Today I learnt how to add buttons onto my blog, I have been trying for ages but finally the penny dropped and BINGO!
So to celebrate I'm publicly committing to support the Softies for Mirabel-Christmas Craft Appeal!

So now I will busy myself with the crochet hook and create away!
I previously made my son a crochet softie named Ted, and I have used Pip's "Meet me at Mikes" fame, Panda crochet pattern for a friends new baby, so there are no excuses!

Meet TED, I modified the panda pattern from Meet Me At Mikes, great book!

Meet Panda, my first ever crochet toy, what a challenge, it took me 5 goes to get it right but perseverance wins out in the end!

:: Ouch Flower

New Ouch Flower logo.

I have been busy trying to design a logo for Ouch Flower to create a unified look to the blog and whatever I'm making at the moment and I been applying the design process to many ideas when ...WHAM
I realised that I already have one!

This design was created recently at a screen printing class at Harvest Workroom in Brunswick.

 A one off tea towel design, no planning, no development just in the moment and I believe that if an ouch flower was a real flower and you could buy one at the flower shop..well it would look like this!
Now for the fun part, applying this design to more things!
