Tinkerbell Project.. the beginning

So as you have read in previous post, i'm making a Tinkerbell blanket for my daughter.

Just a bit of the yarn attached to the blanket at once

Using Denise Interchangeable Crochet and extensions kit. This blanket is done in Tunisian simple stitch (165 stitches in length) 

So after a "uhm few hours" this is what I have done.. yaaaaaa it's going to be a big blanket.. but work it. 

Diva helping me! yaaa KITTIES and Yarn in my house doesn't match!

I'm having a lot of fun and challenging making this... the twisting of the spools yarn. So it got a little nuts when making the feet.. now I'm at start of her legs.. as you can see I'm about to start the sparkles.. etc etc.. So onto the next section!

Mother's day weekend with my little family

I never thought that I would ever become a mother. It's not an easy job. But because of this little girl, I feel complete and whole. She is my world.  

We all had a great weekend.. and it was all about running around, swimming, playing, relaxing, learning the ways of the force and my favorite moments, when she curled up in my arms after a long day of playing, and fell asleep. I honestly didn't want to put her to bed, I just wanted to hold her and cherish the memory. This is my little girl.. this is my little person, who I made and I would never ever EVER trade these moments to be a single NON mom person..

So here is to being a mom.. the toughest job I have EVER loved!!!

Souls of crochet

This is my arsenal of eyes, noses, and variety of buttons.. this little container contains the life of my creatures.. why you may ask, because the eyes are the soul.. and without eyes you have a blank creatures.
 It's one of my favorite moments is placing the eyes .. its when they come to life.. its when a smile is created on the creator.

So this is a little treasure box - I guess you can say.. of more creatures to come..

Times are a changing

How do we manage life without modern technology. I try to think back how did we do it with cellphones or anything that pertained to virtual contact. Just thinks to make u think. Not so long ago,there was any of this, and at this moment I am writing on a blog, in a virtual journal for the world to see on the floor in my pjs on a phone.... incredible really incredible

Tunisian crochet

So I'm taking a break from making creatures.. just need a change for my hands..
I started to play with tunisian crochet.. being someone who works with pixels all the time.. I love this crochet technique.. You have seen me do this before.. and this pattern before.. so i'm just refining my techniques.  So this little beauty is going to be a pot holder, once this side is done, I will create the opposite effect for the second side, and stitch together... and see where that takes me...

As for creatures.. I will be in the swing of things fairly soon. My octopuses were a huge success at the Calgary Comic Con ( thank you DEE) and my sister has request more, as well as mini ones and headbands.. so I will be in the throw of eight legs  ....  which reminds me I need more eyes!


I'm really lucky to have a supportive family, and be apart of an artistic family!
