I'm a maker. Crochet, embroidery, knitting - I'll try anything. I used to make pincushions which explains my name πŸ˜‰

See! This is why I don't like pink. It worked perfectly in blue. I didn't make noodles with blue. πŸ˜‰ #crochet #crochetaddict #designing #starlightstarbrightbabyblanket

wildaboutyarn : Hahaga!!!! Cool then i'd better hurry up!!!!! πŸ˜‰@spincushions @imagineknits.and.husky
kelly_rani : Pattern?
kelly_rani : I think the pink makes it look more like a starfish so you could have a multipurpose pattern ☺️
spincushions : I'm writing it as we speak @kelly_rani 😊 i need to make lots more and have it tested before its released though. I'll be posting here and on my blog when its ready 😊
mrsdaftspaniel : Oh dear :( Blue is definitely your signiature colour! :)
kelly_rani : Yay! It looks like it will be cute! Will keep my eye out for the pattern.
the_merino_mermaid : I prefer blue ;) Id love to test for you again. πŸ’™
marretjeroos : Love, love this pattern! My pink feelings are hurt though πŸ˜‰!πŸŒΉπŸ’•

meljmat72 : Of, not if
spincushions : Went to Mount Waverley High School @meljmat72 although its called something else these days lol
meljmat72 : Really?! I grew up in Knox, and moved back there 4 years ago, but just prior to that lived in Chadstone, so I spent a lot of time around Mt Wav, Ashwood etc. Small world! @spincushions
spincushions : Sure is @meljmat72 😊 good part of the world.
meljmat72 : πŸ˜‰ And I just made your little star fish - so cute! I'll post a pic a bit later.
bernashome : Please look my star crochet to my galleriaπŸ’™
spincushions : Cool @meljmat72 😊

Time to forget all the other stuff and start something new. Can you believe I have no crochet projects on the go? Well, not exactly none, but no substantial ones. πŸ˜‰ #crochet #crochetaddict #designing #ihaveaplan #hopeitworks

queen_babs : You do strike me as being very organised Shelley. Is that true? I'm very 'free flowing' (aka messy)! πŸ˜‚ I get bored easily and like to change things up, jumping from one thing to another. One colour to another. It keeps me happy. I love that we are all different as it makes life interesting πŸ˜„
spincushions : I'm really not @queen_babs I know my IG feed seems to show this but you only see my crafty stuff. I made a conscious decision a while back to do not show my family and other stuff. The house is a mess and nothing but craft is ever done lol. Well that's how I feel anyway.
queen_babs : @spincushions Shelley I am creative and have other things to do like be with my family, run a home and have a life. I choose creativity and experiences over a tidiness. It's a good choice for me and maybe you too. My mum used to say "No one died from an unmade bed." Time is a commodity best spent on things that make us happy and fulfilled. Chores deserve just enough time and effort to get them done to a point that you can live with. Yes, I have a mound of chores to do, but we have clean clothes, food, some & order. That's good enough! πŸ‘πŸ˜˜β€οΈ
spincushions : Oh I'm happy how everything is @queen_babs if I wanted a show home, I'd have one πŸ˜‰
saref2901 : I know just what you guys mean. I was getting really stressed about the fact that all I ever wanted to do was craft and I hated the cleaning. Luckily we decided we could afford to get a cleaner and it's made such a difference. I can get on with my projects and not feel guilty all the time that I should be doing chores!
spincushions : Guilt and stress are not good @saref2901 I bet that made a huge difference 😊 lucky you!
poppyandbliss : This looks interesting ... And colourful. I likey 😍
spincushions : You know what colour I went for first though don't you @poppyandbliss πŸ˜†

Well hello all you new folks! Suddenly seems to be a heck of a lot more of you. I'm Shelley. I'm a crafty sort who loves to crochet, embroider, knit and generally do crafty things instead of housework. πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much for dropping by. I try hard to respond to everyone's comments but sometimes I get so many notifications, they drop off and I miss them - especially on older pics so I apologise now if you've asked me something and it seems like I'm ignoring you. Anyway, Hello! Feel free to introduce yourself here 😊 #crochet #crochetaddict (btw this sqaure is called Florence fron me ebook you're going to get sick of me banging on about)
