Tutorial Tuesday-Amigurumi Accessories

As you may know (since I’ve posted so many photos of them!) I’m making a lot of amigurumi snowman/lady baubles for a craft fair using a free pattern from amigurumi bb.

17 For 2017-October Update

October was a funny old month that seems to have literally flown by. It held sickness, worry, new job prospects and a handful of birthdays so I guess there’s little wonder it felt like a short month, despite it’s 31 days. 17 cupboards/drawers/storage areas sorted (17) I have tackled some of the areas from earlier…… Continue reading 17 For 2017-October Update

WIP Wednesday-11th October

It’s been another crochet week, including a ‘just for fun’ project I’d been meaning to try. I haven’t been terribly productive as I’ve been at work a lot, but even so, some progress has been made. I’ll start with the ‘business’ project. It’s another pair of slippers, this time for a man. I agreed to…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-11th October
