I'm getting my creative side back again thank goodness.
I feel so much better when I'm making something, anything will do, lol
Why I can't realise this when I'm in the doldrums I don't know, just not thinking clearly I guess.
I now have 10 crochet bunting flags finished so just need to join them together and add the tassels.
But, true to form I have started another project (maybe this is why I get in a pickle, maybe I should do one thing at a time, lol)
This new crochet project is a tiny fox brooch.
I went up to bed the other night and decided that I wasn't tired so started the little fox.
Don't look at the dust on the magnifier, it's since been dusted, thought my eyes had deteriorated for a moment, lol
There we are, all dusted and clear nd working with it in the daytime.
I need this magnifier and my reading glassed at the same time to work on this as it is so tiny.
I'm using DMC Cebelia No10 cotton and a size 1.75 hook.
Here is his little head complete with ears. We won't talk about how fiddly the ears were but suffice to say I will only be making one of these brooches.
This is how he will look when finished.
I think my printer is running out of ink as there are lines on the photocopy but you can get an idea.
Cute isn't he?
Oh, he is so cute! I often have several projects on the go at any one time (as I do with books, unless one particularly grabs my attention).ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing Mr Fox when he is finished.
Best wishes and enjoy a crafty week
I like the idea of a little home of my own, I usually escape upstairs to my craft room when I need space.Delete
he is really cute, and i tis good to have things to do like this. i would love to be able to crochet anything even a flat piece..ReplyDelete
Remarkably, given my distaste for dogs, I the Tigger get on rather well with foxes. There used to be a tame-ish one living at our allotments. Never mind the eyes, how do you get your hands to manipulate something that small?ReplyDelete
BTw - your wouldn't be an Aries birth sign would you? This many things on the go seems to be a feature that has been brought to my attention by an Arien friend called aunty-Roz.
I'm a Pisces with Cancer ascending and Leo in the midheaven, I have Mars and Saturn conjuct in the first house. I believe Mrs Thatcher had the same conjuction.Delete
I guess you will see by now that I know a bit about Astrology. lol
My Daughter is an Aries but hasn't a creative bone in her body. lol
As for my hands, I do have arthritis but gratefully I still seem to be able to do these tiddly things. I think it's more patience than anything and I have it for crafts but not for other things, ask Tom, lolDelete
Oh yes, very cute. Good that you’re found your crafting mojo again!ReplyDelete
Your little fox is turning out great even if he will be an only child! xReplyDelete
So little.... but so darling!!!! Keep moving those hands, my dear... and make the doldrums fly out the window! ~Andrea xoxoReplyDelete
I'm always starting new projects before I finish the first. That fox is so cuteReplyDelete
OH, this may be your cutest yet! It is awesome. I love foxes, and have only seen one in the wild close up. They are so beautiful. Do you ever sell any of your work, or would you?ReplyDelete
Hi Ginny, I do not usually sell my work. I have often thought of it but I don't like making more than one of anything. Glad you like the little fox.Delete
Foxy is going to be very cute. I used to be able to crochet. I once made a " waistcoat"....must have been in the 70s.ReplyDelete
Love the bunting and the little fox is a delight. Glad you have found your crafting mojo, I have found it blows the cobwebs away.ReplyDelete
It's going to be wonderful...so fine. I look forward to seeing the brooch when it is finished. the bunting is beautiful too. Like yourself I very rarely repeat a make! I think it is something to do with achievement. stay safe Amanda xReplyDelete
great bunting and that little fox is so cute.ReplyDelete
I love the bunting. It will look really sweet strung up and displayed. Foxy is cute too.ReplyDelete
