Welcome to my blog

Hello All who call in at my blog. It is a diary of the sort of things I have made in the past and things I am making now, mostly for Cat Protection to sell to raise funds. My daughter gives me the 'raw' ingredients and I make the goodies.

I have always done knitting crocheting and sewing but rarely displayed it on my other blog, Jumbled Crafts, as that is all about joining in challenges with crafts leaning more towards art.

Bag and cards

We are having really dark, damp and dreary weather here at the moment but nothing like the horrors that friends in other countries are experiencing. Thinking of all of them with love and hope they are all safe.

My daughter took all the things I had made for the Cat Protection and they were ready to be taken to sell. Suddenly one of the hedgehogs started to  move about then Willow emerged from the box. He must have been snuggled in among the knitted things. Fortunately nothing was harmed and everything fluffed up nicely again ready for the sale.

2 old cards two calendar pictures

Old calendar pictures and Valerie's bird photographs
Last's year's kitchen calendar pictures

These were very large card blanks and I decided to recycle some old calendar pictures, use some old cards that I had bought years ago and also use 2 of Valerie's wonderful bird photographs as well.

Another large crocheted bag that was made up as I went along. A very long handle that will go over my shoulder but I expect it will be filled with more wool like the other one and maybe I will hang it up somewhere

Hope you 2018 is going well

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Your story about Willow and the box made me smile. Good thing you hadn't moved that box yet. :) Loving all the art Chrissie. Hugs-Erika

  2. Willow reminds me of Squiggles! Same curiosity, too.

    You are the Queen of recycle. You make my efforts look feeble. I simply adore all those cards. Wonderful way to make something fresh and enjoyable, too.

  3. Willow looks very comfortable in the box, cats always know the best place to be.
    The cards all look beautiful Chrissie great recycling.
