Yup my cheekiness knows no bounds, and whilst I have caught a serious case of the Summer laziness with regards to my sewing, I've still been fiddling about with Crochet, one decorative filet Crochet project, my first, that just needs to be blocked. I am a wimp and have been putting it off for a month now Grrrrr, at least I have these to show you, and lo and behold my first Crochet pattern, been feeling like I've neglected you guys on the tue front since getting pregnant and wearing tents instead of vintage refashions :)
Anyway I'd been trying to get my hands on a stash of cheap cotton Kitchen twine for a while to try these out and lo and behold my new local $ store carries 200ft for $1 winner! so I filled my boots, pockets and even a hand basket ;) and got twiddling these up. I'll warn you know they are so addictive and whilst they are available made for you already at Ikea, my version has no queues, no map stress, no screaming kiddo meltdowns and will not have you spending $100's of bucks on lovely stuff you want but don't need, all four costs $5 in total.
