‘Knitting Grandma’ and the crafty clan!

Above is a cushion knitted by Jacob's Grandma - aka 'Knitting Grandma'. Yes, I know it has the name James embroidered on the hand-knitted square but in the interests of fairness and to assuage sibling rivalry, Grandma felt it was vital to treat both little boys to a hand-knitted greeting. To prolong the life of the greeting and to preserve the knitting I turned them into cushions - so snuggly and so brilliant for 'pimping' those bedrooms! I couldn't resist the fabric!

What Grandma did next.

Here are just a few of the chunky Arran knit cushion covers that Grandma has made for Mariery and James for their new interior design busign in Panama! Yes! Panama. Check them out at Mezclao Studio. Totally nailed this, Mummy - great vibrant colours and fantastic knitting. I have already put in my order for some more of the purple ones - lush!

This is the birthday present we found for my sister. Brilliant British Red Cross charity shop in Barton upon Humber - an Aladdin's Cave of great finds. A big thank you to all who donate here but also a bigger thank you to the volunteers who are always so helpful particularly when heaving about 'marble' hearths and insets - and a special thank you as this week is  Volunteers Week (1-7 June 2015)

A big thank you to all who donate here but also a bigger thank you to the volunteers who are always so helpful particularly when heaving about ‘marble’ hearths and insets – and a special thank you as this week is Volunteers Week (1-7 June 2015) To explain – in the spirit of being green and re-cycling and of course a good dollop of serendipity we found this complete fireplace set for the excellent price of ¬£90.00 (minus the pots, vase and bear in chair). They will be gracing my sister’s living room in a matter of weeks but are presently housed in our parents’ garage waiting delivery to Harrogate. To finish it off we have found a great little electric ‘wood-burner’ effect stove to stand on the hearth – look out for similar stove bargains in this line at Argos, B&Q and Homebase.
