This week is a short one due to Easter and I’m extra glad about it! I may have set unrealistic goals for March (or I may have been a bit lazy this month ^^) but the fact is that I really need to get several of my crafting projects finished. I have done lots on my poke-alphabet already this week and I can’t wait to show you all I’ve done on Friday.
I have made really good progresses on my teapot cosie though, and I will enter it at the Brookfield show in May. I’m pretty excited and pretty nervous as well as this will be my first craft show 🙂
Without further ado, here it is!
crocheted some leaves that I attached to the cosie
some embroidered roses make for a nice bouquet
view from above, I still have a lot to do to cover the whole pot!
closer view of the pansies. And some extra leaves to add some green
I hope you guys like it and if you have suggestions for more flowers or if you know of a pattern you love, let me know 🙂
Happy Monday lovely readers!
This week is going to be pretty short! I had work today but tomorrow is Australia Day so we’re having the day off 🙂 our plan is to go for a lovely walk along the creek in our suburb. I will try to take some pics on the way.
I was inspired by Nat and her fabric crochet basket last week and since I already had a bunch of fabric yarn, I gave it a go! I think it turned out pretty good and it’s the right size to store some of my unused yarn stash 🙂
I have also decided this year to participate in a local craft competition. They are having a tea cosie contest with a “country theme”. I’ve decided to do a big bouquet of wildflowers on my cosie. My entry will be a mixed media, I’m knitting the cosie and will crochet the embellishments (flowers). I’m not sure yet which flowers I’ll go with but this is what I’ve got so far.
I really like how the stem and the small flower turned out and I love the purple flower.
What do you guys think?
