Miss Mary and a winner

Hello everyone.

  Here is pretty Miss Mary Mack by La D Da

She didn´t look so happy earlier on during the week when I opened the UFO drawer and saw the sad pale faced Mary, silently questioning me as to why she was still sitting there abandoned when her stitching had been completed ages ago.

I found an old frame which was dull and sad too but that could be covered with a pretty fabric.

and Mary, on liking the red frame, decided to paint her lips to match.

She looks happier now and I am one UFO less.

Blue for You

Hello blogging friends,
As a lot of kind comments were made on my last post regarding my hoop holder, I decided to make another one, blue this time, as a giveaway.  So if you are interested, just leave a comment on this post before the end of next week when I will announce the winner.

The holder measures 9 inches across and has a plain cream coloured lining.

I managed to take some photos this week of my little Spice of Life crocheted blanket, finished some time ago but which still needs to be blocked.

When I started this I wanted to use up those odd balls of wool one has knocking about the house and happily mixed lots of colours, which isn´t my style at all.

However half way through the blanket I decided that I didn´t like the rows done in beige and so I cut them out and then stitch by stitch joined the pattern again and it doesn´t notice at all, or does it?

The border was an easy narrow one.

I am also still knitting squares for my granddaughter´s granny blanket.

Until next week, happy stitching,
