Finished Apron Dress

I loved making this one as it was such a lovely table cloth, they are getting harder to find .If I can bring my self to part with this one it will go on folksy this week.

Knitted room names.

These are easy peasy when you have knitted the length you want leave it on the needles and push the other one along side. we made them to hang on the bedroom can do the name in running stich.

New Travelling project bags

I have managed to make up some new travelling woollberries project bags this weekend as my order of fabric/printing paints arrived in time. They are great for grabbing your current project and much better than pulling out your wool from a carrier bag. I spent ages trying to up load them on folksy today I had lots of goes and it just wasn't playing ball.So I will tell you guys about then in stead. They are 17cm wide and 39ish long. with a draw string and made from 100% cotton. They cost £7 each.

Travelling Woolberries Friday Woolly Goodness

Now on every Friday (expect school holidays) . Our Woolberries Knit Cafe in Sidmouth is a great success . Thank you to all you lovely ladies that come you make it a fabtastic morning.

Posy Picture

After making the little posy badge. Thought I might try making one on a larger scale. Using a large tapestry wooden ring. First paint it then score some groves at the top to help the wool spread evenly. The flowers were made by doing big French knots ,but you may no a better way .Have fun having a go.

Base on a 1940 style badge I found, it was made in silks but I,ve used wool.To make your self one of these first find a metal curtin ring. wrap the wool around the edges and up and down for the flower stems the flowers are made by doing little french knots. sew a badge pin on the back.. Check out this great blog to see her collection of wartime Brooches ' 1940s style for you'
