our creative space
Making lots of squares of different crotchet stitches to experiement and send off for little thank you gifts. They are meant to be dishcloths. I really got into the groove with these pretty patterns and just wanted to keep going but ran out of cotton. I had the idea of making a longer version and ending up with a neck warmer. Have been matching up with some vintage buttons. Yesterday found some Amy Butler wool/cotton blend in a lovely lavender colour and have nearly finished one ball. Maybe even learn how to make a flower corsage to sew onto it? Love learning this new skill.
Dada has finished his handmade mallet from the Sturt School of Wood. The head is made of Merbau and the handle is made of Jarra. Now he is starting a small box. He has hinted maybe a box for my beads that are all over the dresser?
