Dare to Wear Crochet

Once I actually dare to crochet, I hope to make something wearable like these tops that were featured at Catwalk Queen.

April swap

I’ve finished shopping for this April Swaporama, and it was fun to let loose in the dollar store. Good thing there’s a colour restriction, or I would have bought everything. I also included recipes for lime and lavender cookies and made a lime and lavender mix CD (on the right). Check out the rest of this Flickr photo set to see notes on what’s in the box!

[Update] Apparently shipping the box air mail would have cost $25 (twice the cost of the contents) so I went with surface mail. It won’t get to Portugal for about…6 to 8 weeks. My swap partner better be a patient soul….

Uh oh, I feel another swap sign up coming on…. These things are addictive. Maybe I should give up on actually crocheting and dedicate my free time to swapping mix cd’s and crochet materials in the mail?

Welcome to my (very empty so far) blog. I’ve just joined Color-iffic Swap-O-Rama:

Swap members collect bits of things around a certain colour scheme and send it away to a predetermined swap recipient. April’s colour combo rocks- purple and green. I enjoyed picking out all the purple stuff, and reluctantly threw a little green in there. I also created a mix cd with a hand crafted cover that is so puffy the cover will no longer close properly. I will post when I get pics.
