Hard Work

I’m working really REALLY hard at ‘The Workplace’

Which is just fine, yet it leaves little time for crafting or blogging, I figure I get to retire in 15 yrs or there about, so if you can all just bear with me till then that would be great 🙂

Although I have managed to sneak in a little crochet project for Moo

I used some more of my free red aplogy yarn on this cute pattern by Marleen Hartog
I used some more of my free red apology yarn on this cute pattern by Marleen Hartog, I don’t want to show the full Dinosaur as Moo hasn’t seen it yet and I know he peeks at my blog every now and then …when he’s not actually posting on it of course !!

There is a red Triceratops on my needles which should be done some time this Millennium, until then, I have a couple of WIP very nearly completed and as soon as this awful fog and rain clears up making the light in the cottage better I’ll be able to take some photos, hope to catch up with you all again soon 🙂

A Pay It Forward Give-Away

Quite a while ago I ordered some yarn from an on-line company I use quite regularly, they sent me part of the order saying to expect the rest shortly, a couple of weeks went by, nothing, so I dropped them an e-mail, they said it would be here in the next day or so, again nothing, I waited a couple of more weeks then dropped them another e-mail, oh yes it will be with you soon they said. All in all 2 months or more went past, by now feeling quite fractious I e-mailed a terse correspondence, the yarn arrived a couple of days later along with 7 balls of yarn as way of an apology – the ‘extra’ yarn was 1 ball of purple and 6 balls of in your face bright red … not sure if this ‘gift’  really was an apology or a take that Mrs P !!

Any-ways I got to thinking what on earth I could craft with my ‘bonus’ yarn so I made a start on this

Mmmmm when the yarn was in the package it looked a little more subdued, now I've started to crochet I'm not so sure it was a good idea !!

I’ve started so I’ll finish, oh my giddy aunt it’s going to be a tad  how shall I put it …vivid

So by you are possibly wondering where on earth I’m going with this ??  my idea is because I got this yarn for free why not craft a give-away, and here it is in all it’s *glory*

Mmmmm not everyone's colour combo granted
Mmmmm not everyone’s colour combo granted, this little gem could be used for a yarn/fabric storage ?? a gift for a child ?? I’m sure your toilet rolls will be quite at home interned in this creation  or you could just hide the darn thing away

This isn’t enough ?? well I also took the advantage to craft a primitive folk art rabbit,

This is Robin Rabbit, I'd like to think his simplicity and little heart button will creep into your affections
This is Robin Rabbit, I’d like to think his simplicity and little heart button will creep into your affections (the red is a better representation on the rabbit than on the bag – so you may be needing your sun glasses !!)

If this is for you leave me a comment and I’ll but the names in said bag and Beloved will draw out the winner on Saturday 17th October

Good luck …I think that’s the phrase I’m looking for 🙂
