Im sorry, ive been slacking!

I havent posted anything here in AGES! I did try last week but the PC crashed so i gave up.
So since last time ive made a few things and finished a few things.

I tried thread crochet - not too bad but couldnt think of anything nice to make
I tried wire and bead crochet - so far looking good!
I tried knitting - im CRAP at knitting! but i will keep trying!

Anyway i went a little bag crazy. Finished this one which i made the motif for myself. I made it from 100% wool with 100% acrylic for the pattern. I was going to shrink it and hope the pattern would bulge out but no doubt it would all go horribly wrong and id ruin it! So for now il leave it like this.

My mum came down last weekend so we went out with her and my sister. Here is a pic of my mum, my bf Morven and my sister watching the goldfish. Note that my bf and sister have the same hair!

The other bag i made is based on the one from the Happy Hooker book. I made it slightly different though and i went to all the trouble of lining it and everything to find that it doesnt fit my wallet!

I think its cool. Ive made a couple of bags since from the same kind of yarn. One with bobbles which im not happy with yet and one which will have some kind of arran pattern to it, I just need to practice :)

Ok and finally, the last couple of days ive been making preemie items for someone on the Crochetville forum. They are so small! Ive made a blanket and 3 hats so far. I might make something else later but i want to get them posted tomorrow. They are so tiny! I dont think this is going to let me post anymore pics :( so il leave it there for now

Ive been a bit lost

I havent been too sure what to do with myself this weekend. The jolly roger arms are boring and i wanted a change, so i frogged my plastic bag bag and ive started making 2 more of those, and i started a love knot shawl, had a go at afghan stitch, tried to make a bag with a cherry motif, but the yarn is like crap!!!! So i resorted to baking bread as a creative outlet. Its white bread with mozzarella and sun dried tomatos. Heres a pic...
