Disappearing NIne-Patch

These colours are lovely, I'm just not sure how to lay them out, random or more organised? Do I add sashing to make parts of it stand out? Also not sure what I'm going to do with this one when its done, I was thinking of it going to project night night (see Quilted Cupcake's blg for details) So much to decide, but having fun putting it together.

Ebay Selling on iPhone

Having had bids and lots of watchers on the things I've put on this app, I thought I'd have a go at putting something I had made on it. I put it on and by the time I had made toast and tea I had one watcher, all of 10 minutes. Hurray. This might be the only interest I have mind you.

Jacob's Ladder

This is the Jacob's Ladder block I made for the Underground Railroad BOM on Popular Patchwork. The photo doesn't do the colours justice. Easy to put together, let's hope the rest of the blocks are as easy.

The Pile Grows and Grows

Don't they look lovely all in a pile. I love knitting socks and I love knitted socks. Just as well really.

Pot Holders

It took me all of two hours to make these pot holders for my mother in law's birthday. I liked the rick rack best but only had enough to make one, hence the lace. I think they are very pretty.

The Next Pair!

The crocosmia inspired me, so I took a picture of the current socks on the needles with this yarn. Also King Cole ZigZag.

Lavender Socks not Bags.

I did originally buy this yarn to make lavender bags for Christmas presents. Changed my mind though and made this lovely pair of socks. The yarn is King Cole Zig Zag and knits up into a nice soft knit. On washing I'm sure they will get even softer. I couldn't resist using the garden as a background to the picture and these crocosmia fitted the bill perfectly. Have I said before how much I love handknitted socks?

After weeks and weeks of hanging a niger seed feeder out to attract goldfinches they eventually found it. We have had to buy a bigger feeder with more ports to keep the six or seven we frequently now get happy. This picture shows only 3, they are so hard to photograph as they are really twitchy and fly off at the slightest thing. I'll keep trying to get a full feeder photographed. These are lovely little birds, they don't squabble over the feeder, they don't bother other birds and their song is soft and warbling, you need to listen carefully to hear it. I'm glad they visit us.
