The great thing about Father’s Day is that it’s yet another great excuse to get crafty so I hope the men in your life got lots of glittery cards, tons of crocheted/knitted warmies and stuffed themselves silly with homemade cupcakes/pies/chocolates etc. I’d love to say that my hubby got lots of homemade things (oh, ANY excuse for me to sit down and crochet PLEASE), but instead he got a FULL ON party with 50 friends, mounds of delicious curries, a massive chocolate cake, and DJ which kept everyone boogie-ing on the dance floor until midnight. OK, so it was his 40th birthday which basically turned into 3 day affair. I mean, really. What a cheek to turn 40 AND have Father’s Day the next day AND a public holiday after that. Hmmmph!
We did have an absolute ball though, AND just to top it off we went to see Eddie Izzard live at Cape Town’s Grand West Arena last nigh….I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that straight-high heel clad-cross dressing-makeup wearing-multi marathon runner-funny man! So we’ve only just got back into “normal” mode and I’m feeling tired…but the relaxed, good kind!
So with my feet up, here are the next few entries into June’s fast-filling-up Made It challenge!
The sun is definitely shining somewhere in the world – my goodness, it’s IRELAND too! Look at these gorgeous summer sandals crocheted by Serena, one of our Facebook page members. I imagine that while taking this pic with one hand, there is a delicious cocktail in the other.. am I right?!
If you are a regular reader of the Made It posts, then you will recognise the fab colours of this granny square cushion made by Lisa Victoria from YarnChick40! It perfectly matches the funky poof/ottoman she made ages ago. Well done LV for a beautiful set and another WIP done and dusted..HI5!!!
Ahhhhhhh, this magical, delicate and utterly delightfully beautiful, felted and winged fairy mobile was made by Aviena from AvienaDawn . How gorgeous is she! She was made especially for Z who is, no doubt, a very happy girl – pop over and read her post for more dreamy pics ♥
I love this crochet rug! Elena of Beatrice Ryan Designs, who is a completely machine when it come to churning out all sorts of wonderful designs/creations has entered this bright, whimsical patriotic rug for a fair. I’m thinking how absolutely stunning a SA flag/rug would look…hmmmm
What a lot of creativity and new goodies a rainy day can bring. This is another thing I love about the Made It challenge – it’s not about just knitting/crochet, it’s all about being creative and enjoying it! Check out the these two great projects by Mtetar of Projects by Mtetar!
WOWWEEE, what a stunning shawl, knitted with the softest baby Alpaca yarn! This entry (her first!!) was submitted by Verena Hinsch of Mukuti Stud Alpaca who produce the most amazing Alpaca yarns right here in SA! I feel all warm and fuzzy just looking at it…simply gorgeous
These next two entries are from Kaiserin of Empress27 who is a whizz with wool / fibre freak and has a passion that’s so infectious! This sweet baby cardi and these delicious little baby socks are her latest creations. I can see how making those little socks could be addictive!
I hope you enjoyed ogling at these!
The collection is still open for another 8 days, so there’s lots of time to get busy and submit (I’m talking about myself here too…eeek)
