As usual, I am chock-full of costuming ideas, but woefully short of money to buy them or time to work on them.
This is part eased, part compounded by the fact I've booked a stall at the next Sparkle Sale run by local dancers, and as well as offloading some unwanted gear, am hoping to flog some original crochet designs.
I recently moved offices, and now have an hour or so a day on the train, which is prime time for a spot of hooking. So far I've tried my hand at gauntlets, zill bags, the hand flowers seen above, and even a couple of tribal belts!
I've also developed a real passion for cowrie shells. Shame they're so expensive over here!
