Silk and wool

Morning all, a quick post
Some things not made by me this time. I've been elbow deep in black Lycra but it not done yet so as a treat! here's some things my auntie made for me
she dyed this my favourite colour - 
and she drew this owly picture too - on silk
(sorry about my dreadful photo taking)

And now the wool. I should have done this a few weeks ago but this Christmas at church they did a KNIT-ivity, thought it would make you smile

January catch up - inc stocking swap

Hello all,
Hope you've all had a good start to the new year and if you've made them you are keeping your resolutions.
We ended up with making them for each other - I have been told i have to do some exercise and in return the kids have to keep their rooms tidy! not sure it will last long!
I put the sewing machine away as usual over Christmas - if i didn't we'd have bits of thread in our Christmas lunches.
Its back out again now but here is some Christmas makes

'frozen' item!

prints for bedtime
A selection of clothes i made for niece. she had her owl outfit on after lunch!

more cats

Tiny got Fimo for Christmas so she has been making - i had to join in and followed instructions that she NEEEEEEEEDEEEEDDD a pink triceratops!

Anyways - enough of my making -
