A very special capelet
I apologise for the long silence. I've been sick since February, and just haven't had the energy to stay up to date on all social platforms. I even had almost 3 months were I drowned myself in video games, cause I couldn't focus on crafting. But here is a project I really am pleased to … Continue reading A very special capelet

I used my Google-fu to search up all the info I could find, and also scoured my groups on Facebook for … Continue reading Avocado = pink

The yarn I used was pure wool, except one, that I don't really know what it. But some kind … Continue reading Velvet-footed pax
