Mama crafts. (including season swap gift)
Unfortunately, I haven't got photos of the pen and inks, I forgot to take some, and sent the portraits off to the mama who asked for them - and bloody royal mail has lost em. :-( Gutted. Mind again, I wasn't overly happy, so I do get to have another go; although slightly worried, I have this thing with portraits that once I get a good likeness, I find it diffcult to do it again.... so fingers crossed I can do justice to the little girl being inked!
I've also made lots of Ostara eggs for the season table, but that's just my usual pattern. I am currently playing with covers for jars to turn them into vases and also as t-light jars too. I have a stack of flowers I've made too, but that is for a larger project that I'll "Ta-Daaah" later when complete.
And the granny stripe, well almost there, not far before the edging marathon begins and then another Taa Daah post... oooh and I'm crocheting Rye a jumper too, which may not work as I'm having to convert the pattern from using an aran wool to a DK... and maths isn't my strong part... mind so long its a bit too big that's fine, its if it's too small that I have a problem lol.
Oooh and a friend has been dropping hints about the Japanese motif flower scarf/shawl Lucy over at Attic 24 has Ta-Daaah'd recently. So I may well be doing that too - or something similar as I'm not sure I really want to buy the book... maybe dunno, we'll see.
Anyway, it's earth hour nearly, so excuse me while I go and turn the lights off and light the candles. :-)
