Jar Lid No.3



A Tiny Teddy on a Bed.  A granny square blanket and linen sheets.  I thought Robin could use this on her Sleepy Tea container.

Jar Lid No.2


Ladybug Garden.  I started with a sashiko-like stitching of white circles on blue linen.  There is a large circle around the outside, a smaller one in the middle and eight small circles.  Then I added some green and red french knots.  The flower is five crocheted petals and french knots in the centre.  I have had some ladybug pins for a while, just what this little garden needed.  The pin has been snipped down to fit and put in place with superglue.

Jar Lid No.1


Litte Reindeer Head.  The head is crocheted in perle cotton and is about 4cm from bees to top of antlers.  The backing fabric is a little piece of Harris Tweed.

Happy Birthday Mum


It is my Mother-in-law Robin's birthday today.  We asked if there was a course she wanted to do, or a book she had her eye on, and she asked for decoration in the lids of her storage jars.  I have given several Moccona coffee jars with different things in the lids before.  Six lids were posted down to Melbourne, filled and posted back to Sydney.  I will show each one and how they were made in the following days.

New Reindeer

This reindeer is similar to the others I have made, but different.  He needs a bit of tweaking, but is coming along.

Christmas Car



Finished.  The tree was already made a little while ago.  Now there is a fleet of two little cars.  I'm afraid that is all there will be.  I made this second one to see if I was a bit quick to dismiss the pattern, but no, not a pattern I could easily explain, or that people would really want to do.

Crocheted Snowflake

It felt so cold here in Melbourne yesterday that is seemed appropriate to play with snowflakes.

Navy Recruits Photo

I am a member of a Wrans group on FB.  Someone posted some photos from their time in the Navy.  I had to look closely, but I'm in this one.  I didn't recognise the name of the lovely lade who posted the photos, but it was a long time ago and we were only together for 6 weeks.

New Books

Yesterday was Sit & Stitch at Can Do Books.  Came home with two new books, an embroidery and a knitting book.  The embroidery one I have looked at before and really liked.  The knitting one is new and has some lovely stitch patterns.
