My Weekend

I had a very busy weekend which included doing some tapestry and visiting Birmingham & Stafford with the other half. I found this hand knitted cover in a charity shop that will be gracing my studio hot water bottle in preparation for winter (today is the summer solstice, so the winter evenings will gradually be drawing in from now on!).

Out Foxed!

Well, here are my latest offerings, you're probably thinking - an elephant and a penguin???. Alas, I wasn't aiming for either of those wonderful creatures, no infact I've begun the slow (but rewarding) process of creating a pattern for a fox hopefully. There's probably a better way of doing this than my trial and error method, but I haven't come across it yet!I quite like urban foxes, I know they get bad press, but so do wild bears and mad dogs (and a few bothersome people for that matter!) - It hasn't stopped me from liking some of them! So this is my current project, to create a pattern I'm happy with because I've got some gorgeous fabric waiting to be used.....

48 Bus Watch

Check out these strides, spotted on the No 48 bus today. I can't even begin to imagine how you'd create those tiny denim heart scrolls - Go Lady Denim go!
