What a Fabulous Idea!

What a wonderful idea to personalise those ugly zimmer frames for users so that they enjoy using them.

Felted Pom Pom Bunny

Hi all, I decided to try my hand at a felted pom pom bunny. I'd seen the tutorial on YouTube at https://blog.pommaker.com/how-to-make-a-bunny-pom-pom/ when browsing. It's a great little tutorial)

I knew that getting the face shape right was going to be a challenge. However, I decided to give it a go. I am pleased with my very first attempt. The ears are needle felted.
Great fun and so quick to make!
Anyone else tried this technique?

Keeping out of Mischief

Hi all, I've been having problems with Blogger lately. However, since my broken hand is now improved, I am back to my crafts. 
I am also saving Barbie-style dolls from landfill by giving them makeovers for our local charity shop. Hope you are all well and keeping busy.

Happy 2018

Hi all, My hand is healing and I'm getting some movement back, though the finger is slightly wonky and may need pinning, which would set me back to square one, again.

I don't believe in new years resolutions as a rule, but since I always manage to start several projects one after another before the others are completed; which then makes me fretful and cluttered, I have decided to make one this year.

You've probably guessed it. I'm going to finish all of my WIP's or UFP's before I start anything else and from now on I shall only work on one or maybe two things (e.g. one crochet and one knitting project) at a time.

I already feel calmer having made this resolve. 

How about you?
