Snug seat

A lovely lady, Terri, on my craft forum kindly sent me the pattern for a Snug seat, I have made two for the twins. I did not have a baby to try it with so I just used a pillow. If anyone would like one of these just contact me via this blog, and I will give you Terri's email address, she makes these seat on order.


Just lately I have been knitting, I have made a few pairs of slippers, and a scarf, easy, so I decided I would attempt a pair of socks. So I found myself a pattern for a lovely simple pair of socks. My printer is totally out of ink so I had wrote it out, went for the knitting needles and this is what happen. There was such a mess of needles that I did not know where to start, so I found a lovely pattern for a knitting needle case, only took a couple of hours from deciding to make it to finishing it.

I have been asked for the site where I got the needle case instructions, click here, and scroll down to September 7, 2007 and the Knitting Needle Case Tutorial. I actually made mine bigger, I used the full length of a fat quarter.

Mothers Day,

I have been working on a quilt for quite a while for my mum for mothers day, I made it with one day to spare. the Top Photo is what my lovely daughter made for me, it has a bag in it that you put in the microwave to heat or in the fridge to cool.
The bottom photo is the quilt my mum got, it has not got a name but it is rainbow coloured so maybe "Fractured Rainbow"

Seeing Double once again,

I have finally finished the quilts for the twins, took forever to do two. They are the same, but not identical.

Wonder who thought of this.

OK I am going to try again, I was making my Row by Row that Cheryl and I are doing and came across this. A new way (for me anyway) of doing flying geese.
