what you're doing now

or as it could be titled why i haven't been doing much blogging. i'm doing a secret swap on ravelry. the theme is tea/coffee. this is the handmade/big item i am sending to my lady. sure hope she likes it..

the rollup case for crochet hooks. found the pattern here.




i filled it with hooks, yarn needles, scissors, and a retractable tape measure





the teapot and spoon clasp to close it

those danglies are crochet stitch markers, that i made.


i didn't make the beads, i bought them at oriental trading company.

aren't they cute



when i was younger i beaded all the time, and it is nice to get back to it. working with these beads has me wanting to start my lampwork bead making up.




sorry he's blurry. i just thought he was so cute he needed a picture of his own





it is a little coffee mug




this is the prototype that i made for me.
i hope you enjoy what you see i will send this and the rest of her box off tomorrow. take care and until next time....
