Happy Valentine’s


I’ve been in bed with the flu for a few days, but today I was at least well enough to crochet.



Little red ridinghood


Here’s one of my Christmas gifts that were actually delivered on time. Only there’s two buttons still missing, that I’ve meant to sew on.

The adorable reciever is my nephew and his mom got a matching night gown.

Can’t help myself


I found this stray machine left to itself near a garbage station. I couldn’t resist it’s pleading eyes and took it home. A bit cocky with my previous experience of fixing a broken machine I thought maybe I could save this one as well?

After taking it apart, I’d say I can. It’s in good shape, but a lot of pieces are missing, such as the bobbin case, one of the gears, the pedal and the attatchement pieces for the needle and the foot. Buying all that new is more than I can afford at the moment, so I’ll just keep it for a while. Maybe I’ll find another one, and build them together to one.

Late Santa


I continue to finish Christmas presents. This is another use of the reflective thread yarn. Knitted this time.
