Teacher Thank Yous

Hello

It is usually around this time of the year that I used to have to think about a Thank You gift for my boys teachers, but thankfully they are now both at secondary school and don’t do that sort of thing anymore.  I then stumbled across this photo from many years ago when my little one was at primary.  It took him ages to write the notes (using my much used Sizzix tag die).

The hearts are stuffed with pot pourri and are crocheted using a lovely variegated cotton.

I hope the teachers liked them.

Thanks for visiting.

Patchwork Hippo

Hi

I am so excited to share my finished patchwork.  It’s not bad for a beginner.

The pattern can be bought here from Heidi Bears and its well worth a visit.

Now, the pattern is a crochet pattern but I adapted it for patchwork as I was in that sort of mood.  But I am going to try the crochet version as well.

The picture doesn’t show very well but I made him nice and dinky.  He is about the length of my hand.

I hope you like him as much as I do.

Thanks for visiting my little blog.

The answer to a UFO!

Hi

Do you reminder a while ago I blogged about some random half-finished amigurumi bits. They looked like this…

Well I finished it, or rather him…

Isn’t he great.  I found this fabulous pattern on the internet, search for Amigurumi Elmo.  I believe there was a cookie monster to go with him.

One UFO down, plenty more to go.

TTFN.

Ooops. Have just bought something else.

Hello

It all started with a cup of tea and the thought that I would just spend five minutes looking at inspiration as to what to do with my patchwork hexagons….little did I know you could do so much.  And then I found this adorable hippo and just had to buy the pattern.  I strongly suggest you take a look.

Now I realise this is a crochet pattern and not patchwork, but what the heck I thought, lets start that as well.  So, time to find my crochet hook….I know its here somewhere.

TTFN.

Warning of UFO’s

Hello

I hope I am not alone with the ever growing collection of Unfinished Objects.

I found this collection of ‘things’ recently and luckily the colour was the only clue as to what it was intended to end up as.  Can you guess?

I then remembered trying the same pattern on some variegated pastel wool to see how it turned out. Maybe for a baby?

I have learnt the lesson of leaving projects half done, or in this case 90% done, before and the frustration and annoyance at coming back to the project not understanding the intention or idea originally behind it.  I still clearly haven’t learnt.

I wonder how long before the stitching is done?
