Big make update...upcycled clothes, rag rug WIP, miss sally the dreadlocked dolly and zingy men :) very very pic heavy

Zingy EDF men :)

Miss Sally the now dreadlocked dolly...before and after pics :)

Newest rag rug in the making...

And lots of upcycled clothes made from old Tshirts, tank tops, dresses etc

Made from an old fitted tshirt into a shrug..
 Old camisole top into a skirt...
 Old XL tshirt I bought for a pound into a fun long top with crochet straps :)...
 Old large tshirt bought for a pound made into a fun top...
 My old redundant nirvana tshirt went from an unused sentimental tshirt into a dress I can wear :)...
 This floral skirt was a dress that did not suit me, just a few snips and a piece of elastic makes a much nicer skirt ...
 One of hubbys old tshirts into a pretty slob out top :)...

I really need a sewwing machine as handsewing takes forever! And then i can make even more upcycled clothes :)

New life, fresh start.

We have recently decided to give up bricks and mortar and bought a static caravan to live here with friends :)

So a new area, new home, new school for the kids...but it will be so much better than being tied to an area we are not happy in at all and to a house that costs a fortune to live in.

The caravan we have bought is a fixer needs cleaning, painting, new carpet.And a woodburner to keep us warm.

A couple of weeks in the tent, lots of elbow grease on the caravan and a better more fun free life  for us and the kids :)

But I have managed to squeeze in some time to keep crocheting my green granny mandala..
And I really need to make more of these...
I will try to get round to doing a pos of everything I have been up making EDF zingy men, giving a dolly dreadlocks, dressing up my dog etc etc ;)

Food! Glorious food!

Some crochet play food I made for my little girl, and to use up some scraps, these took a whole week!!!

Too much to do, too many ideas, wayyy too little time!

I have been crocheting like crazy but got distracted by some Ami play food for my daughter. I never realised how long amigurumi takes too bloody ages :O LOL.

But I have so many ideas whirring around in my head, a massive to do pile and a buying more wool ban.

So that limits me to the to do pile and finding projects that uses up my massive stash of wool up.

Soooo far on my I am gonna do list is,

Finish my blanket on my bed
Make some cushions
Make a couple more tops/waistcoat thingy
Make some granny squares
Make myself a bag
And will probably end up making some more play food for Little Z 'cos she loves it!

I really must get round to uploading the pics of the playfood- another one for my to do list LOL.
