Crochet Catch-up!

I've been neglecting my blog in preparation for my cousin's wedding/kenduri, but here's a catch-up of all my crochet projects, finished and unfinished. Will be posting about the kenduri soon, but for now...it's crochet fever!

More crochet flowers to add to my collection! I've found double yarn crocheting a fun experience!! See the colour combinations, the more unlikely the colours the better.
Marigolds of all sorts of colours and size. I've been experimenting. That reminds me, I've run out of buttons, must make some more.
The flower that inspired my big project, a tote bag with two yarns. A simple double crochet all round tote. A relaxing project but the colour is very nice to work with.
The base of a crochet booties. This is actually my second pair, my first pair was given to Kit Yee and I've no photos to show off. See how nice the two colours blend together. MW, you must try this!!!
The finished bootie for a newborn. Congratulations Edmund & Serena on your new baby boy - Ethan! Hope the bootie fits your cute little baby.
Side view of bootie. Of course, buttons on each side!

Kit Yee's 1st Birthday gift, a pair of booties. I think I made them too small. Nevermind, will make a bigger one for you next time! It's the same bootie pattern, just without the bands. I replaced those with ribbons and to embellish, a simple crocheted flower with leaves.
Awww! Aren't they sweet. I want to make some more! Cousins, please hurry up with the lineage work. Can't wait to give you these booties. Hint! Hint!

Look Ma! I've Learnt To Cast!!

The best thing to do on a boring weekend - is go fishing with dad and give mom a nice break!!! Yippee!
Model for hire? Anyone? Haha! He's grown to be a charmer isn't he?
Nigel went fishing with his dad last week and although the catch wasn't great, he told me proudly that he has learnt to cast his line - and at a 20ft distance. (Wow!) Here's my boy doing his thing.

Here's my 'Favourite colour exchange' parcel to Usha. Her favourite colours are soft pastels so I made her one of my cupcakes, added some stash for cardmaking, some Nona yarns and a gift for each of her three lovely girls. Usha, by the way - is an expert crocheteer! (She has not a blog, but we're trying to convince her she should!!!)

A cupcake with baby blue puff and a small piece of lace to resemble piped icing. I got Usha a craft storage box and personalised it for her.
The stash and a card, all in her favourite pastel shades.
