Having said last week that Spring had sprung this weekend has been f-f-f-r-r-r-e-e-e-e-zing. Best spend the day in the warm with copious amounts of tea and a small (ie I have a chance of finishing it) craft project.
So what is on the kitchen table this week? Having a giddy flash-back to ‘Play School’ … what is through the …. round window? (I always wanted the round window). Enough of the 1960s back to the kitchen table:
Time to set about a wee bit of crochet inspired by “Boho Crochet” edited by Merinke Slump until
I have two half orbs. Then only a few stitches follow and …
voila! a bauble
with all it’s playful possibilities. Sparkle-y yarns for celebrations and your favourite colours for interiors … all worked in a trice.
Infact it was finished too quickly. The great outdoors is still less than inviting so it is back to ….
the sock-a-thon. Which as a dedicated woolly crafter I am doomed I mean duty-bound to complete.
What crafts have kept you busy this weekend? and who remembers Gonks?
Until next we meet, Moke x
Love the bauble idea, how cute would that be at Christmas to have a treeful! Oh yes, I remember gonks, mine had bright green hair 🙂
I loved Humpty! I thought the baubles might also sell well at craft fares as they use up bits and bobs of yarn and make up so quickly. Moke xx
I’m determined to get around to making some baubles this year. Don’t remember Gonks but Hamble and Jemima were my favourites on Playschool – I love a rag doll:)
They are the easiest things. I bet you knew this but I was surprised. Definitely one for using up scraps while on the bus. I had forgotten Hamble. I remember liking her name, I wonder what the story behind it was? Hope you and the family are well. Moke xx
