Doggie sitting almost over!!!

Well my son and his family will be home any time so we will have to give Poppie back she has been a lovely little companion over this last week we will both miss her. It will be lovely to see my little darlings again though we have missed them.
Had a lovely stitching night last night with my friend Christine at Michelle's house (Mouse as some on the blogging world might know her). I was crocheting all night on my baby blanket ( I will post piccies over the weekend)
It's a lovely sunny day so we are spending time in the back garden, it's on two levels, mostly block paved and pots. It needs a lot of tender loving care spent on it so hopefully this weekend we may be able to give it a go. That's all for now, time to get busy again!! xx

My stitchy, crocheting dog sitting weekend

First I thought I would show you all my little dog for the week. She's my son's little dog, she's called Poppy and is a Norfolk Terrier. We are looking after her this week as they have gone on holiday and me and Richard have decided we are doing a 'fair swap' when they get back, the dog for the Grand-children!! (hehe) as Poppy is so much better behaved and does everything you tell her. (Don't worry Christian, Chloe and Jessica Grandma's only joking!!!
Below Poppy's picture is what I've been up to, a bit of crocheting, the coloured one is going to be a baby's little blanket it's done in Larksfoot stitch where you pick up on the row below. The other is a good old granny square, not sure what it may become. I've well and truly got the crocheting bug. I found some fantastic tutorials by the crochet geek on You Tube, she explains really well and there is loads of patterns to choose from.
And finally a little bit more of the secret stitching............any more ideas???
Well I'm off now to kit up a new start, it's going to be a small Christmas ornament from last years American mag I's never too early to make a start. Happy stitching  xx Bev

Guess what I'm stitching??

Hi, well I've just had a stitchy night here at mine with my lovely friends Kath ,Michelle and Christine. There's never a lot of stitching done really but lots of chatting, laughing and of course a bun!! Tonight's delight was chocolate muffins made today by my two Grand-daughters.

Well the blogging world is quite new to me and I am eager to get new followers so what I thought I would do is have a little competition and I will send a surprise stitching package to the winner. Sooooo  guess what I am stitching?? xx Bev

I feel a stitchy weekend comin up!!!

Well it's the Bank Holiday weekend and I've decided to just have a 'stitchy time'. I have a WIP for a leaving present for my Deputy Head at school who is leaving in the summer. Our school emblem is an owl so I thought this was apt, it's a lovely little design from Jardin Prive.

I've also been looking through my finished pieces because I never get around to doing anything with them unless it's something for a swap soooooooo  time to do something about it!!

Below are some of my crochet bits and pieces, I made a 'New Year Resolution' to myself to learn a new craft and here's my achievements so far- the blanket is going to be a baby blanket, just treble crochet so quite easy. My work seems to go out of shape a bit....any advice on what to do would be gratefully received.
