Little Toys

A friend asked me to crochet up a little toy for her kid and she gave me the pattern to do so. Here is what it will look like...

It's from a book called crobots.

Here is how far I am at the moment. Need to collect some of the parts!

I have also been knitting a little chef which will go inside his own donut for my mum for christmas!


He's not anywhere near finished can you tell?


Good news about the little ducky. I took him down to the local cafe to show my friend and someone there bought him off me. So I no longer have a duck in a donut! But I did get money for stash ...

Have fun :D

My fun week :)


I'm so excited! I got paid for my new job!!!!!! It was twice what I was getting paid for a lot less driving, basically better days! I also have a 7 day contract booked starting tomorrow and a promise of a contract for 1 day a week until the end of the year.

As a gift to myself for working and actually getting paid more than I was I visited Ink Circles. I bought Baroque and 99. I love these charts!

99 - Ink Circles

Baroque - Ink Circles

Once I get these charts I will be adding 99 to my rotation but I will have to hide it from Phill as I want to give it to him as a Christmas gift. Then when I finally get Sampler Aux Fleurs finished, which is getting closer each time I turn around, I will be starting Baroque. I already have the fabric I was just waiting to buy the pattern ... I know weird way to go about it.


Anyway I have been working on Sampler Aux Fleurs because it's really easy to take to school and stitch on while on lunch break or while the kids are doing individual work. I have renewed vigour with this piece because I really want to start baroque but I won't let myself yet. That and I've been enjoying how mindless it can get with no real need to change threads or colours.


Not the best pictures but you get the idea.

Top right corner

 

So I have finished an alphabet the one along the bottom with the block letters. Very exciting to finish it.

The next focus is here to finish the lace pattern.

I have also worked on Afternoon tea :D very fun!

I have been knitting too but that deserves it's own post. Will have to do that soon.

It's the Mount Gravatt Show today which is great since I am going and then my friend is coming over and we'll watch the opening ceremony while stitching. A perfect day!

WIPocalypse #7 July

To start with I would like to apologise for the awful pictures. The weather is awful today and has been awful all week and I can't seem to take a good picture. I blame only the weather not my bad photo taking skills though!

Well I have some exciting news this month. Mum finally finally finally got boxers framed! It's awesome :D






Oh and I have been very busy with afternoon tea. I am stitching over a couple of pages at the moment because I wanted to reach the gem and it was easier than stopping part way. I'm almost there.

Lots and lots of black but I am just taking it bit by bit. Not doing much at the moment I have been doing the border.

Oh and last but not least I have done some more of Jardin Prive - Sampler Aux Fleurs I do love this design and my pictures never do it justice.


I have actually been working this week, I worked 4 days this week so I have made as much money as I used to in those 4 days as I was making in a month. I also thoroughly enjoyed my job, I had one class for three days while they were waiting for their contract teacher and I got a recommendation by the other teacher I worked with to the deputy so I made a good impression.

I am thoroughly excited about this change in jobs I am much happier and less stressed though I seem to have less time for myself than I did the driving is much less!

Anyway here is my wonderful update with very bad pictures!

We have a WINNER!!!!

Using the wonderful technology called random.org I assigned numbers and out came .....

Dani - tkdchick

So if you can please get in contact with me and I will send it on as soon as possible. 

So that this post doesn't have no photos I do have a sampler aux fleurs update. 

The alphabet along the top is now finished, and so is the chair. Started the next kind of alphabet this one is blockier. I may get more done this weekend but probably not as I want to get some knitting done.



I am still enjoying working on this piece as the colours are really simple (no colour changes) and I just work piece by piece. A nice break from Afternoon Tea.

Happy Stitching.

Afternoon Tea

before I show you my afternoon tea progress I will tell you that the draw for the travelling pattern closes tomorrow the 5th July. I will then draw to see who gets the wonderful pattern :D

SO a really bad photo take from my phone in bad light, but I have actually been busy with this one I have been spanning 2 pages with the border going up to where the gem sits in the middle of the top. I really love working on this piece the colours are so rich and watching the shapes appear is fun :D

I think I will work on Sampler Aux Fleurs tonight while watching origin so expect an update tomorrow :D

Happy Stitching :D
