Project Roundup

But before we get into the projects, it’s Sarah’s birthday today! Six years, and I still haven’t updated the party hats. She wanted to sit and read all day for her birthday, which is fair enough. And back to the projects: The Palace Library is coming along, slowly. This counter nook has my attention; I’ll…… Continue reading Project Roundup

Project Roundup

I have a few different things on the go at the moment; first is the cash register for The Palace Library, which is long overdue! Remember this jumper I made for Petra? Well, it’s now in six skeins and bundles of yarn, because I want to knit it instead – and adjust the jumper pattern…… Continue reading Project Roundup

Sustainable Beanbags

Some of my older readers may recognise this pouf; I must have made it a few years ago now.

Sarah assures me it’s very comfy.…… Continue reading Sustainable Beanbags

Tee’s Long Sleeves

Either way, Tee loves it! I was inspired by a similarly-constructed cardigan in a crochet…… Continue reading Tee’s Long Sleeves

Winter Garland

All the pieces done…. ….and crocheted together! I made these scarves years ago and they’ve languished in a prop box pretty much ever since, so it’s good to have found a use for them. I love how they look like they’re draped over the white chain. I made three different snowflakes with three different coloured centres. There’s…… Continue reading Winter Garland

Project Roundup

I’ve made three large pots for Tea at Yaz’s, seen here with the smaller pot for scale, so now they’re all ready for Petra to plant some plants in. I also finished adjusting her grey pants! I made the legs slimmer, put on a new waistband and made the elastic inside tighter to stop them…… Continue reading Project Roundup
