Frank's cardy

This is actually a lovely smokey blue colour. It's not photographed well.

I'm an aunty for the second time. Congratulations Emily and Brad. Liam gets my latest creation.
And for his big sister Olivia, to make her feel included.

Tea cosy

I have two friends who have bought retro bach's in the past year. To carry on with the theme, they get a hand knitted tea cosy each. I found a book in the library full of weird tea cosies. I knitted two that were fairly normal looking, as far as tea cosies go.

cosmetic bag

I used this site to help me make my daughter a cosmetic bag. It worked well.
My daughter was quite specific as to what she'd like. It was to be water proof, tick, be able to hold small bottles. tick and not be too cumbersome, tick.

One for Jonny

This has taken a while for a few reasons. We were away from home, we went to Europe for nearly a month. Dogs aren't that easy to paint especially when the owner knows every inch of him. It was a daunting challenge as it isn't small, 600x400mm.

For Baby Frank

I made a painting like this for my friends twins, when they were born. They are ten now. I have made another this week for baby Frank. It is about 40 x 40 cm.

Leather clutch

I finally plucked up the courage to sew the leather. I don't know what my apprehension was about because it sewed up quite easily. I used a few Googled directions that steared me in the right direction. I've added little rings on the sides so I can add a strap.

Just the right size to carry my iPhone and keys.
