Bunnies, Bibs and things!
These lovely cuddle bunnies and dribble bibs were created by Janice. What a talented lady! Janice was inspired to make these when she saw them in a book. She used cotton fabric backed by fleece from Ikea. Lovely gifts for somebody.
Stephanie just loves to knit! This pram blanket is based on an old pattern which Stephanie updated with her choice of colours and then she improvised to create the border. Stunning!
As you know I've been trying my hand at crochet recently. I really struggle with crochet and feel more comfortable knitting. However, nothing ventured, nothing gained.........
June had another finish to show us. This beautiful watermill scene was started some time ago and left to mature. I think you will agree that the completed cross-stitch picture is lovely and is crying out to be framed.
Yvonne is the whiz kid with the pompom yarn. She completed this crib blanket and presented it to the proud new parents. you can see a photograph of the blanket in its crib looking magnificent. I love pompom blankets!
Catriona enjoys knitting with the vintage patterns. This gorgeous white jacket is knitted in herringbone stitch and looks wonderful. The little hat just finishes off the outfit. Cute, cute and cute. Fabulous work!
The case of the missing doggy coat! A couple of weeks ago Janice brought in a dog coat along that she had knitted for her son's Jack Russell pup. The pictured dog coat disappeared into the pc and then surfaced in places it should not have been in! Anyway, this is a dog coat that Janice improvised and I have no doubt that it will be the first of many. Go on, admit it, it was worth waiting for!
Not too many finishes this week due to the holiday season.
The lovely Swati had a baby girl at the weekend. Mother, Daddy and baby doing well. The proud grandparents are over the moon!
