The Next Yarn Bombing Contribution from Italy

Next arrival was from a lovely friend in Italy, you can see more of her lovely creations at Tatie’sWorld.

Tajana Yarn Bombing 1There is a whole array of flowers, beautiful mandalas, bejewelled hearts and a pretty floral garland.

And then the cutest little creatures.

Tajana Yarn Bombing 2The little mouse is so cute in his checked apron, you can’t quite see it in this shot but he is posed with carrot in hand ready to prepare some gastric delight. The pattern for him is available from TheGreenDragonfly .There are 2 of the little owls which are fab, they will be added to my little nest of owls that I have been working on, I will show you those soon I promise.

Saving the best till last, look what I got too……

BroochFromTajana2

My lovely friend shares her post for this pattern here the pattern for the flower is shared by TheRoyalSisters but it has been cleverly tranformed into a brooch. Such a lovely gift, thank you so much. I will treasure it always and wear it to Yarndale this year so a little part of you can be there too.

 

Stripy Mouse All Finished

I am so happy to say “ta dah” the colourful stripy mouse is finished at last! I know you cannot tell from the images but inside his tummy, hands and feet are some bags of plastic beans so he is nicely weighted and sits really well.

Crochet Stripy Mouse and BlanketHe looks so sweet on his matching baby blanket.

I just popped off to replace the battery in my camera and when I came back he was helping himself to some cheese and crackers, with a few grapes on the side no less! Think I have created a rather sophisticated chap?Crochet Stripy Mouse 2Really happy with how he has turned out especially considering he was originally going to be a giraffe! See link below for more on that little mishap.
