Doorstop Delivery

I made two doorstops that were commissioned by my friend Glynis. They were delivered last night. Glynis asked for two purple doorstops and sent me photos of the particular purples she had in mind. I will show the detail of the first doorstop today and the second tomorrow.

New Glasses

Although the difference is subtle, the new glasses (first photo) do not look like they are jammed onto her face. I found it difficult to buy new glasses, had to do a bit of a tour of Spotlights to find them. Don’t know if I was just unlucky and they were low on stock, or if they are not going to sell them anymore.

Easter Window at Can Do Books

We set up the window for Easter at Can Do Books yesterday. The bunnies. I made six rabbits from the Making Luna Lapin book by Sarah Peel. Stephanie has make a rabbit also which will be joining the party soon, They are having an afternoon tea party. The comfy chairs pattern in in the Luna Lapin book, and the three garden chairs I found in Geelong last week (will show a better photo of them another day). You can see where the little grey grannie square rug is. The lampshade has little rabbit silhouettes cut out in paper. The tea set I found at Big W. Seems like a very elegant tea party getting underway.

Crocheting Mountains

Made a large wrapped ball and a couple of mountains for Amigurumi Girl 2. This time I pushed quite a few sinkers into the ball while making it. This helps with counterbalancing the girl when she is attached. Last time this was an afterthought and more difficult to push the sinkers in a completed ball. The down side is working out exactly where the weight should be so the whole ball is balanced in the end, easier to do when everything is attached.
