It's here!

I got my prize from The Weird Scissors blog!  It's one of the projects they featured earlier in the month.  So cute!!!

I've photographed more of my work,  so I'm hoping to make the second half of the month a clean sweep.  Until tomorrow,  feast your eyes on this lovely bit of Halloween cute that I got from France. :) and for more of the same,  check out http://theweirdscissors.blogspot.fr ... lots of great stuff on there!!

Making excuses

I didn't make it a perfect 31 day October.   I must call in sick.  Migraine has struck me down and this one lasted 3 days.

I'll be back into it when my health allows.

Tatting- a selection.

Tatting is one of the most recent things I've picked up.  I saw a friend doing it at the crafty cafe and I knew I had to give it a try.  This is a small selection of things I've pinned out so they keep their shape.  They are experiments.  Some turned out great, some didn't. 

And so it continues.

Granny Rows in Blue

Today I attended the crafty cafe at The Vintage Dove as I always do.  This past week I have been finishing off bits and pieces. The kitty cat blanket is done and now the back of a pillow for my girl's room is well on its way to being completed.  I stayed at the crafty cafe for an hour longer than everyone else and I must go now!  If you read yesterday's post you'll know I have a website to rebuild too.  It will be nice to have this finished though.

Hey, thanks, Bex!!!



This photo has nothing to do with the title.   Just thought I'd let you know.

I'm just making some notes because I decided to blow apart my website and start fresh.  So there's nothing there at the moment.  All I have are place fillers and a notebook full of to-do's.  Joy.

But let's get to the title.  It appears that by leaving a comment on The Weird Scissors blog (also part of blogtoberfest 2014) I have won something!!!!  As I'm not sure whether the prize was mentioned or what it was if it was mentioned, I have a surprise coming my way from France!  Woo-hoo!!!

So I'd like to thank Bex and everyone at The Weird Scissors for... whatever it may be!

Quote of the Day...



This quote gave me pause today for many reasons.  I don't want to taint what thoughts may enter your minds by cluttering them with mine.  You're Welcome.

Yarny Experiment

Last weekend I bought some flower looms.  You wind the yarn around it, make a few stitches and twist the handle and a flower pops off.  It's old tech... The brand name ones were called knit - wit.

Anyway, I made one of the square flowers as the base of a crochet square and this happened.

A series of accidents that I just couldn't give up on has given way to a textured square that in all likelihood I have no hope of repeating.  Maybe I will come close in future.  I'll certainly be trying again.
