    I've never been a knitter and find knitted clothes make me itchy anyway but your pocket dolls and trews look like fun.   I have taken to knitting scarves in winter for OH and Possum, just for something to do when watching TV since my eyesight is no longer good enough for small gauge cross stitch.   

    OH is a tiger (Chinese horoscope) so, many years ago I did him this

    He's from Worcester so I did this

    My patchwork projects started as a quilt for our bedroom using the Contrary Wife block but I couldn't get the points to match so took myself off to classes to learn the trick and there I've been required to different blocks to practise piecing - some are here along with one of the blue place mats, a red and cream block for a cushion cover and a crafty fabric picture of irises.

    I have another 4 of the pinkish blocks to do to make a wall hanging - and this month's class project is reverse appliqué which I can do by machine.  I'll let you know how that works out.

    imageI love those trousers, a new fashion for gardeners, made me smile.

    Beautiful knitting and cross stitch, and  I wish I could paint like that.

    I do try to do something when I'm sort of watching the TV

    I make bark pictures, collect it from the trees in the garden and cut it out to make pictures, it keeps me amused.
