my creative space

I have this very lovely wool from the very lovely Bendigo Woollen Mills. Hmm, what to do with it?
I was thinking that I might have a go at a crochet version of Leonie's wrap, but my bust is significantly larger than her pattern, so I am wondering if I will have enough wool. Perhaps I will just keep taking more lovely photo's of it instead.

Orange is just so wonderful and warm and sunny, don't you think?

My Creative Place

This week I finally finished my little blue hat and I am so so pleased with the result. It is perhaps a little bigger than I envisaged, but at least it is not too small. This was such an easy pattern, I think there will be many more of these hats to come. And I loved how the little swirl worked on the side, my own personal touch.

I am not quite so pleased with this second hat. I'm usually pretty good at 'winging it' with my projects, but this one just doesn't seem to have come together. You see, I ran out of pink cotton, and of course it is a discontinued colour, so I thought I would just make it a bit stripy, a bit different. But I don't know. What do you think? It's all a little bit surfie for me. Fine for my teenage niece perhaps, but somehow a little wrong for a teeny weeny baby.

My Creative Space

I love babies. My own babies and my friends babies. Only after having children of my own did I discover the magic of these tiny bundles of joy. Before children I was completely unaware of what snuggly beautiful innocence they represent. I couldn't understand it in the slightest. Little kids, sure they were cute, liked them. Babies, well I didn't get it. Thankfully I do now.

Having re-learnt the craft of crochet after my babies have grown into little people, I now relish in the opportunity to crochet for other peoples babies.

One of my very lovely friends has just been blessed with twins. Oh dear. At least it's double the love as well, and double the crochet.

Of course this is what I should be doing! Does anyone else live like this? Or is it just me. Everyone else out here seems to be prolific in their crafting, and have time to set up beautiful photo's, and seem to do lots of wonderful things with their kids as well.

On another note, here is our other creative project. Looking like it's not going to meet our September deadline. Oh well.

Eloise and I are feeling a little sad today, because it appears we have lost her (and mine) favourite dress. It was so bright and lovely, and warm. I'll have to try and make another one, but it will never be the same.

It appears that I am as erratic as ever today. Just love this lovely, blurry, wintery photo.
