This set contains a pin cushion, needle book and five stitch markers.
This set is themed on Liqorish Allsorts.
I have been very busy since I last posted my little ones have been battling a sick bug and my 4 year old has had it the worst, so much so he got taken to hospital in a ambulance.  Thankfully he is alright and it was a precaution that NHS 24 took. Anyway he is on the mend and will maybe be back to nursery tomorrow as he has been asking all day!   I have had an idea for a little while but have been unsure of doing it. 

Yellow Liqorish round sweet pin cushion.

Then idea started when I was crocheting one night and needed a stitch marker (for those of you who dont know a stitch marker is for when your knitting or crochet and your doing a circle and you need to know where you started,) and quickly made one, from one of my fimo sweets.  It work out that well I made more.  While I was crocheting I thought about pin cushions as I always pin them to myself (bad idea you would think I would learn as I am alway pricking myself.) and thought what else could I add to it to make it a set.

 I added a yellow liqorish round sweet pin cushion, a Bertie Basset inspired needle book to keep all you needles in and the 5 little stitch markers.

This Bertie Basset needle book is great for keeping all
your needles in.
I hope you really like it because I do and I am already thinking about what else I could do along these lines.

These will be going on my folksy page very soon here is the link for you to have a look. x x x


It has a felt page middle so you can keep lots of needles in.
These 5 little stitch markers have a hook which has been filed
so that they wont catch the wool and are easy to slip out you work.

Give away

Hi everyone just thought I would share what I've made the last couple of nights. It is a dummy holder in the shape of a cat ( I know its my first attempt at amigurumi my husband think it looks like a frankinstein mix between a cat, bear and dog).  

It's free to a good home I will even pay the postage. I will be posting it on my facebook page tomorrow at some point all you need to do is be the 1st under the post.  Click the link to my Facebook page x x x

Molly's Leg warmers

I just wanted to show you one of my latest projects. This is Molly's leg warmers, they were created after an experiment suggested by a friend.
I knitted her little girl a pair of pink leg warmers which she loved.  I am now planning a few pairs and I will be adding them to my folksy shop soon. 

I am also currently working on a wee pair of baby booties and plan to make Fimo strawberry buttons for them.

Hope you like them speak soon.

my first post

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  I will start by tellling you all a little about myself. 

I am a wife to a negleted husband and mother of 3 (4yr old boy called Charlie and the twins Molly and Alfie who are 2yrs old)  They all keep me very busy but I still find time to do what I love which is crafting.  Over the years I have dabbled in just about everything but the things I keep going back to is Jewellery Making, Knitting and Crochet.  I also love love fimo. 

I have for as long as I can remember have always sewn, knitted and crocheted thanks to the tutorials like many others from my Grandmother and Mother. My specality is starting a project and either not finishing it or finishing it a year later. 

My experimenting with jewellery making started when the twins were born, I suffered from postnatal depression quite badly and found it a very theraputic.  It was a way for me to switch off but soon be came and obbcession (which my poor husand put up with as I eventually stated to take over a corner of the living room.  This eventually lead to me selling my items to family and friends and when my confidence grow a little more to anyone who would buy my items.

Lately I have racked out my knitting needs and crochet hooks and have started pottering with them again.  I intend to use this blog to share my secrets and show you my work. 

I would appreciate any feedback you could give me so that I can grow my little shops on Folksy and Etsy and well as my facebook page.  So please feel free to leave comments and feedback. 

Anyway better go I have 3 little monsters to get ready for bed.  I intend to post again with my latest project my toddlers leg warmers.
