suprises in the post and ETSY

I recieved a lovely suprise in the post today from Angela at Bramble berries, (over there in my fav blog list). Angela sent me a great magazine and a cute hanger which says I LOVE PINK , she knows me so well lol. Angelas makes some really cute signs along with lots of other things and has some great ones for christmas, go and have a look at her great designs its well worth it.

ALSO i have re opened my etsy shop, i thought i would give it another try and have listed some things in there today so please have a peek at those too. x

Just had to have a go at the tutorial from MOONSTITCHES for her lovely owls, i was going to make it saying welcome but Ellie saw them first so i put her name on them and they are hung on the blackboard now. If you click the pic it becomes bigger and a little clearer.
Here is some placemats i have been making.

knitted dog coats and tea cozies...

Now that the cold nights are back again the knitting needles are clicking away on these dark nights, this is a dog coat that i have just finished with a cute little flower at the top.

Also, Claire from has kindly added my tea cozies to the handmade parade for christmas.
I am making them to order if anyone is interested just drop me a line. I will be adding them to the shop but not until early next year when i am hoping to have the time to make lots of these and other things to put in there.

Anyone for tea.........Giveaway

Have been busy making up this order for the last week and now have it finished and just waiting to be posted to its new owners. My orders are almost finished apart from a pencil roll and one which i am making for a lady who want it for a christmas presant to store make up brushes, ive not forgot you Angela and will be in touch with you soon. Also a bag for Katy at imaginger monkey. So last night sat down and made this tea cosy, although im not quite at 100 post yet.........
I liked it so much i have made another for a giveaway for my 100th post, (which im only a few of) Its for a four cup size tea pot, although mine is larger then that, i have got the cosy on but with a struggle so its just for show on mine.
