How are we all this cool evening? Hope you had a nice and safe weekend.
I was quite busy crafting over the weekend a bit of crochet, knitting, and cross stitching😀
Here are the first of the cuties I made
crochet robins and a little gnome.
I made these to go on my Christmas tree and no I haven't put mine up yet but I don't blame anyone who has, anything to add a little sparkle in our lives at the moment.
These patterns are from CROCHET YOUR CHRISTMAS BAUBLES booklet by David and Charles D&C
Here is a photo below.
plenty more items to make it is a lovely book with clear easy instructions.
I have been knitting too but this isn't a finish, I am making a Tabard for myself very easy rib stitch a great one to do in front of the TV
I am using Aran weight yarn a combination of Womens Institute yarn for the main colour in a denim blue and a contrast colour by SIRDAR JEWELSPUN aran. Both have the same tension using 5mm needles.
The pattern is by KING COLE not using the same yarn as in the pattern but the tension has worked out fine for the yarns I used.
I told you I had been busy 😀
I still found time to make a few cross stitch badges though and I will be making some more with Christmas motifs.
They are form old patterns World of Cross Stitching magazine I am just in the middle of a Rudolf and I want to stitch a Christmas pud too. Great fun I plan to finish the festive ones for my Granddaughter to wear to school, I think I will add a red bead for Rudolf's nose and use silver thread, that sounds like a plan.
Well that is all for the moment, thank you for your comments and taking the time to read my blog.
