Beanies in Summer??

It is the last day of summer here in sunny Brisbane and don't ask me why, but I got the urge to crochet a beanie.  I have never done one before so I jumped on pinterest and took a many choices and so many variations!  In the end I settled for  fairly simply looking pattern and got down to it.  

3 hours later I had a rather ugly beanie that didn't fit me.  But the magic of crochet is that you can always pull it apart and start again.  And this time, with the basic understanding of how to make a beanie, I made it up as I went along and ended up with something I rather liked!

I am thinking of writing up the pattern and offering it here for free.  Would you like that?

Colour me happy

I have finally found a silver lining to the yearly 'kids back to school stationery buying drag'
These little beauties just leaped out at me while I dragged myself and two kids through the parent packed isles of Officeworks.  I swear, they did jump out, they did leap up and down and they definitely screamed "you need me"

Happy happy days when I get to sit down and draw with colour, and here are some of the doodles I came up with.  Some of these are for sale on my facebook page.
I was having so much fun creating these images that I also added white pigment in, acrylic paint and colour pencils - fun fun fun!!
