Crochet Flowers

While looking into what stitching I can do
once we go mobile later this year, I resurrected my limited crocheting skills.

So here are a few of the little flowers
that have been appearing around the place.
Ive used fine wools and crochet cottons and embroidery threads.
A few have ended up on the Angel hats....but.
...Wait there's more ;)
What to do with flowers when you obsessively stitch like I do.
As soon as the project is done I will post photos.
til then

Collage on a Stormy Day

Winter has arrived waaay too early
and this storm is a wet n wild doozy, so what's a girl to do.
Play with paper n glue.
I found this tutorial by Sue Dove
and just had to have a go.

Today, since the storm is still here, I will do the second
part and use watercolours to do the backgrounds.
Happily gluing and painting
