Third Time Lucky?

I am really hoping that it is third time lucky for the little baby jumper. You will recall that my first attempt at a “pretty little girl’s jumper” was a bit of a failure. (See “A Waste Of Time”.) Well, I chose some 4 ply Naturally Loyal Baby Prints for my second attempt. The pink… Continue reading Third Time Lucky?

Socks And Some Other Things

I have been working on my “Hermione’s Everyday Socks” and some other things over the last few days. The first sock is finished and I have cast on the second.

One Down, Still Many To Go!

As you can see, I’ve finished my little cross stitch, so that's one down of my many projects. I actually finished it on Saturday evening, but needed to get organised to get a photo taken. I still need to find a frame for it. This project was small and straight forward, and I found it… Continue reading One Down, Still Many To Go!

Bits And Pieces

So, yesterday (June 21st) was the shortest day here, and we are nearly halfway through the year. How did that happen! I thought I'd update you on a few bits and pieces that have been happening. I have had a lot going on since we returned from our trip around the South Island. On my… Continue reading Bits And Pieces

Christmas Projects Finished

The photo at the top is of a handmade, cross stitched card which a colleague of mine gave me. It is very special because, although I have given away many cross stitch pieces over the… Continue reading Christmas Projects Finished
