“Tunisian wire bracelet” by knitrun4sanity

Before we officially open the floor for voting, have a look at this beautiful bracelet by Knitrun4sanity. Every time I look at her work my jaw drops just a little lower – I mean, just look at it, crocheting with certain yarns can be tricky but this is WIRE! Also, this is not just crochet, its TUNISIAN crochet (and that’s all without the delicate bead work…..) Simply beautiful.

The next few Feb “Made It” Entries!

I hope you all have a fun and lovely Valentines Day and your cup of love is not just topped up, but is overflowing!. I spent the evening with my hubby, the kids and some of my beautiful friends eating pizza, and ice cream with the most home-made delicious choc sauce….What more could a girl want?! One of my friends arrived with the most beautiful bunch of tulips for me – my hands down favourite flowers

Ahhhh they make me so happy 🙂

Tulips = LOVE

Right, back to the very important and very fun business of introducing you to the next batch of “Made It” entires!

“Crocheted Flower Coasters” by Angella

Have you every “not” met someone face to face, yet you can hear their voice and you just KNOW the good heart that they possess? Well, this has been my experience with the lovely Angella from Angella Dee Designs. We have only “met” in cyberspace and she is a regular customer to my humble shop yet her wonderfully warm and infectious nature flows out of every picture she posts and every word she writes. Please go and have a look at her blog say hello! While you are there, check out these sunny, happy flower coasters – I used to be a non-believer, but now I’ve absolutely no doubt that there is real and deep need for colourful coasters and cosies in this sometimes-drab world!

“Cafetière Cosy” by Rainbow Junkie

And in keeping with my firm belief of warm coffee and that EVERYTHING deserves a cosy, THANK YOU Jane from Rainbow Junkie for not only making and entering this fabulous cafetière cosy in beautiful beachy colours, but for bringing this incredible (and intimidating – you have to draw your hook through seven loops!!) stitch to our attention. I’m definitely going to give this one a go….but only when the heat finally cools down here in Cape Town #melting

“Boho African Hexagon crochet bag” by Ruby Red Eclectic

A massive warm welcome to a Lynne from Ruby Red Eclectic, a Cape Town based magician of yarn! This lovely lady makes the most insanely stunning goods that leaves one feeling a tad confused as to why one thought that one could actually crochet!!! Just kidding…but seriously though, her stuff is amazing. How beautiful are these colours??!!!

The pattern for this boho  African Hexagon crochet bag can be found through her blog.You ladies are in for a treat…..mmmmhhhh

“Tweet Tweet mobile” by Show Us Your Crafty Bits

And another massive welcome and virtual high-five to Lyndellmaree from Show Us Your Crafty Bits…I still giggle whenever I see this, if there was a prize to be awared for the Best Blog Name then I’d be presenting it to her now! Her sweeeeet Tweet Tweet mobile is going to the second best new addition to the nursery (obviously the top spot goes to the new little nunu). There is a great link to for the birdie templates too so go and check it out. How coincidental that this months prize is a mobile too 🙂
