Winnie the Pooh - and Tigger, too!

The grand baby is just crazy about Winnie the Pooh recently.  We have watched the Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the Tigger Movie about a dozen times in the last few weeks.  All this Winnie the Pooh and Tigger inspired the latest additions to Queen B's Busy Work!


 Winnie the Pooh...

This hat is crafted with soft yellow and red acrylic blend yarn in a pattern designed to bring to mind the beloved character, Winnie the Pooh!

The Wearing of the Green

As soon as I saw the cute little necklace of crocheted circles from Happy Together on Pinterest, I knew I was going to have to create one for myself.  Just in time for St Patrick's Day!





Crocheting all those circles was a little more tedious and time consuming at first than I had anticipated, but once I got into a rhythm things sped up and went pretty quickly.




I did discover that you've got to make sure all your jump rings are closed super tight! Otherwise the thin embroidery thread will manage to slip out and you'll be dripping circles everywhere.  Trust me. Learned this one the hard way.  Next time I think I might try split rings rather than jump rings.




I am in love with the end result! And already picturing it made in shades of black/white/gray, blues, or a rainbow of colors!



If you love it too, you can find the tutorial at: http://www.happytogethercreates.com/2011/05/color-my-summer-circles-of-green.html

It's My Space

Today I thought I would share a bit of where I create and work


Some crafters have a nice work room or some sort of space.  I am no different.  Well, perhaps a bit different...

 I have an office/craft/guest room in our home.  Which I never use for sewing or crafting.  I hope that will change in the near future.  Right now it's more a storage room than anything else.  There are plans to organize it and make it more user friendly.  However that hasn't started yet.   


So in the meantime, my "work space" is a corner of the living room couch and the little table next to it.




On the table beside where I sit, you will usually find whatever I am drinking at the moment... water, coffee, or on rare days maybe a Dr Pepper.  There is also my basket with odd balls of yarn, my crochet hook holder, a little zippered bag - which holds my scissors, measuring tape and gauge, large needles, and stitch markers,etc - and the notebook where I jot down pattern notes as I create new designs.






Whatever project I am currently working on is usually in a large zip top plastic bag to protect it against unforeseen accidents.  (Did I mention I drink coffee often while working?And I'm not exactly known for being graceful)  That particular baggie in the picture is holding a delicate white baby sweater which will be available soon.

It's not much... nothing fancy.  But it's my space.  Added bonus - I can watch television or Netflix while I crochet.
