Cat and Mouse

What a great evening me and my daughter had last night, getting crafty, creating these little monsters.

My daughter loved the little mouse and cute little ears.  I am  a cat lover and fell in love with the cute little cat.

I brought myself a lot of felt last month from a market stall and knew it would come in handy for something.  My daughter went all out and brought her own sheet of grey for her mouse.

We sat for a couple of hours at the dining table with full consentration whilst our little animals grew and developed.  We have both used cute little black beads for eyes and have sewn on the detials using embroidery thread from my cross stitch days.. (ooo, cross stitch, now there is another plan for my 1000’s of ideas I have at the moment)

It was a lovely evening spent with my daughter and we are both happy with our creations.

now then…what to make next? I think I’m off to the wool shop this weekend. Time to try my hand at crochet



What to do next?

I seem to spend my spare minutes trawling the Internet looking for new ideas And inspiration. 

I seem to be flooding with enthusiasm to create more makeymakes. I am having a ‘crafty Wednesday’ with my daughter tomorrow night to make some fun felt animals we found on Pinterest. I am really looking forward to that, it will be fun!

I know I should plod on with my patchwork quilt but I’m keen to get stuck into something different. Inspired by a fellow blogger I’m keen to get some wool and start some crochet squares to see where that leads. Now, crochet requires my full attention and all my books out to get me through the simplest of patterns. I’ve found some fun examples of crochet squares online. One incorporates an owl pattern which interests me. 

but I think I maybe testing my limited skills with that! I may have a practice run with some spare wool tonight.

I’ve saved an interesting jar that once hosted a candle which I seem to have 100 different plans for of how to decorate or fill it.

I’m certainly enjoying my new love of creating!

So many ideas and not enough time….
