Thank you everyone for your kind comments and advice on my last post. I have taken on board some suggestions that will make the steel behemoth a bit prettier...
I had in my stash a little flower and a leaf I use for teaching, and a magnet from my art supplies.
A little glue, a little patience and ta-dah! Instant prettiness.
Doesn’t she look sweet on the corner of the fridge? I just love this, thank you for the inspiration! She’s looking a little lonely, though...a small bouquet in the corner or a lush garland of flora and fauna trailing along the top and down the sides? Have your say, please...
In other crochet news, Miss Mouse went to pre-school with Little Flower today. The class was celebrating World Book Day, and the children dressed as their favourite book characters and brought in their books to share. Her favourite at the moment is Two Bad Mice by Beatrix Potter. She went dressed as Hunca Munca and took Miss Mouse dressed as the little mouse baby. Sweet!
And now some crochet eye candy:
Mmmm-mmmm!!! I wish I could say all this yummy yarn is mine, but I actually am organising a group project for my monthly Crochet Clinic, and this is the bulk order for the crochet gang. At the last meeting, someone asked about mandalas, referring to one in Simply Crochet magazine. This got the attention of others, and before we knew it we were sharing mandala patterns and planning a big mandala making evening.
We are working with three patterns, and once everyone made their pattern choice, they emailed me their yarn colours. I made a big order from Wool Warehouse, which came the next day. So now I have to be patient and wait until the 17th to share this out with the group and get everyone started...but surely I’ll have to make one of each type before them as an example, right? Can’t just let that poor yarn sit quietly in the corner.
