Just for Mary ...

Hi fellow tweakers,

My dear Auntie Mary is sadly suffering from small cell lung cancer. When she recently had surgery she met a nurse, who had trouble knitting up a teddy bear. She offered to help and I completed it for her, check this out ..

Cute or what!!

It is made from Wendy Shimmer using Wendy pattern no. 5068.

I have also been getting ready for Easter in my house. For years I have promised myself a basket full of eggs, (and for once not the chocolate variety)!!

I have used polystyrene egg shapes and just crocheted around them using htr(hdc) oddments of yarn, and a few beads sewn on.

From top left:
  • a boucle multi base colour black (dk weight)
  • a fluffy fuchia oddment (dk weight)
  • a Twilleys goldfingering in green
  • a soft pastel stripy effort in dk
  • a cerise pink with pale pink and white stripes embroidered in chain stitch (dk weight)
  • a lively lemon dk with clear beads randomly sewn on (dk weight)
  • a soft lime with green long beads randomly sewn on (dk weight)
and last but not least, a little number in Kidsilk Haze, with spikey stripes.

I am now off work for a whole nine days!!!!!! As I have been doing a college course I have homework to do. I also want to knit and crochet all the time.

Catch you all soon with more finished projects, (hopefully).
Love Cathy xx
