I've really been getting in to crochet over the last 6 months and have been making samples and experimenting, not always successfully with some free crochet work too. It's portable and, unlike knitting grows very fast. Here are some of my favourite crochet images from some clever crafters that I've been collecting on pinterest recently
Who would have thought you could crochet wigs! It reminds me of those great swimming hats ladies would wear in the 50's.
We all had a lovely Christmas day here at the Burrow yesterday where we seated 12 for dinner, hosted a quiz and provided some very tasty trifle. Dr Bird was head chef and Nick did a grand job of carving the beef.
I'm not sure what role Lily was playing in the preparation of dinner but I'm sure it was delightful and helpful. Cool earrings Lily!
My lovely friend Becky who writes a beautiful blog called Vintage Fairy Tales sent me one of her wonderful photographic prints as a gift. Here's a pic of Becky sporting a very handsome moustache!
My gift arrived in a cleverly decorated envelope with some of the nicest stamps you've ever seen.
I really didn't want to open it as it looked so good. But I am glad I did as the print is quite wonderful.
Many thanks Becky. Take a look at more of Becky's work here.
Have just found this image of some gorgeous paper coffee cups from a McDonald's in Sweden which are decorated with Stig Lindberg designs. What a fabulous idea and why don't we do it here? Actually maybe they do! Either way I want to see more.
Check out these vintage porcelain rings some of which are also original Lindberg designs.

20ELEVEN was an amazing Prince year with excellent shows and incredible releases. An internationally renowned jury put together a shortlist for you to decide whom the winners of this years DaBang Awards will be. Take a moment to leave your vote and don’t hesitate to leave your motivations in the comments. This is all done in good fun so please don't take it to seriously.
Now we are used to the clean Prince that appeared after his conversion to the JW; but once upon a time, Prince released raw, dirty songs dealing with all kind of controversial topics: just have a look at past classics such as Sister, Do me, baby, Come, 18 & over... to mention just a few. And as illustration, just have a look at how that dirty old Prince looked like onstage:
Over the weekend Miss Cream Tease and I have been running a small stand at the very first craft market to be held at the Arlington Hotel, Bournemouth. The event was organised and lovingly curated by the talented Elanor McBay.
We showcased a few of our new samples created for the Gooseberry Tart label that we are launching in March 2012. Here's a gorgeous little capelet made by Miss Cream Tease.
Miss Cream Tease shows us she is THE crochet queen.
We met some fabulous people and made some new friends too.
The sampler set in Prince shows appeared some years ago, and there was some controversy among fans: some said it was boring, and others had great fun.
But some sampler sets are rather special, and this one belongs to this category: it was done during the Toronto show, on November 25th 2011, and besides the usual songs, it included the first public "performance" of Shockadelica.
The quality of the video is not great, but it contains the whole set and, given its rarity, we thought that readers of DaBang219 would enjoy it.
The track list, as posted in PrinceVault, is as follows: When Doves Cry Nasty Girl (instrumental) Sign O' The Times The Most Beautiful Girl In The World Hot Thing w/ band backing I Would Die 4 U Housequake (horn riff) Toronto improv. jam Darling Nikki (instrumental) Mr. Goodnight (instrumental) Shockadelica (instrumental) If I Was Your Girlfriend
Last weekend Miss Cream Tease and I set up a stand at a festive craft do at the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre). It was a 2 day event and this year boasted a whole portion of the floor space being devoted to handmade crafts. It's always great to meet other makers and we also had fun chatting to our customers. A big thank you to everyone that came to see us.
Miss Cream Tease even had her face painted! Wish I'd had mine done too.
