..the first yarn project

So as promised I thought I would add a few things that I made over the last few months, when I have been playing with yarn, as I have been sitting on the sofa watching TV. Note - I started doing this to use up some of the bits and pieces I have had hanging around for years...then I saw some bargains and then DH bought me some for Christmas and so I have twice as much as I started with! Isn't crafting always the same!

So today's show and tell -

... I have been playing dolls clothes...

I have a Sindy all of my own that I bought for a friends daughter back in the 80's, I had the brilliant idea of making clothes for her then - and managed to break her ankle! I didn't take it back as I had bought it direct from someone that worked for Hasbro at the time and was all too complicated - so the upshot of it I have a limping Sindy, that can model anything I make for her - but clearly has problems walking up and down :)

So here are a few bits....

Fluffy scarf and hat

I quickly packed this up when I was away, so wasn't the best card - but did make a bag to go with it! Someone bought it on the market stall :)

And these are tiny placemats that are crocheted using crochet cotton

Oh dear - been off my blog for ages...

...OK I admit I have completely forgotten about this, I just don't know how that happened!

So I thought I would make a quick post to let you all know I added a few pages to the web site, and I am determined to make the odd post on here from time to time.

This picture is available to download for free from the website. A little bit different - I hope that you can make use of it. I have been busy knitting and crocheting - so I will have to show some of my creations on here in the next few weeks.

Sue has also put up a time to create recipe or template - pick what you fancy..the recipe is:
as many as you like of the following:

So you can make a card, do a layout, decorate a box - or whatever takes your fancy.
