Crafting wise, I've got my new etsy shop open now and am trying to get little bits made and onto.
What do you all think to the latest batch of shiney happy crochet?
I'm currently working on a few of the started and not yet finished projects from 2010. Thus far I have;
- A baby blanket
- Set of wristwarmers
- A super huge oddment blanket
- Stylecraft baby blanket
- Tia's wristwarmers and birthday hat
- Captain America Shield
- Baby Granny Slippers
To aid with the massize mission of keeping things organised and only working on the projects, I went on a mission on Monday? No, Tuesday (Sorry lack of sleep does nothing for my pants memory). I went on a mission to find me a wicker basket for under £10 from the local rescue / recycling shop.
So, off I waltzed happily down town, saw my younger sister and her boyfriend (6 months together now, naww) and went to the recycling shop. While noseying around, I eyed up this beaut;
I looked inside, around it, and gave it a squeeze. Finally, came to a decision with the help of Katie (my sister) that I should find out the cost. "£3" the nice lady said. To which I hoped and skipped to the bank to draw some fresh dosh out.
When I skipped back, I found these two little pretties;
The tulip wooden ornament I bought mainly for Paul because he loves tulips (so bought him some crimson tulips from Sainsbury's today for £2.99). Then decided that a new(ish) purse was in order. And giddily walked to the till with happiness at my soon to be new additions to the growing clutter in our flat.
£3 for 3 items! How lucky was I?! Bloody chuffed is more like it!!
Also new purchses wise, I have being sent to me;
- Merlin 4ply Handspun Yarn from Wild Fire Fibres
- Handspun Merino in "Sweet Dreams" by VickeVira
- Tiny Sterling Silver Leaf Ring & Tigers Eye Stackable Ring from Scape on Etsy.
I am going to return to crochetting, and maybe having a cup of tea and medicine. Hope you are all well, and try not to catch "the dreaded lurgy"! x
