The good side of being, quite literally a bonified and kosher dusty old mole, is that at least I’ve been able to enter the made it monthly challenge, over at the fabulous woolhogs!
In case you didn’t know I’ve opened a Misi shop (make it sell it) you can check out my post here, anyways it has taken up a lot of my time, to say the least! Not only am I very dusty, but the house, well let’s just say we have a bit of a dust situation!
So, as I’ve been so busy being creative, for once entering was a breeze! I chose to enter this gorgeous super sweet waistcoat as it has been a real labour of love! It’s worked in a gorgeous silk and linen rowan yarn mix, like my bag in my post here. I had to add the chunky flower, as in case you hadn’t noticed I’m a bit of a flower power kinda chick!
I hope you guy’s can all forgive me for not posting/commenting as much as normal, but I have a right achy old back, which proves I’ve been slogging my gut’s out, also I can’t stop sneezing which is down to dust more than hay fever!
yikes I finished my bag in time for the made it monthly challenge over at the gorgeous woolhogs by the skin of my teeth!
It’s a sort of combination of lots of things I’ve spied in books and magazines and I love it. I’m trying to make enough stock to start an online shop so I’m a bit of a dusty mole surrounded by yarn and crochet hooks, with a pink bow on my head of course!
recently my beloved hubby told me I would never make enough money for all my time, but that has just made me all the more determined, so watch this mole hole!
ps I can’t wait to tell you about a gorgeous package I received from knitexpressions and heaps of yummy awards to share too!
love and hugs Teresa ♥ (aka dusty mole!)

I got more hooky!
Over at the gorgeous woolhogs, every month they hold a made it challenge. For April, they added a theme ‘seasons’. I really fancied entering and this cute idea popped into my head.
I loved making them, and am hoping to sell some at some local craft fairs if I can take the plunge and be brave!
They are very simple and sweet to make, It’s really just the inside of a granny square, from another fave book of mine, Granny Squares, by Barbara Wilder, Melanie Sturm & Stephanie Gohr.
I used cotton yarn and a 3mm hook, but you can use whatever you like such is the beauty of crochet!
