Longing for Spring...

Well this winter has been way too long!  It seems to never end.  We have had record amounts of snow and freezing temperatures.  Yesterday it rained!  Next week it will be freezing temperatures again..
So what better way than to bring some warmth than to crochet.  And to to do just that by creating something for Easter.

Bunny Hat & Diaper Cover Size 6 months

Everywhere I go I seem to see Minion characters.  I haven't seen the movie where they are featured, but thought it would be fun to create a Minion hat.

I am currently trying my hand at making a baby dress in a bright pink.  We will see how that goes.  Stay tuned for a picture of the finished product.  
Have a great weekend!

Infinity and Beyond

My latest creations below

Baby pink infinity scarf made from super bulky, super soft yarn

I have been working on this granny stripe Afghan inspired by Lucy at Attic24
One evening I starting making dishcloths and just couldn't stop.
made from 100% cotton yarn in various colours

Below is a hooded cowl I met in a child size super bulky ivory coloured yarn.  Its super soft and accented with a wooden button.  I apologize for the scary head I used.  I need to find a name for her.  

Finally spent my bookstore giftcards on 8 books!
Haven't read any yet since I spend most of my time crocheting lately!

Crochet magazine bliss...

So excited recently to receive this surprise from the UK!

Now for my crochet update!
I was featured in a blog call Society Bride on Superbowl Sunday.  My football inspired hats were part of a photoshoot.   Click here for the link by Society Bride and featured David Lynn Photography.

Canada mittens...snow....cold

Well I have not posted for way too long!
I have been busy working and crocheting.  The winter here in Ontario has been fierce!  We have never seen so much snow iin a number of years and the temperatures have fallen to -40C at times.  

My daughter and I decided to go shopping in a Saturday morning!  This was the scene on the roads

The amount of snow just overnight on our beloved Maple

This day we received about 25cm of snowfall

We are running out of places to put the snow from the driveway

Wintery Autumn...

We have had a beautiful autumn here in Ontario Canada. The weather has been sunny and warm...that is until this week.  We awoke to a dusting of snow on the cars.  Today we looked outside and it was like we were in the inside of a snow globe.   The colours are beautiful this time of year.

We celebrated my Mum's birthday this month as well.   She loves butterflies so we had a cupcake garnished with a butterfly.  Along with a lovely butterfly locket.

For my fellow crocheters...this doilie in the background was made by my Nana years ago

Granny Stripe...

My latest creation...a granny stripe afghan which is still under construction.  I am making it for my daughter who is at uni in the UK. 

The inspiration to make this comes from Lucy on her blog Attic24
Lucy is very inspiring to me in her crochet technique.  The colourful pieces are alot of fun!

Fun with colours

Will be nice and thick and warm
