Quick Update

As it was such a lovely morning, and unusually we had no children, we decided to take a walk.

We went to Branscombe and started at The Masons Arms, where we had the most scrumptious roast beef.  I would thoroughly recommend going there if you're ever in East Devon.  I wish I'd taken a photo of the meal!

We walked along the beach and gazed longingly at the little beach houses in the cliff.

Then I came home and settled on the ever deepening dent in the corner of the couch to carry on with some of my current projects. 

There are some leg warmers for my friend's daughter who has just moved to Edinburgh to study to be A Vet: yes, I am using the Crofters DK again!

And the new Lacy Blanket is coming on, but requires a bit more concentration!

Five motifs done, only 15 to go!

Well, that's all I have time for now.  I'll try and pop back soon as I have some plans for a giveaway hopefully to brighten these short days!

50p Well Spent

How is it possible that it is WEDNESDAY?  It shouldn't even be Wednesday Last Week, let alone the Nineteenth of Flipping January.

I have been a Little Bit Productive though.  Just a bit.

I've learnt to play 'We All Stand Together' (with both hands!) on the piano.  Woo hoo!

Yes, I know, doesn't exactly get the dinner on the table though, does it?  As far as time wasting goes, the piano is nearly as bad as spider solitaire!

I have got the sewing machine out, gasp.  Look what I made!

I bought a couple of pieces of material (looked like old curtains with the lining and header tape ripped off) from a charity shop for 50p and used one of the pieces to make this bag.  I used some green cotton from my stash to line it and still have some of the flowery left over!

Scary's got her eye on it but it's All Mine.

I am hoping that 2011 is going to be more productive, in a crafty way!

I also managed to find this tin for 50p.

You can't turn down something that that, can you?  No matter how many humphs you know you're going to get when they all come home.

Wrist Warmers #2

Finished Scary's wrist warmers at last (well, a few days ago actually but have been waiting for them to be modelled). 

I really like the Crofters DK wool and it knits up so quickly, I think I might have another go!

See you soon.

What The Runner Saw

Isn't it funny what you see in the middle of nowhere sometimes?

Wrist Warmers

Just a quick photo of the wrist warmers I made for Starfish.  They weren't quite finished for Christmas but she seems to like them.

Now Scary wants some as well!

Happy New Year!

Wishing all my Bloggy Friends a very Happy and Creative New Year!

Lots of love
