Crochet baby blanket finished.

Hello everyone,

I hope all of you are well and enjoying your weekend.
I have a few moments to update my blog before making tea. I have been quite busy with family and we have been helping my son to move into his new flat so that leaves a quite house with just Mr C Bruno and me.
However I am going to be a Nana again as my daughter is expecting a baby due next March and you can imagine my Grand daughter is so excited, so that means lot's of baby projects to plan and here is my first finish this baby blanket.

The image is a little muted as I took it in the evening, this is the first CTC pattern I have crocheted my daughter has already seen this and loves it.

 I also started a baby hooded jacket  which is being knitted using James C Brett wool and I plan to crochet another blanket too.

You may have noticed my blog posts have been fewer I find it hard to fit in around work and family as must be the same for most of us, when I am off work it is easier to post but in the mean time you can always find me adding new pictures of my projects and anything else I am doing on ,

Back from our hoildays.

Hello everyone,

How are you all? I hope you all had nice summer breaks where ever you might be.

I just want to show you a few pictures.

This is a view of the caravan site where we stayed which was Banwell, North Somerset, Weston-super-Mare UK

Lot's of space on the site dog friendly and Bruno made a friend Meg the sheep dog.
The site is set on a working farm and the family that run the campsite were very welcoming- here

Cheddar was quite near by

By the way that is not me rock climbing.

Mr C walking Bruno

Next went to Wells to see the Cathedral

Wells was a lovely place to visit with small shops and cobbled roads, with an open market too.

I found a knitting and craft shop in Wells hidden away and yes I bought some yarn how could I not, I forgot to take some pictures of the shop though sorry about that.

We really enjoyed Somerset we have not been before and thought it was time for a change, we will be planning another visit there next year.

That's all for now
Happy knitting or stitching.

Knitted tea cosy finished and other stitching progress.

Hello everyone,

How are we all I have not posted for a few weeks I know, I have broke up from work for the holidays at the moment with me working at a school so Mr C and I are away in our caravan on and off.

You can find me on Revelry sometimes and I have posted the odd picture on Instagram  showing pictures of any of my projects I have been working on.

I finished the knitted tea cosy I mentioned last,

pattern is by Lynn Rowe from the Woolnest

I used one of Lynn's other patterns to crochet this bunting for my sisters birthday.

Sue has promised to hang this in her summer house or along the top of her dresser, I hope she remembers to send me a picture.

I have to show you this lovely gift from my blog friend Lynn B at Happiness Is Cross Stitching
it came through the post this morning what a lovely surprise.

A very useful large cross stitch project bag with a see through front so you can easily see which project you have inside, it is beautifully made and with my favourite owl image what a super gift for a st itchy friend.
Oh and check out the owl stitch marker to all made by Lynn B

Here is how it looks with my hoop fabric, threads and notions pouch tucked safely inside.
You can find products similar to this one and many more items in Lynn's shop over at
Stitching Fairy Crafts

Before I go here is an update on the Bee embroidery I have been stitching

the pattern is from Homemade embroidery magazine special, not much more to do.

Well that is all for now, we will be away for 2 weeks so till next time.

happy stitching

Julie xx
