Saving the world, one crafty thing at a time



Mother’s Day

So, for weeks now I have been working on a gift for my mother for mother’s day. I decided on a centre piece for her living room wall and this is what I came up with…



It is a series of doily chart patterns found on the images section of Google. So a massive shout out to all those talented people that can write patterns and charts for others to use. Thank you! It stands at 39.5″ x 23.5″ in size and it became mixed media when I had to fill spaces (which was before I finished all the doilies hahaha).

There is beading, crochet, paper flowers, gem stones and I was very much tempted to cover the thing in glitter….everyone loves glitter, especially the mess it makes xD…







It’s not the best lighting but I had to take pictures. The colours work with my mums colour scheme, with the wood in her room and the silver/chrome work through the use of the gems. Its a mixture of cotton thread and cur change (very thin) dk and a range of hook sizes…….

….so now this is done and dusted and in time for mother’s day (finishing in the day still counts haha). Onto the next project.

Guardian Angels

This was a Christmas gift I did. Five tiny guardian angels. The pattern is free and is by Av Camilla at Crochetmillan. I used crochet thread and the 2.25mm hook suggested and they turned out a couple of inches each.


I added the loop for hanging at the very beginning using the tail end from the start so having a longer tail then usual and tidying away but not pulling it all the way through, finishing with a tiny knit to keep it secure.

They feel so delicate but I think they are beautiful and so fun to make.

Merry Christmas and all that jazz

Its that time of year again where there is so much mess, chaos and noise that you can’t think straight and start wondering if you’ve burnt the food for the first time all year – Christmas day. The glory of our so much celebrated holiday. Its been a dreary day where I live, along with all the chaos and running around just like that turkey in the over…headless…ah but we’ve survived and alas, the house is silent and a well warned rest with hook or needles and some tasty, tasty yarn can be had. Which is exactly what I’ve been doing.


Today I picked Sophie back up. Oh how I’ve missed her…remind me not to put her down again until I’m done. I ha e also been working on other projects, as you all know most recently I completed an evil minion commission and then started the kitty cat tote. Well in good old fashioned me style, I’ve also started another minion blanket but this time its a regular yellow one made in squares to look like a retro 8 bit gaming character. Once I have some more done I will show you all some photos. However, back to Sophie for a little while longer this evening.

All happy season greetings and whatnot to those who prefer yarn over….well, most things really haha.

Kitty Cat Large Tote Bag

Started my next commission which is, clearly a large tote. This is a pattern by The Perfect Knot. Its working up fairly quick, even if I’ve only just started I expect it to be finished soon. I’ve also decided to line the bag just before o are the while thing together to avoid things slipping through the holes.


I’ve changed the colour scheme to include dark purple, black and light purple instead of the suggested bright pink, light pink and white. Just completing number 6 (showing 5) out of 48, with only two more being multicoloured, so super quick it should be from that point.

I may also customise it slightly as the cat applique is not wanted so may add something special instead of. Just for that extra something.
