Some More Goodies

Here are some more recent makes that I wanted to show you:

My latest handbag, I love the colours of this one!

I said I would show you what is in the bag:

And here it all is! If I am not crocheting bags or blankets, I am going through this book and doing all the granny squares.  It is for a reason, but you will have to wait and see what reason later!

Everything back together again!

 have just finished this shawlette - a very simple crochet loop pattern - now i just have to add the fringe.

Crazy Queensland Weather!

Well, we have survived the storm and the cyclone, and now we are back on line.  The rivers are receding again and things are getting back to normal.

Just a couple of photographs from my other blog, to show what it has been like around us!

If you fancy a look over their, the pics are explained...

It's Raining!!!

We have had so little rain for so long, now it is here thanks to the cyclone up North. We should receive between 2 and 300 mm tonight tomorrow and Sunday!

The garden is alive and just so happy!

Sorry, no crochet tonight I'm afraid, we are just too excited about the rain.
Will show some crochet tomorrow of course!

Some More Goodies!

Still updating what I have done prior to starting this blog up - won't possibly be able to list everything, but these are the recent items!

Let's start with the front and back of a cushion I crocheted for our Bali Hut outside:

A purple handbag, I'm still madly making special flowers and things to hang on it!

One of my project bags, I'll show you what is in this one tomorrow!

A cute little girl's handbag that I have made for my friends grand daughter.  I hope she likes it!

I'm currently working on buttons to my Facebook and Pinterest, as well as some other bits for this site, but it is taking time, and I thought "What the heck, why not launch it and finish things later".

So I did!

Catch Up No 1

Just trying to catch you up on things I have done lately, so you know what's happening!

This handbag I made this month, from a granny square that I love doing, and some flowers and twirlies I made up!

Some wonderful easy gift bags that I am doing this year for Christmas, I think the pattern is by "Jen Spears", please forgive me if I'm wrong, I'll try to find the pattern and let you know.

Lots more to come, can't overwhelm you all at once!!

My Scrumble

Here is the scrumble that I completed at the Prudence Mapstone Weekend - I'm not sure if I will do more in the same colour way because it is so pretty, or if it will become a part of my scrumbled knitting bag.

I love the colours and the stitches are merely single and double crochets, in various assortments, as well as assorted yarns.

Had a simply wonderful weekend and learned so much!
Some photographs from the time:

I just love Prudence Mapstone, she teaches so well and explains things beautifully.
Tomorrow I will put up some more pieces .
