Crochet hook wrap

Good morning all, wow it makes a change me
being up this early in the hols.
Had to go to the Dr's for my 3 yearly woman's
check if you know what i mean.
The only appointment they had left this week was
8.15 so i had to drag myself out of bed.
Ooh that was hard, i was nice and warm and cosy.

It's a bit chilly here today it feels like
Autumn is coming, next thing the spiders will
be everywhere. Don't you just hate that when
you walk through a web.

Anyway on to my crochet project.
I have bought a few hooks over the last year and 
had nothing to keep them in so i decided 
to make a wrap or roll or whatever you want to call it.

Isn't the wool just fab i saw it 
in my local wool shop and thought it would
make a great Teddy and it does, so i 
used what was left to make this roll.
The wool is Paintbox DK by Robin if you want to know,
they had some fantastic colours. I also got one 
that was in pale blues and browns although 
haven't decided what to use it for yet,
I just thought it looked pretty. lol..

The material sort of goes but it was all i had,
so instead of buying more i thought i would use
up what i had already got.

I have made extra space for my new hooks
that are on the way at the moment.
I have bought a set of Bamboo hooks, and
apparently they are supposed to be really smooth
and get better the more you use them because 
of the oils in your hands, so time will tell.
Just got to wait for Mr Postie to bring them.
hope that's today.

Oh well best go and get my Breakfast now.

Happy Birthday Jack

Hi again i'm back with this weeks 

We have a fabulous sketch from our very talented 
Dawny P to follow and this week
we are sponsored by
Simon Says Stamp.

A bit of a different card for me this week
It's my sons birthday end of this week
and gosh he's 14.
He loves graffiti art and he is always
doodling his name in tag form.
So i decided to add some 
graffiti style letters on his card.
I looked through images on the Internet and 
came across this style, printed off the 
alphabet then with a light box traced it onto 
super smooth card  ready to colour with my
Polychromos pencils.
I noticed a lot of the art is multicoloured
and i love Red, Orange and Yellow together
and they are suitable for a guy.

I turned the sketch upside down i thought it 
would work better for me that way

The papers are from Raspberry Road.
The stamp is from a retro transport 
stamp set from Kanban crafts.
The buttons were all a pale yellow so i
coloured them with permanent marker pens
to make them match, and added contrasting wool.

I think i'm safe showing it to you all before he 
sees it he never looks on my page 
"It's all about cards, it's boring"
is what he said the one and only time he looked.
If it's got nothing to do with XBox,
BMX, skateboarding or camper vans
he's not interested.

Thanks for looking

Marianne creatables die for the doily.
I inked round the edge of the image with
tumbled glass distress ink.
