Wow!

I'm so chuffed - my to do list is suddenly shrinking! Yay - I've knocked about 3 things off it in the last week! That's what I like about crochet, it can be so quick!

Unfortunately, I can't show most of the things I've made as they're gifts for people who might read this. But I will give a few sneak peeks.

Tiny amigurumi monkey


Crochet scissor fobs


And Alexander insisted I make him a tiny turtle from this book, even to the extent of trying to match yarn colours, but it only took me yesterday evening to complete, so I don't mind. I wanted to call him Tippy Turtletrousers (note the Captain Underpants reference) but Alexander informed me that he's to be called Timmy the Turtle.



And I've just remembered that I never showed you this, not that I finished it in the last few days. I was trying to think of a witty post about 101 uses for pearl cotton, but I can't get past about 2. It's from a pattern by Peachtree Cottage.



At this rate, I might even get some stitching done to show next time!

Wow, you've been busy! Miss Merbear and Tippy Turtletrousers - yes, I do believe Alexander is going to be outvoted on this one - are hilarious!! The tiny monkey is too cute.

I love your crotcheting Lesley! What great finishes.
Good news...your parcel was at the sorting office!! They had never put a card through the door saying it was there mind you. I just went in to ask. Thank-you so so much!! That was just so kind of you and everything is great. I really really appreciate it x
