I cut the card and stapled it together for her, but Grace did all the sticking and glittering, it was supposed to look like a broken egg shell, but looks more like a crown, but what the heck, its pretty, she did a marvelous job.
Here is Ramesegg the First!!!!! we had three choices of name and hubby chose the one he liked best. William is fascinated by Ancient Egypt and wants to be an Archeologist when he grows up, has done for about 3 years and is only 8, so one hard boiled egg, 2 metres of white ribbon, 2 chenille pipecleaners and one bucket full (well not quite but it seamed like it) of PVA later here he is. I think he looks fab, one of the rules was that part of the egg had to show, which is why we left the eye bit open and William drew on the eyes.
After seeing Caz's post on Its a Creative World last week I had to go shopping for this book, I found it on Amazon at a reasonable price and its fab, I will definately be trying some of these squares when I have finished the basic blanket I am doing right now, there is one throw in there that I want to try for Graces bed, its all pretty and girly looking.
While on the subject of crochet I have been trying to find a pattern for a tea cosy that I can understand and do the stitches for, but to no avail so far, but I did find a very easy knitting pattern for one, which I printed off and tried using some very fluffy yarn that I had, I love it, although it does look like some strange green furry creature had eaten my tea pot, but I don't care, it keeps the pot warm and makes me smile when I walk in the kitchen.
Do you see what I mean about the furry creature LOL!!! It only took me 2 evenings to do this one so its very quick and easy, but the yarn made me all itchy and sneezy while I was knitting, the next one will not be fluffy!!! The lovely Felicity from JoshyandBelle has offered to root out a tea cosy crochet pattern and pop it on her blog for me after me commenting on her lovely knitted one, so hopefully I will be able to crochet one too.
Well, thats it for now, thanks for visiting
