Did you miss me?

Oh dear, oh dear, where has the time gone? Unfortunatley Cosmic Creations has had to take a slight break while I organised myself for the begining of the school year. I had to get my teacher-y hat on and plan for the semester head. But enough of THAT! Back to all that is yarny/knitty/crochety and the like.

::I came across these wonderful Japanese books in Kinokuniya over the January holidays. I know, I'm very bad for not sharing sooner. Here is a sneak peak at some...

This one is my favourite. It's full of scarfs, bags, wraps, and hats and the motifs are all join as you go :: no sewing together at the end!! It's a Japanese book but all the patterns are in diafram format and it is really easy to follow.

Here's another Japanese one, but this one has 100 motifs! All different shapes and sizes for the imagination to play with - the possiblities are endless.








And lastly, I can't forget the book of crocheted flowers. This one isn't Japanese, it's American and has some very inspiring ideas!








 

Now that I'm back into the swing of things I'll post some pics of the ripple cushion soon. In the mean time, here's a pic of Alfons the Pin-eyed Bear (so called as his eyes are held on with sewing pins - don't worry they'll get sewn on soon).

Must dash, just remembered the cotton yarn I had dyeing - oops.
Cheers.
