I've been naughty and haven't blogged! But I have been busy!


And this is why!  I haven't blogged, or been on etsy (except to check if I'd sold anything lol) or anything!  I thought I'd give myself a little break and time to make a whole load of stuff (since I went to a market and wanted enough things to sell) and this is what I have left that you haven't seen before, so obviously I must have made alot haha.  The market stall was ok, I'd do it again, but most of the people were more intent on complimenting me for my work, and not actually buying it.  I made more than I payed for the stall so I guess thats a win for me?  So lets work through all these photos and hopefully get back to normal with the etsy'ing blogging, facebooking and all those other technological things!

This is one of my igne oyasi projects this year.  I'm adamant that I'm going to make a scarf with these flowers on it, even if it takes me 365 days to complete.  The flowers are apple flowers and I love the colours and they go excellently with the colours of the scarf.  I think on each side of the scarf there will be atleast 7 or 8 flowers so thats around 28 or 36 flowers in total.

Oya examples from top down:  Tatted, bead wheel of fortune, crochet, crochet green and pink flowers, crochet daisy, crochet "beard", crochet halay, crochet wheel of fortune (this is an alternate version with the oya stitch yillan kemigi incorperated which is the same stitch you can make oya bracelets with), crochet fingers with nailpolish.

So thats what I've been up to in the past month or so, and I do hope you'll forgive me for my lateness in blogging.  Id like to also thank everyone who has read my blog or followed me.  I'm over 12,000 views now and over 50 followers!  I'm very happy and excited about that. 

I will blog soon, I promise!

Peace x

Lots and lots of lovely things! :) No wonder you've been busy. I think some of the earrings are hairpin lace and I always wonder how to do it. It looks interesting.
Have a great day!

Hi Piwonia, none of the earrings are hairpin lace, however I have made some Oya on this blog with a hairpin. If you're referring to the lilac "flower" type earrings, they're made with a crochet hook :)

Enjoy! xx

wondering why you don't have the bracelet on your etsy site and how much are they for future reference

Hi wendy, the bracelets I didn't put up because I was really just playing around, the clips are cheap and I took these to the market stall I had thinking that kids would be interested in them...I guess I'd sell them for maybe 4 or 5 dollars AUD each. The set that I made (2nd photo) the necklace has a bracelet clasp instead of a necklace one (because I didnt have one at the time) The set I'd sell for maybe 20 dollars I guess..I'm not sure..I didn't think they'd sell on etsy to be honest...
