Crafty update

It’s been lovely to be cosy inside our cottage crafting while it’s been like this outside…


Latest pair of socks hot off the needles…


Our grandchildren are delighted with their jumpers…


How many masks can you wear all at the same time? Young Master counted seven!

The current progress of the Coastal stashbusting blanket CAL…


All thanks to  Eleonora . If you love daffodils go check out Eleonora’s here , aren’t they beautiful?  I love the way she has photographed them 💛💛

There’s other crafty happenings on the bobbins, hooks and needles but they can wait for another time 🙂

Bye for now 🌹🌻🌼❤🐤💐

  1. So much fun to see the kiddos in the jumpers! They made the cottage warm and cozy with their presence I bet. The blankets are just flying along, you will have so much fun shopping for new yarn when you have cleaned out your stash!

    1. Aww, thanks Kathy 🙂 We went up to visit them this time. It was lovely to see what they had been doing creatively. I’m kicking myself now that I didn’t take photos of their crocus paintings and pebble painting as they are delightful.
      With all this stashbusting I’m getting a better idea of what I shall purchase when it’s depleted.

  2. You are ahead of me on socks. I just finished the first of a pair. Cast on and am beginning the ribbing for #2. Lovely socks, and delightful sweaters. I can see why the grandkids are thrilled.

  3. You gave me a bit of a shock there as I wondered why your blanket was so much bigger than mine… Then I realised you’re making two!
    I love the jumpers you’ve made for your grandchildren, though i really can’t believe you have grandchildren… You look so young 😊

    1. Aww, yes, there are two 🙂
      That photo was taken five years ago just before I got ill. I had always looked young but not now.
      Thanks so much for commenting 🌼🌼🌼


  4. Darth Vader and his stormtrooper have never looked so good. What great presents and your grandchildren look like they are having a lot of fun. Your socks and blanket a great as well.

  5. Oh, those jumpers are things of beauty indeed! Even better – the grandchildren love them, too. Two blankets on the go AND a pair of socks done? Your needles must be hot with the friction!

    1. Thanks so much Sheila 🙂 Yes I’ve been rather busy 😆 I was a good girl today and actually did some housework before I sat down to knitting another pair of socks (started, not finished!).


  6. Lovely collection of wonderful completed projects. Great socks, so fun to see the kids in their new sweaters and your stash busting blanket is looking great. I especially like the wave type stitch. They way you’ve done it, it has great movement. You’re inspiring us – thanks.
