A quick update of my latest makes and work in progress

Mother duck to go with five little ducks- a commission

Mother duck is double the original Ducky Duck size

Staying on the duck theme I had a go at a DIDDY DUCK  and did a 2/3 version of the original

From ducks to elephants- some time ago I made this elephant based on a pattern I found here

302

in preparation for developing a pattern of my own to make a mobile I had been asked to produce…

My first go started as the ‘Can you guess what it is yet?’ post, and ended up with this!

It is made from Crofter DK (reused) and beads from two sources- a broken necklace and a dismantled Christmas decoration!

Whilst on holiday last week I played about with some vintage yarn and button to make myself a new phone holder

I have also been working on a cardigan but will save that for later!

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
