Ribbed Scarf with Hood by A Slight Obsession With Books

Ahhhhhh Teddy looks smashing in this very smart all-in-one ribbed scarf and hood with pockets – a beautiful cozy and GENIUS accessory – esp for folk like me that seem to have the occasional (ahem) problem with losing things!! Am loving the ribbed effect 🙂

Angel Scarf by A Slight Obsession With Books

Carole’s Angel scarf is HEAVENLY! Inspired by one of Lucie’s posts, and crocheted in the most beautiful sock yarn *swoon*. Ilove the gradual colour change which makes the overall effect even more eye catching! I’m off to Ravelry yahoooo

Notion Box by Yarn Chick 40

Lisa-Victoria from Yarn Chick 40 brings us another of her funky Blue Black & White creations (do you remember her cushion and footstool in the same stunning colours??) A painted notion box that looks just perfect as it is, no need for any bits and bobs methinks! Looking forward to seeing what’s next Lisa

Galilee Slippers by Crochet With Tamara

*shriek* No one, I mean NO ONE (not even a 7 foot, scar-faced wrestler) could look at these ADORABLE Galillee slippers and not have a heart melt!! These beauties, made by the  super busy & madly talented Tamara from Crochet With Tamara are so gorgeous they don’t lose their cute-appeal the bigger they get….that means I NEED a pair STAT!

Helen

Crochet Lampshade by Creative Granny

A warm welcome back to Helen from Creative Granny who’s been making some amazing things (please go and browse her blog). Ahhh, the colours, the stripes, the tassels!!  I absolutely love this lamp, such a clever idea,  and as Helen says, a great way to use up left overs. What a way to brighten up a hallway!!

Jill

Autumn Rainbow Beanie by Nice Piece of Work

And staying with colours and stripes, ooooh’s and AHHHH’s, here’s a gorgeous Autumn Rainbow crocheted beanie made by Jill from Nice Piece of Work for a colleague – lucky lady. That is one seriously AWESOME colour scheme and I’m definitely going to be using it!! Another stash busting winner

Rene

Granny Square Poncho by Hav2Havz

Well, I must say I almost stopped breathing when I saw this STUNNING creation – I mean WOW! This beautiful granny square Poncho crocheted by Rene from Hav2Havz is one heck of a jaw-dropper.  Again, the use of colour is fascinating and the rich tassels (for me, the best part) just makes it!!!

Carol

Starry Skies by A Slight Obsession With Books

Welcome back to  Carole from A Slight Obsession With Books who just keeps on inspiring with her wonderful creations. I’ve never seen a design like this one before – her Starry Sky cushion is beautiful and so perfectly sewn.  AGAIN, the colours are fabulous – very striking (see her post for a pic of the back too, love the contrast).

It’s the Weekend! Hope you are all having a relaxing one and doing whatever makes your heart & soul happy. I’ve been busy with all sorts of things that fill me with glee; designing, thinking, writing, packing, problem-solving, crocheting etc so I will spill beans as they all come together.

Well, the July Made it is off to a great start with the first 3 gorgeous entries in but before I show them to you, I’m sure you’ll be keen to see this months prize.

Tamara from Crochet with Tamara, who won the May Made It challenge has so very kindly (and incredibly generously) donated this month’s prize:

Crochet Daisy Cushion by AngellaDeeDesigns

Crochet Pouch by Angella DeeDesigns

First in this month are TWO wonderful projects made by Angella of AngellaDeeDesigns. I say this all the time but DO VISIT HER BLOG! She always seems to be busy with something new, exciting and inspiring.  Her  daisy cushion is so very cheerful and she has included a link to the pattern (very similar to what I’m busy with too!).

I love this pouch –  the little personal touches at the end, the feather, the little bottle with the word HOPE inside…this is exactly what Angella is all about!
