Busy Busy Crafting

I can't believe I haven't posted in so long. The weeks have gotten away from me with working overtime (boo!!) But now I am on holiday for a week and looking forward to getting lots of crafty stuff done.

So I've been up to few crafty things. I was commissioned to crochet a circle cardigan. I really enjoy this pattern. It's going to be a gift and I can't wait to hear what they think of it.

I whipped up a slouchy hat to sell on Maggie Makes Stuff. 
I've been playing with Tunisian crochet recently. I love that the colour changes are so sharp and it's so easy. I would fully recommend giving it a go.

I whipped up some gloves to sell on Maggie Makes Stuff I knitted them flat and sewed up the side so they were super quick to make and I enjoyed messing around with the buttons.

And last but not least, I have been meaning to make this wreath for quite some time. I have so much of this fuzzy yarn left that any suggestions on how to use it up would be wonderful. I used a book that i got for Christmas to get the patterns for the flowers and leaves and I love how cute it has turned out.
Well as I have a week off I'm going to make a list of all of the crafty things I could get up to while I am off:

  1. Finish making lime vodka (birthday present for lime crazy friend)
  2. Bake for Mothers day
  3. Make more of the hexagon Patchwork 
  4. Use Hexi Puffs to make seat pads
  5. Have a go at free motion embroidery
  6. Make progress on socks for beloved
  7. Make progress on shawl
  8. Recycle old sheets into knitted/crocheted stuff. 
Well it may be a little ambitious but lets see how I get on :)
