Happy almost friday!
I am so looking
forward to the weekend, aren't you?
I'm nearly done with my very first Amigurumi Teddy Bear.
This is as much as I've done as of today.
And guess what I stumbled upon, whilst I prodded and poked around my
massive library...crochet magazines from nearly 22 years ago!
This one pictured is from 1992. The pictures in it are seriously out dated, but
the patterns can be worked to a little more modern, posh appeal.
I even found two knitting leaflets from 1945. I cannot wait to start creating something
delightful from them.
But in the meantime, here I sit, sipping my tea, planning a few halloween ATC creations.
Only 23 more days till Halloween!!!

Good morning everyone.
It is just wonderful to wake to the coolness of air.
After such a long spell of hot weather, this autumn day is a very welcomed change.
With the cool weather on the rise, I thought it best to bring together
all of my crochet/knitting projects.
My oh my, I have a few started.
Well I have nearly finished the baby blanket for a workmate (pastel colours).
I just have the trim to add.
I'm still working on the shawl and socks. (Green projects from previous post).
And I've got the blanket for my son (blue green and yellow Red Heart yarn) colour name, Laddie.
The blue scarf for a friend, and the 'practice' knit, that i've been working on for YEARS...it's a project I started with my Nana, who has been gone now, over 20 plus years. Simple stitches, just mindless knit. Then I hand stitch the 'scarf liKe' rows together to make a king size blanket. I seldom work on it, I must finish someday :)
And my newest project, Amigurumi.
With all the wee scraps I have, I am looking forward to creating a few cuties from my book.
Well, I must dash for now. So much to do.
