Seriously Crochet !!

Standard

Today I would like to highlight my first love in craft. Crotchet!.


I first fell in love with crotchet 5 years ago just when I got my first .Ageno. It was a trying time being a mother for the first time and it was also a time of self discovery. My need to improve myself and learn new things led me one day to google crochet and there an amazing world of colours string and hooks was opened to me.


I love to crotchet because to me it is like a special language, a special code, a way for people to express what is inside and create amazing things. Gosh,I could drone on all day if anyone let me. The versatility of crochet is what captivates, actually. How you can make just about anything with it. The possibilities are limitless as your imagination.from the simple booties, hats and scarves, to playgrounds made only of crotchet ! to doilies (which were very popular with our mothers and what we know as vitambas ) to bags, shoes, seriously limitless!.

Ok, I will admit for the longest time that crochet was one of the the last things I took seriously. Crotchet was knitting and knitting was crotchet in my world. Then came this evening not so long ago from today, I was poking fun, pun intended, at Evie about it. She had been encouraging me to take up crotchet. and her best pitch until then was, “Dudes are actually really good at this’. Ridiculous right?.” So what do you see in this”. I was still unconvinced. The she goes on to explain how she sees fractals in the patterns she’s crotcheting. It took me while to pick what was left of my jaw from the floor. ‘You see fractals when you are crotcheting!?” now I was intrigued. Imagine that if you can and if you don’t know what a fractal is then you’ve got some homework to do…Am now thinking of signing up for classes, seriously fractals?.

P.S. I still have enough humble pie left if anyone is interested.

The Jimmy Choo

Standard

Slide1

Last week I had the good fortune of getting to repair a Jimmy Choo bag. Let me just start by saying that I’am a seriously great admirer of all things Jimmy Choo and I think his shoes are absolutely divine. His hand bags are just as  fabulous and for someone to entrust me with their seven hundred dollar Jimmy Choo…you can imagine my delight.

Slide2

So this Jimmy Choo had a busted zip and a seriously torn lining. Which begs the question; how do you go about making a hot Jimmy Choo even hotter than when you found it?

Slide3
You add an ultra cool Ankara wax lining and can absolutely say that I went to town on that bag and got it looking better on the inside than the original. Did I mention that I never held anything that expensive with my bare hands! It was my great pleasure doing it and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. So anyone out there have a bag they want fixed?
Ciao peeps,
