Crafty Jayne is Feeling Poorly

OMG I have a banging headache a bit like a migraine and I feel like laying down and doing nothing, I am not sleeping properly due to KJ snoring he is so loud.

Smokey Pink Rose

I have so many inspirations to make things whizzing around in my head and I can’t do any of them so I have no choice but to give up today.

I am diabetic and that normally makes me feel like rubbish every morning and along with this headache, I just feel done in.

I tried to change my pink top using a No.6 hook and it just kept going wrong, you know what I think it is the yarn, it is too thick it would be more suited to a scarf I think, so I have gone back to normal double knit yarn, I did a row of pattern but that’s it until I feel better.

I thought I would share a lovely Rose in a vase, I drew this many years ago and will be doing some drawing in the near future but right now I’m going for a lay down…

Re-Cycle Old to Something Cute

I am following a blog called Our Little Red House Blog, and I came across a really good article called:

Dollar day do over…upcycled coat

It was all about getting something from a what we call in the UK a ‘Charity Shop’ and re-cycling the item we bought into something really cute, in this case a coat was made into Ladybirds and they are fabulous, you can see them for yourself by clicking this link:


It’s worth a look, they are really cute, she is a very talented lady with a great creative mind.

Frills Are In

Well frills are in so they say, I must admit I do like to add a frill to my crochet projects, it gives them a little kick.

I recently crocheted a baby or doll blanket, it wasn’t mega big and it looked ok until I added a frill, I then thought wow it looks good and even the pattern looks a nicer.

This lovely blanket is in my Etsy Store, see how the edging sets it off, oh and meet my little model, her name is baby Jayne and she will be modelling all my projects, she is so cute, the only thing is she has no hair, maybe I will have a go at making her a little wig lol.

I wonder what a scarf would look like with a frill on the long edges, mmm (thinking) maybe I will have a go at one, crochet is so easy to undo and start again if I really don’t like it.

I hope you are enjoying my blog as much as I am writing it, if you are re-blog and share with your friends.

Take care

Colourful Things

My thoughts on colour, this is not a poem or anything like that, it is just some of my thoughts I want to share with you.

What would the world look like if it were Black n White
It would be so cold and empty
Like the loneliest night

Colour is all around us
Look around you
It’s all taken for granted
It’s all we knew

Take 5 minutes to really see
All the colours that make our lives special
But we don’t look, just take for granted
As we live our lives and pass them by
