Bits and Pieces




Hi all :)

Life is going at a gentle pace for once, which will probably soon change once our paint etc is delivered (fingers crossed for tomorrow!!) and i have been enjoying a bit of crocheting :)

 Like this adorable tea cozy, which i am immensely pleased with


Working on the next one

The colours reminded me of Cornish-Ware 
(Handsome Bearded Wonder in the background :)  )


I also made a little wreath, it's rather skinny as it's an old embroidery hoop , but it works. 


I've also got a "new" kitchen dresser, as you know i'm the mistress of improvisation ;)
  The computer table and the pantry shelves are now happily residing in the kitchen, and shall look much nicer when they are painted. As our kitchen is so skinny this was the best picture i could get and i had to lean over the sink to get it hahaha :D  

I'm also going to take off the doors and have some form of curtain going across instead

  5. Your tea cosy is lovely, you're very clever. I've never done any crocheting which involves shaping.

    1. Thank you Jo :) once you get the hang of it it is very easy, just like a hat with holes haha :) there is also a method of staring out flat, from the bottom, creating the holes for the handle and spout then joining together and gently decreasing as you get to the top xx
