Part of my enjoyment in creating jewellery comes from finding names for each item. I’ve named my creations after cocktails, birds, seasons and places. Just now, I’m loving creating earrings using acrylic and glass flowers and leaves, in my new “floral” range.
I’m frantically knitting things to sell at Paraparaumu Playcentre Fair this coming weekend. So far. a “Scorch the Dragon” hat – and another started; baby ugg boots in green+purple Opal sock wool; purple mittens for my grandson which he won’t wear and might as well be sold; mittens in progress made of leftover blue Flutterby yarn (acrylic, so it doesn’t knit well or keep its shape, but cute) with some freebie blue yarn intertwined for strength.
Also three cute flower hats in shades of pink!!! I cannot usually be having with pink but these colours somehow got around my emotional barriers. With knitted flowers on.
Now I need more polystyrene hat stands to display them.
Good grief, look at the time! I’m still in my pyjamas.
