Crochet KOBO Sleeve.

I have had a lot of reading time with my lovely KoBo, you know one of those e-readers...A gift from YS and DIL.. down load the book and away you go, to find a quiet place to lose yourself in the story :)).  So I thought it needed a sleeve to sit in..
crochet a little flower ..

Looking snazy..

The members on Australiacrochet were discussing the Sharp hook, for when you need to go through material and there are no holes...This addy was in a message so I thought I would give it a go as I love to crochet edges on hankies.. I bought a couple to try it out..(hankies that is :))
Little pattern book came with it..

close up of the hook..
Sewing is another passion of mine, with the couple of colder rainy days we have had made it a pleasure to be able to try out a couple of patterns I have never made ... Well this one was in the to hard basket until I found a Tutorial on Youtube... Flying Geese  I made a sampler ,so easy.. One seam ... I couldn't believe it.. Of course now I am on the hunt for the right material to start my on quilt..

Happy crafting to you all :))

Booties,Blanket & Tube square quilting..

Booties for the next little girl, who will arrive around late March..
They are so cute and easy to make..
This rug is being crocheted from left over baby wool.. It is a good project to have when we are at the block..

Then there is this very fine hook... I was looking at embroidery on youtube and found this hook.It is called a Tambour hook and is used in beading..
Right up my ally...:)) Think it may take a while for me to come any where near close to the beautiful clothing made in France.. But I can dream :))
Then I found This..... Hour Glass square made from a tube of material.. Well I just had to try it... Loving it... Maybe a table runner coming up..Isn't the material lovely. Beautiful pansy. :))
I also have another project that I am part way through making strips..... finished them today.. I love to use Jelly Rolls by Moda and this one is 1.1/2" wide.. Honey Buns is the name , purchased in Melbourne.. :))

Marvelous what can be achieved on a rainy day :)).. What did you do today??

Paradise and a little crochet

A little piece of Paradise .... My paradise, when I feel the need to unwind..:)) They were sunny days and free from all that city noise..
It was so quiet, the sheep sounded like they were in the same room ..Perfect..:))

A little crochet :)) always soothing... 

exchange gift..

 I have been hunting the net for a pattern that only took 1 ball of yarn..
Sure there are hats & scarfs out there, but I wanted something different..
So after a few nights of hunting, I decided on a purse.. :)) This is for my partner on Australia crochet..  Crocheted in 8ply (100gr) Magnum
,4.50 hook and a small piece of fabric for lining ..

It could carry crochet , knitting, or small sewing items.
 I know she loves all three ..
Small flower I made for a trim..
Passing clouds..

What have you been making ??
 I love reading the daily activities of my blogging friends , from the recipes, to patterns, and travels, a huge mixture of culture at the touch of a button.... I love it :))
