Winter Warmers…

Yes it’s that time of year for warming wraps, snuggly scarves and socks, socks, socks, for winter chills are lurking just around the corner. As you can see, I finished my rather gorgeous shawl knitted from a Knitting Magazine lace pattern, using Papatya cake yarn in autumnal shades and I just adore it (muchly). Remember that lovely green shawl I was crocheting from Simply Crochet magazine? Well dear reader, you’ll be pleased to know it turned out to be just as soft and sumptuous as everything else I’ve made using James C. Bett’s ‘Misty’ yarn;see for yourself…

Still on the warming wraps theme, I knitted up a simple scarf in garter stitch for my darling daughter, using blocks of her favourite autumn jewel colours of Stylecraft dk yarn: gold, copper, graphite petrol and burgundy…

And so to socks, for as you know dear reader, I always have a pair of socks on the go, this time I’m using a dk super-soft yarn by King Cole called ‘Sprite’ in a Capri shade, although I think the colours of dark navy, purple, pink and green remind me so much of the northern lights that I think it should have been called Aurora…

In my capacity as freelance Christmas toy elf for Santa, I have once again been crafting up a few cuddly creatures for Christmas gifts for tiny munchkins out there. You’ll be excited to know that I have a new crocheted creature to introduce to you: Felix the Fox…

Isn’t he just the cutest in his jolly green jumper? I also crocheted another mouse toy but altered the sizing so that it turned out a rather pretty-petite half the size of my usual mouse toy…

I know, she’s just too delightful for words isn’t she? Of course I just had to craft up another cheeky monkey…

And yes he’s already been up to his usual tricks…

Ooh monkey you are such a cheeky chimp! Well, that’s all my crafty creations for this time dear reader. I’ll leave you with a few of my favourite autumnal pics from my recent wanderings and remember: keep on crafting…

Having a Whale of a Time!

Whale hello there dear reader! How are things with you, my craft-loving chum? As you can see I have a new creature creation: a fabric whale sewn from my own pattern. Alas I no longer have the gorgeous grey whale pictured in all his glory floating above, for he was sold at my last craft sale (farewell my fishy friend) but I am sure he has gone to a cuddlesome-cosy and hugful home♡ Yes I had a fab time at my craft sale dear reader, thank you for asking, as I sold oodles of my makeriness to lots of lovely, craft-loving customers (bless them all). Want to see some pics of my crafty offerings on show? Thought so…

Aren’t they simply adorable? I have also hooked up some pretty-in-pink and blue-for-a-boy baby shoes, in 100% cotton yarn for dainty feet…

Do you remember the trio of unicorns I was crocheting for my friend’s triplet girlies? Well I managed to finish them in time for Santa to nestle into a spare spot on his sleigh, all ready for the big day, and here they are…

Mummy-of-triplet-girlies was very pleased with them as was Santa, as he could do with a bit of unicorn magic to help his sleigh fly that little bit faster you know *☆*☆*☆*

Talking of flying sleighs, I’ve been pattern designing again, this time a little Rudolph Christmas tree decoration, complete with jingly-jangly bell dear reader, such fun!

And then my pattern designing turned to felt; first for a trio of foxy-fab felt brooches, complete with girly blushes…

…of which I will definately be keeping one for me-myself-and-I! The same goes for the crazy camper van felt key charms I designed, but which colour should I choose? Decisions, decisions dear reader…

Just love camper vans♡ I used to own a blue VW camper which had a rather jolly red and white striped push-up roof…aaah, sweet memories… And still on the retro theme, I completed my cloud cushion sewn from vintage fabric, with hand-embroidered ‘Daydream Believer’ wording and detailing, as well as felt and crocheted flowers with beads and buttons…

IMG_20141109_122824

Phew! Now that’s a whole load of makeriness indeed, dear reader. Am I resting my head on my hippy-chick cloud cushion I hear you ask? No, definately not reader chum, for darling daughter is in need of a cosy-cuddly-cowl so my needles are hastily click-clacking away with some rather lovely powder blue chunky yarn. I will leave you with a work-in-progress pic, complete with a little festive snow globe to get you into the seasonal spirit *☆*☆*☆*keep crafting…
