Do you like earrings? Do you like roses?
I like both of them! So I made some rose earrings.
It actually took me heaps longer to try to take decent pictures of the earrings
than it took me to crochet them! I better figure out how to use my fancy camera.
What do you think? Would you wear them?
Blue against clouds, is peace…
A yarn parcel from Japan! And the week was shaping up to be quite miserable. I also made it to the Preston Spotlight and scored organic cotton for $3 a bag! Off to play…
In my previous post I was asking you to guess what I was up to. Well sometimes my (great and whimsical) ideas don’t really translate into reality. So my little tapestrybroochesmadeoutofopshopmaterials was a big fail! Big BIG fail.
And I wonder if it is very clever to say it out loud on the internet for everyone to hear (read). But we live and learn, right? Right!
I’ve done some happier and more satisfying crafting too. Made a little amigurumi crochet toy for the baby. I thought a little crochet doggy would be ace as we can’t take Max everywhere with us. I so wish we could!
Say hello to Mini-Max. At first ‘real’ Max wasn’t that impressed with ‘imitation’ Max. Pah what a a purple coloured show-off, grumbled Max and jumped into the picture.
See Max reckons that pictures with him in them are way cooler and cuter and so much better in every way.
In the end they made friends and settled for a group picture. This was after Max realised he doesn’t have to share his snacks with the new comer.In Finland we call pictures like this friend picture. Can’t think of the equivalent in English now!
Aisha, Max and Mini-Max
P.s. My favourite swear word is a Finnish swear word perkele. It’s not deemed to be too offensive and I like the way you can role the R for extra dramatic effect (peRRRRRRRkele). Perkele actually used to be an old pagan god. The god of thunderstorms and such. When Christianity swept through Finland Perkele morphed into meaning Satan. But it is rarely used in that context anymore either. More likely are you to hear perkele when someone hits their toe or jabs themselves or in my case when I suddenly get upset at something.
These are the business cards we’ll be bringing to the next market. ^_^
Hopefully I’ll have some upcycled/recycled goodies to show you in a few days!
Kisses to you.
