Cross stitch Owl Bell Pull update and I finished two cushions.

Hello everyone,
Welcome to April, how are you all?

The sun is shining here this afternoon it is a lovely day, I will be going out with Bruno in a bit for a nice walk but first I will do a quick post update.

I must show what arrived in the post this morning,


something I ordered from my friend Lynn B look how lovely it has been wrapped, I love the card and owl tag.


Look what was inside, how nice and Lynn made me a sweet Owl fob. Thank you so much Lynn i have somewhere safe to keep my sewing project and needles, it will be ideal to take away with me in the caravan too.

Now for an update on the cross stitch Owl Bell Pull


this picture was taken a few days ago and I have stitched more last night so I will post again soon and show you how it looks.


In a previous post I told you about a cushion I was going to knit for my Grand daughter well that is now finished.


Suzie loves it and has promised me that the cats will not go to sleep on it.

I also crocheted a cushion for myself with left over yarn I had.



This is one side,

and here is the back either way it dose not matter, I made this to go on the sofa and I think I have managed to match the colours well with the two fabric cushions that I have on each side.

Well that's all for now I am off to enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy stitching or knitting.

bye for now

Finished crochet cowl, knitted chicks for charity and new yarn in my stash.

Hi everyone, Hope you are all well?

We are having lovely mild weather on and off here in my part of the UK, lot's of rain mixed with sunshine.

I have been busy crocheting a lovely warm cowl for my friend at work,


the pattern was from Inside Crochet magazine Dunes Cowl. I did not use the recommended yarn as on the pattern my friend already purchased the yarn.


I have not crossed stitched much of my owl pattern lately since I seem to have knitting projects piling up so there is not much progress to show you at the moment. I intend to save a few hours to stitch at some point.



At my local knitting group we are in the middle of knitting or crocheting small chicks, they are just the right size to fit a cream egg inside.




I have knitted about 14 so far and other members have made similar amounts, all these will be going off to St Lukes Cheshire Hospice where they sell them at there charity stalls to raise funds.

Within our group we take some of our sub money to put towards funds every week and so far we have raised £700 pounds. It is so much fun when you have others to share with what you are making.



Also I have some lovely yummy new yarn to show for new projects.



This jester DK yarn will be for  a cushion for my Grand daughter.



One 100g skein of hand dyed yarn 4ply weight this will be for a pair of socks.
You can find more of similar yarn at Betsy Makes etsy shop


So I think I will be pretty busy for the coming weeks that is something to look forward too, I think I had better knit the cushion first though.

Till next time 
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and find a little time to make something.


bye for now
