The older I get the faster time goes by, is it because we do less in a day than we used to?
These three were completed last night. The necklace is a princess length, large-ish open chain with a collection of heart charms and little glass beads. The orange and grey beads are from Glass and Fire www.glassandfire.co za, they are strung with unglazed ceramic beads. The 3rd one has one of the curved tubular glass beads that I found at Moonfull Crystals www.moonful-crystals.co.za.
I've always wanted to be able to crochet, my sister Glynis gave me some lessons in April 2012. After buying two books on how to crochet, I set out to make a blanket. Yip! nothing like diving in at the deep end. The blanket is now 2m by 2.2m. I just need to do the border and it's ready for our bed this winter. It's been so hot these last two months that there was no way I could sit with this on my lap doing the edging. So I started.....
this blanket. Sort of retro/nostalgic/granny colours. I got the tutorial from The Royal Sisters blog, www.theroyalsisters.blogspot.com
Lindy, my sister found this pattern in a crochet book. She can't crochet and thought this would be a good place to start. I find granny squares easier. Below my wonky cushion which was to be Lindy's birthday present. Hmm, not so sure now!
It is being made with love, I just wish it wasn't so wonky.
If I'm posting pics youv'e seen before, please forgive me but after so long I have no idea what's posted already, although I try and check, I don't always remember when it comes to posting. I've got to get a system going for my pics file.
Bought these two from a roadside vendor last week. Just loved them. They are made from Jakaranda wood and the vendor carved them himself. They now stand in my studio window. I must check with Bevan if I should put some furniture wax on them. Worried they'll discolour though.
Have to go now. Hopefully more tomorrow.
