Hey guys! Just had 10 restoration fillings done in one session yesterday!! Feel better now & my teeth look fab! All ready now if I feel I want to do some singing gigs! Woot!
So Christmas as always is all consuming. Photos are a bit crap & raw, the items are being blocked but I just wanted to share.
The snow flakes are by Joanne Scrace (notsogranny you may also know her by) check her patterns out on ravelry.com. Sorry I’m on my phone & quite frankly am doing this real quick, but you will find it easily. Search notsogranny & look for snow flake or search FREE patterns for snowflake .. But the former would get you HER snowflake.. I think it’s the easiest thing I’ve ever crocheted! And I cannot stop making them!
The photo above they’ve been soaked in 1 part PVA glue & 1 part water, wrung out and blocked to stiffen the lil things.
Now .. The tea light rose!!
It’s an AMAZING thing you make when finished. She had rose or lotus. I’m making 2 of each. 2 roses in Xmas colours & lotus in lotus-y colours :p
Here is the link to the lotus and from there you’ll find the Christmas rose with the holly like in my photo. And this wonderful woman has some great patterns and projects!
ADDED: here .. I got off my arse & here is the direct link to Christmas rose as in photo above .. :)
If anyone has trouble finding anything just gimme a yell ;)
So all the photos are a bit crap today cause they’re being blocked .. Ill photograph the finished result & pop it up on here.
Just one last thing .. The Christmas rose just comes to LIFE when the candle is lit.
Such a Christmassy vibe .. Normally I don’t go for Christmas colours but a red rise sat on Christmas green holly leaves .. Look so gorg!!
Oh and by the by I got an early Christmas pressie from my partner, because we will be apart this year :(
It was Lady gaga’s book! I’m not a MASSIVE fan of the music as much as her .. Love her. Back in my punk days I would have worn ALL that stuff .. And did. But back then you couldn’t buy all this stuff you had to make it. We had to mix and make our own make up and even false eye lashes were hard to come by! So hat off to the Gag’s ;)
