Wacky, Whimsical & Wonderful Wednesdays

Hello, how are you all doing this mid week? I have had a very productive week so far, plenty of knitting completed resulting in a sizeable dent in my to do list. Looking like I might make my mid September deadline 🙂 I have also been busy putting together mini tutorials to accompany some of my up coming designs. Page space is always a premium in the magazines and in an ideal world it would be great to be able to give more detail about how you achieve a certain technique, especially in these exciting times when so many designs span more than one craft. You will see ‘how to’s’ appearing in my blog as the designs are published in the magazines, I would be really interested to get your feedback.

‘Wacky, whimsical & wonderful Wednesday’s’, thought I would keep the title simple! what’s that about? Well, I think I have a bad case of hyperactive hands! They just have to be doing something; when nothing is provided for them to do, they make me eat biscuits! As you can imagine most of the time I have needles or a hook in my hands, but the rest of the time I have an addiction to my iPad. My iPad is my ‘other stuff’ enabler, I love reading blogs, checking out the cute, the funny and learning new stuff! I thought I would share with you some of the things that I have enjoyed during my week, be it funny, cute, newsworthy or inspiring. I will do my best to credit the original source and post links, so you can visit the sites and give praise where it is due.

Feel free to send me a link in the comments, to anything I have missed this week and I will share what I can next Wacky, Whimsical & Wonderful Wednesday (too much?).

First up this week has to be this, stroke of genius. Once I got past the, ‘how could you do that to your hard work’, I thought fair play you are blocking and that took some ingenuity.

Next came this… don’t know about you but my initial reaction was awwww, swiftly followed by, ‘what kind of mind thinks of these things?’

What’s the point of having turtles if you don’t have a little fun with them?

News worthy….  For those of you who have been following Design Wars 4,  you will be pleased to know that most of the patterns are now available to download.  My hyperactive hands have been itching to get stuck into making the ‘Dancing Hearts Wrap by Marinke Slump, aka Winkieflash.

Please check out Wink’s website and blog, A creative being, all things crochet by Winkieflash.  I am a big fan of Wink’s designs particularly her collection of Mandalas she has created for Simply Crochet Magazine.  Something about the colour palette Wink uses, that just screams ‘eat me’.

Enjoy the rest of your week,
