Little Red Car


Nearly finished.  Added revision mirrors, lights, doors, boot, hubcaps, and the wheels are attached.  I was going to write out the instructions as I went along but stopped.  I realised that no one would do what I have just done to make a little car, not even sure I would make another.

Little Red Car

The car is now covered in red felt and has charcoal crocheted bumpers and wheels.  I am not following a pattern, just making it up as I go along.  Not sure it will work, it is fun to have a play.

Little Car

I am making a car and this is the cardboard base.  It is about 12cm long.

Little House Doorstiop

This is the only little house doorstop that I have kept.  It hold our bedroom door open.  I thought it looked really sweet in the sunshine this morning, but the photo makes it look a little creepy.

Needlelace Gnome Finished


I was going to do something different with the beard but it wasn't working, so I did a double layer of needlelace to give it a bit of a gnarly feel.  There is a photo of the gnome in my hand to give some idea of size.  Now onto the next thing that is rattling around in my head.

Needlelace Gnome Progress Next Bit




Up to edging in wire. Lost the tension a bit in the beard but it won’t matter too much as there will be a second stage. He’s only little, but there is a lot of work to him.

Needlelace Gnome Progress





I remembered to take photos along the way.  Was able to make a little slide show of the photos, but Blogger doesn't like that kind of thing, so it is over on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

Needlelace Gnome

I had an idea to do this while making the gnomes for the Christmas window the year before last.  Yes, I know, taking Christmas in February, but it is often Christmas all year at my house.

Knitting Progress

I have this cardigan out on the desk in the craft room and have been working on it here and there.  It's good to do when I am thinking, or when I just need to keep myself busy with a couple of rows before going out.  This is the back and it is coming along.
