Here is a peak at one of my dream catchers I’m making. I’ve made some small ones now I’m onto the large one. The centre is crocheted, and looks like people all holding hands. Like a tribe .. To me anyway, well I believe it’s the idea behind the crochet pattern itself. So I had done the ring & had it just sitting in my to-do project pile .. & yesterday I saw it & just went RIGHT girl!! You ARE going to finish this or AT LEAST get started on the finishing bits!! So I did. It was hard, I didn’t have ideas flying at me & because its not in traditional colours & natural looking feathers I was worried it wasn’t going to be that great. So I googled dream catchers & one of the 1st images I saw just made me go “ah ok .. just do what YOU want to do , it doesn’t matter that it doesn’t look “traditional”, just make something YOU like. Stuff anyone else!” .. And so I did. It’s not finished but I’m liking the over all effect. Oh and you should see it hanging in the window!! Oh the light coming through those coloured feathers!!😱😍 So, as I said not finished but I wanted to share my progress😁 I hope people like it but its for me but I am thinking of adding these to my sell list. Now that I’ve seen some others my brain is FULL of ideas now.👍 Ive only got 3 more rings, but you can use vines, or triangle one with twigs .. Your imagination is your limit. I have to remind myself if this EVERYDAY! Enjoy! & PLEASE if you like it click like & or give me a comment. I’m open to advice, suggestions & questions😘💕

I think it explains it all😋 I have a MASSIVE range of boards, most craft & art. There are others like “trinkets” or “tats on girls punk” or “dirty car artwork”.. But mainly crochet & loom bands. Crochet is divided into many categories for example: crochet for baby/child, crochet flowers,crochet blankets,amigurumi and so on & so on. Please have a looky & see if you see a board you like or just follow me in general👍😁🎈🎈🎈

Learnt this little flower from #mbmrainbowloom It’s SOO easy & fast. Great party bag/gifts/pass the parcel (make it a ring or necklace) the possibilities are endless. So are the colour possibties. I’ve done this one with only 2 colours, and another I did a solid hot pink flower with black in the middle, both look really cool. Give it a try if you haven’t already! Search YouTube for lily flower charm madebymommy 👍 #mbmrainbowloom #socraftastic #tutorialsbya #loom #rainbowloom #crochet #hook #flower #DIY #rubber bands #bands #colour

Just a few pics of what I’m up to.

Still crocheting Dont worry about that ;) 
But this tatting is SO addictive!! So as I’ve said I’ve been needle tatting. But I just did a HUGE thread & bits haul & I got myself a pair of shuttles! I had a go yesterday , seems do-able .. I thought it would just do my head in but it’s not to bad a part from the “flipping ” bit .. Arrghhh… Aaaaanyway.

I also purchased a hair pin lace loom, doing that right this minute .. Learning I mean. Pretty fun.

I got some BEAUTIFUL cotton from Heirloom, so I immediately had to make some little hearts to try out the new cotton.. I’ve waited WAT too long to get into 8ply cotton .. It’s BEAUTIFUL! So soft. I see why it’s so trendy.

And there is a bunch of tatted earrings I’m holding .. That was taken a week ago, there are now 8 times that many earrings! Ill show proper pics with links on how to make them in next post.

And then there is the ring I was finally able to make in the correct thread size. I made one using 4ply thread & it’s ok I THOUGHT til I made this one. It’s oh so pretty & it fits really well. Great beginners prodjects , and you can make so many colour variants & verigated colour threads too.

So I’m going back to my hair pun lace loom now :)

Hope this has found you well. Please like this post if you found it interesting at all. Thanks :) It’s those likes that keep up the free patterns & links to all the up to the minute trends & what not. Also makes ME happy & I blog for myself mainly & if people like it that’s awesome reward.

Enjoy!

Hello again!

Crappy photos I know.. No light at all today (winter here) But I’m just trying to get posts done! So neeerrr anyone who sneers at them :p

Here is the BEST daffodil pattern I’ve ever seen. Of course Lucy from attic24 made it for us (well herself) and is kind enough to give us a tut on how to make them.
As always she uses cotton here and it definitely looks better than mine. I’m going to try some in bamboo but they will be floppy so might have to PVA the back .. Aaanyway.

