Woolly Stuff

I have been hooking as usual, not much to show but I have started yet again another blanket. I did some fingerless mitts. And some CAL mystery squares 
Oh and I was making yet another blanket.
I have some yarn pics to share

Love to craft

Today was Quiltathon day in Old Dalby, I did arrive at 9am I certainly didn't make it to 11pm, even though it is called that it is just a do whatever craft you wish from 9am to 11pm. I left just before 8pm. I did a workshop today. Making a heart decoration. And I made my second tablemat set, had to add Cats!
When I left I had started a bag, here it is when I got home. Just the outside done.
But had a play today it is nearly finished just need to put handles on it now. For my first bag I am quite pleased. I did sort of ignored the instructions after a while as they were confusing me.

An update

I currently don't have access to a computer. So I am going to attempt a post from my phone.
I did a workshop last week and I made the first set of placemats.

Today the work shop was to do this, I used one of my wedding photos

And here is my cat tea cosy.

I am still crocheting bits and bobs, and trying to keep up with a few exchanges. but their will be some changes this year so I may not be around as much, I will post as and when I can and remember too.
I am going to Wonderwool at the end of April, and looking forward to it also meeting up with some ladies I have spoke online to for many years but never met!
I hope the weather is not too bad where you are xx

Plans for 2015

As you know from my last post I am going to Crochet some items for Charity, I am hoping to keep a record here on my blog.(Fingers Crossed)
 But I am going to try and attend more events also this year, I will be going to Yarndale, and maybe some others if funds allow.
 I am hoping to document my stash purchases as well, I do have a Ravelry account so mostly it will be on there, but I am hoping to share with you all.
So yesterday I bought some wool and today some wool came in the post.
This was bought from B & M
I bought this Patons Fab, from The Range.

I also took a trip to Hobbycraft for some more Women's Institute Premium wool

I did finish this hat which is a challenge from The Crochet Crowd
It is sized for a small woman as it is too small for me, but it will go towards my charity crochet.
I also made a cover for a Diary, for my Charity makes for Big Hearts Square Group on Facebook I used some pure wool mini balls I bought at The Bakewell show.
Oh the wool that came in the post today.
This mini skein pack is from The Knitting Goddess.
This is called Drop Dead Fred(who remembers that film?) from the The Yarn Tree who is actually based in Derby, so I love buying locally

New year wishes (pic heavy)

For you all, I had a lovely Christmas and New year, I hope you all did.
We had my Mum over Christmas day and New Years Day. I got some lovely pressies, I hope you did too.

I found this half done in an old JCS ornie mag so I finished the stitching, It may get made into something before next Christmas,
 My daughter made this
 This is me at work, LOL
 My puddy cats came to stay at mine over Christmas, I am not suppose to have pets in the house but better than them being alone xx


 A Yarn Bin
 Cath Kidston Bag
 Monkey Pattern
 and lots more
 This was a Secret Santa exchange, with some lovely ladies on Ravelry

I just love this Gorguss Ornament I got

I used the yarn that was in my secret Santa

I went over to Aldi, bought some woll as I am going to be doing some Crochet for charity this year.

So far I have made three baby hats. I have just finished a Crochet Challenge will share that in a different post.
Ta taa for now my lovelies xx

The Holidays are coming....

Yes, I am feeling quite Christmassy, I am sat here wearing my PJ's and a Santa's hat.
I only want to do Christmassy things, so I am attempting some mini snowmen.... yes well a few more attempts needed I think.

Christmas tree is up, a few bits here and there, I cannot find all my X-stitch ornaments, I know they are here somewhere but my mind is blank on where they are!

Just in case I don't post before Christmas, Have a good one xx

Currently on the hook

I have these in my basket next to my sofa, I do have circular in there but haven't got any further as of yet. It will be a foot pouffe. But it does cause the hands to hurt doing it.

I had been looking after 5 kittens for the past couple months. They went to Cats Protection today and I am a little bit sad. I will miss their snuggles and little motorboat purrs. But they will have wonderful pets. I just hope they are not waiting too long.

I have a finish!
I had run out of this wool which is from B&M and my local store had also run out of this colour, but my lovely friend Ann bought some for me at her local store. Isn't she an Angel xx

The design is on Ravelry , it is a Scoodie, By Melissa Grice the design does have ears but I decided not to do them
