thanks heaps to lisa walton who has just posted about my textile art on her blog

she opened up a wonderful new ‘door’ for me and my artdoorkeepers quilt - rita summers - detail 1

babies + yarnbombing

being my usual subversive crocheting self is a lot of fun, but i do have a more serious side

i came across some lovely patterns for babies and decided i had to make them

this decision also provided a solution to the problem of using up my stash of crochet cottonscrochet wash cloth + photo frame - stitchedupmama 2013

the wash cloth came from a book called cute and easy crochet (Nicki Trench);  the photo frame pattern can be found here

of course, the yarnbombing continues as i repurpose some UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) to decorate some trees –
