Hexi Fever

These are the last hexis I received from both the hexi flower swap and the hexi block swap before they moved to the new site.  Still a little sad that they didnt keep them going on the original forum!

Valentine Swap

Thought I should catch up on some swaps I have sent out.  This is my heart wall hanging I sent for my Valentine Friendship Swap on the Craft Magazine Forum.

Oh Where Oh Where Did my Internet Go!

Well its been alot of fun.  First the printer crashed and its only 6 months old, then the internet connection died and it took them 3 weeks to fix that and finally the computer crashed.  So for now im back online but never say never!

Knit a Blanket in a Day

This is a great quick project.  Its the noodle wool and only 20 stitches per row.   Knitting up a ball takes around 30min so you can easily get one done in a day.   Really had to knit my son something as he cant use a beaded scarf?  Well I should say he dosent want one.

Tuesday Treasure

Well I just so happened to be driving past Picklemouse Corner and there was a parking spot so I HAD to stop. I found a scrap bag that had my name on it so its my Tuesday Treasure. Im hoping its going to revive me insperation that has gone astray. I have an idea so keep an eye out to see what its going to become?

Well today I have two treasures. Sorry about the poor pic quality. My sweet best friend Ellie can often be found sitting on my chair, my bed or just getting right in the middle of things. The other day whilst knitting my dishcloths she decided she wanted to be RIGHT NEXT TO ME. What a wonderful treasure is a pet who loves to be around you.  I just dont think she understands shes 25kg and trying to sit on the arm of my chair?

Margarets Jug Cover

Those who know me are aware that my failing is crochet.  So I thought I would give it a go.  I had a piece of lace from Nottingham Castile "the Castle of Nottingham was originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068 and this great fortress became the residence of the Norman and Plantagenet Kings.  The present Castle with its Italianate style bears no resemblance to the original castle indeed, this has been destroyed and rebuilt several times through the centuries"  I picked it up in a secondhand store very cheap.  So at Christmas when I was given a nice pack of glass beads I thought of making a jug cover so finally its done and im still not sure how to crochet but I had a go.  Thanks to Margaret Harris for the lovley beads.
