Ramblings of an Unadultered Crafter (*)

My household is a one of a kind kingdom where crafty things burst out of every corner and then revolve around the house creating wondrous sights and sometimes make me feel like Alice in Wonderland. And..oh boy... ! Do I know how to make a mess! I am mastering the discipline - take my word for it!

In order to support my claims here's the evidence for it, so witness it yourselves.

Warning: the following images may be deeply disturbing so people with weak hearts are strongly advised to refrain from further viewing.

In my shop. I made a bracelet with this rose and today it received a sister for another project.


On one side of my table - this collar (shrug) I discovered had one last row before I made the lace edging so had to unravel it...(cursing inside myself).


On the other side of the table -three new flowers {figuring out the design..}


On my chair - newly bought yarn waiting to be rolled into a nice ball.

On my walls - a ruffly scarf for a (photo) tutorial I am preparing.


In the finished pile, the wrap (the tedious one mentioned a couple of posts ago) waiting for the return of the model so that pictures can be taken.


On the coffee table - Pine (cones) rosettes I collected recently, waiting to be spray painted


and this lovely book which is a craft of another kind. I carry it with me around the house because it successfully drags me out of my creative ruts and throws me into fits of laughter. This is my first encounter with Cecilia Ahern (followed the librarian's advice to take it) and I didn't go wrong. She's hilarious!

So let these be a kind of announcement of what is going to follow in the course of January. Stay tuned.

(*) the alternative title may also stands as "Revolving around my household".

You are super busy!! And there are those roses again!! They are so beautiful and unique and lacy perfection. And the tedious shawl is going to be worth waiting for, I know it.

If this is a preview of what's to come, well, how can we WAIT!!
