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

Blankets, hedgies and Easter

Hi Friends and family

We are having a strange patch in life where a lot of things aren't going too well. Poor Vic isn't well after a tooth extraction went very wrong. I am trying to be a good nurse and he is a very good patient thank goodness. It has meant I am sitting quietly and doing knitting and crocheting with the odd bit of mixed crafting thrown in as well.

Here are some baby hedgehogs made from little bits of glittery wool found at the back of the wool cupboard. More kitty blankets and all of those were made from old garments I unpicked.

I wanted to make something for the charity coffee morning at our doctor's surgery so I made chicks with Cadbury's eggs inside and some knitted flowers with chocolate eggs with no filling. I used a glue gun to fasten the eggs in place on the flowers. The sale is on the last Friday of every month so plenty of time to take them there.

Today I am going to make a few cards though haven't any ideas so far.

Nice to have you pop-in

Love Chrissie xx
