Can I have a drum roll-please!!!!!

Exciting News 
Watermelon Pin Case as featured in Sew Hip Issue 32

The right hand column has a new item added.  Yes,  my Watermelon Needle Case features in the September Issue of Sew Hip Magazine.  So far I have sold 6 of these little guys since they appeared on my website and Folksy shop.
Another best seller is the Abstract Russian Doll Bag.  I've lost count (only in my head)  as to how many of these lovely bags I've sold.  Knitters seem to be going crazy for the design =D
The No 1 Best Seller

My handmade items are doing really well and cater for all craft people.  So if you have a birthday or just need a gift for that special craft person in your life,  head over to my shop for a browse.  I promise you won't be disappointed.

Headbanging time

About two posts ago I spoke about having to make the big decision to frog my Sunshine Cardi,  as it just wasn't me,  then I found a new project called Shimmer by Kim Hargreaves, which I was most excited about.  Well, a week later I'm not liking it at all, I love the look of the pattern, so I think it maybe the yarn colour I'm hating.  I think it may have a hex on it  Lol!  This is now the second time I've used it and  it looks like this  project will have to be frogged too (squirrel walks away, shoulders heavy,  scraping her paws along the woodwork, in defeat) =( I can hear the frog behind me saying "Rip it, Rip it, Rip it, Rip it. Think I'm going to have to place the yarn in the naughty corner for a week or so,  well, until I can least face looking at it again.  Stupid beep-beep frog!!!!

New Knitting

Yes your eyes just bulged out of their sockets, didn't they.  Cause I know mine did.  Isn't this amazing looking.  The little honeycomb puffs are individually made in 4ply yarn then put together to make this awesome multicolored quilt.  I've been rummaging frantically in my stash for mini skeins, oddments and anything else I can get my squirrely paws on.  I want my quilt to be just as fab as this, so I've  joined a Kal  (so I can be nosey and see what everyone else is doing).  If you want to make one too it is designed by  Tiny Owl Knits and the pattern is The beekeeper's quilt.


  1. Yey!!! Congratulations on the magazine and the shop. I can confirm to anybody that the Russian Dolls bag is fab, because I have one!

    Pants to the frogging, but if you feel you're definately not going to wear it, then there's no point in continuing with it.

    That quilt is amazing! I had to enlarge the photo to make sure it was actually knitted! Good luck with yours. :)
