Hi every one, I’m still here. Just a quick post to say Merry Christmas to each and every one.
I hope that you all have a great holiday, will post pics in the new year.
I hope that you are all doing well. Wow, been busy. Sorry for not posting pics of the cat and mouse quilt sooner, but they are here now…
This is exactly as the pattern asks for fabric wise. The quilting is too in the center, but on the border The pattern shows quilting along every line, but as it was a custom order and I was running out of time, I just did some large stippling. It still looks ok though. I am pleased with it. The only thing that I am not pleased with is the person who bought it left no feedback what so ever. Didn’t even send me an email to say that it arrived. I know the have it though as the day they ordered this quilt they had bought another one of me, which I posted. They didn’t leave feedback or let me know that it arrived, so when it was time for posting this quilt I sent it signed for so I could track it on the internet. So I know they have this one… Aren’t some people strange…
Any way, the main reason I have been away for so long is that we went back to Bahrain for the Eid celebrations to see Hubbies family and surprise them. They were all a bit shocked. It was nice to be back for a while. But back in the UK now. It has been very wet since we got back and I’m not sure if I’m jetlagged or if I have got this SADS thingy from the depressing weather, but I can’t get my backside into gear. I am so tired. Feeling a little better now though.
The socks that I knit for Baby H, I haven’t taken pics of Hubbies socks yet (Bad blogger), let me know if you see a trillion mistakes or dropped stitches. I’m sure you knitters will see something…LOL
Baby H’s socks. They are a bit long in the leg, but I followed the pattern and this is what I got. Baby H loves them. He calls them his rainbow socks. So what can I say?
Speak soon, hopefully it won’t be as long next time.
for you to look at, as I have been busy with a cat and mouse quilt in blue. Will post you some pics when its finished so you can see what it looks like in blue. I am looking forward to seeing it finished. Any way the cards, and they are listed in my ebay shop if you would like to buy one…
This one has a matching envelope
This one is not for sale, its the card I made for Gran for her birthday, I just forgot to post about it. It is hand embroidered. Gran says she is going to frame it…
I have been working on a special commission quilt for a lovely lady called Natalie.
It’s all finished and sent of and I received an email from her today saying it has arrived safely and she likes it.
Natalie bought the picture blocks and sent them to me, and I went from there.
Glad you like it Natalie.
I have finally finished the socks. Sorry I haven’t posted for a while, been working on a commission order. Will post pics when its finished. I couldn’t work on it yesterday as I have pulled a ligament in my right shoulder, and guess what I am right handed…
Any ways, pics of the socks
Time to knit hubby some socks,
I’ve been knitting. Toadstools to be exact. I very often browse around the blog Purlbee and a few days ago they had a tutorial for knitting a baby toadstool rattle, I thought I gotta have a go at that one. It was all stitches that I could do, that mum taught me when I was a kid. So here here we have it, my toadstoll rattle…
and it RATTLES!!!!! Yay…
I am quite pleased at how it turned out and all the stitches are right. Actually they aren’t. I had put it on the needles the wrong way round. If you see the rows of purl stitches, well there are only supposed to be a couple of rows that are purl and the rest are knit. I don’t know how I managed to do the rows in purl, but after a couple of rows I realised that I wasn’t knitting, so when I got to the end of the row I started the next purling and voila it has knit all the way down. Anyway i think it looks groovy even if the colours are naff.
I am now knitting some socks. I got some wool of ebay (the wool on the stem) and I have knitted about 3/4 of my first sock. Not bad seeing as I have never used double needles before. I have had to purchase a second set as the first ones I bought were 30cm and kept poking my eyes out, these new smaller ones are much easier for knitting socks with LOL.
Will post pictures when it is finished.
Over on Hugs and kisses blog. She is giving away a taggy blankie which is absolutely gorgeous. So if you would like to be in for a chance of winning pop on over. Good luck every one.
