From one extreme to the other....
I have been having fun doing a couple of different projects this week. From the tiny hook 1.5m for the beaded jug cover to hand size for the crocheted Granny floor rug.
Each project has had its challenges disregarding the difficulty of just changing between hook sizes.
The beaded jug cover is a first for me and it is not perfect but I am happy with how it went. Nan has been asking me for ages to make her one so I gave it a go and Ta-Da!!
The floor rug also had its problems! I absolutely LOVED making it, it was so rewarding and fun!! My challenge is going to be sourcing the raw materials. I would like to make it out of cotton rope but up here in FNQ I am unable to obtain it for less than $1.40 a metre! Just one granny square will need between 70 and 100 metres depending on how many rounds I choose to do....
So there is the dilemma, how on earth will anyone be able to afford the rugs even if I made them at cost and threw in my time just for the fun of making one???
Maybe I will have to look offshore for a cheaper source??
What do you think, keep going or scrap the idea and put it on my to-do list for when I am rich and famous??
Now for just a teaser of something else I have been creating....
I will be able to reveal in a couple of weeks. Pop over to Kirsty's for more of this weeks creative genius :-)
