Who's gone? My muse that's who. I can't think of anything to say lately - can you imagine me not having anything to say? Well neither can I but it's true!
I think blogging is something you need to do regularly otherwise you lose the inclination. However all is not lost and in the time I have saved by not being on the computer all the time I have been busy making things. This little dear is for a friend's little girl for when her new baby brother or sister arrives. I'm afraid her hairstyle is a bit like mine as the pattern (from an old Woman's Weekly) says "cut strands of yarn and stitch to doll's head" but it doesn't say how!!
The cushion above on the left is one I made earlier and have in my guest room so when a friend admired it I decided to make one for her too - not quite the same but then each piece is unique!
I've made 3 pairs of these in different yarns and given two away and kept this one for myself as I find them so useful and the pair I already had are getting tatty.
A mohair shawl with a corsage. Using up some yarn given to me by a friend.
And finally my proudest achievement the beginning of a little lap quilt! Spurred on by the news that my wanderer is to return within weeks instead of months and she will feel the cold after 2 years travelling in Australia. Made using up fabric I already had - see I CAN do it!! However now comes the difficult part the wadding, backing and finally the quilting . I'll let you know how I get on!
Postscript added 16/1/12 - Spent yesterday afternoon quietly cutting up oranges whilst listening to Classic Fm to make marmalade and now have 9 pots of Seville orange marmalade to add to my "makes"!
