Recommended Posts

Today I have mainly been making parkin (to wrap up and keep for the New Year!) mince pies and loads of carrot and coriander soup for visiting rellies tomorrow. I love this time of year when I am almost constantly baking or cooking!

Finished one Pokemon ball cushion, one golden snitch cushion, one ordinary Pokemon character cushion and one ordinary Harry Potter cushion.  I am happy to say I'll never do another round cushion again - what a headache!  Not brilliant but I'm hoping they'll be thrilled!  

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Parkinnnnnnnnnnnn!  No baking yet, although OH has made a ham and it's really nice this year - last year it was sooo salty - seems there was an error in the recipe page!  Big error - and that time it wasn't his fault!

Baking is for tomorrow and wrapping pressies.

Those are gorgeous. I have real admiration for such delicate and tidy work. I love looking at projects on here even though I don't do much myself.

Thanks everyone.  I’ve had 40 years of practice.  I love my crochet and find it very frustrating that I can’t see to do any at the moment.   The patterns aren’t mine.  The central 4.5ft of the throw is ‘Sophie’s Universe’ a free pattern on a blog.  I made up the outer part to extend it to 7ft. The bag is a free pattern from Michelle bags in FB.  Patterns from very talented designers

Lovely work!

I’ve seen the Sophie’s Universe on Ravelry.

Have you seen the new Lionbrand yarn: Off the hook? It’s a prefab yarn, that you use with your fingers. I imagine you could still use it with limited vision. http://www.lionbrand.com/off-the-hook-yarn.html

Yes I have and I probably could.  I have tons of normal yarn bought for projects planned for last year so i’m working towards crocheting by touch and have a strong magnifying lamp.  It’s the double vision that’s worst.  Will wear a patch to craft if I have to.  Just waiting for confirmation that wearing the patch and moving it from side to side won’t cause more problems. 

 

I din’t give In easily 😊

The Phoenix is where I go to paint every week!  What a small world, Chucky Mama.  If you saw the chickens running around, the young bantams are the offspring of my chickens! 

Wow, that is amazing!

I love it there.  The bantams that James hatched from my eggs include one cockerel with amazing colours.  I’ll see if I can take pictures next week when I’m there.
