FO and Creative Friday {12-08-11}

Yay it’s the weekend!, hope you have all had a lovely productive week!
Have a few things to show you this week, first up are the crochet Hats I have been making for our Etsy shop,
 I had to bribe Phoenix to model with food hehe so excuse the food in his mouth! My other tiny model is a rather ugly looking doll, Sophia isn’t in to dolls, so this is the only one we have in the house, and the hat didn’t look right on her teddies.
The dolls are wearing 0-6 months, Phoenix 12 months to 3 and Sophia has 3 to 10 this pattern goes up to adult {yes I am making myself  one hehe} original pattern is by speckledfrogcrochet and the yarn I am using is Marble chunky!
The other Fo this week is my giant toft bag, some of you will remember that I brought the kit at knit nation in July, the bag was a great quick knit, using 20mm circulars and of course toft beautiful alpaca yarn  which was a pleasure to knit with!
This weekend, hubbys on a stag do till Sunday, so not only to do I get the whole bed to myself, but I can get in to my creative zone with the children, and get some serious crafting done without interruptions or feeling guilty for not spending quality time with him at the weekend when he has been at work all week.
I have so much raw fibre for spinning, which i am going to dye this weekend.
 My shabby shed should be ready for me to move into Sunday {eeeeee} and I still have the exterior to paint pale Jasmine and a trip to Ikea to get storage and desks.{ but will save ikea till next weekend!}
  I am hoping to get lots of wet felted balls done this weekend as well, for our shop, I brought some large bells to go in centre, I made a load for Phoenix last Christmas and still today they are his favourite toys, plus they don’t hurt when thrown at your face!! lol  and they look and feel much nicer then tennis balls!
These are some of the ones i made Phoenix.
i could go on and on lol, but i will spare you =)!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend, whatever you may have planned and the sun is shining where you are!