Here is the link straight to the pattern but I HIGHLY suggest taking a look around the attic … If you haven’t already. Think about donating a cup of coffee to her if you get something out of it. I think people think she’s rich and just does this because. But she does it out of love. And she just cant help herself but share. I admire that so much.

Daffodil pattern/tut,

http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-daffodil.html

Her photo tuts are like no other. They cover EVERYTHING.

So mine need some blocking because I keep wearing them the petals are curling. Hehe. I just wanted to show you guys. Also there is a photo of the back .. See how neat everything is? Man she makes good patterns.
The trumpet part of the flower can be fiddly at first go but once you’ve done it you’ll be making more i assure you :)

THANKS LUCY!!! Thankyou for giving me a blog that is SO engaging.

You can go back through the archives and read and see in great detail all her adventures. Lucy lives in THE MOST incredible place. I mean seriously!? It’s like feary land.
It’s a bit like that here, just no canals.

K, that’s it
Get hooked!
Enjoy! xx

CLUSTER CLUTCH!! .. See what I did there?

Ok so I didn’t keep my promise. I’m the first to admit that blogging got very time consuming & I didn’t do what I promised some of you. So Apolagies for that.

I have however been very busy crocheting. And .. DESIGNING!! Had my first little go on some small things .. Now I’m designing a shawl!
Which may turn into a blanket.

Now on with the cluster stitch bag, pattern brought to us by the none other than BobWilson123 or Clare some of you may know her as.
She is up there in the top 3 best crochet Tutorialist’s. Search for her channel on YouTube, whether you’re a beginner or advanced you’ll find a pattern that you simply must do.
For beginners she is fantastic!! The way she explains everything in a very casual & not snooty way. She’s an Aussie like myself & has a very soothing voice.. A lot of people say these things not just me.

So the bag is easy peasy, bit hard on the hands cause it’s 2 strands if you want the stiffness. You can make as little or as big as you like. Mine is bigger than hers .. I thought I’d be tricky .. Oh man the amount of stitching and unraveling!!? Trying to get the proportions right and the colours. SOOO worth all the fuss cause I learnt A LOT. Yes sir-ree! Hehe.
Hope you guys have fun with it. Make it your own. As she says “it’s YOUR masterpiece” ;)

So links .. Cause my arthritis in my hands just won’t let me type for very long on my phone now .. And that’s where all the photos are! I’m too lazy to get them on laptop today. But I must get them on there cause it would make doing a couple of blogs a fortnight MUCH simpler. So this is a short review/blog

K, clutch bag tut on YouTube can be found here :

Bobwilson123’s website .. Just new and it’s fab! Practical not necessarily pretty. But you’ll have fun going through all her patterns there. A lot of them have video tuts.

Happy hooking!!!
Enjoy!

Just wanted to show off my “Knitting Nubbin”! Santuary fans will know what a Nubbin is. I don’t really know how this little diorama of sorts. I made the mushroom first, with the lid and thought I could keep something in there. Then I made a little creature .. Which was meant to be a bunny .. But no matter how many times I did the pattern this is how it came out!? Anyway I put the punk in the ears and he just came to life .. Then pin heads for eyes .. Yes where there is a will there is a way! Lol, I’m always doing prodjects without the right things so I’m forever making things out of other things! Sometimes it works .. Others don’t. 


Then another day I was rolling a little felt ball to see if this yarn would felt, and the little ball was so cute I immediately had to make something of it. So I made a knitting ball & needles .. Again from pins with the sharp end snipped off .. Still deadly sharp though .. Eek!

He is actually sitting on a circle stitched into the mushroom made from a yarn called fuzzy wuzzy .. I know how cute?
So I wanted it to look like miss and or grass. I set the cat brush on the wee little circle to fuzz it even more. 
Now it’s all glued and stitched together.
So a slow evolving prodjects that I had no intention of doing .. I love that!

So here he is my “knitting Nubbin” :)

Enjoy!
