Frida Kahlo embroidery

3 May

It is a very rare treat these days when I get to crafty up something just for the sheer hell of it…
Here are some pics of an embroidery I made of Frida Kahlo a few months back. It came about from the urge to do something/anything using an embroidery hoop and a primal need to embroider a moustache and monobrow onto someone’s face (pregnancy related craving?).

It was fun to make.

There are vague plans for a David Bowie next – but with the impending arrival of smalls number 2 arriving in just over a month, I can’t see that actually happening for a while now, eh…?

Jet’s Advent Calendar

23 Dec

Hurrah and huzzah and Merry Christmas!!
Not that I am cutting things a bit fine here with it being the day before Christmas Eve and all, but I have JUST finished Jet’s advent calendar!
The good thing is that there is still one day left this year in which it can legitimately be used – but the best bit is that Jet doesn’t really know what an advent calendar is, so she doesn’t even know how ridiculously late it is – YAY!

This is my first ever knitting pattern, so I am quite pleased with myself for actually having pulled it off. The idea was adapted from something I found a while back through Google Images. Each of the lights makes a little pocket for you to put choccies or other little treats for each day of advent – CUTE!
It has been a complete mission getting it finished off as I don’t have so much time for luxuries such as knitting little whatnots these days. I am really chuffed with the results though and I am hoping that if it goes down well with the ┬ásmall person, it can be one of those things that can come out year after year as a family tradition (not that I am getting slightly ahead of myself here or anything!).

Here’s some pics anyhoo:

Merry Christmas one and all – I hope you have an ├╝ber-cool yule!

Much love from, Bird Face x x x
