Just a few bits to show and tell

I am not sure what is going on at the moment, but I can't seem to settle into my crafts so I am just flitting from one thing to another.

I bought some yarn at the 'Knit and Stitch' show back in October,  so I thought I would have a go at making one of  these .  I have to say the yarn is so expensive I choose a different yarn but am happy with the result.  I chose to make Donna ( I know my daughter would love him/her) and for the most part it was very easy,  then I got to the Antlers....Phew! I don't mind working on small bits, but to go around in a circle on only 3 stitches was a bit much. Still it all turned out in the end.

Too cute for words !
I had a birthday at the beginning of the month, and a friend bought me a cute kit from manfieldcrafts  This shop is not too far from where I live but to my shame I have to say I have never been to visit, so the gift was a big surprise.  I sat one evening and my knitting grew very quickly 

The photo was taken at night, so not good colour

I  soon had made the first woolly jumper for my ewe,

Watching the sun set

Watching the sun rise

and now for the lamb

So smart in their woolly jumpers 

and after about a year I have finally finished my Tilda sewing angel.......well, she is not quite finished because I forgot she needed her wings,  Oh well, that's a job for another day

Waiting for her wings 

I wonder what next week will bring.....maybe a bit more sewing....


  1. Love your sheep, so sweet and the Tllda angel is lovely.

  2. Hahaha....I sure enjoyed all these photos! what diverse crafts. You are one talented woman that's for sure and I think it's great you can flit from one to another...keeps it fresh!:)
    Belated Happy BDay!;) xoxo

  3. It's the time of year Jo, it seems no one can settle. I have one of those sheep kits, I will put that on my MUST DO NEXT list! Oh and a doll,

    Love the Reindeer, are you going to do the whole crew?
