Pooh bear

Play time for little two.

Little Two enjoys Pooh bear and friends, so I knitted her a pooh, which multiplied and became two, then to extend to the game, there are a set of books, a kite, a honeypot ,a name tag and a back pack. I think I have had as much pleasure making, as I hope she will playing.

Mercurial time

Where does it go to, time that is.
Having planned my summer work, fate stepped in and took time away for a while.
Getting back on course now and am knitting Whinnie the Pooh for our granddaughter.

I will post a picture when he is completed.
The hot weather we have had this summer, was a lovely surprise.
Light clothing and light meals, whilst sitting out in the lovely late evenings, enjoying the garden.
England is not used to such extended periods of heat and moving towards Autumn, the cooler weather descends again. I can not help but feel it will be a long winter, given the fields are bare already.

My wall hangings were put on hold, but the cooler times make sewing them a good project.
As said we have two fantastic daughters. Having set my new phone up and running, Dancin' has also enabled me to post pictures and posts direct to my Blog.

So no more delays I will get Whinnie finished and start the sewing.

No Knitting...Except This

Well to be truthful I had started this jumper some time ago.
It is a Debbie Bliss pattern and appealed to me.
I hope it appeals to little two as well.

Knitting put away and Sewing making an appearance

Spring has put in a sunny appearance, a few days of it any way and I am
nearly to grips with the garden and greenhouse, when these are
able to be maintained in a couple of hours, I will start indoor creative projects.

Knitting and crochet will be put away for a while.
I remembered that I had bought two quilt wall hanging kits some time ago,
they are oriental style and my next project and  will be gifts for my daughters,
Caged Minutes and In The Pink.

As mentioned I have had difficulty in posting pictures but would love to show the hangings.
Another lesson needed, so a request to In The Pink will help me in that respect.

A memo to me now.
Following the quilts, I plan to make a lace crochet bed cover for my home
I have made three king size in the last twenty years in between a host of other projects.
One for a friend and one each for my daughters.

Following the bed cover, I plan to try a tunic with my own design lace inserts.
Nothing ventured nothing gained.

He Has Evolved!

Evolving Owl

Well things evolve and the owl I was making, evolved into a toy rather than a glove puppet.
This required some extra knitting to give him legs, claws and feathers to warm his knees.
I am needing assistance to publish pictures and Dancin' from In The Pink, has offered to help me.
So Owl will put in an appearance soon.

Another member in our small and delightful family

We have a 16 month young baby granddaughter in our small family.
She joins our grandson, who is 14 years her senior.
It has been so pleasing to watch them both grow and form their own identities.
With the advantage of technology, keeping in touch has been so easy and video links add to our pleasure in watching family events, for such times as we can not be together.
Our grand daughter goes under the moniker little two, little one is already is spoken for.
Little two enjoys nature and seems very fond of Owls.
It is soon to be her naming day and I had an idea that a glove puppet owl would amuse her, while giving her parents an added thing of interest when reading her bed time stories.
I have part made the owl and will post a picture when it is complete.
