A couple of hats

Hi there. I know I am supposed to have made a card by now but I have been back on nights and a couple of friends asked me to make them a hat each. The great thing with crochet is that I can plonk my bum on the sofa in front of the tv with hubby and just make something at the same time.

I really love this pattern so much. I also think it would look great with a nice big turn up instead of the brim and then pop a great big pompom on the top - maybe I will make myself one like that.



The pattern is available free from Yarn Inspirations here if you want to make one for yourself. 

I have loads of hats to make for people I know so expect a few more popping up here in the next couple of weeks. Have a great weekend everyone ... see you all soon x

Help re challenges

Hi everyone, well I have been out of the card making game for quite a while but I am being tempted back into it at the moment. I have so much stash just sat in my craft room begging to be used.

Ages ago I deleted loads of stuff off my blog including a list of challenges. So I was wondering if you would like to share your favourite challenges with me. I have no idea whats out there now, I am so out of date. My cards will probably look so out of date now, I haven't bought anything new in ages. 

Please be kind as I find me way back into the land of paper crafts ..... I must admit I am quite excited. I am at work all weekend so will probably make a start on Monday colouring (attempting) an image and going from there. Today's job is to tidy my craft room and finish some jewellery.

See you all soon xxxxxxxxxxxxx

thinking about..............

making cards again

finger's crossed I can remember how to colour an image

Ninja turtle hat

Hi folks, thought I would share this hat that I have just made for my nephew .... ninja turtles are making a huge come back again so he can be warm and cool at the same time lol.



Poor little Ruby has had to model it until I can get a pic of my nephew in it - don't think she was very impressed lol 


Right, I have to dash because I am going to the ballet tonight to watch the Russian Ballet perform The Nutcracker - I am very excited :)

Be back soon, feeling all crafty again xxx

simple bridesmaid bracelet

Well, here I am just breezing in and out of blogland willy nilly. i have been away for ages - so sorry. I haven't really done any crafting at all for the past few months since I took up cycling.

Anyway, a good excuse to make a couple of bracelets. My brother in law is getting married at the weekend and they asked me to make bracelets for the younger bridesmaids. 

They are just a simple but classic deign really - nothing too fussy for young ones :)



Swaorvski Elements pearls with a Swarovski Elements crystal heart charm.

Hopefully I will be back soonish - see you all soon xxxxx

on yer bike .... and a freshwater pearl bracelet

Hi there, hope you are having a nice start to the weekend.

So something very strange has happened - I have been bitten by the cycling bug. Not a nibble but a massive great big BITE!

I have had a couple of rides out on my mountain bike this week ( 12 miles and 16 miles) and I won.t lie, the chunky tires really make it hard work.



Soooooooooooooo I have only gone and ordered a rather fabulous road bike .... just waiting to get my gorgeous new Cannondale ..... I think I am in love!



So if you are on Strava add me and we can follow each other. I am very excited about this and plan to get some serious miles in if I can.

*************

Oh yes, crafting lol ...... here is a freshwater pearl bracelet that I made for my sister to give to one of her friends as a gift.
