Another hobby?!

When you have a house full of fabric, wool and children, do you really need to take up another hobby? Well, apparently my answer is yes! LOL

I have always wanted to make a mosaic, so for six months I have been collecting and reading, trying to get myself organised to have a go.

Well, here's my first attempt...still got a lot to go, but you get the idea.

I especially love the tiles I bought to represent our furry family members.

I have loved working on this. It's like an artistic jigsaw!

It's been too tempting for Gorgeous Girl to not have a play with, so she has been busily working with this mirror frame.

Why do I have the song "Anything you can do I can do better" running through my head? *grin*

Hope you're having a good week!

One little blue beanie finished for my nephew. Made from a free ball of Chroma wool received from Knit Picks.

The blue goes well with a certain little boys eyes...

Happy coincidence. .

Knitting a beanie for my little nephew and love that the variegated wool has changed colours right where the band has finished.  Couldn't have planned it if I tried. ..

Koala beanie

One of the staff at work was (bravely!) shaving her head for "Shave for a Cure". Not sure if I would choose Winter myself to have no hair...but thought a beanie might help!  So I made her a koala beanie..excuse the dodgy picture, it was finished late one night, handed over the next morning.

I've just returned from a weekend watching basketball at Gosford. Some very exciting games, including Master 10's team winning two games by 1 point!

We headed to Terrigal Beach in the morning before heading home. What a beautiful spot!

I made some progress on my rug,that I'm working on, between games, so hopefully I will be back with a finished photo soon!

Hope you're having a good week!

The kids had a Beanies for Brain Cancer day, so I pulled out some chunky wool and spent a couple of nights putting these together.

A dog beanie for Boo, in the colours of our actual dog, Ruby. Inspiration from here..http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2013/01/crochet-puppy-hat-pattern.html

And a cat beanie for Little J...

I have also been working on my little crochet squares....it's a slow process but it's good to have something to accomplish whilst watching crap tv! Getting too cold to do too much at night.

Look at all those ends to sew in!!

Hope you're having a good week!
