Dressing up stones

Hi there! Been a long time O_O! I do still check up on the WordPressers I follow, just been too lazy to put up anything here.

So I finally got around to taking photos of some of my latest crochety adventures and, as usual, I thoroughly enjoyed making them!

I think I’ma be makin two seperate posts for each of them, just because one of them will have some info on how to make it, and it just gets more visibility that way.

Anywhoo, here’s number one: Dressing up stones! Yes, stones, in this case, they are bricks, eroded by water, turned into glorious orangy smooth pebbles! They make a great contrast color with the threads, and I highly recommend using them! Plus, they are way more original than normal pebbles!

Here’s mah photo:

It’s really easy to make, just make sure your doily is big enough to wrap a bit of the pebble you are using. Also, before you do wrap it, use a needle to carefully sew your thread, stitch by stitch around the edge of your doily, loosely and leave a bit of tail. Once you place the doily exactly how you will want it over the pebble, pull the tail slowly but firmly, it will make your doily wrap itself around the pebble! Some adjusting may be required here and there, but it is overall pretty easy to do 🙂

Welcome to the jungle

Today my dad came over for a few minutes while I got something for him.

Immediately I became (even more) aware of the jungle that my apartment has become after I got addicted to transforming pots and light bulbs. Glass paint pots, Acrylic paint pots, Enamel spray cans, paint brushes, turpentine bottle, paint stained tissues, glue pots, glue tubes, painted pots, unpainted pots, yarn balls… good lord, I’m surprised my boyfriend hasn’t lost it yet! In fact, he hasn’t even complained once. Bless him.

So after I saw this picture I had a really good laugh. I’m sure anyone going through a similar creative spree will appreciate it:
