my creative space



I have so many little things on the go right now but somehow I just keep adding to the list. I'm in total agreement to Holly Hobbie, yes indeed happiness is found in the little things, so beside Holly these little things are indeed making me happy.



I've been doing a little bit of t-shirt painting and pixie making but I'll share those pics when they're with their recipients. There's been a little bit of dress making, quilt hand sewing, knitting and my latest obsession, crochet of ye old granny square. I must admit that it took me a bit to figure out the crochet thing. First, I checked out the instructions in a prominent new crafting book but it was a bit gobbly gook to me, then I tried clever knitting extraordinaire sis but learning from a lefty was too hard, then you-tube..no luck, but then I went back to my crafting roots and got good old mum to show me, and voila...I got it. With the help of a little book she lent me I'm now churning out grannies and even eyeing off other crochet variations. Next amigurumi...am I dreaming????



Other little things making me happy are these little Heather Bailey finds from Spotlight. Who would have thought it! Admittedly they are scrapbooking supplies and I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them, but I love them just the same.



My little cooking mate makes me happy, how could he not! His missing his school girl sis terribly so we spend a lot more time doing stuff.



And of course this little miss always makes me happy. Snuggled close 24/7, My crafting companion.

more craftiness and a very cute thermos which I would love, over at Kirsty's

Oh, if you can do granny squares, you can do Amigurumi. All you need to know is single crochet and have a good stitch marker so you can track your rounds. I have had a hankering to start some granny squares myself. Some day, when I have a second to myself. ;)

Looks like you are getting that crochet down...I am a lefty and had a horrible time trying to teach a friend so I know what you mean..

Have always been a big fan of Holly Hobby too!!!

You have got lots on the go...just the way I like it.

I too love those owls....and I'm a sucker for a sleeping baby and a toddler in the kitchen - what lovely locks!

Cute crochet, I am happy that I can do it now too. Don't think I will be tackling amigurumi for some time - I don't think I can even spell it! Look forward to seeing more of your work.

I LOVE to crochet and I think you would do fine with Ami, you just need to watch your tension :)

I also realised I did not let you know the wonderful sheet set arrived, THANKYOU again :D
