Hi, just to share with you the progress in my little garden. The sweet potatoes are growing well but haven't found any turnips yet. Yay!

A fresh beginning...

My first project of the year is two crocheted Stitchy Scrubbies from Crochet Today March April 2009 issue.  I simply fall in love with the popcorn stitch that just pops up! They are quick to make and can be completed in a few hours.  I think they turned out great and are too pretty to use....hmm...maybe can just hang them as decoration!

Anyway, these were made for Pei Chyi as a housewarming gift.  Hope she like's it!:)

Owls and Motifs

I saw this adorable owl tote and just have to make one for my niece, Elaine. At first I was quite reluctant to start a tote project with motifs as I just dread weaving in ends and seaming, but I was wrong! It is very addictive and here is the result:

I added a lining with zip:

The ears of the owls curl badly, so I will need to pin and steam block before gifting to my niece.  

A glimpse to my next  project is this African Flower motif:

Make a guess! What do you it's going to be??
