Blessed

I am so over joyed that my great grandmother’s 1917 Singer sewing machine is back in working order thanks to my youngest son Tom. Thank you Tom. Last night armed with my Cath Kidston Sewing Book, I started work on my first project a pillow case for my grand daughter’s room. It did not turn out as planned but I am pleased with my first attempt. I am really interested in combining sewing with crochet so watch this space for future projects.

At last the colour has come back into my life..

Hip, hip hooray at last the colour has come back into my life. I have spent the last six weeks under the weather with various ailments. But today, the colour has returned..yeah!
I am currently working on a cushion cover for my lounge. The colours I think you will agree are so cheerful and are certainly filling me with joy and gratitude.

Perfect Pinkiness

At last, I have finished my granddaughter’s blanket for her new big girl’s bed. I am very proud! The granny squares have been joined together using the ‘join as you go’ method. There are lots of great You Tube clips that illustrate this method. I love the different shades of pink that all compliment each other. I am now feeling inspired…pass my hook quick!

Cup cakes , birthdays and ponchos

It’s been a crazy few weeks but when I look back I can’t see why it was so crazy. I am taking a deep breath and I am calm…. It’s my scrumptious grandaughter’s 2 nd birthday tomorrow so I have been busy baking cup cakes with a sprinkling of fairy dust.
My poncho is taking shape and I am loving the colour combination. I have noticed lots of ponchos in the shops so I am right on trend ha ha.
Hope you enjoy my pictures illustrating the past week in the Dannycat household x.

Midweek

Feeling sad this morning listening to the news so I am trying to focus on gratitude and all the good things in the world that make me smile.
As you can see my poncho project is taking shape and I have also made a flower brooch for a wedding I am attending this weekend. The flower pattern is from Nicki Trench’s book Cute and Easy Crochet with Flowers.
