Cutie booties

This is the third time I have made this booties pattern - Its proving very popular! I'm loving this pink ribbon.

On a completely different topic - Why is my scanner so temperamental!!  All I want to do is get a drawing into my computer!  Is that too much to ask???

One more tree?

I think the postcard image is finished.  I feel like keeping it simple for a change!  Although I'm wondering if the two trees in the top right would look better as a three...

A Friday suprise

So I saw this fantastic new Cath Kidston sewing box in John Lewis on Friday and just had to take a photo on my phone to send to my husband, as I knew he would appreciate the loveliness and would probably respond with the remark that it looked 'right up my street'.

What I didn't expect was to turn around from the oven on Friday night to see him holding said sewing box in one hand and a cute pink pin box in the other that he had been out and bought for me after work as a suprise.  

I then spent the rest of the evening arranging all my ribbons, buttons and reels of thread in the beautiful new box and stroking the strokable flowers on the lid.  It was a Friday night that was right up my street!

Winter games

Still working on my new promotional postcard.  I would like a scarf like that.

But why is drawing so messy?  I've got to tidy this all up now.  And you should see the floor.

Round and round...

I had been meaning to learn crochet and finally bought some hooks at the weekend so I decided to have a little practice.  Well, what fun!  It is almost as satisfying as knitting!  I would love to make one of those brilliant granny blankets that use mismatched yarn scraps.  Think I will need a bit more practice first though!

Stripy Mr Cat!  I have finished embroidering the face of my first knitted toy.  I like him.  He feels nice and wooly. 

Also, my sewing machine arrived today hooray!  I already have a couple of projects in mind.  Just need to get my hands on some nice fabric...
