I searched through my photos and images online. I had a mini starter kit, so I had all the bits I needed to dive straight it.
I put across the colours for the background, then layed on top the patches of colour for the shapes, then used scraps of yarn and embroidery to add more detail and bring the scene to life.
I was very pleased with the final outcome, and thankfully so was my Dad!
I also made some mini crochet stars. I used Attic 24's pattern, which was very quick and easy!
My intention was to make some bunting out of them, but I have only made a handful so far!
My first project of New Year, is to start a cushion cover. As I stated in a previous post I intend to make things for the home.
A year ago we purchased a lovely new sofa, our previous one had been second hand and not our taste at all, but I kept the cushions, as I knew I could do something with them!!
I used Planet Penny cotton, as they are a lovely rainbow of bright colours, which is just what I like! I am using the neat ripple pattern, again from Attic 24. This project should keep me going for awhile, the first row was a little tricky but it now flows very easily!
I don't really have much direction at the moment. I usually am quite focussed at the start of a new year, and have plans in my head of what I want to achieve. But this year I'm not sure what I want to achieve, and with crafting I'm not sure in what direction to go next! I guess I will keep pondering until things become clearer or until opportunities or situations arise!
I have just made a new purchase, a lovely new camera !!
My trusty old camera has served me well, but it takes AA batteries which is a bit of a pain, and technology moves on so quickly that it is quite dated now.
So now I have a massive zoom, and loads of megapixels for amazing clear pictures, a big screen to view them on and loads of different modes to play around with!
Now I cant wait to go away to give it a thorough try out!!
