 Spot the difference.
Really loved this card sent to Tom for Fathers day.

I put this picture on Face book but as a lot of bloggers would not have seen it I have posted it here.

There must be an appropriate caption, but I can't think of one, can you ?

I just love it..

See the black lump in the sink.

It's Rupert having a ponder, he loves to just sit in the sink and relax, who knows what he's thinking about.

  ' Ruppppeeeeeee ' 

Mummy, I was just having a good ponder then, now I've lost the thread...

New picture started. Mother and Child

I've crawled out from under my stone and decided to make another scrumble type picture.
For the last couple of months I seem to have lost my get up and go and have just been bimbling about doing  not a lot.

I just didn't seem to think that anyone would be interested in the same old thing such as the Bijou Garden and Mr.T's crochet, but anyway here I am and yes, it will be more of the same.

The new picture will be called 'Mother and Child' and I have made a start on some bits.

 This will be the centre piece, I've printed it out onto fabric.

A new idea, couple of embroidered scraps to squeeze in somewhere.

Started to make some crochet shapes.
I intend the main colours to be creams and white with maybe a bit of pale blue and pink , we'll see.

And as its about love I made a little felt heart embellished with beads and lace.

Help with sleeping

Found this in the paper today, thought it might be of help to all of you who have trouble sleeping. lol

Thursday, 7 April 2016


When we redecorated our Lounge we bought the two large wicker chairs to put in the window so that we could do our crochet, read etc in the light.
We didn't bargain on the fact that we would not be able to use them that often, although we should have known.
Everytime we go in to sit down they are occupied but a couple of furry friends and being the 
 complete softies that we are we don't like to move them.

It occured to us that we should maybe take a leaf out of the Germans book, those that go on holiday it the various resorts, and throw a couple towels over the chairs to reserve them. ha ha
Do you think this might work? lol.  Probably not.

This morning we decided to spend the morning doing a bit of crochet and luckily both chairs were free.
   Tom has just started and Elephant and I am still trying to finish my 'Pink Champagne' scrumble.

 As he's working with grey the magnifier has come out of the closet, but it works a treat.

 Here's the Elephant that he's just starting and below is Snoopy just completed

I should also mention that the plastic that we pinned around the sofa on the 14th Dec works a treat and the cats have not attempted to claw it.

I finally finished the basic background of the 'Pink Champagne' Scrumble picture.
I now have to do the embellishments.
Still more gold grapes to make and beads etc to add.
This is the best bit.
