What have you all been making...part two...

Recommended Posts

Well Jeanette MacDonald has been in the oil bath for some time (well not total submersion) because the stop motion screw was stuck.  OH used a silicone jar opener and it worked!  So while the weather has been lousy, I've been continuing cleaning her. The amount of lint under the bobbin was disgusting - but protected her from rust! There were lots of different threads on the bobbin - including a thin nylon one in the middle of the others! After a bit of tweaking, she's up and running now with a super straight stitch, so I'm doing a Project Linus kit on her to get her back in the saddle - and me!

 Not been online much recently sorry.  It’s been a rubbish year and I can’t wait for it to end.    Been filling my time with crafts when I can though I‘be struggled to finish anything.  Did finish this though and my photo of him has just been reposted by Stylecraft Yarns

I do find it relaxing, Plum, but mostly do it over the lighter, summer months. However, with enforced 'rest time' due to hip op coming up I am hoping to make a good start on the next one! They are not all big cushion sized; Cleopatra's Needle do some nice, smaller ones but a frame is really helpful to keep it in shape!

I've finally found a craft that I feel excited about. I struggle with most crafts but this one is very forgiving. I made some tiny fairies for cracker type gifts and the rabbit and the dark angel for my black tree. We don't have a proper fairy for our tree and tried to think of something that might be peculiar to us. So the pipe cleaner skeleton should hopefully become a sumo wrestler fairy because we all love sumo.
