Here are some recent projects I have not shown here. I keep my Ravelry project page updated, but have missed showing these on my blog.

Another flower accent from my free pattern, to complete the look of the cute little bag :)

Another scarf from my pattern Striped Scarf with Knotted Fringe

Another coin bracelet made from my free pattern.

And here's my kitchen WIP, you'll find the details here in my food blog ;)

Coin Bracelet - a free crochet pattern

I came up with this design for want of something to do with our flimsy 5-centavo coins. Since it had a hole in the center, I thought to crochet sc's into it and it seemed to work. Try it and see ;)

Pattern can be found here on Facebook.

New Toys!

Just want to show you two inexpensive but useful toys that I've recently bought :)
Since my brother was enjoying the stuff that he bought from Manafont, I thought to order some myself. These came from HK, shipping already included in the price and the additional cost for mailing with tracking is only $2. per package. (This is not an advertisement!)
If you find these in Divisoria or elsewhere, please let me know so I can compare prices... Though I love the convenience of ordering online!

Pocketsize Digital Scale for $8. (P342.)
Flexible Desktop Camera Tripod for $4.57 (P195.)

This pocket digital scale will be very useful in weighing thread balls or yarns, jewelry, small finished items,  leftover yarn, etc....Can be handy on the kitchen too for measuring spices or other small ingredients :)
Note: I used the desktop tripod to take this picture ;)
