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 and other charities, to sell to raise funds. My daughter gives me the 'raw' ingredients and I make the goodies.

Add to this a selection of knitted garments for friends and family and you can see that I fill many happy hours with my knitting, sewing and crocheting

More Chicks and cards

Hi All

Such a strange week for weather here and it hasn't suited my joints at all . I didn't know I had. Still managed a walk most days and went to see MIL yesterday. Now she is off most of the medication she was taking so is different and more alert but not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing as she is now complaining more about other things. The good thing is that we felt better about going to see her and less responsible for every little thing.

Last of the chicks already for Linda to take back as she and Graham are coming to stay tomorrow until Wednesday, weather permitting that is. The last lot were knitted from  odd bits and bobs of wool and all chick colours I hope.

More Christmas cards using the images Linda bought a very long time ago. A lot of them are Lily of the Valley and are in packets or pad versions. I recall years ago helping her make kits to give to the local  brownies troop to make cards. She designed the cards and then we made all the elements needed to make the card and one of the things in the packs was an image from like these. It did mean that the cards were a variety and the girls enjoyed making them, then they sold them to raise funds. We had fun making all the packs as well:)

Have a great weekend

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Gorgeous post and look at all of those chicks, wow you have been busy. Yes the joints don't like some climates we have to put up with, take care my friend.
    Good MIL is more alert, just ignore the other complaints..she is fine.xx [aNNie]

  2. The chicks look so sweet you will miss them when Linda takes them to the Charity store, the Christmas cards look fantastic as well.
    Good that MIL is getting off the Meds, I would be letting the complaints go walk about as well,
    Have a good time when Linda and Graham arrive.

  3. The last of the chicks are adorable. I am in awe of all those you have made. You are SO good about doing this. I know you get nothing in return, except respect of course, but I am truly in awe of what you are doing for the cat charity. Bleubeard gives you two paws up, too!

    Those are darling Christmas cards. My favorite is the little girl with the teddy bear. Enjoy your time with Linda and Graham. Glad you had a chance to see your MIL, too. I hope she gets those meds sorted properly soon.

  4. I love all of your beautiful knitted creations, what a fantastic display. Hugs, Valerie
