In January, while I was in England, I kept busy doing a bit of crocheting.
I had purchased a couple of balls of yarn from Fabricland with the idea of making the new twins something.
Luckily, there were two different balls of yarn.
I don't often crochet but I don't mind doing it.
These are the finished items - a ball of yarn, directions and a soft, stuffed head.
I thought this was interesting.
It's a little hand impression on a soft, thick blanket. It was of one of the twins in England.
I saw this on the way to the park. It's a hanging basket of flowers - in January.
Tomorrow is Canada Day and instead of wearing the traditional red and white, a lot of people will be wearing orange to "honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada." My middle daughter got an orange t-shirt from a friend of hers but it was a large size. She brought it over along with a book that has instructions on 101 ways to transform a t-shirt.
Here's her sister wearing the t-shirt after I transformed it. I just cut off a large chunk from the hem, sewed it so it's thinner and then gathered the top part. I sewed the two pieces together and voila, an easy fix.
There were actually two. I asked my eldest daughter, who lives in British Columbia in an area where there are a lot of mule deer, if she wanted them.
They need to be framed and the buck actually should be cleaned first. I still have another 'oldie' that I made but it's quite slanted. It's a couple of pandas and I suppose I could finish it and give it to one of my grandchildren.
