New old-style little ted and crochet update


Time for What's on my Work Desk Wednesday and join in with the weekly Show and tell.  So, on today's work desk/dining table there's my new (to me) Whiff of Joy rubber stamps that I got from ebay last week, together with a card that I made with one of them (see the post below this one), some stamped images ready to colour and my blue pencil case/crotchet bag.  The purple lidded box is my new storage solution - its what the clothes washing liquid capsules come in - the boxes are see through, quite sturdy and are just the right size for my bling and other bits 'n' bobs.  Doing my bit for recycling too!

Here's a close up of my new stamps - I know that the middle one is Shopping Willow but I don't know the other two ... Willow something or another I'd guess.


So in my pencil case there's a little sneak peek of the little teddy I finished yesterday.  It is made of mohair and is about 3.5" tall.  The ball of white crochet thread was a Hobbycrafts bargain and was only about £1.50.


In Sunday's post I said that I would let you know how I got on with teaching myself to crochet flowers - well, here's the result.  As a compete crochet novice I'm really please with how they've turned out.  The pastel ones are done with 4-ply wool and the smaller white one is done with the crochet thread.  All were done on a 2mm hook.  I prefer the white one because the thread is much finer - look out for them appearing on a card soon!


Here's a couple of close ups of the little teddy.......


Just the right size to hold in your hand for a mini hug!


Thanks for visiting today!

Love the flowers, I've always wanted to learn how to do these but never got around to it! And your new ted is just the sweetest little fellow, how lovely to have him peeping out of your pencil case, he looks very curious!

Hugs, Nicki, xx
