Just put the finishing touches to these two little adventurers


They’re for the raffle at Contraption tomorrow.

I have a few bits of jewelry I need to make for my course on Tuesday but other than that I need to take a short break from crafting as I have an essay to write for my OU course. It’s due next Thursday and as always I have barely even started making notes yet!

Latest makes

I’ve been doing a bit of knitting.


They’re based on the Rufus the Leprechaun pattern which I found online.  I changed the colours, lost the beard and added a skirt, wings and hair for the fairy and big ears and a pointy hat for the elf.

I had a terrible time with the scalloped edging to the fairy skirt, but I got there in the end by mingling together various different patterns I’d seen online.  It sort of works if you don’t look too closely.

Anyway, they are off to their new owners tonight (a young brother and sister I know through my part time job) so hopefully they will get lots of loving and no picking over the details.
