my thoughts on all sorts of creative things

Design Museum

Pictures from my second visit to the new Design Museum in Kensington, London.




I bought this lovely 2-in-1 dolly from a craft fair two years ago. Now, when she visits, my granddaughter enjoys playing with her.


Group work

I teach handcrafts and these items were finished recently by the group.


The Faraday Museum

Last week I went to The Faraday Museum. It was interesting and quiet place. The old library room is so nice.


Crochet squares

Last year I made 1000 crochet squares. I have recently started to join them together and this is my progress so far.


400th post

This is my 400th post. I am so happy about that! My daughter always encourages me to post on here and on Instagram about all things that I like the look of! Thanks for everyone who ;likes and comments on my posts.


Knitted blanket

In my last post I mentioned my colleague, who is partially blind. Last week she asked me if I can mend this blanket, which is full of holes. This blanket belongs to her father – he is 90 years old and still uses it. His grandmother made it to for him!! I took it home and I stitched all the holes and the seams. I looked at the knitting and the pattern his grandmother used. It was mitered knitting squares. The wool is so soft and all made from the same kind of wool. It is seven by ten squares, each square around measures around 5 inches. Then she knitted the stripes around it.
