Today we are going to start decorating the lounge so I am trying to get up to date with posts before Vic gets out the paint and ladders. Every room will be disrupted as we move stuff to make way for the ladders and everything else that goes with decorating. I just 'help' by encouraging the worker and making lots of tea or coffee as required.
This week I have been making little comfort blankets. not sure where they will end up but I thought maybe a children's hospital would like them. Everything has to be sewn on really well and especially ears and arms as small children usually carry things around by the ears or the arms.
The runt of the family-first attempt.
Linda brought some really thick wool so I thought I would try one of the balls. You need to use 00 needles that are enormous and the huge ball of wool just made the one cushion cover. Not sure I will make any more of these as it was heavy and very hard work. Maybe I will use the rest of the balls of wool to make a rug.
Have a great weekend and thank you for calling in
Love Chrissie xx
