hopping mad

Here's a lovely selection of the most adorable bunnies sewed, knitted and crocheted!

I'm already considering making at least one of these as a Christmas gift for a friend.

What are you planning to give?

Or is it too early?

marilyn monroe

Whenever I look at photographs of Marilyn Monroe

I feel hypnotized. I can stare at her for minutes,

drinking in her ethereal beauty,

but always with a touch of sadness.

It is so clear to me that she paid a terrible price

her whole life for the gift she had:

mesmerizing everyone (even today) with her allure.

"Imperfection is beauty,

madness is genius

and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous

than absolutely boring" - M Monroe

uk hand knitting association

Die UK Hand Knitting Association hou jaarliks kompetisies

vir die beste brei/hekelwerk.

Die trui hierbo is reeds in 2005 ontwerp en gebrei deur Seung Hee Lee.

Sy't die derde prys gewen.

Hulle hou 'n versameling van hekel- en breipatrone aan op hulle webwerf

(kry dit hier).

Hulle sê self:

"We are now at a stage where 'knitting' is the new 'buzz' word,

knitting groups are mushrooming all over the country,

knitting shops are opening back on the High Streets and on the Internet

and exciting new yarns are being introduced by the season.

None of this would have been possible without you,

our knitters."

Die trui hierbo is deur Jacob Oram, 'n finalis in 2010, gebrei

en geïnspireer deur bome en boomwortels van Engeland.
