Sushi Satisfaction

I am having the best time making this crocheted sushi. I was on a promise to my daughter Ruby to make her some as I keep snatching it of her to sell at Kraftbomb. I have extended the range to include that inside out Californian Roll and a wizard Panko Crumbed Prawn Ngiri. I haven't put a magnet in these ones and thought maybe listing them as sets of playfood?

Sunday Stitchin'

A group of toggle and Kraftbomb folk had a great time stitching away at the Auckland Art Gallery in the Yinka Shonibare MBE show.
JB Bones completed this work above.
Esther and Kirsten (Cheek Pinchy) helped the public make badges from a huge pile of mad fabric.
City's (NZ Cupcake Queen) lovely husband Chris and Karen's (Luxford St) gorgeous boy Fred made their first forays into the splendid world of stitch.
