What I need most of all is colour,
Hello there beautiful people!! So nice to catch up with you all. At this time of year I go underground a little with my projects....they turn into secretive things. Show time is almost upon me and I always want my show items to be a surprise to everyone. I will tell you that colour always soothes my soul and I have been enjoying it, experimenting with it and loving it. That is all I will say. 😊
I have been making props and posting on our Face book page to encourage our community to enter and below is one of the props I used to encourage people to enter in the crochet section at the show. My love of colour (and Italy) has seeped through into my prop. My fingers are crossed that more people enter. What are your shows like? I would love to hear from any of you or I would love to see photos of what the people in your area enter in to the show.
Just to crack you all up, I share with you a project I was commissioned at the last market day. "Could you please make me......2 rats sweaters please?" Then the lady lost it and laughed, though she was serious. Yes, it could only happen to me right? So these funny little motley tubes below are her pet rat's coats.
They are about 4 inches long and very easy to make. I found a free pattern on Pinterest.💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜💙💚💛💜
Oh bless his cotton socks.....Milo is having a nap.
The next few projects I share with you are some that have kept me busy in between show entries. I wanted to try this flower pattern for ages because I am learning more and more about crochet. So pleased at how it's turned out. Very full and big. I am loving the different patterns available to make all sorts of flowers in the crochet world. I have always been a knitter and I will always love knitting, so I will not be stopping that any time soon.
Here is a set I have made for an indigenous lady in town. There is so little made here that represents the indigenous people, and here I try to come up with some ideas to encourage others to make things. Again, along come the crocheted flowers to join in with my campaign. I have knitted a cowl, a scarf, woolly hat and gloves, all in black but added the red and yellow flowers to make up the colours that represent our indigenous people. They have now gone to their new home.🍒
Never can I have enough of making woolly hats. Some that turn into ninja turtles or those that stay very normal.😂😂 (That sounds funny coming from me).
Well my friends, it is time for me to go. It is now getting to mid afternoon and before I know it my Sunday will be gone. If any of you out there in blog world have any photos of their town's annual show, preferably in the pavilion section, please let me know. I would love to receive any ideas to enhance our own show. Even if it is a list of classes you have in the Needlework or Craft work Sections of your shows. I would love to hear from you.
