Then Bunty with its cut out dressing doll on the back!
Then Jackie ... with the gorgeous David Essex on the cover!
Then there were grown-up magazines, reflecting the interests of the time; fashion, health, travel, photography etc. etc. Now its knitting, cross-stitch, baking and sewing.
I have a file of projects saved I want to do .... 3 files so far! Anyway excuse the trip down memory lane ... and now to some current crafting.
Thanks Gillian and Jilly for the knititng encouragement, much apprectiated. I thought I would pop-in an honest photo to show the problem, and this is a bit I took back twice. I think I've worked out that part of the problem is the way I've been passing the wool at the back so that it's shown some colour on the right side
I think with some blocking and some more stitches I can improve it a bit. But as I've continued I've liked it much better ... glad I didn't give up.
Now I'm up to the stripey collar, which is really big!
My Farmer's wife topper is finished
And now I'm on to the quilting. I'm just doing a simple in-the-ditch quilt, which means just going down the seams. However, it's not quite so simple where you haven't got completely straight seams! Just be complete for next weekend.
What a wondeful day it has been today - glorious sunshine and one of those walks where I can't quite believe how lucky I am to live with these views all around me.
Not much going on in my garden except that my acer is at its best at the moment ... beautiful.
Bye from a sunny Cumbria for another week. Hope you have a great week with lots to smile about.
