Been a while since I did an update on my blog but if you wonder what I am up to you can always see posts on my Instagram page too.
As crafting goes it has been a little up and down for me lately I think the only things I seem to focus on are needle felting and my knitting/crochet. There are a couple of cross stitch WIP s and an embroidery flower which has been weeks since I started it, the embroidery flower I had been stitching is one of my own projects its nearly finished but like I say just haven't wanted to pick it up.
But any way what I can show is the finished Knitted fancy hen
pattern is by Ella Austin BomBella designs, you can find her patterns on Ravelry.
This poncho above I was knitting with Womens Institute yarn in Aran weight well I finished it but I will not be wearing it 😐
Reason being it looks horrid on me, nothing wrong with the pattern that works fine. Don't you just hate it when the model in the photo looks great and you think yeah that will look good on me to no way Hmmm!
But I am never put off I have no problem undoing and starting again with something else, yes you heard me. It's fine though I would rather do that than shove it at the back of my draw and not wear it, so I am on the hunt for something else to make with this yarn which I love it is so soft and snuggly to work with. I will keep you updated on this one.
Now for a little bit of needle felting here is a cute toad stool house
this hobby is still very much a learning process but enjoyable it is a little addictive when I think about the first kit I bought which was from Hobby craft here in the UK, because I had some vouchers given to me as a gift I made a mouse which is on a previous post. It has certainly been something new to try while on this lockdown but I don't think I will be giving up my knitting or stitching they will always be my first love.
The pattern or kit can be purchased at Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts
I will post again as I have a crochet blanket to show you and some stitching to.
Everybody take care and stay safe.
bye for now Julie x
