Welcome to my blog

Hello All who call in at my blog. It is meant for me to change my way of life but you are welcome to read it and maybe be inspired yourself if you need to change. It is also a diary of these sort of things made past and present.
I have always done knitting crocheting and sewing but rarely displayed it at all even though I have had craft blogs and forums for many years and joined in Craft Challenges on Blogger since early 2011. The crafts on the blogs were all about artwork, tags, cards etc. and I didn't show much of my real passions at all. Time seems to pass so quickly these days I decided to fit in more of what I like doing best.

Comfort blankets

Hi All

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.

Opened out

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

  2. I love those blankets, so sweet, I want one in my size! Have fun being the decorator's mate, I have to do it all myself here, more's the pity! Hugs, Valerie

    1. Be careful what you ask for Valerie lol

      Love Chrissie

  3. Adorable. You must knit constantly to accomplish so many projects! Hugs-Erika

  4. I know people who sell these on Etsy, and I am in awe that you make them for charity. Your heart must be as big as the projects you create. Those little blanket animals are incredible. SO cute.

    Have fun playing host to workers this week. I would love to join you, but I have projects of my own that no one can seem to help me with (grin).

  5. Wow, Chrissie these are so adorable. I am sure they are all going to find new homes and be loved. You make fantastic things for the charities you support and I'm sure these will be welcomed at a childrens hospital.
    Your cushion looked FAB as well.
    Good luck with the decorating, Vic will appreciated the tea's and coffee's.
