Knitted baby jacket finished and I made a fabric purse.

Hello everyone, How are you all?

Thank you for your comments and Happy New Year messages I hope you all had lovely family holidays and are ready for 2018.

I finished a little knitted baby jacket for my new Grand Son when he arrives,


I used DK yarn picked up from my local Hobby Craft store it's 0-3 months size, the pattern is an old one from the Women's Weekly magazine here in the UK. It was one of my mums so I cannot even tell you which issue it was as it is years old,  and the baby hat is one of my own patterns.

I finished a simple bobble hat for my Grand daughter the yarn is Aran weight I made it to fit a 7 year old and there was enough left to crochet a scarf with a cream strip added in the middle, then to finish I attached 4 pom poms.











While I have been knitting for the new baby I didn't want to leave Suzie out she was so pleased and has been wearing it for school.





I also made a cute little coin purse with a zip using scraps of fabric I had.



now OK it is small but in stead of using it for money it is an ideal size for scissors, needles and cotton. Not only that this was the first time I have attempted to insert a zip, I hate projects with zips If I can avoid them I will but I thought it was about time I had ago and this is the finished one.



With a little more practise I think I will be OK to make another one with a zip and maybe a little larger.

That's all for now, till next time.
Happy knitting/stitching

Hello and Happy New Year

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year to you all and another year begins. I can see blog posts for the new year have already been popping up it seems all of us want to start and share new ideas including me.


I have knitting projects finished and some WIP (don't we all) plus cross stitch, sewing, oh and embroidery let's see if I will finish all that I have planned.



I am very lucky to have a new craft room Mr C painted and decorated it for me this had been my sons room but now he has moved into his own flat and the space was going to waste so there we go, I just need to hang some of my finished work on the walls but everything else is good to go.







Bruno is not fussed with all the changes as long as his bed is not moved and he is free to snooze he is one happy dog.





So till the next post where I will show you what I have been making enjoy your week.
