Who's been sleeping in my bed?



I don't think so boys! And yes. That is MY Pooh pillow.


Working on hankies for my dear aunts (each over 80). The pink and green are finished. The blue is in the works still. I love the thread holder daddy made me. It is perfect for my cotton threads. This is a small spool of Lisbeth 20. But it is great for the larger balls of bedspread cotton too. No more chasing about and fighting the pets for them. He used scrap wood, the base is walnut and the spindle is poplar.

These were good in theory. But making more will not be happening. Working the clay KILLED my poor arthritic hands. I molded the sheepies onto size 10 wooden needles. Baked them at 235 degrees for 30 minutes. Tiny glass seed beads for eyes. Fun to make and I have plenty more clay, they take such a small amount. But ohhhh my poor hands. Wonder who will get this pair?? :o) Perhaps a December birthday girl? We will have to see.

Oh those hankies are beautiful. Do you have a pattern for the edges? I would love to make some for my grand daughters. They are 6, 10 and 11. If you can just steer me in the right direction. Love the knitting needles. I have some bunnies that were picks. I knitted a little wash cloth together with them. Rally cute. Want to post about it some time. My firend said it would be a fun post..........

Thank you for signing up.

Blessings, Linda
