I picked it up again and managed to get the end of part 8.
Another Star Wars figure for my brother-in-law, this time Luke Skywalker looking rather serious.
This was December’s Little Box of Crochet kit. I just love the beard and the little bell on his hat
