Tea time in Fintry, Scotland

Snow outside, tea and buns inside, roaring log fire, a little bit of knitting and baby granddaughter over to visit. How lovely.

What an outfit!

Found this pattern sent down by Hellie ages ago and couldn't resist sharing it with you. I think we all need an outfit like this for winter.

Work in progress

Linda working on embellishment for felted crochet hook case, searching for vintage flower buttons. We'll feature the finished piece when she's finished sewing......

Budgie cushions

We nearly couldn't do this! We found this this amazing, beautifully embroidered tablecloth on our trip to Fintry, Scotland back in November. We finally plucked up the courage to cut it and now have four gorgeous cushions - two each!

Spring is in the air

Just completed Jolie the lamb - inspired by the button tin.

Knit and Chat

We had a lovely Knit and Chat this morning. Much laughter and a little bit of knitting. From left to right; Debbie, Jo, Linda, Carolyn and Dany. Hellie joined us from afar, knitting by the fireside in Fintry. How cosy!
