I totally forgot where I was up to…..

I can’t remember what bits of knitting I’ve posted on here and in all honesty I’m not in the mood to go looking :-P I will just post the photos I have so I’m sorry if you have seen them before haha!!

Sherbert booties!

I made the booties above for a friend of mine to give to her Niece as a present!! the one on the right is before you sew it up not a giant bootie :-P I used the self striping wool which is why the two booties are slightly different colours!! I really like knitting booties…..no idea why!!

John Impman :-P

This little guy took me a while to do! He was a present for my friends mum’s birthday and I am soooo pleased with how he has turned out! This is the first proper toy I have managed to finish!! It’s from an Alan Dart pattern and was very easy to follow!! I love Alan dart, he does the best toy patterns!! I’ve already downloaded a couple more! They cost about £2.50 depending how big they are! He sometimes puts free ones up too!!

Twinkie Chan Notebook

On a completely different note, here is the notebook I ordered from Twinkie Chan :-D I always try to buy a little something when she updates her Etsy shop!!

I don’t have much news! I’m working on some things I can’t show you just yet but I can’t wait until I can :-p Just trying to get through the next few weeks….then I’m off on holiday OH YES!!

Hope you are all doing well!!

 

Oh hello there, nice to see you again :-)

Sooooooooooooooooooooo it’s been a million years since I blogged on here!! I feel that I need to apologise!! The end of July is a hard time for me as it is the Anniversary of my Dad passing away.  I’ve also had ALOT on with work……..ALOT!!! But I have actually managed a little crafting so the next Blog I do will be a nice little catch up with photos and everything!!

Anyway that is all for today, please stick with me and I will see you all soon :-)

Apple and Cinnemon muffins YUM

This is a very quick post today!! It is just to show you my efforts at baking recently!! It’s quite hard for me to bake as I don’t like cakes so I just have to cross my fingers and hope people like them haha!! I did make donut cakes but they were a disaster! They looked like mutants and the filling sank to the bottom! I decided to try my hand at a muffin! I went for Apple and Cinnamon even though I can not stand the smell of cinnamon :-P

They aren’t the most muffiny looking muffins but I was told they were nice haha!! I haven’t decided what to do next though…..something fruity maybe!!

Anyway that’s it for now, I hope you are all looking forward to the next week :-)

A very well dressed bear!

I keep promising to Blog more often and then life keeps getting in the way :-P Thank you to all of you who have stuck around, I really do appreciate it!!

This is another fairly short post to update you on the progress of the bear jackets/cardies I’ve been working on! I’m not too sure if they are boy or girl teddys so I don’t want to commit to a cardie or a jacket :-P So basically both jackets/cardies are finished and just need to be sewn together! This is the part I hate more than anything so I always put it off until I can’t put it off any longer!! But they will definitely be posted by the end of this week YAY.

This isn’t the teddy that the jacket will end up on, he is my very own teddy bear :-P As you can see it isn’t stitched together but you get the general idea!! I think it’s quite cute!!

Here is the back view! The pattern looked like it was going to be a right pain but it turned out to be quite easy so I was very pleased about that! The pattern can be adapted to make bigger sizes and is actually a pattern for new-born babies!!  The second cardigan is green with a white trim! It was supposed to be all in green but I ran out just as I was about to do the trim so I had to improvise a bit!!

I will get some photos of the complete finished articles as soon as I can! The weather has been glorious here so that helps with the photo taking haha!! My nest project is baby booties for a friends new-born niece! They are going very well and are so cute!!

So that’s it for now, I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend!!

A not very crafy post!

Hello one and all :-)

I’ve mainly been working on knitting cardigan’s for my cousin’s little boy’s Teddy bears! I have no clue if that sentence is grammatically correct but you get the picture ;-) Anyway i’m almost done with them now! They just need to be sewn together and posted all the way to Switzerland!! I still haven’t quite finished the baby blanket but that’s because of a lot of fiddly sewing!!

I don’t know if any of you saw on the news about the Sea Odyssey spectacular that was in Liverpool a couple of weeks a go? It was based on a true story about the Titanic! It involved GIANT mechanical robot type things walking around Liverpool to music……..i realise how mad this makes me sound but I have proof…….

Can you see it? It probably doesn’t look that big yet……..

ImageThis bad boy is about 50ft tall!! You really don’t get a sense of how big it is until you see it in real life!! It walked for miles all around Liverpool! I only got to see a tiny bit of it as it walked past my street!! There was also a girl giant who was about 20ft tall and a dog too! The event ran over 3 days and the giants had beds to sleep in and everything! The man giant was trying to find the girl giant and in the end they did! They sailed off together!! The story is quite complicated but if you google Liverpool Sea Odysey I’m sure it will explain better than I can :-P

Image

These photos are taken from my local park! I nearly didn’t go and see it but I’m glad I did now :-) It was nice to see something like this outside of the City Center!!

Image

And here is a photo of a nice Blossom tree as the giant says good bye :-)

Well that is all for now! I hope you are all doing well!!
