My New Scarf

I can hardly believe that this is only the fourth time I have blogged this month, what a bad blogger I am.

Well I'm all set for the winter with my new scarf which I made from some left over wool. I just knitted until I ran out of wool, I would have liked it to be a little longer but its fine.. I looked after Grace on Thursday and thought I would teach her to knit, one thing you do need when teaching kids to knit is lots of patience. It's seems so easy when you have been knitting a lifetime but not so easy when first learning.But we will get there I'm sure. I'm determined not to give up. My daughter never did learn. But I think it is so rewarding to make something even so simple as a scarf.

Stampin Up! Christmas in July

We had a super day yesterday at Putnoe Heights with the lovely Carol as host. we managed to get loads done, and lots of chat with all the lovely ladies there.
Advent Calendar a bit fiddly with all those little boxes but a lovely idea, I must admit that this is the class sample as I didn't finish mine.

Some of the lovely cards we made.

And a box to keep them all in.

And a gorgeous wreath. the original one was so much neater than mine, but then I think it all depended how tight your curling was.
I do love Stampin Up products the inks are brilliant and the card and paper is such great quality.

Ruby wedding

It is my cousin Len and his wife Viv's ruby wedding anniversary at the end of the month and they are having a little party to celebrate. don't you just love these sort of get together's, even managed to get Brian to cancel his game of golf on the day. They didn't want presents so I thought I would make them a mirror as a little keepsake.
It's very Kath inspired don't you think. With a few Timme goodies too. it was very difficult trying to photograph a mirror with getting me in the shot.

Sunkissed table runner and table mat

I'm coming to the end of My sunkissed fabric and made this table runner and mat to use up the last few bits. although I love this fabric so much I might have to buy more.

I even appliqued a flower on my mat which is also a first for me.

At last we have a new Hobbycraft store in Aylesbury, hurrah and I,ve already been this morning and spent some money. We have waited so very long for a decent hobby craft shop, and now there is one on my doorstop, well only a short bus ride away anyway, hope it dosen't hurt hubby's wallet too much.
