New thingies!

A while back, just before Valentine’s day, and before I embarked in the colossal project of making a crochet blanket (taking forever), I made looooooads of crocheted hearts (link: http://wp.me/p2S0n1-jE ). After making all of those hearts, I had no clue what to do with them.

Mother’s day is coming up where I live, and I have loads of soaps from Xmas (wonder how so many people I know decided to give me soaps, I swear I’m clean!). So I invented this scent bag:

My sister told me the other day she really liked mug cozies, so BLAM! Mug cozy with a heart on it lol. Her bday is at the end of this month, perfect.

Here it is:

Crochet book markers for Christmas!

Righty-o, here’s the next thing I’ve been up to: Crochet book markers. It’s great to be able to do something that makes me feel good, and then give it to someone I know will appreciate it, and save money in the process.

I found the idea in this great tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHsPxiZCulE&feature=youtube_gdata_player

The tutorial for the pansy one is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfC8iuMqUdo&feature=youtube_gdata_player

I think that on a good day, including my near-crochet-newbie status, a full time job, and all the normal activities that affect a normal person’s life, I can make one of these a day, or two, if I skip going to the gym, which I do often ahaha :p

Here are the ones I have done so far:

Game of Thrones present

Ages ago (over one year ago) I asked my brother on his bday “What would you like as a present? Money, or one of my pots, but with a GoT theme?” “POT!!” He immediately answered. I was happy with the answer, but then hehe, I never got around to it, until now.

I have a problem with this pot. I like what I have done so far, but it feels kind of naked. The pot is pretty big, so I’d like to have more area painted than this. Both my boyfriend and sister told me to leave it as it is, but I still have my doubts.

I’ll be giving it as a Xmas presie, and I guess that if I fill it up with cookies or chocolates, it will look better hehe 🙂

Any opinions will be greatly appreciated 🙂

Finito!

Finally done with the latest pot. It was probably the most intricate one I have done so far, and the most difficult one, but I had fun painting it 🙂  Mom’s bday is coming up so I might give it to her unless I make something nicer. I have to make a Stark sigil one for my brother, who also has a passion for all things Game of Thrones… Probably not the next one, but certainly coming soon 🙂

Here it is!
