And now to begin...

After regretting the amount of colour changes that needed so many ends to be sewn in, the real work of tying all the bubbles began- now two weeks and 775 marbles later, my very long scarf is ready for the dye pot!!

Keeping Easter eggs cosy

I have some small people coming to visit for Easter- so instead of supplying them with a mountain of chocolate- I turned to my back catalogue of crafty ideas and found a 1973 copy of Busy Needles Magazine -"What to make and how to make it" - with these felt chicken egg cosies. Although I had to hand sew everything as I didn't have double sided interfacing and my sewing machine is being temperamental. They do sit nicely on their egg cups even if the egg is chocolate one!
