Hello my lovely friends
I made this
Oh yes, I really did.
A cosy case for my phone
A couple of weeks ago the fabulous Heather
made a tutorial for this cute little phone case
I fell in love with the sweet ones that she'd made
crochet and cross stitch ..... whats not to love?
Now my crochet skills are a little rusty
and I still consider myself a beginner
but Heather's instructions made it Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
Thank you Heather
you are wondrous
after my initial success I REALLY wanted to make another
I bet you can't guess who this one's for?
as I said before my crochet skills are very rusty
but I REALLY wanted to give Sweet Bee's case some little wings.
I found a pattern for a flower petal in one of my (way too many) craft books
gosh, it involved single, double, half double, half treble .....
all in all ..... a bit scary
not to be deterred
I googled YouTube videos for all the different stitches
(thank you kind people who make these videos x)
I ended up with almost a million windows open
It got a bit messy ..... but I got there in the end.
As a swap for poached eggs on toast
Mr Sweet put my beloved flower shelf back up at the weekend
I have missed it so
Allium Nectaroscordum bulgaricum
Isn't it sensational?
you really need to look up at it to see all of its astonishing beauty
I rescued some pretty blooms from the rain today .....
is it ever going to stop I wonder?
it's been so SO grey
I really LOVE rain but I think we've had enough now ~ thank you very much.
I've been in my sewing room most of the time recently
it's cosy in there
(and I have treats in my desk drawer)
I've been stitching up teacher gifts
I can't believe it's that time of year again.
I made some teacher supply pockets last year and they went down a storm
I like to change it up a bit ..... get bored easily
so this year I came up with a slightly different design
in three juicy apple varieties .....
So if your little one has a special teacher who deserves a lovely gift
personalised especially of course
maybe this could be what you're looking for
just choose your favourite variety
A Fresh Granny Smith
A Juicy Red Delicious
A Luscious Pink Lady
