It’s winter in the UK so this year I’m sending slippers to warm some tootsie’s and a little beanie. Just a few pics to remind me of what I’ve been up to. Actually the weather here in NZ hasn’t been that great, lots of rain and it’s a bit chilly today so might have to make something warming for lunch, maybe leek & potato soup as I have some cooked potato’s & the leek.

Anyway back to the slippers, made 7 pairs different colours so the girls can choose what they would like and the black beanie was a request. Plus couldn’t resist including a crochet gingerbread man for the tree and a pair of red & green Christmas slippers for Mrs Clause. I know after a hard day making Christmas dinner & looking after everyone she will be ready to put her feet up with a glass of wine and relax.

Spider man is quite popular with the little grandson as well as all the other super heroes, so I crochet him a spidey hat for this winter.

When  one of the  ” bigger  Spider man ” fans saw it he had to have one too.

Just finished making a couple of  fairy homes to sit on a desk, well nearly finished just need to give them a coat of sealer. Not sure if these will go on my New Zealand Felt shop or they will be snapped up beforehand or given as gifts.

I am tempted to keep these but I have a good stash of driftwood and bits and pieces from the beach to make some more. Trouble is my dining table is so messy for days while I am making them. Could really do with my own space in a shed or the garage, although the hubs isn’t too pleased with the growing stack of beach finds taking up his garage space.

Can’t go for a walk anywhere without bringing something home for a craft project.

I have been busy trying out something I have wanted to make for a long time. Collecting branches, seed pods, sticks, lichen and numerous treasures from our local beach, park, and our garden over the last year or so. Luckily I have a couple of grandchildren to gift them to before the garden is taken over with hobbit & fairy homes, but I did manage to keep one just for me ;-D
