something for me…

I have been working really hard for all the holiday (chanuka) craft fairs coming up that I just HAD to make something for me. I started at the set-up of the last craft fair (on Tuesday) and just finished! I love it!!!I L O V E the flower! the button is a vintage from my ex MILI crocheted each section separately and then attached them by single crocheting them together. I love how it looks like an over-lock…I got the idea from this tutorial but mine came out much smaller (probably smaller needle, wrong weight wool…

Yeah, thats me… lousy lighting in the bathroom, noone to take my picture…

in any case…I love it… now all we need is for it to get cold… 85 degrees in mid-November… enough!!!!!!

Have a lovely weekend!!!

MWAH!!!

i have to share…

this morning, UK Lass put up a crochet hat tutorial… love the time difference, sh was on her way to bed and I had just woken up…

and here’s what I made!!!!

i am sure i made a whole lot of mistakes, I couldn’t quite figure out how to keep from increasing in each row, i wasn’t sure if i was meant to close each row with a slip stitch, but over all, a really quick crochet! I am proud of me and she loves it!!!

she was excited about her chocolate milk too…

and her brother asked for one too…and posing…

and here are some more that I made for friends…

I am now officially retired from kitchen building… maybe I’ll make a fridge…

a tutorial!!!!

I have been crocheting flowers for a while now, and I love love love Lollychops’ tutorial (I think it may be her mom’s)… I also love the butterfly tutorial in the same link…

...

I have been looking for a nice leaf tutorial and haven’t really found one that I liked. I found this one, but the leaves came out a bit small for my flowers… so I decided to make up my own pattern… I’m pretty chuffed with myself…

so here we go… with cotton crochet string (or whatever its called) and a 3.5 crochet hook (Israeli number)

chain 16

in the second chain from the end, and the next two (3 in total), single crochet

double crochet in the next three chains.

treble crochet (yarn over twice) in the next three chains

double crochet in the next three chains

single crochet in the last three chains

Now you are going to work on the other side of this chain.

single crochet in the first three chains

double crochet in next three chains

treble crochet in next three chains (forgot to take a picture)

double crochet into next three chains

single crochet in last three chains, slip stich and finish off.

Voila! you have a lovely leaf!!! Add it to a flower, or add two!!!

In other news, getting ready for the Emek street fair on Tuesday. Crocheting like crazy… and playing with the macro lens. How did I leave it untouched for so long??

thats all for today! have a lovely weekend, and hope to see you soon!!!

MWAH!!!

Hi!

have you missed me? I’ve missed you… just finished up 2 weeks of non-stop kids… the ex was in the states and the ‘rents are in Australia… it was one long day… exhausting and fun and tiring and wonderful and i did really well! I am actually really proud of myself…

Glad their dad is back, so that I can have a rest, and continue to count the days until the grandparents come back… 12 and counting…

In the meantime, getting ready for three weeks of sales, one a week! The first is on Tuesday evening, a street fair on Emek Refaim in Jerusalem… can’t wait!!!! Then a home fair at my friend Bayla’s house, and then a Chanuka fair in Efrat, a city near Jerusalem… very exciting!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Will have more pics soon, I hope… and maybe even a tutorial? who knows…
