One Down!

 Well here she is at last!!

One down, two to go. Knitting is marginally easier than crocheting at the moment and I have managed to finish my pink baby doll. Why is it that whenever we have a cleanup I can never find anything that I need?? With being out of action my bead knitting patterns got put away and now I can't find them. It's just as well my friend has the same patterns, I had to get her to scan the pattern for my baby and email it to me so I could get her finished. What would we do without our dear friends who step in and help when needed??

I'm Back!

Hi to everyone of you patient people that follow my blog!! Sorry I haven't posted for so long but I have been feeling a 'little' sorry for myself but that is all over now. I still can't really crochet for any length of time but with excersize and practice, I am hoping my hand and wrist will be back in action again soon. Can't wait really because I have my missed my crafts so much. I did manage a few rows of bead knitting yesterday but it was very slow going. I need to finish my baby dolls before Christmas arrives and I am having trouble believing that it's only two months away from today. Hmmm.. Have to get a wriggle on... The past few months have been very busy in other ways, three orchid shows to attend, one of which I helped organise and which went off really well. Below are the trophy's John and I won with our orchids this year, and some of the flowers. Hope you enjoy viewing them.  Bye for now, hope to have one of my dolls to show you really soon.

I am awaiting an award for this one
