A big Hello and wowsers haven't we been away for a looong time from challenges. We've been to Ballarat and Bali too.. It was an awesome and hectic few weeks but now I am back...

Here is my take on the sketch challenge, balloon inspired with a wink of stella. Gold thread adding to the balloons sparkle.

Like baby like Brother. Matching beanies one fitting, one smooth slouch style

Baby gumboots were the cutest ever.

AND When your day is dull, crochet a pair of rainbow boots.

Infinity Scarf Super Chunky

I love a quick knit and so much more when it is a chunky yarn. A quick and easy project you can finish in a night.

I bought this yarn last year, named super bulky, suggested needles were 10mm. I tried them, but the scarf was going to be sooo stiff, as to be unwearable. A softer drape in order, I decided upon my chunky 15.00mm needles.

I cast on a few stitches and set about in garter stitch, for all the patterns out there I so love a basic garter, so simple and stunningly textural. No thinking involved just knit...

Two and a half balls of my chunky pink pepper coloured yarn and two cuppas later, Here we have it. FINISHED.
Modeled on the gorgeous Paper winning dress. Check it out here. :)

Chunky Yarn two balls and a half about 130m.

15 mm needles  Cast on 20 stitches AND knit. knit knit. Then join when you have tried it on a few times to your liking.

A normal standard length Infinity scarf is suggested 60 inches - a whopping 1.5metres. I just knitted up the two balls that I had and added another HALF.

A short scarf is about 55 inches long
A medium scarf is about 70 inches
A long scarf is aprrox. 82 inches.
Widths of scarves vary also : Men's scarves are normaly 6 inches wide, while women's scarves vary from 5 to 10 inches wide.

Mine vary all over the place. Depending on the yarn. Its all about what you want to do with it...

The Artful Stampers -Team Challenge Blog Hop - Theme Challenge #90

You may have come from the lovely Artful Stamper  Kathryn Carr

Masking is a technique that I haven't used a lot. Interesting to see how the other ladies took on the challenge.

I cut out a pre-stamped butterfly image and on second thoughts, the punched butterfly may have been a better choice, (even though it is a smaller cutout) It may reduced the whiter gap between the images. I would also recommend using a thinner paper, say the envelope paper would work better also. 

Lining up the butterflies took a little practice as well. But here are all the new IN-COLOURS and they are so lovely. I can see I will use these new ink pads a lot.

I have been missing in action, but I am baaack.

I have challenged myself to a catchup to be ready for the next few hops, and decided to combine the last two as one.

Interesting close...don't you think? And I didn't forget the square shape and the heart, I really couldn't fit it in...wink wink.

Corner to Corner Crochet

I found a new crochet stitch that I also love to bits.

Just google C2C crochet and there are heaps of YouTube clips to show you how.

It is a quick growing stitch.

I found a bundle of beautful soft and woolly yarn in my stash that I just had to practice on.

I used a 7.00mm hook and just got into it until I ran out.

The Artful Stampers -Team Challenge Blog Hop - Theme Challenge #84

You may have come from the lovely Artful Stamper Jane Riches

This one has been a bit of fun. Watercolour paper is so easy to use to produce a lovely card. 
White emboss a sentiment. Squish your pad together to add ink to your lid, spray a little water into it and grab a brush and paint it on. I have used an ombre effect by using Bermuda Bay at the top, Coastal Cabana in the middle while still wet to blend, and Sky Blue at the bottom and the base of the card. Attach a little embellishment and you're done. Easy. I can't wait to see what the rest of the Artful Stampers have been upto.
