I have been quite over excited with myself and my crochet these past few days, ever since Sunday in fact. Cos on Sunday I decided that I wanted some some hooky action, and I wanted it so badly that no-one was going to stand in my way. Not noooooo-one. Not even that cheeky crawly Little Bundle who usually scuppers all my best laid plans.
And so it came to pass that shortly after breakfast on Sunday morning I gathered all my bits and pieces together, installed myself at the dining table and slowly but surely began to get myself all worked up over some New Things.
It's been quite some time since I did New Things. As you know, the past ?? months I've been oh so slowly working on my blanket, slowly slowly, plod plod plod. And as much as I'm still enjoying that project, I've really missed the thrill of having a brand new sparkling design idea and getting all insanely giddy over trying it out and making it work.
You can probably tell by todays pictures what I've been up to eh? Yup, I've been designing and making some Christmas decorations. Ahhhh it's been hugely exciting, it really has!
The above picture was taken this morning, and as you can see I was trying really, really, really hard to multi task, to carry on the creative momentum that I found on Sunday whilst also looking after Little B. Hmmmmm. It was kind of successful...I did manage to sew on a few buttons, and string on a few beads and bells, but Little B did not make it easy for me. You can just see him to the side of my Big Chair look, crawling round, getting into all sorts of mischief. . He did his level best to interfere with me, he really did. Just as I was trying really, really, really hard to be creative, he was trying even harder to stop me. Of course he won out, and I stopped. Went back to the business of building towers from stacking cups so that he could knock them down. The usual mummy-baby stuff that we do around here.
Anyhow, I have to tell you I am completely thrilled with my hooky decs, and I can't wait to show you properly what I've made so far. The light here at the moment is very weird because of the snow outside and it's quite hard to take photographs. But I promise you I will try tomorrow, I am really desperate to show you.
I'm also going to write up a picture-pattern for these little decorations (light/time permitting) cos I think every Christmas tree deserves a bit of a Hooky Treat.
