I’ve been nominated by the very talented lovely Annette at Make Life Cozy to show three pieces of my art every day for five days, and nominate another artist to take the “five day challenge”.
So day 1, I show you 3 photos of things I’ve made over the years and nominate…. MadCrochetScientist of MadCrochetLab.com. Her work really is so much fun and full of personality
So I’m rummaging through my albums trying to decide on three things…
Wow this was the second ever hat I made… A gift for my (then) as yet unborn baby… he was so tiny when he arrived… it’s hard to believe of course, he’s nearly big boy three! I look at this now and see how far I’ve come since this little attempt. I love the colours and the tassel… and he did look soooooo ridiculously cute in it.
The fourth hat I ever made was requested by a friend of a friend… The conversation went a bit like this:
“So…. could you make a Gir hat?”
“I would imagine so… What’s a Gir?”
It seemed so very long ago that I had never heard of Gir nor Invader Zim, the show in which both characters star.
Fast Forward to 2014, soooo many hats and other wonderful things later… my daughter has started nursery.
Mumble: Ma, I think I’d quite like to be a giraffe, when I grow up.
Me: Sounds like a good plan to me.
Mumble. Can you make me into a giraffe please, Ma?
This was a moment of parenting win. Even if I do say so myself.
MumblesMummy: Maker of Epic; Dreamer of Dreams; Granter of Wishes.

And yes…. I AM completely nuts.
