A very well dressed bear!

I keep promising to Blog more often and then life keeps getting in the way 😛 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 😛 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 😛 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 😛

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!!

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!!
