Photos & Future Posting Rates

I took Poppy, my Haflinger, on a photoshoot this morning because it was so sunny and warm and it’s also meant to be autumn/fall where I live. Where are you, under-25-degree weather! I want cold photos!!!

I love it when the sun shines through the leaves and makes it look like I edited the photo, when it’s actually come straight from the camera onto here. It makes everything that little bit more artsy.

On the Classic Pony Cozy, I can’t find any green buttons the right shade, so that’s another topic to blog about after the trip to the craft store. The amount of stuff on that list may mean I’ll have to do daily posts to get it all up. You don’t mind, right?

See ya!

Pony Cozies

‘What are those?’ I hear you ask. Well, I’ve seen so many patterns for crochet cozies for just about anything from apples to dogs to headphones. (Yes, apples.) I decided to add another thing to crochet a cozy for.

So Pony Cozies came along!

That’s the Schleich version. It doesn’t attach underneath because I thought they didn’t really need the extra bulk underneath.

However, these can be made for Traditionals as well.

The Traditional one does button underneath because Traditionals are classy. The yarn looks black in the photos above but it’s navy.

Like in these photos!

Do you think they’ll catch on? Because I’m making a Classic one just in case. Comment below with your opinion guys! (I don’t bite!) (promise!)

Anyways, see ya!

Changing the World…..

One crochet heart at a time!

Yeah, that’s the plan for those crochet hearts I did a while ago. I’m going to drop them in slightly un-obvious places throughout the week and hope that they make someone smile.

I finished their tags this morning (it’s STILL raining cats and dogs) so they’re all ready-spaghetti to go out and be amazing.

One side of the tag says ‘Have a great day, beautiful’ and the flip side says ‘Handmade for you’.

I made double-ups of each of them so I have some of their beauty to keep with me.

Who else has yarn-bombed/done something similar to this and what was the reaction/how did it look? I’m interested to know!

Hey Again!

Sorry I went AWOL. I’ll try and post a bit more now. *oops*

Anyway, I finished the stool! It got painted and I didn’t make too much of a mess, yay!

The edges where the cardboard meet each other are a bit strange, but I don’t care.

I have some book covers cut out and ready for pages, but I don’t know how to make the pages. The covers are just cardboard from a cereal box. Any ideas guys?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Or, you know, Dress In As Much Green As Possible Day.

Anyway, I made a commemorative crochet pattern for you guys, of a shamrock. It’s adapted from Attic24’s heart pattern with a few ideas added in as well. Enjoy!
