Fastest jumper ever!

You won’t see much knitting on this blog, because most of my knitting projects lie unfinished in a variety of handmade bags.

But I actually knitted this so fast I didn’t have time to get bored!!

I also did not have a pattern so I am lucky that it actually fits.

I used 3 strands of yarn – the red and grey were double knitting and the purple is chunky – on 15mm needles.
(Maybe I will write the pattern up on my next post; it’s very simple – just garter stitch and ladder stitch with no shaping. Anyone who could knit could probably work it out for themselves!)

Christmas is coming!

Listed my first Christmassy offering in my Folksy shop today.

Little drawstring bags (oh, how I love a drawstring bag!!) to hang on your tree with little surprises inside.

You can buy them here in a handy pack of 6.

A tatty lampshade transformed!

I bought 2 slightly bashed up lamps second hand. They cost me £3 for the pair.

I quite liked the bases so my plan was to just buy some new shades.

Then my crafty side woke up, and whispered “pva” in my ear.

There was a Spongebob magazine discarded on the side…

And hey presto!

One decoupaged Spongebob lampshade – still a bit damp in the picture to be honest. I’m hoping it will dewrinkle a bit when it’s dry.

Here it is, sitting on the bureau next to my Mauritian dodos and a piccy of the kids.

Now, what to stick on the other one…
