Productive

I have been very productive with two more Brenda Ballerinas; a commission for a friend.

I wouldn’t normally accept a commission like this. We all know how many hours of crochet can go in to one of these. The cost, if I were to include for an hourly rate, would be prohibitive!
But this is for a very special friend, the one who took my wedding photographs. They are for her two nieces, for Christmas, at strictly ‘mate’s rates’.

Don’t you think the body pieces look a little macabre laid out like this?Brenda Ballerinas in pieces

I shall leave the sewing together for a snuggly Sunday afternoon.
Meanwhile I have taken up with this fella.

A Christmas gift for my cousin’s son.
It is a pdf pattern in Spanish by conadeartesania that I’m slowly translating. I’ve crocheted enough of these amigurumi by now, that I can see the general gist of the pattern fairly easily.

And I’ve had a request for a crested gecko.crested gecko

I kid you not.

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  1. A Crested Gecko?! Surely that is the most bizarre thing you’ve had to make to date?

  6. Yes, the pieces do look rather macabre laid out like that. The heads actually look like complete mice on their own – did you notice that?
    Who are all these people requesting amigurumi creatures? Are you sure they are really related to you/proper friends? I think they are grooming you for your crochet produce. I certainly would and, anyway, I think I am a second cousin, once removed, of your husband’s uncle’s stepdaughter.

  7. Look forward to the finished ballerinas – the bits laid out like that are a tad creepy! I love the dog and am VERY curious as to how you do a crested gecko!

    • I shall of course share the crested gecko story once I have come up with a plan. I have a couple of patterns that I’m going to mash. Crocheting something like this without a pattern to follow will be a first for me.
