Crochet on a Wet Afternoon

It was very disappointing yesterday to discover our local bank holiday fair, the Redland May Fair, had been cancelled. Disappointing, but not altogether surprising, given that we are experiencing the monsoon season round these parts.

So we stayed in, watched some slightly trashy vintage TV (classic Star Trek and The Saint, with Roger Moore eyebrow-acting), and I did some cheerful crochet. I'm really enjoying these bright colours of yarn.

I did some colourful, doodly drawings recently, too. I used a doll's face as a starting point, and drew madly-patterned bodies for them.

It's very therapeutic, setting to with a bunch of felt pens and making patterns. I'd like to develop these further, but, as ever, I'm not sure how...

I like these - a lot. They would be lovely in a row, "hands" connected as if they were paper dolls. I love the way they have a folky/peasanty look to them.

Hi, only just found this here blog and I love it!
That doll doodle is amazing, surely saleable as a piece of art.
Just going back to read some more, I spotted some pink plastic so that's me sold.
