Felt Tip Fun

Bought a cheapo packet of felt tip pens in the supermarket.
Lots of fun for under a quid! ^^

Amigurumi Foo

My Foo Dog obsession has crept into my amigurumi, and not just one Foo either!
I still can't decide which I like best!




I wrote up the patterns so you can make the Foo of your choice.
Avaliable from my Etsy.

Odd Sox

I saw some awesome sock dolls at a craft fair recently. It really opened up my eyes that there was more you could make from the humble sock than just sock monkeys! So I purchased a couple of great books (1 2) on sock doll making and a whole bunch of socks and got sewing!
Here's the result, some very Odd Sox!


I made a couple from the books first then got experimenting.


A totoro was sure to follow! XD"

And my favorites so far:

Happy St. Patricks Day

and um, Happy New Year! XD"

Yeah I've been slacking on the posts this year, sorry 'bout that, it's not due to a lack of creativity, just a lack of time. XP

Anyways I figured today was a good day to reveal to the world (gotta do it sometime I guess) That I have been learning the Tin Whistle!
'Oh dear me NO! Who let her loose with a whistle?' I hear you cry! XD"

HAHA I know, it's a frigtening thought given my past of failed attempts to learn instruments.
But did I give in and decide I just didn't have a musical bone in my body?
No I persevered! And amazingly I found I could actually produce somthing that does sound sort of musical on the tin whistle! \ ^_^ /

Should to wish/dare to hear proof of my almost musical abilities, here's some tin whistle tunes played by me! ^^

Most are Irish, hence the St. Patricks day link.

Song of Summer <- this is my favorite. X3

Peig Ryans

Boys of the Town

Claremans Hornpipe

This one's not Irish, it's from a Studio Ghibli film called Tales From Earthsea, I've always loved it and so I'm well chuffed to be able to play it! X3
Teru no Uta

No one bleeding at the ears?
Good good! XD"
While it's clear I'm never gonna be a master, I feel rather pleased with myself at having got this far and hopefully I can improve a bit too!
