Kaye my lovely twitter friend @wallprice has a love for making Amigurumi,
So I thought I too would give it a go, only so many motifs and squares I can crochet!

So far I have managed a stuffed ball shape, obvious idea is an apple so may crochet a bowl of fruit!

Still some way to go but can already feel the addiction creeping up! I am Hooked (pun intended ;) )

Crochet Motifs

Been Crocheting with a fine yarn to get a lacy effect.
That's what I have done so far but wonder if there's a way of shaping them a bit more.
Also I have no idea what to do with them now?!
Great fun to do, wish they had a good use! guess the flat will just have to be laiden with coasters and doilys lol

haircut!, originally uploaded by buffys charms.
Have been such a very bad blogger lately. I do hope that I pick up in the summer months. Been a very busy mummy and crafter! Just wanted to share my new dramatic! hair cut! everyone in the hair dressers called me brave (Had about 1 foot cut off!) but it wasn't brave at all, I had fallen out with my hair a long time ago and it felt liberating to have the Evil hair chopped off! I am a happy Bunny :D

The Easter venture is beaded bookmarks for friends and family.With Summer looming am hoping the feedback is positive and they sell too!

I love the stone beads I have been working with, very Earthy and natural feeling.

With the chidlers off for 2 weeks production is almost to a halt! 
but so far the weather has been so lovely! 
I am enjoying my time with the Kids but feel worn out already!
