Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


That creative buzz

Thank you every one who joined in the conversation about all things Millie - I really enjoyed not only making her but reminding myself of things I did know and learning lots that I did not! There was a touch of sadness as I pushed the parcel into the postbox - although I know she was not mine, I did rather fall in love with her and her story!

It brought back happy memories of toy making when the boys were little and re-intensified my love of making small things with lots of detail.

I have been happily invited to display and sell some of my tiny folk makes - so I took down some needle felted creatures and...

...my latest fun size makes - knitted brooches. I have already sold some which has delighted me and I have had such lovely feedback - it really gives you that buzz of HaPpInEsS :) 

My small but happy display of tiny-folk-makes :)

Any hoo, yesterday I suddenly wanted to make a knitted bear (no I don't know why either) and to soothe that need, I ruffled around in a basket full of odd yarns and wool. It was a bit of a pot luck selection but I found a warm cream coloured yarn and began.

Knitted flat, there is an awful lot of increases and decrease to create the tubby tum shape and the little short legs - I am as I type, just taking a break from stuffing the fellow before adding facial details and potentially other fun things like a scarf or a patch or both! (just looked at the photo and flattened out ted looks like a rather anemic turkey 😆)

I think my creative mojo has returned - it took a year's sabbatical but I can feel the well overflowing with the need to make/create/bake/sew/knit/crochet - there is only small (but vital problem) I only have two hands!! 

Any hoo, where this leads to is - have a good Friday and a lovely weekend, speak to you soon xxxxx

  1. Love the knitted brooches and so glad your creative mojo is returning (not that you've been doing too badly up until now!). Maybe there's hope for us all now. :-)

    1. Thanks😊I used to be quite prolific and it stopped... but now I'm finding the ideas bubbling around in my head and just not enough time to do them!

  2. I hope my mojo returns soon. Love your makes. x

  3. I was walking past the 'shop; the other day and noticed your goodies on display. Well done you. I craft every day; be it 5 minutes or several hours. I would feel very distraught if I could not craft; it keeps me sane! My friend would be tempted to say bonkers...

    1. Thank you, and yes I know what you mean about being distraught and bonkers if you couldn't craft😁

  4. Oh you clever young lady, where do you get your creativeness from? As above comment, I always need to be doing whether sewing, knitting/crochet or even gardening or cooking, otherwise I'd go nuts. Can't wait to see more. Take care, stay safe & huggles.

  5. I enjoyed watching Millie be created. Your craftwork is beautiful

  6. So it was goodbye Millie and welcome fat tum Ted. He looks interesting. Can't wait to see him finished. Shop window looks good too. 💓 xx
