my creative space ... and the winner is ...

Well folks here it is ... if your computer has not melted at the sheer photographic weight of this post while it loaded up then you are about to see proof that you can indeed take a crochet hook on a plane! Yes, the hosties may do a double take or two as they pass you by but not once was I questioned about my hook! Woo hoo! And so I give you ...

Double, Double Hook and Travel!

on our way back to Frankfurt. The perfect way to avert one's eyes from the scary stuff happening on the autobarn.

a kindred spirit on Portobello Rd

Ah and the best bit ... meeting a kindred crocheting spirit along the Portobello Rd!

A massive "thank you" to all the entries in my naming competition. By god they made me laugh! In the end I found it too hard to pick a winner so handed it over to my beautiful friend Antonia, who picked the above title by the gorgeous Christina ! Congratulations Christina! Can't wait to send of the parcel of goodies.

Now for more creative spaces pop on by Kirsty's place ;)

  2. Oh I am terribly sorry I missed out on your giveaway, the spiralling vortex of awfully busy has sucked me dry on the blogging front.
