New Toy

I spent most mornings at uni practically hugging the laser cutter in the metal workshop. Now I am hugging a Cameo Silhouette Cutter, my bedroom-friendly laser-less alternative. It's just as loud and comes with a matt so tacky that it rips the paper when I lift my work off it, but soon our minds will become one and together we will make paper pieces in perfectly cut harmony!!!!

Getting My Granny Square On!!

This might be the alternative to my obsession with hand warmers. Took me a while to get the bitty stitch arrangements right and work out the best way to do the soldered attachments, but now they're sorted I'm going to make loads in every colour I could possibly think of and work out more designs. And then maybe make a tiny pointless blanket for a beetle in need...

These squares are 12mm x12mm, which is about as small as I can get I think.

I Made Triangles

 Did a bit of crochet doodling, if there is such a thing, and came up with these triangles. I'd love to turn them into pendants, though I will probably have to create some sort of silver wire frame to give some weight on a long chain. If that doesn't work I'll make some sort of unnecessarily elaborate pin cushion or a really tiny blanket.  My favourite  is the green black and purple one, it sort of looks like a pansy.

Its getting to that time of year where I'm thinking of making new hand warmers for the autumn season and reap the benefits of my summers worth of button collecting, which means that I get to put my favourite ones on a pair and keep them for myself muahahaha
