We are rich only through what we give,
and poor only through what we refuse.
- Anne Sophie Swetchine, The Writings of Madame Swetchine.
I'm just doing a quick trot through blog land, thought I'd stop and show you my latest completed projects. I was looking through an edition of Handmade and came across these cute little cats.
There is a pattern for cats and kittens, so I've made the cat size 5 inches high. Simple, easy and very effective. I like the simplicity of the finished product. Kids love simple. The edition I found this pattern in is Vol 28 No. 7 Handmade Christmas gift-giving.
Now for my little ladybird friend, I'm sorry but there is no pattern for this girl. I just did a rough shape and went with it. I have used goggle eyes, and a piece of left over black for the antennae. I have appliqued the black spots on to the red material. It will bring joy to some child.
At the night time I have been knitting a koala and have almost finished it. As I am on holidays, I am planning to do as much craft work as I can, having teenage boys right now has given me the opportunity to have some 'me' time. I enjoy their company too though. I am really waiting for the big man in a red suit to visit. Pixie and I are both excited to see the look on the boys faces when they open their gifts.
On Saturday Pixie and I are planning a quick trip out the metro area. I will have him to annoy all the way there and back. What fun!! Have a great day.
