Spider Web

The other day I opened the door and almost walked into a giant spider web! (Thankfully there wasn’t a spider actually in it…) I took some photo’s to show you:

Isn’t it big!

I love looking closely at webs, they are amazing!

I actually have a phobia of spiders, but for some reason I am fascinated with their webs! (as long as there isn’t a spider in them… *shivers*) I just think it’s amazing that something can make something so strong and intricate! I had my partner check very carefully for a spider before I went near it though. I like to think it was a small spider who just wanted to make a big web…. Okay, I’m getting a bit worried now, so I’m going to stop writing and think about something else!

New Baby Love

A few weeks ago my brother and his wife had a little baby girl! She is called Jasmine and is absolutely gorgeous <3 I wanted to make her something special that was useful, so decided to make a matching hat and headband set.

The pattern for the hat was found on Ravelry, the headband was created by me based on the bigger headbands I made, and I found the flower pattern in my Art of Crochet Magazine collection. They were really quick and easy to make which was really satisfying!

She looked so so so adorable! The hat was a little tighter than I would have liked, but hopefully it will stretch a bit the more she wears it :)

I’m thinking of making some baby-sized headbands to sell along with the bigger ones when I open my shop, what do you think?

Cheeky Monkey

I made this cute little monkey as a gift for someone, isn’t he adorable? He didn’t turn out like the pattern though which was disappointing, and he was meant to have a felt face but it just didn’t look right! He still looks cute though so all is well ;)

His tail has wire in so it is adjustable, and I had to dye the cheeks pink as I only had white felt, thankfully it turned out well! His belly is made out of heart-shaped felt which I thought was a nice touch. I found the bananas fun to make :) Although until they were sewn together they didn’t look much like bananas!

Its so nice to be back blogging! I’ll be back tomorrow with Etsy Finds Friday :)

Thanks for visiting! Sam xx


Problems problems….

Well for almost 4 weeks we’ve had no phone line, meaning we’ve had no internet access!! So I’m so sorry that my blog has been so quiet recently, but things should definitely be back to normal now :)

As its late and I’m sleepy I will be posting a proper post tomorrow, so see you soon!
