I’m Back!!!!!



The final assignment is handed in so I can hopefully have my life back. Crochet flower hair bobble trim.



Ive made a few bits and bobs. Apologies for these pics they are from an I Pad. I will check my camera next. I can’t remember a thing. My head has been occupied with coursework so my hands did little things to keep sane. 3-6 month hat and bootie set.




The African violets are from daughter’s Peru alpaca yarn. The surround from Finnish wool. A real multicultural piece.




10 small red collars




10 small red leads.




10 small blue collars.




10 small blue leads




You can can see the size difference here between the collar types. Above are the 10 big red collars while the small red ones are being made.




10 large red leads




10 large green collars




10 large green leads.




This is one is for a spaniel called Lucy in need of a forever home. Little red lead with dotty red collar.

This course has been the worst one yet. I am so glad it is the last. Hopefully I can have my blog life back again. That would be fun. I NEED some fun again. So how are you all? I’ll do a big catch up with you tomorrow.

    It almost looks like you have started a home industry plant making dog things. I can see why you long for making lovely things too again! The baby set, hair trim and African Violets are a nice beginning. Congratulations on finishing the academic work!
