Friday Friends - Local Artists - DEL-icious Designz

Hello dear readers, and a big Happy Friday to you all! I have heard a whisper that there is more winter sunshine on the way this weekend - Maddabling is hoping to get out and make the most of it exploring on a coast walk somewhere. Hopefully, I will also get some time to do some more baking, testing a recipe to share with you all. This week I am sharing with you some new things from a dear friend who I have had the pleasure to feature before - meet Del from DEL-icious Designz! 
Del is an absolute crochet wiz and is my guest blogger this week, in fact it is time for me to hand over the blogging reigns to her right now! I do hope you 
enjoy her story xo
The Delightful Tale of DEL-icious Designz 
Way back in May 2010 I was Samara's second Friday Friend Feature http://maddabling.blogspot.com.au/2010/05/friday-friends-part-2.html
Back then I was dabbling in resin jewellery and Spoon Pendants.  This was a lot of fun but due to reasons out of my control, resin and I had to part ways.
Now I have picked up on my passion for crochet and am loving it. 
Want a funky character hat??  Then I am your girl.  
I have had all sorts of requests and always rise to the challenge.  Tiger, Sheep, Unicorn, Bear, Monkey, Owl, Elmo, Panda, Cookie Monster and the list goes on. 
You can check them all out on my Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/DELiciousDesignz

But....it's not just hats I make.  
I also create Ponchos
and Tea cosies
and Slippers
and Barefoot Sandals
