I came across a great little pattern the other day for a crochet wash cloth and have been dying to give it a go. So over the weekend while it was raining and I was stuck inside I managed to whip a couple up.... They're made out of 100% cotton which is supposed to be better/softer on your skin then acrylic or 100% wool. If it was destined to be a dishcloth I've been told that the best fibre to use is good quality acrylic. It's supposed to stand up to the scrubbing of the dishes better then cotton. What do you think??
After looking at all of the lovely coasters that people have been making for the swap I couldn't help but make up a little crochet set. I designed this pattern on Friday night after several failed attempts at making a hexagon block. What do you think???I made a set of six coasters out of the 100% Australian Merino Wool I bought back here. My swap partner is from overseas and would just love these coasters.... OH, now to decide which one's I'll send her, maybe I should just send her both sets????
Now that I'm "hooked" on crochet again I decided to whip up a little carry bag to put any projects that I'm working on in. I made this little tote from the 'Bend the Rules Sewing' book by Amy Karol. I swear it only took about 20 minutes and it's fully lined, how greats that??? And yes you're right I used some of the Humpty fabric from here.
I grow all of my veges in a series of old rain water tanks scattered around my yard. This one has some cherry tomatoes in it. They've just gone crazy after all of the rain??? Another thing that has happened to them since the rain is that a grub of some kind has started burrowing inside the tomatoes.... I have heaps of tomato plants scattered around my yard but this is the only one with this grub in/on it.... Does anybody have any pointers as of how to get rid of the little terrors???I also recieved my Winter Quilt from the swap today.... Thankyou so much Tracey I LOVE IT!!!! I'll post some pics later on in the week. Take care...... :)
