Things to do while watching TV...

I don't mind a bit of crochet every now and again. Not necessarily to produce cute 'stuff', more for relaxation. I also have this 'thing' that i can't just solely sit and watch TV, i have to do something else at the same time (i wonder what that means?). It can be reading, writing, cooking, work, and crochet fits nicely into that catagory. Here is my most recent completed work,

a grey, organic bamboo/cotton shawly poncho whatsit.

I've also added a recycled brooch to it. It just needed 'something', and i had some little dolls from a childs broken necklace, so i popped them onto an old brooch back with a couple of old sleepers (the kind you put in your ears).

Now i just have to wait for the weather to let me wear it. In Perth that will probably be sometime around mid August!


  1. I love your weird ways and your shawly poncho whatsit...What a lovely way to start my day, an email from Guilt and Whimsy... x

    1. Thankyou to my first and best subscriber, my husband! x

  2. Oh. That comment above is so sweet.
    Lovely shawl and brilliant brooch. I'm like you - can't just sit and watch TV without doing something else. If I do then I'm likely to be asleep within five minutes!!!

  3. Aww, lovely! Anything I could say just doesn't measure up! But that is one cute little brooch idea and I love your new poncho!
