Hi guys,

I have found the most wonderful tutorial on You Tube with the Crochet Geek. I am follower of her blog and I found this wonderful pattern and video for a pouch. I used magi-knit baby DK and this is what I made………


This is with the model Twinkle my leopard. I think I am going to have to make more for all of Jennifer’s bears……..I think we should keep this our little secret SSSHHHHHHHHHH!


Hope you like.

Father’s Day card


Hi guys,

I made this card for my soon to be father in law.


I had to used the Magnolia Edwin as Robin Hood. I used my Promarkers to colour him in.


Card is from the crop box that is still over flowing. I really think there is some breeding going on in there. LOL


I used my distress inks for the stamped images. The writing is from Word and is called Ale and wrenches…………….I think this fits with the theme I have going. Duncan delivered this card this afternoon and was told it was brill. Buttons from the ever growing collection.

Hope you like.

I would like to enter this card in to the Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Wool glorious Wool!!

Hi guys,

The other half took me to the local Wool shop which is about 3 corners away from the house……very dangerous. Last year I took knitting lessons with them so I am well known and when I pick wools they always find me something better and at a better price. When I made the 3d butterflies in the white and purple colours I wanted more colours to do more. I still had some of the voucher left from my Birthday……..this worked and I came out with loads of wool.


These are Sirdar Double Knit Summer Colours and Calico double knit. LOVE LOVE THEM!!!!


The one on the left is Magi-Knit Baby DK and the other 3 are Dollymix DK. I got these because I have seen an ace You Tube video for cupcakes and I want to give these a go. I also got the below for my new interest of tatting.


Crochet threads.

So what have I done so far with these beautiful wools besides drooling and stroking them…….


More 3d Butterflies. The bottom is for Duncan before he moans I never make him anything. The others are for my mates at work. I have had a week off but not gone anywhere so I have made them something instead of the sweets.


Well I hope you like.

Butterfly card

Hi guys,
This is what I did with the 3d butterfly I made.
The backing paper is from the stash that I have for ages. I used the Fergus with Cupcake from Wild Rose Studio. He is soooooo cute. I used my promarkers to colour. Used the circle nesties. I was brave and used my sewing machine to stitch around the edges. The sentiment at the bottom is from Pumpkin the Cheerleader collection from Daisy and Dandelion.
I would like to enter this into the Flutterby Wednesday challenge and Allsorts Challenge.

Crochet Butterfly

Hi guys,

Long time no hear…………I have been crafting just not posting.

I was browsing on You Tube and I found a video for making a 3d crocheted butterfly by Shopetsy……so I had to give it a go and here is my first one……



I need to practise on the antennas but I am impressed with my first go.
