Female Orc Hunter Transmorg Sets

Having trouble finding something for your female orc hunter to wear? Here are some outfits I have put together. They are what I call modest and I think they have understated style! Perfect for a fashionable female orc!
trailseeker chest, gloves, belt, shoes, kilt of Pandaren promises, netherstorm shoulderguards
Oversized ogre hauberk, frozen forest kilt, nexus strider mantle, rift stalker guantlets, wild plains belt
Gatekeeper's embrace, netherstorm shoulerguards, gloves of the savage hunt, sovereigns belt
Here is the Bloodlust set, which got the most comments, but a bit too attention seeking for me!

White Female Hunter Transmorg for WoW

I was searching for a white outfit to transmorg onto my alliance female NE hunter, and had trouble finding it. I finally found out that the Impenetrable set is white, but its quite revealing! I was unhappy with her butt cheeks hanging out, so I found another pair of pants that are white, the bonelink pants. I think it looks good!
the Impenetrable set's legguards are a bit revealing ....

The impenetrable set with bonelink legguards looks better!

Little Lavender Sachet, FREE Pattern

I woke early this morning and decided I needed to try making a lavender sachet to include in a woolen bunny rug package. I used the vintage inspired square as an idea, I didn't follow it exactly, just did an eight petal flower then turned it into a square. Then I made another square but this time didn't fasten off, but sc around the edge on three sides of the two squares forming a bag. Then I went around the top in dc, then scalloped the top edge. Finally, I made a chain to weave in between the dc of the second last row to form a drawstring. Yay! A lavender sachet!
the lavender sachet will be filled will lavender to help protect woollen rugs from pests

Pretty Angel Baby Blankets

I've made some more angel blankets, just following various ideas, not really following any specific patterns. I did a border on one but not exactly happy with it. I think they look better with simple borders. Maybe I will remember that for next time ...
three pretty angel baby blankets ready to be sent off
this one used a 3mm hook and Patons Big Baby 3 ply rainbow and a simple pattern
this one has a fancy border, which might not be as nice as a simple one, this was 3.5mm hook and 4ply yarn

Apricot Angora Shawl

I started making this shawl about 6 to 12 months ago and finally wove in the ends yesterday. Its simply beautiful. I used a 4mm hook and some apricot angora that has a slight soft fuzz to it. I don't know if anyone will ever wear this, I am not a shawl wearing girl myself, but I just made it for fun. Its nice to make beautiful things. I followed a pattern I found on Ravelry.

Pretty Shells Angel Blanket

I just spent the day making this angel baby blanket, I was inspired by a pattern I saw on Ravelry. I didn't follow the pattern but I did use the photo for the idea. This took me about 4 hours to make. I used a 3mm hook and 4ply acrylic yarn, and it turned out to be slightly larger than an A4 piece of paper.

Two Angel Blankets

Happy New Year! I'm so sorry for not posting in nearly 6 months, but I have had a break from my crochet projects while I play World of Warcraft! My guild has turned into a raiding guild, so there is lots to do! But yesterday when checking Facebook I stumbled across a charity that wants angel baby blankets so I thought I'd make a couple and see how they turned out. I made a blue one and a pink with white one.
here are two angel baby blankets I made up quickly, it was fun
the pattern for this Easy Baby Blanket is on ravelry, I used 8ply yarn and a 4mm hook
Myrtle from my craft group taught me this little love hearts blanket pattern, one day I might write it down, I used 4ply yarn and a 3mm hook.

Happy Sunshine with Smiles Mandala

I made this mandala the other day, and have named it "Happy Sunshine with Smiles". It is a mandala for Marinke, aka Wink. I don't think I'll be able to manage to post it off to America, but I thought I could add the image to the interwebs to contribute in some way. Happy thoughts of Peace to everyone. This is one of Marinke's free patterns on her blog, I chose it because I didn't know how to do the spokes and wondered how to do it. I learnt how to do it, found it to be very difficult, but I persisted and it worked out in the end.
I made this in memory of Wink

Growing Zucchini

Well our zucchinis have been looking a bit sad lately, I wonder if its because I haven't been watering them enough? We've been fertilising them fortnightly with a seaweed solution, so perhaps that is enough? When I went out there this morning I discovered a beautiful zucchini flower in full bloom, and two baby zucchinis on another plant so maybe they aren't doing too badly? I've got the sprinkler on them at the moment so they can get a good soaking!

2 ripe bananas muffins

I did an internet search for a recipe that would use 2 ripe bananas as that's what I had and I found this recipe for banana cinnamon muffins. Its an American site so I had to translate the oven temperature to 190 degrees, and I used plain flour and bi-carb of soda. And I didn't do the butter and sugar topping, they are fine just as they are. They turned out deliciously! Nom nom nom!
