I would love to show you more inside pages, but I the photos turned out so blurry...

You are loved, dear blog reader. Thank you for stopping by my little ole blog. It's wonderful to have crafty friends. :)
Funnily enough (is that a word?), this is the name of the font I used in the above photo as well!

The other day I tried this YouTube video tutorial on making a huge crocheted flower. See photos above. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I think it needs a stem of some sort. It took a long time, otherwise I would've made more. I bet a bunch hanging in a garland form would look really cute.

This one is acting as an embellishment on my new inspiration clipboard (Style School project).
The pocket was handsewn since I was too lazy to get my sewing machine out. Vintage sheet and vintage fabric found at a thrift shop. Vintage button and lace from my stash. Oh! That's a Dottie Angel photo I printed out in there, one of my favourites!
I decided it was high time I did a little experimenting with lonely heart. So, I made two, added some stuffing in between and stitched them together.
The experimentation didn't stop there! I got a hold of some pink Glimmer Mist and had a go at that. My little off white cotton stuffy heart soon blushed.

Miniature quilt shop for my MIL.
A plush creature for Lochlan and a rag doll for Eireann.
Phew! It was a busy handmade Christmas! Maybe I'll start earlier this year. :)

Below is the laptop sleep I made last year for my mini laptop computer. Of course, I used pretty fabric, inside and out and embellished it! :) They are simple enough to make if you can make a zippered lined pouch. The only extra bit you need to do is add some padding inside, like quilt batting or a piece of felt.

I used Elsie Flannigan's tutorial to make this "snow day" hat for Eireann. I changed a couple of things: did some double crochet stitches along with single crochet stitches to speed it up a bit, added a contrasting colour trim and embroidered a little heart on the side. She really does like it, despite the look in the photo!
