This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Well here is my first effort at making a hat. Well not exactly my first but first in a very very long time. This went quite quickly concidering my limited time.

Here is the finished product on the victim.

....and wearing it proudly as he helps Granddad (Dah as he calls him) rake leaves. He is using a less dangerous weapon, a broom.


I am making a scarf with the left over yarn and will post that when completed.
This hat was so simple it is 60 stitches on size 7mm needles. I just knitted plain until it reached the right length for Tristen.
I have started one on a loom to see what is easier and quicker but I think I already know that the knitting is quicker for me so far.


I finally got Tristens scarf done to match his hat. Now to start on Raylene's hat. Why is it I always take his picture when his face is dirty? This was right after lunch of spaggetti and meatballs and I see he is wearing some on his cute little nose.


  1. great autumn colors. i just learned to knit last winter and went crazy knitting hats and scarves for everyone. i have not tried the loom. it seems more complicated...


Please leave a comment I love to hear from you
