minipods

played around one evening and these were ‘born’

photographed 5 this morning but have made 5 more since

cradled them in a pottery dish made by a famous scottish potter, which i found in a village market in tasmania

size 3 hook; grey yarn (not sure what it is, as it was given to me; could be sock wool as it’s on a cone); mauve/grey bugle beads

for sale – click here

to market, to market

i just finished getting everything ready for the market at deloraine this weekend

i also wrote up an inventory, and what i’m taking amounts to nearly $2000 … phew

if even a fraction of that gets sold i’ll be happy

this photo doesn’t do it justice – it’s hard to see all the small things in baskets, boxes and even an old suitcase (see bottom left of photo)

i collected up some of it from my gallery (mostly stuff i’ve made this year)

i also made some items specifically for the market – to see more, click here

laced up (cont.)

some time ago, i shared a post about this

i only had one photo, but i’ve since found photos of all of the pieces i made in this series

so here they all are

dutch subversive crochet

i just love the work of this dutch artist … it’s so nice to know there are more people who do subversive crochet + stitch

my parents were dutch so i feel a link to her and her work in more ways than one …

some pictures to tempt you –

here’s the link to her website – check out the gallery and other links, and don’t be put off by it being in dutch … the art speaks for itself –
