Butterfly wings


 
Four days from her fifth birthday, Laney asks "Pweeze Mumma, can I have butterfly wings for my birthday. I want to fly like a butterfly." How can I refuse such a cute request!

Tapestry Crochet

I'd never tried tapestry crochet before, so after stumbling on this cute pattern I thought I'd give it a try but as you can see from the original pattern I umm... well, I didn't finish it. Turns out attempting tapestry crochet for the first time with old scratchy yarn just isn't my thing!

The Big Project Bag Swap, Australia.



Do you use project bags for your craft projects?  I sure do and you know what, I wish I had bigger ones! All the projects that I'm knitting & crocheting at the moment seem to be at minimum of 4 balls and all my project bags are way too small!

I knitted lace. 
Chunky lace but hey it's still lace!

Stripey Fingerless Gloves

 

I remember as a kid, my Dad used to say "if you hold Marie's hand she'll walk forever with you" … I think the same goes for Laney except now that it's mid winter, those little hands are getting super cold, so the solution was to make her some gloves.

Pie Time crochet van ....and my own errata for the pattern!

 
 Confession: I crocheted this van for my son last year and wanted to see how he used it before doing a Show & Tell on my blog!

Wedgies for Joe


I just finished crocheting this cushion for Joe and he loves it!
This pattern was from a designer called '10 Hours or Less', so I of course, kept track of how long it took to make.
