Hi Cannon 

I finally worked out how to post pictures here so here is my Moon Hare that I worked on while DH was in hospital. Although I have worked on quite large pieces for a while, this one definitely took my concentration (about 90 colours in it!) I bought a tabletop daylight lamp from Amazon which helped a lot during those winter months too! 

Just home from another clinic appointment (will post more in a separate thread) but treated myself to a skein of DK and some DP needles to try knitting a knocker over the weekend!

Take care

Thanks taralou. It is hung beside our bed, so that I can look at it every morning and evening. It reminds me that I have the strength to get through most things - so sorry it won't be finding it's way to your wall soon! xx

Hi Tigermum, what a lovely picture, is it cross stitch or tapestry, it must have taken hours of work. I am currently doing a cross stitch of garden birds and am nearly there. It definately takes your mind off any troubles. Well done love it.

Thanks grannylara. It is cross stitched. I started it just before Christmas 2016 and finished it in about 6 months. It was what kept me sane while DH was in hospital for 12 weeks!

One talented lady Tigermum. So pleased you get to see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I love the colours too. Have you any plans to do anything similar?

What lovely pics of your beautiful creations to all you clever crafters.

and adding a Whoop Whoop for knitted knockers... I love mine but my mom was getting embarrassed as I also kept whipping them out to show people regardless of where I am.

I actually started crocheting little animals as the lovely lady who sent me my KKs sent a bag of extra stuffing which I haven't needed and being a crafter I couldn't see it go to waste so thought I'd put it to good use.  Its done me good as have found it really relaxing.

So anybody knitting knockers please be assured they go to loving homes and are very much appreciated xx

Roar by Katy Perry is keeping me sane, try belting it out the neighbours may complain but boy does it feel good to ROAR!!

Hi  I'm interested that you posted off a photo to get a chart. Can you say where to? Oh and how much did it cost? 

I made a chart a few months back from a program on the Internet but it wasn't easy and I had a fair bit of help from the home help desk. Also, it was from a colouring book so I had to colour it in first as the black lines didn't show up. I made it for a friend and she's done about half of it as a tapestry (in her choice of colour). I'm not sure I'd do it again as it's really tough so would love to get someone else to do it. This is the final picture. I can't load the graph version as it's the wrong kind of file.

Tigermum, I love cross stitch, my house has loads on the walls, many are really large, but I love doing them, All my grandchildren have birth samplers, and have done loads for friends, but my passion is the old fashion ladies in beautiful, flowing dresses, which have tiny beads as well as cross stitch, i can forget about the world around me when I am doing them. will post a picture of the birds when when I finish it.

these are a couple of the ladies I have done.

Have a nice day, love and hugs, Jenny xxx

Oh they are beautiful. I had the Noel Celtic lady but gave it to someone. I love the Celtic round pattern as well.
I have a hospital appointment tomorrow and if it is good news then I’ve promised myself I will buy the Scheepjes Hygge kit as a treat. I’ve been umming and erring over it for a couple of weeks now. I’ve also told myself I will buy some really nice knitting needles and yarn to make some knockers. Read the pattern last night and it looks quite easy.

Have a lovely day all.

Thanks Cannon. I'll do a bit of searching for it. It's a great idea. 

Kumihimo - love those patterns. Might have to copy you.
