Double Vision

Hi guys,

Completed a customer order for twin girls so no you are not seeing double.

I have used a 4mm crochet hook. The Wool is Supreme snuggly in white and lilac. The patterns are from the Granny Square Crochet book by Catherine Hirst. I do love this book.

Well the customer has collected and is really happy.

What shall I do next?????? Maybe the extra picture with give you a clue.........

Birthday card

Hi guys,

I can now show you a Birthday card I made for  my Mother-in-Law last month.

I used patterns from a summer collection that I got with a craft magazine. I used my flower nestibilities ( blossom, peony and dahlia). The butterfly stamp was also from a craft magazine.......so sorry I can not remember  which one. I used pencils to colour. Also used some bling on the large butterfly and candy and a few tatted butterflies I had made. The little butterfly stamp was from a collection that my husband bought me when I first started to craft..........crumbs 11 years ago.

On the inside of the card I have used candy and the little butterfly stamp again.

Thank you for coming  to see us on Dingus Designs xx

Fat free goodies

Hi guys,

Well I am on a diet.......the usual and I wanted something sweet to eat.....and well I can't so I thought I would get the crochet hook out instead, like you do...lol. So I made a chocolate and strawberry  cake and then a 2 tier wedding  cake.

I used wool from my stash which is mainly  Stylecraft DK.  The patterns are from the Gourmet Crochet book by Christen Haden and Mariarosa Sala. Love this book.

Luv Jane xx
