Hello everyone :) Sigh spring with its promise of warmth seems to have deserted us here in Ireland  it has turned very cold with lots of very cold wet rain :(  lol less than two weeks ago young people were out in tee-shirts I bet winter coats have been taken back out of cupboards : D.
I was very lucky and won some beautiful fabric and lace on Connie's giveaway. I Know I will find a use for these :) Conny has a wonderful blog with more giveaways and lots of great tutorials.

The fabric is so soft and pretty. I love the blue lace. 
Thank you very much Conny I am very happy with my wonderful prize.
I have been doing some more knitting lately it is something I am enjoying and I believe that I am getting better at it : D here is a few samples of my knitting.

Here it is on one of my dolls.

My first tiny booties.

This last one is crochet this I done from looking at pictures as for some reason I can not follow a crochet pattern lol believe me I have tried many times.

I hope you like :)
Progress on my house is going very slowly. I am doing the children's bedroom. Twins will own this room a boy and girl. I hope to have some pictures soon.
Thank you all for being here and for all the much appreciated comments.
Have a wonderful week.
Warm Hugs to all my Friends.

Jane Chérie said...

Knitting in such a small size must be so challenging! I don't know how you can do it! The pink dress is my favorite (I am partial to pink!) but your other creations are very beautiful too! Good luck with the dollhouse. It's been slow on my side too and we got cold weather in between warm days. What a strange winter/spring!

Hannah said...
