Knitted Presents

My. It's been a while since I've posted. Been busy making Christmas presents and cards for friends and family.

I've found these beautiful leg warmers that I know my niece will love! I plan to knit two pairs. One cream and the other blue like in the photo

And these cute little mice. Aren't they adorable!!!
I plan to knit lots of these little fellas and make them in to tree decorations and greeting cards. They are designed by the magnificent Barbara Prime over at Fuzzy Thoughts. She has some great patterns for sale and they knit up beautifully and are easy to follow.

I've also made some more knitted monkeys. Three are ready for adoption and Santa will soon arrive to pick them up!

I hope you all have a smooth run up to Christmas and enjoy your day.

Keep warm this winter

Keep warm this winter by knitting these beautiful hat and scarf sets.
Drops is an amazing site. If you haven't heard of it before you really must take a look. All the patterns are free and you can buy the wool directly from them and I can highly recommend. Please take a peek!

Busy bee....

My the weather's been blustery here in Derbyshire. I've been busy working, knitting and having family get to-gethers. We've all had a great time. My nieces Birthday is just around the corner so she has a lovely surprize in stall!

I've been working on a new addition to teddybearscottage. A cheeky little monkey from Ala and Ela. He's lovely to knit and ever so straight forward. I've made about five so far and already have new homes.

Here are the newest additions.....

Our bags are packed and we're off on our adventures.
S'illot is on the Eastern coast of Mallorca, still quite traditional I'm told. Let's hope!

Hello everyone. My It's getting chilly here in the evenings. We've had some lovely sunshine in the day though. I've been able to spend some time in the garden. Pruning, cutting, sweeping and painting!

I've found a lovely shop while visiting Leamington Spa. "Joules" Ladies, Mens and Childrens Wear.

The most fabulous Wellies too!!!

They have a Mail Order Catalogue you can send for packed with colourful and well made clothing.

I've been working on a few more additions to Teddybearscottage. Four new Bunnies. Aasia, Aimee, Lily and Bobby. I've popped Aimee in to my Etsy Shop and the others are gifts to friends and family.



Lily and Bobby!

Howdy folks. How are you all. My we've had some rain here in Belper this week. Beautiful sunshine one minute then a downpour the next. I've been caught out a few times. My washing too! As well as working and drinking lots of tea I've found time to do some knitting. An order for Fi' at work and one for an old friend. I used three of my favourite yarns; R.Y.C Cashsoft Chunky, R.Y.C Alpaca Soft and Sirdar Luxury Soft Cotton.

I've also put my name down for the Cricket Match on Sunday so that will be fun! Hope you've had a lovely week.

Ruby was made for the Grand-Daughter of a very special friend

I really enjoyed making Ruby and her pretty dress. I'm sure she is well loved in her new home

Summer Memories..........

Hello there. The weather's been very changable here in England these last few weeks. Brilliant sunshine one day then pouring the next! This week we've had some lovely sunny periods especially late afternoon when the temperature's just right for snoozing in the garden while the dinner's cooking! Makes me feel all dreamy and I start to reminisce about the years adventures - Holidaying in Norfolk - Following the coast round from Sheringham to Lowestoft, through the broads and back again. It's a beautiful coast line and was very windy some days! but great fun.

Beautiful Beach-Huts adorning the coastline. The colours really make you feel like you're at the sea-side

Me steering the boat. Four mile an hour speed limit which I wasn't too happy about!

I love this photo. Everything about the broads appeals to me. Boats, fishing, swimming, beach huts, tea rooms and eating ice-cream

The boys having fun at Wells Next The sea. Quite a rare event they play together without falling out.........

Hello everyone. Hope you're all okay and managing to keep dry now all this rainy weather's on it's way out. We've had more than our fair share and the weeds in my garden have gone mad!!! I've been busy putting the final touches to my Etsy Shop. I aim to be up and running by Wednesday! Here's a few of the latest additions down at teddybearscottage

Hope you all manage to keep the children entertained during the holiday

Knitted Sheep

Hello everyone. I've been a busy bee this week. Still had time for a spot of knitting though! Found a super little pattern to knit the most adorable sheep. You can find the pattern here. I changed the yarn to Drops Eskimo to give a more chunky feel and used 4mm needles, then added a cute little flower to make her look pretty.
