EEE! Ma friend Essie has created another gorgeous x-stich pattern for her etsy store. This time based on her adoration of pretty tea cups.
Though I have ZERO patience for cross-stich on this kind of scale myself (I can’t ever get the backs to look as neat as I’d like! xD Yes, that’s right, I don’t do it because I don’t like the part you CAN’T SEE xD) I’d SO LOVE this whole set in reality. EEEE! The really fat stripey teacup is totally my favourite. So paunchy! xD

SOOO getting my hands on these puppies, the amount of applications of them are SOOO endless! *sewing gasm*

Apple Butter on Marianne Dashwood from Shop Yarn Love
I was bullied by my mans last night into posting a birthday wishlist. As I have no real idea on what I actually WANT O_O;; I decided to instead use it as an excuse to go check out some massive pretties that I’ve been avoiding doing because WHO HAS MONEY FOR THAT?!? xD So this way its not REALLY torture, its research. *nods*
What follows is Part One of my ~research~ xD YARN LOVE!! A whole mess of yarns from stores that I’ve wanted to try out for AGES because the photos make me want to touch them so completely..!

As if The Daring Baker’s Challenge isn’t kicking my arse literally enough, I somehow managed to click “Join this group” on the “10 Shawls in 2010” crochet group on Ravelry.
In a year where I’m attempting to hopefully double my freelance work load, and I’m in more than one wedding. As the Maid of Honour in one of them, and helping plan for a wedding in 2011 where I’m also the Maid of Honour. And other weddings I’ll be in that year besides.
WHAT AM I DOING?! AM I A CRAZY PERSON?!
I was just certified as disabled by Centrelink, and I’m like OH YEAH I’LL TOTALLY OVER ACCOMPLISH, I CAN DO THAT! Um, you’re a disabled person, Nett. How does my brain work? Can anyone explain that to me? Limitations, what ARE they? xD
*searches for free shawl patterns*

Granny Square projects by dottieangel
AUGH! There simply is too many things one wants to do in one’s lifetime. And CLEARLY crochet-ing granny squares is one of them. Dottie Angel’s post, ‘Getting it on with Mr Hook’ has me eyeing my suitcases filled with vintage yarn and my grandmother’s battered hook and needle case with DECIDED scheming in my eyes.
I had been wondering if I could attempt crochet-ing again this year (previously I’ve not been so keen on it because of my back, but I’m feeling adventurous) & Bec‘s Mum had asked if I could do a little crochet for her as a finishing-off of a knitting project she’d done and now this little gem comes along to make me squee and reawaken my crochet-design imagination with the endless possibilities.
Itchy fingers, I has them!
