Soft Eyes

This time I made a grief eater 
with soft eyes (instead of buttons).

It also got personalised with the name of the new owner
who is probably the youngest among the recipients of those pals.


More grief eaters and how they work: here .

Flower Bookmark

Just one of those ideas
that I saw somewhere
and had to crochet immediately.

And soo useful in a house
where several books are read simultaneously.

Security Blanket Baby Bear

It's been a while since I made the last one 
of these snuggly baby toys (see here and here).

The all turn out a bit different
giving each its own character.

Wise Owl

Cross stitching is a kind of therapy.
Relaxing & Calming 
(unless the thread is tangled)
(when you see the picture appear).

I adapted the original pattern
with my own colour choices.
I'm very happy with the result
and so was the new owner.

MyBoshi Craze

Following the MyBoshi hype 
I have created the first couple of stripy hats. 
Now the cold winter time can come!
Ears are covered.

BFF Necklaces

Did you know that the crochet necklaces 
also qualify as BFF necklaces?!
(BFF = Best Friends Forever)

They do!
Made upon special request
after I had finished the first one.

Now one of the necklaces will travel to the other side of the world
as sign of a loyal friendship.

Purple & White Monster

I just can't stop making them ...

I've recently written down the pattern for these grief eaters
which is now been tested by others crochet fellows.

A Long String

... with lots of beads, 
this time not crocheted
but just wrapped around the wrist.

And it could also be worn as necklace!

Colourful Bracelet

The necklace has been accompanied
by a matching bracelet.
A pity only that I attached a wrong closure
(it doesn't close!)
and need to replace it with a new one.
Oh well.

Colourful Necklace

Using hundreds of tiny colourful opaque 
Rocailles (glass beads) with a pearly shimmer 
I made this chrochet necklace.

The start of the crochet necklace is often a bit difficult
but once this is done it becomes easier.

Next Monster

They are hard to resist those little grief eaters.
This time I made a blue/green version.
A white/pink one is already hanging on the hook.

I have also been busy making other things 
in the last couple of weeks.
Pictures coming soon.
