Hello and thanks for looking at my blog. I am a complete beginner but hope to show you some of the things I have been working on.

Fusion again!

I finally got round to finishing the poinsettia table mat.

And also a few other items...

A wooden fruit bowl painted with pine branches

 Acouple of Pringles tubes.
These will be given to a lady at the W.I. wo fill with home made cookies for the xmas raffle

this is the side of a box, and here is the lid

This is ashiny bronze box with a plastic coating so I couldn't crackle or emboss it.


And this is a silver box.


As well as card making and painting, I'm also a keen knitter.  Although I knitted for my children when they were small I'd got out of the habit but took it up again when convalescing after knee surgery.  I joined a group that knits for charity and my needles hve been clicking ever since. I also join a group knitting for ourselves and have recently formed a group in our local branch library in a bid to keep it open.

Here is a childs jacket made from self patterning wool.  It was admired so much I thought I would share it with you.

I've also become obsessed with curly scarves

Here are just  a few!

I've also been knitting hats and scarves for the elderly.  This was a request from the fire service so they can hand them out to pensioners who can't afford to run the heating.  It's scandalous isn't it?
