Busy Bee,,,

that's me!!!
I have finished my Hitch Mitts,,
Took me a while to get these knitted but spent most of Sunday finishing them off! Not bad looking.

I have finished my Hitch 3,,

And this is a picture of all 3 Hitchhikers together. The mitts match the middle scarf!

I have finished my house block for my BOM,,

And I decided that my interchangeable circular needles needed a case,,, so,,, using the tutorial on this blog I made this,,

I did the zippy pocket 'my way', and it only took 3 hours or so,, from deciding which fabric to use, to the button!!

No Title,,

I know blog posts don't always need titles,, but it is a little difficult to think of one sometimes!
Remember this,,,
He is no longer on the plinth at Salisbury Cathedral,,, but Maggi kindly sent me an email with this link , and , this one too. Interesting reading!!!

We had new sofas delivered recently,, and I decided to make arm covers for them.
 DH has a pocket for the remotes and his glasses,, he keeps losing them!
And I made a couple of cushion covers for mine!!!

I won a giveaway on Kerstins blog at the end of December,,
Gorgeous fabric,, can't wait to use it.

I wanted to have a little hand sewing project to get on with in the evenings,, and tried a 6.5 inch wonky star block,, but it was a bit fiddly. So I am making them on the sewing machine instead.

I have only made four at the moment,, but I like them. I am calling the quilt, when it is finished, Swonky Stars!
