Sitting in the quiet time while the kids sleep, at work…. a lot of time and it is peaceful to sit with something keeping your fingers busy. Also the early shift is boring as hell and thats also a good time to carry on making little bits and pieces. The kids will get thier paws on them when I have made a few more.
At the moment I have rather a good cat emerging. I don’t follow any instructions… I just feel how it should turn out and see a finished idea in my head. I think I should try make them a little bigger! The mouse-like-elephant was first- startled and surprised at being made, then the octopus. They are a little smaller than an apple.
I also made a small flower and sewed around the edges to give it definition and added some beads. I just need to crochet a nice chain or maybe elastic for the wrist? I haven’t worked that out yet.
Crochet cottons (is that right??) and some beads, and left over buttons kicking about the kindergarten. No, I didn’t just nip them off the clothes of the kids but it’s not a bad idea. Oh, and some scrap material for the elephants ear I sewed on just for a nice touch.
