Baby Bits

Something a little different today. I’ve no idea why but I fancied knitting a baby cardi with some lovely soft fleece I had spun. I couldn’t find a pattern to work with my homespun so made it up as I went along.


Lovin’ ewe is the logo for all the textiles I make from the wool from our sheep.


This yarn is spun from the wool of one of  three tiny pet lambs called snap, crackle and pop, which didn’t grow any bigger than a sheepdog, but which have the softest of fleece.


So pleased to have managed to make something special from their soft fleece.


I’m wondering if a hand spun, hand knitted baby cardi will sell? I might just have to pop it in our Folksy shop to find out!

Hope your enjoying the lovely autumn days. So warm and sunny!

Bye for now

Happy Halloween

Hi again.
I should have posted this yesterday but ran out of time, baking goodies for a Halloween party. Where does one find vegan Halloween food?
Anyway here it is in all its gouliness!


I was wandering around blogland looking for a challenge or two and came across a challenge which required stamping and text. Just looked for the challenge and I can’t find it anywhere! Oh well! I enjoyed a bit of inking stamping and shading anyway.
Hope you like my slightly ‘different’ journal page!

I just love being cozy and warm on these dark nights, more time to disappear into my craft room to play.

Hope All Hallows’ Eve wasn’t too spooky for you.

Haiku


Falling Leaves
Hide the path
So Quietly

Simply beautiful isn’t it?

Haven’t a clue where I got the Haiku from but do remember that I found it in a Haiku site so if it’s one that you have composed please forgive me for not crediting it.

I made the oak leaves a few years ago, the shape cut out in my Robot Crop then sprayed with layers and layers of  Starburst stains from The Stamp Man, I loved how the colours came together to give the look of autumn leaves.


The fir cone is a Tim Holtz Die and the twig off my hazel in the garden.
Quite pleased with the end result, might be good enough for a wee Christmas Pressie for someone! 

All that’s left to do is wish you a 
Happy Halloween
