Little charity shop finds from the past few weeks

Here are some little treasures I picked up in the localy charity shops.
We do have soooo many, quite a few are local based charity shops others are the well known 'high st' ones.
All have different things on offer, some mainly clothes and books but the little independant ones usually have the things I love.
Two balls of debbie bliss wool for 50p,..yes 25p a ball.
The two little ornaments which still have the makers name on stickers underneath which is Simico....no idea where these were made but they are so lovely....one is my Son and one my Daughter... daft arent I?? I.love these so much even though the hair colours on them don't represent the colours of my childrens hair!

I live near the town centre so its quite easy to pop into the shops, also working shifts means that I can have a mooch in the morning before I go to work on a late shift or after when I'm on early shifts.
I'll post some more bits and bobs another day! xxx
Having a cool week off work so off to have some soup to warm me up!

Little granny crochet brooch

I am just a little bit proud of this little brooch. It was soooo simply to make. Little granny square background with a loopy flower and button sewn on top. Makes a change from the usual blankets xxx

Ooops started a granny circle crochet cushion yesterday.
It was going so well then after the 6th row it started to go all so wrong.

Oh well never mind my little doll now has a mob cap....try not to waste anything...think I know where I went wrong.....ever decreasing circles maybe??
Big match on tv soon....c'mon u reds!!! My big boy is there right now

Kool Kotton

Went to Manchester on Saturday to purchase some of the lovely Kool Kotton that Abakan sell. Great price and it is so lovely to crochet with. I'd also like to knit some buntings for my caravan with it. May just take that when we next visit Anglesey....very soon.

I take quite a lot of photos on my I phone even though I have a pretty damn good camera.
I'm giving it a go on here. Uploaded for you to see some of the Kool Kotton.
Off to work shortly but before I go I'm going to have a go at Heathers http://www.littletinbird.co.uk/ little granny circles
I quite simply love this blog
Also do visit Orans place to see her completed granny stripe blanket....its so lush!
 xx Later xx

Granny Stripes go a little crazy!

Oh how long is it since a wrote my first post in blog land......way to long.

I've been having gently little reminders from Nicola and then I came along a lovely blog called Orans place http://oran.typepad.com/which gave me the push to start again.....thanks Oran

Ok big thanks first to the lovely Lucy from Attic 24 for sharing this funky granny stripe. I thought mmmm what could I do with that. I bought some yarns last week and thought yes I'll do another blanket for the caravan.....but then I had another thought......I've got a lovely little Lloyd Loom box that needs TLC. I'm going to granny stripe that me thinks. However the granny stripe is way too long for that.

I think what I will do is continue with completing this blanket and pick out some colours maybe just 3 colours to stripe it up!

The yarn is only £1.09 a ball for 100g so it really is a bargain ( just what I loveeeeeeee)

Just popped onto to sort out why on earth my pics only went to the top of the post.....sorted that one out but its left a huge gap underneath this text.
I'm still learning..........

First post in blogland.

Dear all
Well here is my first post.
I'm off work this week and thought this would be the right time to start my venture as a contributor in blogland.

The picture I have uploaded is a wall cabinet that my Husband fetched home for me. I reckon he could see the potential in it as it had just been thrown in a skip by its previous owners. (He also brought two other wooden wall cabinets needing tlc)
Well I am loving it now and after lots of TLC by Mr B it now has a new home on my wall!
The little handmade bird was handcrafted by a very talented lady who I work with.
Nicola you really should come into blogland and share your talents.

The pattern for the bird is from Attic 24 who provides a very clear and concise tutorial for this, thanks Lucy for sharing everything you do!

About Me

My photo
Hello and thanks for visiting me. I'm Heather and this is all so new to me. I am a big big fan of other peoples blogs. I love all things quirky and different in my life and my home, mixing the vintage and the new together. Having mastered the basics of crochet mainly through the internet and a lovely lady who had the time to sit down and show me just how it was done I am now quite addicted. However I need to learn how to stop skipping from one project to another! I'll share my 'projects' with you and my love of vintage crochet and knitting patterns that I hope to upload onto here. I am also quite a big fan of charity shops and will share my little finds with you too. Lots of blogs have inspired me to do one of my own I hope you can come back and have a sneaky peek at 'whats occuring' in my life! Heather xxx
