butterflies

Wow, that was a long break in posts! But I'm back now and hope to update this blog a little more often.

I have a new blog up and running, click here to visit. The aim of this new blog is to showcase my own patterns and designs, many of which have been published in magazines, and some of which will soon be for sale through my Etsy shop, so its more of an online portfolio than a blog, but if you're interested, then hop on over and have a look.

I thought I'd share a couple of the things I have been working on today. I found a pattern for 3d butterflies here and so decided to make some.


I made this one using 4ply cotton (dmc natura, my favourite cotton for crocheting, and no i'm not sponsored by them in any way!), and popped it on a hair slide for my daughter.

Then I decided to make a tiny one using thin crochet cotton. This time I made it into a necklace




My mind works in very mysterious ways, and while I had the crochet yarn and tiny hook out, it turned to jewellery. Nothing at all to do with the butterflies I'd been enjoying making, but this time I made a flower ring. It was a little plain so I decided to add a few seed beads into the centre, and this is what I ended up with.


A quick and pretty ring. I think I'm going to make a few more of these as they were so quick and easy to make.
