Deer stag

This is my latest creation.
It's all about stags and deer this autumn.
I used the tapestry crochet method, 
find out more here .

To make the pillow the right size,
I crocheted several bands of single crochet 
to achive a nice block pattern,  
'patchwork like' effect.
It matches the rest of my cushions.
The left one, I made earlier.
The right one is from Ikea.
I designed this stag for the tapestry crochet.
Feel free to use this grid for whatever project you like,
however I would really appreciate it if you linked back to my site to show where you got it from.
And of course I'd love to see what you made of it.
Happy creating!

Friday afternoon fun with Mod-Podge

I have never tried it before,
but I really enjoyed working with Mod-Podge.
This is what my daughter made;
she glued on the dog (cut from a magazine) 
and pinned the little black and white bow onto the candle.
Crocheted this lovely heart,
click here for pattern
and cut out a heart out of cardstock with a craft punch
and Mod-Podged the clothespin.

Doesn't this make a lovely gift ?

What's on my tray Tuesday -

Last summer I bought a big stash of cotton yarn,
Catania and Phildar .
Together they are good for almost 80 different colours .
Plenty to choose from , so I was able to combine a nice autumn palette
to crochet lots of pieces.

I used stylecraft and  I have completely fallen in love with it,

the softness
and awesome to work with.
Would like to have all the colours and make lots more with this beautiful yarn !
