Crochet Baby Hat

I've been testing my crochet skills after buying the latest issue of 'Inside Crochet'. It seems they still need honing after spending an hour crocheting a premature baby hat from a pattern. The hat seemed to be working out with a beautiful shell pattern...

...but I forgot to put the hook through the two loops and instead kept putting it through one. Apparently this is why there are ridges around the hat when there aren't supposed to be. I managed the intermediate pattern but have got into a very bad habit which I can't seem to nudge myself out of!

So I'll be 'frogging' the hat and starting again...: )

Fabric Rose Buttons

In the last of my crafty spending splurges after my recent flurry of sales I bought a fabric pack from 'my fabric house'. As you can see it's the roses and dots selection.

Given the choice of roses or any other pattern I think I would always choose the rose...

Just right to start making the fabric buttons I bought yesterday in what really really is my last crafty purchase for a while now!

You'll see a selection in my shops soon...

I found this beautiful insect by the river and had to photograph it. I wonder if anyone knows what it is?

It looked quite beautiful with its luminous green jacket glinting in the glaring sun...

Etsy Treats

The postman brought my etsy treat to my door this week.

A set of five ribboned necklaces for me to play with from 'The Mymble's Daughter'. The packaging was adorable as you can see and I can't wait to make some necklaces...
