Pink Cowl Poncho

January 11th, 2015

So… I had the flu jab a few months ago… unfortunately, that flu jab has no effect on the strain of flu that is currently going around. Oh well… such is life.

While I was moping around waiting to get better, I saw a lovely picture of a poncho while I was surfing online… not on a wave somewhere. Anyway, found out that the pattern is from Simply Crochet! Of course it is the edition that I didn’t get. I tend to buy the Simply Crochet magazine when I see it about but I guess I didn’t see the November edition when it was out.

The online edition was 99p. I could afford 99p :)

The pattern is for an adult but I wanted to make one for Little Bee. So by altering the pattern and using Sidar Snuggly Snowdrops Chunky yarn and Jarol King Cotton yarn… I made this:

Little Bee loves it. It keeps her neck warm and it doesn’t get in the way of her active movements! Yay!!

Maybe I will make one for myself now :)

Crocodile Stitch Hood – Bonita Patterns

December 1st, 2014

It has been ages since I made anything.

It has a been a long year.

But then I noticed this pattern on Craftsy and it looked really cute, so I decided to purchase it and try it out.

I used different yarn so it came out a bit bigger… but I think it still looks cute on Little Bee :)

Pink Sun Hat

June 13th, 2014

So… I have no idea where her purple sun hat (and I just realised I didn’t put the purple sun hat up here!) is as the house is forever in a mess! I know I should clear the mess but I thought crocheting her another hat would be faster than tidying up.

It’s not actually finished as she wants me to crochet a cat applique for it…

Will add the yarn info later as I’m at work right now and supposed to be doing work!!

It was a hot day on Sunday… so Little Bee shared her water with the Cat.


Don’t worry. I gave her another cup once the Cat dunk her head into Little Bee’s cup.

Whose Net Bag is This?!

May 19th, 2014

One can never have enough bags especially when one goes grocery shopping. So, I decided to crochet a net bag for myself.

The only problem is, Little Bee likes it and it is now hers as she said I must have crocheted it for her as it’s purple… one of her favourite colours.

It is now filled with her moshling figures… which is good as I know now that tiny items won’t fall out from the netting!

When I waited for her to come out from ballet on Saturday, I decided to start on another one… using black yarn. Unless of course Little Bee then decided that she likes black too!

Sunny Sunday Morning…

May 18th, 2014

Is for Mama Bee to clear the garden…

Little Bee to make some mud pie in the garden…

And the cat to just chill in the garden…

Green Spring Cardigan

May 18th, 2014

Yes, I’ve been away for more than a month.

Yes, it’s no longer spring but heading towards summer now.

But… it was still a bit chilly a couple of weeks ago so I crocheted Little Bee a cardigan for her to just throw on if she felt a bit chilly.

It’s a big too big for her so I tighten the stitch around the neck… in red… so when she get’s bigger, I just have to unstitch the red yarn. I know… I’m cunning like that ;)

I used the pattern by Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice here. Crochet hook 6.5mm. Yarn – Hayfield Bonus Chunky lime green (#785) and some chunky red yarn I have around the house that I’ve lost the label… sorry.

Yoyo Biscuits

April 13th, 2014

I bought this book when the Book Club was last at Little Bee’s nursery.

Little Bee’s been asking me to back the yoyo cookies and I’ve just been lazy. I’ve been so ill the past week and today was the first day that I felt that I could do anything… but I’m still feeling pretty awful.

Anyways…. it is from this…

… to this…

Success I think… and it’s pretty easy too… and Little Bee enjoyed making them and eating them!

And when I caught her scrapping the chocolate frosting from the pan she told me ‘I’m not eating it for fun!’. Well… it must be out of necessity then.

Stitching Bee

April 5th, 2014

Little Bee’s Auntie Ruth gave her a little Easter craft bag when we saw her a couple of weeks ago… so this afternoon, Little Bee had a go and making it. She’s getting a bit frustrated at the oopsies and having to unstitch and stitch again… but I told her I’m not going to finish it for her. She has to make the stitching herself. I know… I’m such a horrible Mama.

Patches of Cous Cous

March 22nd, 2014

We picked up an RSPCA cat, Patches, yesterday. And here she is saying hello to our hamster Cous-cous. Isn’t she friendly ;)
