Pretty Puffs Slouch Hat

How cute is this hat! Pattern is by ArrghMatey at Craftster, her pattern can be found here.

There is also a crochetalong happening.

I used a 6mm hook and a tencel blend yarn. It took me approx 2 hours. This is a nice and easy pattern.

Love it! Not sure it suits me, but I still think this hat rocks!

Organised Craft

I finished clearing out my craft room yesterday, its all pretty, everything in its place. How long can I keep it that way I wonder.
I was just in there playing around, putting some fabrics together for an applique christmas project, twisted on a foot and put a pin right into side fleshy part near my big toe, PAIN! Even bent the pin in. Crap! Guess I missed that when doing the floors. :(
So now I have my fabrics sorted, ironed and in a basket ready to take to craft tomorrow, how's that for organised? :)
I did a quick sew this morning and made my cat, Garfield, a collar slipcover, found here
I made it in a white fabric with black skullies, no additional stuff added.
Will add pic as soon as I can buy a new USB cable for it, puter blew it up & they are hard to find *sigh*

Spring spring spring!

Today I started cleaning out my craft room (Ok so it had become the storage room), pulling out the collected crap, sorting, filing, moving cupboard units, filling plastic tubs with fabric, bead work, glues, spools of thread, yarn, rulers, pens, books etc. I spent about 3 hours in there. I think tomorrow will be more of the same. So far I am happy with how things are looking. I need to put a shelf up & find a small table to fit in the nook to set the sewing machine up on. I'm looking for a new machine to buy, my Bernina (830) is just too heavy for me to move from home to craft etc. Well back to the spring cleaning :)
