Scrap Happy ~ September

Time to link up with the many fabulous scrappy crafters who create fabulous items. Special welcome to our newest member Nóilin, I am looking forward to viewing your creations.

This group was put together and is nutured by Kate & Gun. If you wish to join, their links and all my friendly craft buddies is at the end of this post.

Scraps come in all shapes, sizes and medium. With the need for EPP templates and no luck acquiring the correct size. Google to the rescue, some recycled paper from a print out – Oops. A little time snipping into size and my EPP is ready for the next stage. Using scrap greens. Thus teeny, tiny project is underway.

Before I tackle my triangles, some scrap petals prepped ages ago, during my EPP cut out mania moment. LOL 😆

Anyway, Happy Stitching 💚 Debbierose

Couch Time?

Last Christmas as a holiday airplane project. I started to piece pentagons for Christmas Decorations.

After a few false starts, several sessions pf frogging. A friend had a brilliant idea. Don’t embroider with Elements Metallic Thread, couch it down instead.

Game changing idea – Thanks to Jill G.

Bells in progess

Star Power complete

I plan to add wadding, back them with firm felt and Pink into shape.

Until next time 💝 Debbierose

August Scrap Happy

Its August already. The time flying fast. Yet, this past month was time poor and lacking in motivation. I have instead been sorting, ironing scraps into colour tubs. Attempting to organise and inspire myself.

Stumbling on my paper tape rolls. I started my scrap roll. It’s fiddly, yet interesting. Also great scrap border prep for some distant future project.

Please pop over and visit the blogs of my scrappy blogging friends. They always inspire. This group is lead by 2 go getters Kate and Gun, incredibly talented and motivated with a sewing machine.

Here’s the links and Happy Stitching 🧡 Debbierose

2 tone border

Hi Everyone,

Not much has been happening. However still managed a few crochet stitches. Experimenting with different stitches in this 2 tone throw rug. Now onto the border and a twisted 2 tone border to top it off.

Until next time, Happy crafting 💛 Debbierose

No scrap news to post for myself this month. Busy with other items, illness and family issues. Nothing to serious, yet time consuming.

Happy Scrapping 💙 Debbierose

June Yarning

The Antartic Cold Chill Blast has arrived to mark another season change. June in the land of Oz, the southern end has begun. We have had off and on unseasonably sunny and warm days. Perfect weather to sit under a rug and crochet project.

I am still crocheting and have made 4 granny triangles, using my scrap yarn. It is diffusing the vibrancy of the rainbow yarn and making it sing.

They will be stitched on the side in this format to create a radiant 🌈. Then I will decide on a border.

Until next time Happy Stitching 💜 Debbierose

Scrap Happy ~ May

My scrap happy May journey, utilises yarn left overs, some large and one gifted. I had leftover rainbow yarn. Tried several designs, frogged several times. Until The lovely ladies in Australia Crochet facebook page suggested a granny triangle.

from this ripple that looses it in colour pooling too……

Lots more rows and 3 triangles to go to become a prettier rainbow version. Surplus cream, from baby throws complete this piece.

Then a full 3 ply cake of variegated green. Half knitted by a friend who ripped it out as too dark for her liking. I am using the Ravelry free pattern Grace. Once complete it will go back to my friend to keep, gift, donate to local seniors club for a raffle prize perhaps. Its been a fun pattern so far.

Grace in progress
This yarn does edge toward the dark side….

That’s it for now. Do go checkout the talents of my fellow ScrapHappy bloggers.

Take care 💜 Debbierose

Another good yarn….

You may recall last month I knitted my 1st Adult Beanie. My beanie journey continues as the 1st fitted its recipient perfectly. To add to the recipients collection more beautiful bamboo and one in BMW Cotton. Then a local craft store had faux fur pom poms and denim flowers on sale, the perfect finishing for the next beanie batch. The last in Be Seen Be Safe Orange, a special request for a low bun slot beanie. It was fun tweaking 2 patterns, merging to create this bright beanie. And a quick poppy for Anzac Day.

Be Seen, Be Safe

Until next time

Happy Stitching 💚💛🧡❤ Debbierose
