a faithful friend,confirmed eccentric and willing tester of rugs.
A grand old lady who will be very much missed.
21st June 1999-7th February 2014.
|An Urban Rustic original print!|
|my pile of prints starting to amass.|
|One of my blocks made from craft foam,the design pressed on with one of those embossing tool and inked up|
with inktense blocks.
|Does anyone else work with all this clutter going on?|
|At the risk of being boring here are more prints...just humour me please!|
|The one and only card so far produced from all of that effort.|
|Veggie version of a Chicken and Leek Pie...in other words a Quorn and Leek Pie|
|Front cover of 3rd edition possibly 1957.|
Pearl trimmed scoop neck jumper.
I just love this outfit.
|"The Seven Eighths Cardigan"|
I love this cardigan.Why the name I don't know but just think of all the discarded sweet wrappers you can get in pockets that roomy.
|Ski sweater, plus hood, plus mitts|
|I love this too...but square necklines look awful on me....grrr.|
|Edition number five was proud to boast the inclusion of several designs intended purely for machine knitting.|
|The rose and white fair isle cardigan,bottom left,is what I really want.|
Would I match up to the skill levels expected by "The Editress"..???
|A nice picture....but I find the young ladies feet disturbingly odd.Or is it just me?|
lovely elegant dress.
|One of my hand painted cards.This is from a tutorial by a wonderful lady called the Frugal Crafter...|
I am a devoted acolyte....look her up!
|Another Frugal crafter tutorial.I liked my snowmen but some definitely looked a bit more evil than others!|
|You guessed it...this is all down to the Frugal Crafter!|
|Tissue paper parcel toppers.Easy to make and cheap too but looked really nice.Tutorial here.|
|A lace stole I crocheted for my friend in Debbie Bliss Rialto lace.The colour was supposed to be Citrus but looked more like mushy pea....as she is a Northern lass it seemed to work!|
|Jumper knitted in King Cole Aran for my son.I think he likes it but have not seen it in action much to verify.|
|First big aran project I have knitted for some time and realised that I had forgotten how much I like knitting cables.|
So easy but look quite impressive.
|Jumper for my daughter in a chunky wool by James C. Brett, which was lovely to use,but the pattern by Wendy.|
|Although I have not taken a photo to prove the point I think with these two jumpers I actually cracked how to sew them up neatly .|
|Yorkshire Puddings!!!! Perhaps not the usual festive fare but who cares...I was cooking so we had them.My favourite with Sherry gravy..|
|I was a good girl and ate all of my dinner up.|
|It was all too much for someone.|
|75 cents well spent back in 1970 if you ask me|
|functional rather than slinky|
|don't mention the Rump Droop|
|lots of flexibility and room for movement!|
|Martha and Vivien|
|Teggy testing fabric plushness|
|The gimlet eyed pooch|
|another lovely bow!!|
|Vivien's innards complete with magnetic clasp|
|some of my woolly fabrics just waiting for me to get inspired|
