Busy, busy, busy...

I've been so busy lately - spending around 7 hours every day working on new projects to put up for sale on my Etsy shop...
Today, I decided I needed something for ME! I came up with this:

Believe it or not, these poor flowers had been sitting for several days in an old, unadorned coffee jar! They look so much better now!

The mini flowers are from this blog:


Lauren is kind enough to offer this pattern on her blog for free! I'm not the fastest crocheter in the world, but even I made 10 in no time!
Lauren's instructions are very easy to follow too!

So, I said in my last post that I would probably show you some unfinished projects... Here's a few to give you an idea of what I get up to!

This is going to be the perfect ripple afghan for me... Spice, green, brown, mustard... heavenly!

I'm working on this crocheted sweater... I have been for quite some time, on and off...
But the back is complete:

As is the front:

I'm also working on knitting this:

Again, I've done the back and the front. They are pretty rumpled and will need some serious blocking once the sleeves are done... So here's a close up of the cable detail which is on both the front and the back (you'll get an idea of the colour too):

  And do you remember this:

Well, it now looks like this:

Hope you can see the difference!

Ok, blogger has gone a little crazy, so I'm going to have to publish this and come back later...

Everything went all blurry on me, just as I was about to end. Oh well! Here's the end bit:

I managed to get several items finished for Etsy this week (visit my Etsy shop to see what's new!), despite several mishaps and near disasters.

Lesson learned: If at first you don't succeed - go away and think about it a bit before trying again!


  1. Wow, you have been busy. I love the cabling on the jumper.
    Love from Mum

    1. Thanks, Mum! I still need to work on my photography, but I'm glad the cable picture was clear enough! I really fell in love with this sweater... Really must take some time to work on it!


  2. I love the way the cables on that top form such soft gathers. Hope you manage to get it finished.
