BOXED, BASKETED, CUSHIONED AND NEW CROCHET AMIGURUMI.

We've been having a few sunny afternoons here and it shows.
They've been  littering themselves in the shafts of warm sunshine.


Princess has taken on the pose of a lion on a rock, legs dangling.
Notice the lace effect that we have acquired on the arms of the sofa. lol


Polly fancied the cushion on the floor.


And earlier in the week a cardboard box attracted a lot of attention
 Mr innocent eyes,  Rupert with Rowan the lady in waiting.


Come on Rupert, we want a turn, Willow arrives and has a sniff..


Rowan thinks this fits quite nicely thankou


And here's the beginning of a (hopefully) a Yorkie dog.

CROCHET ON ANOTHER LEVEL, UNBELIEVABLE !!

I can crochet and love it but this is just something amazing.  
I came across this lady while trolling through the internet and just had to share.


Can you believe that this is crochet ?


Aren't they wonderful.  The lady in question is Scots born but I think lives in USA.

Do click on this link and you can see how she does it in time lapse.  http://vimeo.com/41159734

Do a google on Jo Hamilton Crochet and click on images, you'll see more of her work.

WHAT WOULD YOU CALL IT?

On a  walk on the downs last evening I saw this lovely sight, a load of snails bedded down for the night, or maybe for hibernation, I don't know.


I got to thinking, and this is how my mind works. lol
What would you call this,  A Snailery? or maybe a Shell..ter?
All the same I think its beautiful.

SCRUMBLE FINISHED and POLLY

I've finally finished the Cafe Creme Scrumble and got it framed and on the wall.


I'm fairly happy with it but am wondering if the mount colour is right, but then like most crafters I'm never totally happy with my makes.


 Little bit of tatting made its way in here.




Last evening before going to bed I thought I'd give the sofa cushions a bit of a pump up.


When I came back in from a quick visit to the kitchen, Polly had decided to get in between the cushions and had settled down, needless to say the cushions stayed like this until the morning.
Well, how could I move her ??

Have a lovely weekend everybody.
