The work goes on....

With endless problems raising their head in the day job and all those other things that life throws in the way, crafting has unfortunately taken a bit of a back seat, but the creativity has never stopped, the work has still been continued even though its slowly but surely!
Firstly, ive still be knitting away in my spare moments and thankfully its something that i find very relaxing.
At the moment on my needles is a pink scarf, in a lace pattern. The only problem i have, as i'm knitting in the evenings in front of the television, is i'm getting distracted and keep forgetting which row of the pattern i'm on!

Susan has got up-to-date with completing the embellishments on my previous scarves. So my black fluffy scarf now has marabou feathers around the edges
The blue 'wave' scarf has blue/clear beading across the bottom waves to add a touch of sparkle and glamour.

And the big cable - small button scarf now has the colourful wooden buttons to embellish the cables.

I also have a new project on the go.  I had the desire to make a hanging, decorative piece, made up of crocheted birds. I have been learning on the go with this project as crochet is a new, and self taught skill. With the aid of youtube 'how to' videos ive learnt to do large circles and small triangles.

Ive brought out the 'knitting dolly' to knit the cord to go through the centre, i have the bells to go on the bottom, i just need to source something to make the tail feathers. This is a fun and quirky project for me and im hoping it will turn out how i envisaged.
All these items are up for sale on 'Folksy' , so check out the threads n shreds store now.....
