The Sunday Round Up

19 Oct

I know it’s Monday so this is technically the Monday Round Up, but I’m keeping the name as Sunday. I had all intentions of posting last night but I had a busy day and then went to a friend’s house and stayed a wee bit later than I said I would, got home and just went to bed.

So what’s been going on this week? I’ve managed to crochet myself a pair of fingerless mittens!

Fingerless mittens!

These are my practice pair – as you can see I managed to make to one on the left a little bit smaller (it was my first one though!!) I’ve got to make a pair for a friend at work so this was good practice for me and gives me a pair of fingerless mittens that make me feel good because I made them! I’m going to add a small crochet flower to each of them too, to give them that extra something.

I went a bit flickr crazy as well this weekend and added loads of pictures to my favourites. Here are a few of them…

These three photos definitely catalogue my main obsessions right now – owls, wool/yarn and Perler/Hama beads. I can’t get enough of them and love just being able to create with the latter two and finding cute owls to add to my collection wherever I travel.

I also have a small collaboration in the works with my boyfriend as he came up with some great ideas for things to sell in my shop – just over a month to go until it’s live!! I can’t wait. This month is going to be a busy one I’m sure.

On another note…..

Christmas Craftacular!!

IT’S BACK!! And I’ll be helping out again, yay! I had so much fun helping at the summer one that of course I would jump at the opportunity to help again. It’s at York Hall in Bethnal Green again, entry £2, goodie bags, 12pm-7pm. December 12th is a Saturday and if you’re struggling to find that perfect gift for someone this will be a great place to find it!

Vendor applications close on 6th November so apply away. Still have over 2 weeks to do so and it is such a great opportunity. Don’t miss out!! Although I would have loved to have had a stall, it’s still not financially viable for me right now – I need to build up a stall fund or something!! Haha.

So, that’s your day-late Sunday Round Up! I’m off to crochet some granny squares before I go to work. I’ve got a whole morning as I’m on the late shift which doesn’t start until 1.45pm!
