Bamboo Wrap

  • Posted on November 19, 2010 at 4:20 PM

My current crochet project is another project for me! Wow, I must be spoiling myself! I am making myself a light shoulder wrap in black bamboo. I love bamboo for the fact it is a sustainable crop and the resulting yarn (although treated with all sorts of things and is classed as rayon) retains many of its natural properties and is so soft against the skin.

Bamboo Wrap start

This is it so far, not a lot, I know! The main part will continue straight and then it will finish with the triangle shape again. The girls’ ballet classes have finished so that’s an hour and a half a week I won’t have to sit down to work on it now :( Hopefully it will be finished soon as the weather here is crazily cold at the moment and I need something to cover my shoulders when wearing my summer dresses! I just refuse to get winter clothes out in November in Sydney!! I am hoping to finish it with some beads around the outside.

Glue Gun

I’ve been thinking of buying a glue gun for a while now (they look cool and seem to be very useful) but don’t really know much about them or what exactly they are good for. What’s the difference with the hot gun? I was thinking of using it for decorating hair clips and the like but not sure if that is what I should be using.

If anyone out there can help me with some information, I would greatly appreciate it.

Stamp Stash De-Stash

Ok, the time has come to really be sensible about what craft things I stash! The excess is stifling my creativity :( !! It is time to de-stash some of my rubber stamps – all Stampin Up! brand – that I have bought with all sorts of great intentions and ideas but have either never used or maybe used once before having great intentions and ideas for another set!

I will be listing them with a photo and price on my Facebook page under the Photos tag. At this stage, I can only offer them to Australian residents who can pay by direct deposit. If you would like more than one set, I will try to combine them in one parcel and let you know the final price.

Please feel free to ask about any of the stamps.

If you don’t have access to Facebook and you are interested in any stamps, please let me know and I will see what I can do for you.

Here is a sample.
