There is a surprise giveaway over at pumpkin country’s blog.

So hop on over if you fancy being in with the chance of a surprise.

I’ve already signed up…LOL

What can I say, I like surprises.


Well Done Jesse…

she managed to raised £255 towards her trip to Africa. Kathy won the quilt, congratulations to her.

I managed to win myself a little fabric from Andrea, Welshquilter, Jesse’s mum. Thanks Andrea.

So every one is happy.

I wish you all the best in all that you do Jesse, have a good trip.

Wow back again…

I don’t know what has happened to me.

I am posting for a dear blog friend, Andrea, from Welsh Quilter.

Her daughter Jesse, has a once in a life time chance of going to Africa, but the students have to raise the money themselves.

Any way they are doing a quilt raffle for one of Andrea’s gorgeous quilts to help pay for Jesse’s trip.

I will let you go over to her blog and read all about it for your selves. Follow the link Jesse’s Trip Fund

Hi World…

Sorry to be away for sooooooo long, but where does time fly? OMG, its nearly May already.

Any way, first up, I want to thank Faharna for the inspiration for this blankie



Masha Allah I love how you did it Faharna, see it here.

It is a very similar pattern, that I thought would be good practice for my crochet, as I haven’t done much since I was little, and then I couldn’t make granny squares, square. So I gave up, until recently.

I am working on a lap blanket at the moment and I will be… if I can get a picture of it that turns out. The pattern cannot be seen at all. I don’t know if its the colour of the wool or what.

So when it is finished if I still can’t get a good picture I will post a link so you can see what it looks like with a proper picture LOL

Speak to you all soon


I have been working on a Victorian style bracelet which has taken me ages as it is all beaded, but I like how it has turned out.

Tell me what you think.

Lastly some bad news, my lovely Hubbies dad died last the weekend.

Keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Speak soon


Baby H’s mouse mittens


Rabbit mittens

rabbit mitts

WordPress is finally letting me add pictures again, yippee!

The mittens above are my new knitting venture. It has taken me so long to find a pattern that works I have totally missed the cold and snow for Baby H.

Never mind, I’m sure there will be more cold weather for him to wear them.

The rabbit mitts (I really don’t think that they look like rabbits) were supposed to be a birthday present for the little girl next door.

It was her 2nd birthday last week, but on the day her mum had a total freak out session on hubby, so needless to say I didn’t go to the little un’s birthday party,

so they are still sitting on my desk waiting…

I have also started making some jewelry. I am having fun making it. Its like quilting and knitting. It totally relaxes me. i have so much jewelry now that I need a second jewelry box.

Even hubby has been having a go…

This is the first thing that he made me

made by hubby

With these earrings to match


This is one of the first charm bracelets that I made

Turqoise charm bracelet

Turquoise is one of my favourite stones and my birthstone

If you want to see more of what I have been up to go to my Flickr page.

I even have some cards that I need to take pictures of. Will add them soon.

Hopefully I won’t be away for so long next time.

There have been abnormal cells, colposcopy clinics and antidepresant tablets, need I say more…

I haven’t even been quilting. I have made one and half quilts in four months.

I have three or four more quilt tops that are pinned and just need quilting and binding and then putting up for sale.

Be there soon.

Will be seein’ ya’ soon

You have probably noticed that I have changed my name, did it by deedpoll a couple of months ago, so no more Claire (except mum)

Still here…

Hi every one still here. Just a quick post to let you know what I have been up to. Well I did go into a load of info and try to add pictures of what I have been up too, but wordpress is having a silly session, won’t upload pictures and has deleted the whole post, so hopefully I will be updating this tomorrow.

If you would like to see pics go over to my flickr page and take a look.
