My Creative Space

I am really enjoying my crochet this week...usually I work with thicker yarn but I decided to go a more delicate route. And although it takes so much longer to finish anything I like the feel of it all...

I am not quite finished with this purse,the crochet is done but I need to make a run to the fabric store, to find a lining that will fit nicely with it.





And this scarf, loving the color but it is definitely a "row here and there" project..



Creating along with Kirsty and the gang, come join in on the fun...

Good on you for trying somethign different but still in the rhelm of what you love. Your bag looks great.

And I like the idea of having an ongoing project happening... somethign you can pick up and pup down as your mood / time / kids dictate.

Your purse is really lovely! I like it a lot :-) It's fun trying old skills with new mediums, even if it's just changing the weight of the yarn or the size of the hook!
