slow going on the crochet front.

Had a quiet month on the crochet front, made a couple of commission pieces
one was a floor play mat in greys and whites

002
the other was a baby star blanket
which was a secret gift for a friend
and then...
I decided to learn another new technique
join as you go making motifs
so I searched for ages to find one I liked

I picked this one

001
joined a few together
002

I re worked the centre pieces and added the edge half motifs and
ta darrrrrrrrr



its very light weight and lacy,
perfect for a christening shawl!

this week I learnt a new technique!

this week I taught myself a new crochet technique
I have always wanted to attempt crochet tapestry or intarsia crochet
but was put off as its an advanced technique and requires a fair bit of practice!
I used the video tutorial by beth ham on you tube to produce a tiny piece first
then sound a chart I thought I could attempt
here is the finished item
it will be a cushion front

001

I used graph paper to create a back that I am working on now! :)

crocheted toys....

I don't make a lot of toys
I find them quite a challenge, never sure if I stuff them properly
and find sewing all the little components together a bit of a fiddle
but I was asked to make a couple this month
so I made
