Small stuff

Can't believe it's Wednesday already, how time flies! I've been spending some time in my craft room/cupboard... lol. It's so small, but I have all my papercrafting supplies in there and a dock for my ipod (and I can now put music on it... big step for me as I tend to be a bit technically challenged), it's quite easy to lose track of time and while away the hours. I've been doing lots of die cutting mainly to sell, just small bits and pieces like these cute teddies wrapped in their blankets.




I haven't done any scrapbooking for ages, so I plan to make a mini album to mark our couple days away during the Easter holidays. I have a new printer that my son bought me for my birthday specifically for my photos... just need to get to grips with it... seriously, I'm technically challenged!!!

I've also being doing a mini Granny Stripe blanket to go in a small dolls pram. The pram is red, so I've hooked a nice bright red blankie.



I just need to sew in the ends (tucked away in the second photo), and I think it'll look pretty with some small white crocheted flowers sewn on.

I have some new projects in mind. I'm looking forward to trying some amigurumi. These books arrived this morning



I love the small dogs, and made sure there are Chihuahuas and miniature Dachshunds in there for me to have a go at. It's so nicely presented as well, dogs sitting in baskets, on pillows and with teeny dog biscuits... I couldn't resist :) I'm just a bit nervous about following the patterns, it's very well illustrated, but I haven't followed patterns in symbols before - yikes! The other book is full of lots of little cute things too, and I think I may dip into that one first as the patterns are written, just to help build my confidence.

Ooh... this slipped in my shopping basket too. I've been looking at it for the last few months and finally gave in...


Just the tea cozy alone looks delicious, it has some gorgeous things inside from bags to blankets to a shawl, going to be a busy summer methinks!

Take care
