Dunster House Cabin

A great deal has happened since I last posted. The biggest event being a house move, which meant I had to leave behind my crafting cabin. However, it was the first job on the list and I have a new and larger one. We have not finished the area around the cabin and we will need some new furniture to go inside but it is  up and running.

Brown/Black Bear Crochet Trophy Head

So here is my next crochet trophy head. He was really hard to make as I was trying to use up the yarn I had at home rather than going out and buying more. Unfortunately, this meant I had to use three strands of fluffy yarn together and then I ran out so I had to use a different colour.

Hare Crochet Trophy Head

I am still going! The hare is the second head I made and by far the trickiest so far. I don't know if that is because I had had little experience or because he is so much smaller than the others. However, saying that he is my favourite one so far.

Ram Crochet Trophy Head

I posted yesterday and I can now reveal that it is the chin of the lion in the same book that I made this ram from by Vanessa Mooncie. He was great fun to make, I particularly love the way the horns came together.

Zebra Crochet Trophy Head in the Making

I am slowly working my way through the Crochet Trophy Head book written by Vanessa Mooncie. I have still only finished the mouse completely. I have bits of the hare, ram and bear to finish. I am sure I will get there in the end. I am loving following the patterns now that I am fully used to how they are written and understand how the heads work up. The picture shows me mid-way shaping the back of the zebra's head.

Dunster House Log Cabin Craft Haven

Some of you may recall back in the summer of 2015 I had a Dunster House Log Cabin constructed in my back garden. In my mind, it was alway going to be my craft/sewing room. It has taken a while to convince my husband of this...  BUT I DID IT!

Crochet Problems!

Does anyone else have this problem? I will have to go out and buy a few new cushions! Darth Vader was bigger than I thought.

Crochet Trophy Heads

I received this fantastic book for Christmas and I am totally obsessed with it. So far I have made the hare, mouse, ram and I am now on the bear. When I first started I felt like I was a beginner, I had not done any amigurumi for a long time and switching back to having to count stitches took a bit of getting used to. I have to say I have yet to complete any of the heads I have made, I will get round to it at some point.

Tunisian Wingspan Crochet Scarf

I made this Tunisian Wingspan Crochet Scarf quite a while ago and it is the most used scarf  I have ever made. Once you get your head around the pattern and the stitches it works up really quickly. The
free pattern I used can be found HERE

Star Wars AT-AT Vinyl Loo Sticker

This is a little different from my normal projects that I post. I have been having fun with my Cricut Explore, I found this FREE cutting file on a fantastic Blog named Something to Craft about. The cutting file can be found HERE It is a Studio file so you need to be a bit clever converting it so it will work in Cricut Design Space

 I have to admit it was a really tricky one to do as there were so many little parts of Vinyl to stick down. 

I was really pleased with the result, it cheers up a really boring downstairs loo. Noticed I said was! When I stuck it on the loo seat I thought the AT- AT was having a drink from the loo (a bit like a dog would). Now, every time I look at it I think it is being sick; I am not sure how long it is going to stay.
