Hi All!
I know it has been a while since I blogged. Here pictured below is an example of just one of the many and varied things I've been up to since I last "spoke" to you. I've crocheted an original spider stitch towel topper design! I've still to write the pattern to go with it which may take some time. I've also crocheted an original jogger's ipod/iphone/mobile holder armband also in guess what (?): spider stitch plus a dainty spider stitch Christmas angel tree ornament in white No.10 (bedspread weight) thread. Again I've still to jot down the written patterns and test them. This is the most time consuming part. These patterns will be for sale once I complete the written patts and then work out how to enable downloading of PDF files through Etsy etc. I may also sell actual spider stitch headbands on Etsy in future but only if I give up going to markets.

I'd love to hear your comments and feedback regarding the towel topper.

I hope to publish photos of my other designs at some point as well to give you a sneak preview of them as well.

What else have I been doing to disrupt my designing: heaps of charity fundraiser planning and organising, holding charity crafts market stalls, restocking my crafts stalls, attending C.W.A. (Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc), craft group meetings, birthday and other parties, fitness training five times a weeks plus recovering from them, lol, advertising fundraising events, going to the local theatre and to the movies, keeping "fuelled up" for training and other stuff.

Thanks for reading and please feel free to share pics of my original towel topper.

All the Best!

  1. Really nice. I like this design. I have to make one of these one day. I always buy these at markets rather than make them myself.

    1. Thanks Tracy!
      I have an order to make one of these for one our regulars at the market but I can't find my sample as yet to be able to reproduce it and I hadn't had the time to write down the pattern. It has to be in a bag with the thread I made the last one out of somewhere in a sea of bagged up UFO's, lol.
      All the Best and see you next week at craft group.
