More Marmalade, Sally-boots and Precision

Another busy day of making! First, the rest of the Marmalade so now we have a year’s supply including ‘Breakfast-in-bed’ miniatures and several to give away.

I have finished a pair of Sally-boots for the latest addition to our extended family. They will be posted tomorrow.

Our stair carpet has been beautifully protected prior to painting.

Quirky Garden, Knitting and Trelissick

 

Cushion, Tote Bag and A Leaf

Today’s beat-the-blues was to create stuff. I have made a Harry Potter cushion cover and a reversible tote bag in the same fabrics for Christmas for our Harry Potter mad LiveWire No 4.

Next, I knitted a leaf in turquoise cotton for a very special project that is just beginning.

The Big Picture, Long-Tails and Sally-boots

In this week’s copy of The Big Issue there was an amazing photograph of two Praying mantises that had won the annual Glanzlichter photo contest.

We had Long-tail Tits in the garden today – my favourite little birds.

A friend of ours recently had a baby boy so I have made him a pair of Sally-boots as I make for all new babies, as my welcome to the world.

New Mugs, New Glass and A Quilt

We have found the perfect place to keep our new mugs, bought from our potter friend in Open Studios week. Isn’t the turquoise colour  just gorgeous?

Last week I was sent some new earrings to use in my glass work and this is the piece that they inspired – purple, white and green, a Suffragette piece! 

I came across this quilt a few days ago and loved it. Just look at the work that has gone into it with words from Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, a favourite song that we sing with my choirs.

Chasing Cars
We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me

Old Earrings, Knitting and Owl Wisdom

I put out a call at Suitcase Singers for any old earrings that are no longer wanted and I have been given lots of beauties. These I was given last week and am delighted with them. I take my inspiration for my pieces from the bits of jewellery I am given and just want to find time to get on with these!

Our local hospital uses a traffic light system in the NICU (Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit) to show which new-borns need the most support with feeding. They have run out of orange/amber hats and have asked local knitters to get busy. I’ve made three so far and a fourth on the way. When I have made five, I shall post them off. If you are local and want to join in, I’ll send you the pattern.

My lovely SIL sent me this gem of Owl Wisdom.

Snoods, Designs and A Crocus

I’ve been knitting snoods for a collection of warm stuff for refugees.

The first Wednesday of each month is Sing For Your Heart at the Eco Park. Today was as uplifting as always. There was a goodly collection of donations for the next load going to Calais to help the refugees.  Love the designs in the atrium.

At the Eco Park

Our first purple Crocus has appeared.
