Lace Cross Added To Store

Hi everyone.

The lace cross you saw in my previous post is now available in my store. It is available in a few other colours, although my favourite remains the white one.

Also make sure to check out the other items in my store and remember that I can do custom listings with any colour variations.

Happy shopping!!

Lace Cross

When I came across this pattern I thought it would make the perfect gift for my grandma, whose birthday is coming up in a few weeks. I thought she could use this as a bookmark for her bible.

The pattern was very well written and easy to follow. It took me about an hour to complete (also watching a movie at the same time). I decided to add some tassels at the end for a little more length so that the cross can stay tucked in between the book pages and just the tassels can hang out.

Keychain – Tiny Penguin

I’ve been working on this little guy on an off for a few days now. It might look like a small and easy project, but crocheting him was definitely not a walk on the beach. I used a 2.5 mm hook and fine bamboo yarn, and since I crochet tighter that most people, half the time I couldn’t even find my stitches. I’m not even going to go into how fun it was sewing all those tiny pieces together. In the end, it was worth it because he’s so darn cute! Take a look for yourselves if you don’t believe me.

I’m going to attach a string to the top of his head and put him on my keychain or attach him to my purse.
