What You Doing Wednesday Week 46

Good morning everyone!
Hope your week is going well.

We might get snow again.
Last time they said we weren't getting snow it did.
Then they said we were and we didn't.
We'll just have to wait and see.
I hope it doesn't snow too much
as little Red is meant to be going to granny & grandads.

As you might of guessed Little Red is
off school for half term.

This has been quite an exciting week
for crocheting.
I've still been making my penguins.
Still not finished!
I've got another 9 bodies to go and then it's just a case of 
putting all 35 together :-(

Now the exciting part is I decided to give
myself a few days break from the penguins.

I decided to try out the Craftsy Course:
the instructor is:
Linda Permann

I am loving this course!!!
You learn how to make a beautiful baby cardigan.
As you move along the course you
learn all of Linda's hints and tips
as well as the how to make the cardigan.
I've been crocheting for nearly 2 years
& I have learnt sooooo much!
I have already purchased Linda's 
other course:

Here is my cardigan so far:
I've got to finish sewing it together
and then put the edging and buttons on.
I am loving making it!

I am also making a set
of baby overalls (dungarees) to match:
I haven't got as far on these
I am using a Cathyren pattern that I purchased. 

Now to some even more exciting news!
There is a new site/shop just opened.
It isn't crochet but it's really exciting.
Please Pop over and take a look:

Storybook Felts

is run by my best friend Melissa
I am sure it's going to be a huge success!!!!

I am still reading my books.
I am up to about chapter 9 of sherlock holmes
on the audio book.
I'm really enjoying relaxing, listening and crocheting
at the same time :-)
And it's free

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

The books are even better than the series.

Now it's your turn to share what you are doing.
It doesn't have to be crochet, anything you are making
is perfect.

  6. Vicki,
    Thanks. I am glad the penguins are finished. I never want to make another one!

  7. Tawnee,
    They took me longer than I was expecting but glad it's all out the way. I just hope the children like them now.

  8. Sandy,
    I've made the penguins for my sons class at school. They are following a book on a baby penguin. They are also learning about Antarctica & the animals that live there. One of his teachers asked if I could make some animals for their display. I made a seal and a parent penguin and a baby penguin. She loved them that much she wanted to know if I could make one for each child (including the teachers kids etc). 35 penguins done and dusted and delivered. I hope they like them.


I hope you enjoy the blog!
Thank you ever so much for commenting!
I love reading everything you put and I will try and reply but it just depends on my health.
Thanks Sue
