The Gallery - Blech!

Joining Sticky Fingers for The Gallery... the theme this week is "Faces".



Do you remember those faces from the first time your child tried solid food? These pics of Miss J still make me chuckle!

Made It Monday - Spring Crochet Dress

I wanted to try something new for another Spring showcase, and I also wanted to use some gorgeous Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK that was calling to me from my yarn stash.


This Dusky Rose Crochet dress is a size 5-6. The beautiful cashmerino gives this fabulous shift dress a wonderfully soft feel. Finished with a crochet floral embellishment and buttons at the back. 

Miss J loved modelling this for me (and she has ordered one for herself of course!). 

The dress is based on a pattern by Sarah Lora and is available on Ravelry here, and on her blog "Ball Hank n' Skein" here

This dress will be available to purchase at the "Beautiful Springtime Collection" showcase at Kiddlywinks on Facebook which starts tomorrow night September 17th.

The Gallery - Me and Andy Warhol

Joining Sticky Fingers for The Gallery... the theme this week is "Selfie".


I must admit, I'm not one for taking selfies. But if challenged I like to keep a bit of anonimity, usually hiding behind some photo editing creativity.

This isn't a new photo. But it's one of my favourite selfies :)

Made It Monday - Gothic Fingerless Mitts

Continuing on the Gothic theme, I decided that some fingerless mitts would be a lovely idea for the "All Things Gothic & Dark" showcase.


I have crocheted these gorgeous mitts in Cleckheaton 100% bamboo. After wet blocking, they feel luxuriously soft and I really didn't want to take them off!

The pattern is by Patons Design Studio and is available via Ravelry here
