New Birds...Part Two

More of the new birds I made over the last week...


 This one is different on both sides, love the pattern, it reminds me of henna!

My making to-do list for the next week is huge, but I'll be sharing pics of the hats for Innocent Smoothie's Big Knit campaign tomorrow! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

My makings this week...

As well as ten new robins I have been busy making lots of other new goodies for my stall...
 New dot necklace
vintage embroidery daisy brooches, and lots and lots of crochet star flower brooches...





I've also been working hard on new fabric birds, I'll be back to share them tomorrow!

More New Brooches...

 I've been working away quietly on lots of little things lately, including these brooches with teeny tiny crochet motifs.
The buttons are vintage and the motifs are crocheted sewing cotton. The hook is eye-wateringly small but I'm so happy with how the brooches turned out!
Now begins the hard bit, finding more vintage fabric covered buttons!

More Makings...

I really have been a busy bee! I'm making lots of extra stock ready for the looming Festive Season, trying to spread the work out over so that I don't have a last minute rush! It's been really good to be focussed with a great big to-do list and keep checking things off every day! 
 I've finished all of my polka dot robins now, I'm completely out of the fabric now. Altogether I made six free-standing and four with loops so they can hang in the tree, they're not going to last long though, they're already selling/being reserved!
I'm also crocheting lots of flowers, they are perfect for stocking fillers and have always been really popular so I'm making sure I have plenty in stock! 




 And I've been working on Granny Square kits! Very exciting!
So that's what's been happening over here! What are you up to?!

Makings...

I've been so busy over the last couple of weeks - here are some of my makings...
 Small star flowers


 Double layered flowers

Polka dot cord robins
I'm trying to get a head-start on my Christmas stock making, I seem to be getting along pretty well with it so far! My plan for the next week is ten robins, ten fabric birds and more crochet flowers!
