They are out early this year
Off for a stitchy weekend.


Just the usual at the moment.

Pin cushions, I did stick to the original pattern and put my own designs away for another day.  These need stuffing.  I am considering using them as a "decor" item rather than as pin cushions.  It all depends if I can find an interesting basket or bowl to display them in.  I tea- dyed the fabric and used the off-cuts from my woollen skirt as my base materials.  I found 1 lone piece of green woollen fabric in my felt stash which I used.  The buttons are from a little bundle of antique buttons I bought in the USA.  Just the place to use those.

And I am still knitting the "Izzi Dolls".  I have a bundle now which need to be stuffed and features added.

There are so many variations on this basic pattern. How cute are these ones  I found on Instagram.

The rest of the time is dealing with home schooling, and that takes some dealing with.
