There was Lorraine and Lorraine(Loz).
The following photos show lots of people stitching which is why I wonder why I didn't finish a single project. Could be something to do with I talk too much.

Peta brought a friend with her the mother had been killed by a car and she was feeding this little fellow with a bottle she was no trouble at all when not having a bottle she was happy to hang around in a pillow case.

Trish's husband he wanted me to make sure I got the T shirt in.

It was a great weekend now all I have to do is finish off what I started.

Some would call it madness

and at times I would have agreed but now it is finished it was all worth it.

This is what I made for Charlotte.
Taken in sections because it is the length of a single bed.

Knitted rabbit and bag to go with it.

New knitting bag

I have caught the knitting bug after finishing Bailey the bear and stalking this lovely Blog. I bought Julie's little pattern here, I ordered the Debbie Bliss Knitted toys book from Fishpond and started playing. This is what I finished up with after a few attempts. I thank Julie for all the inspiration behind this little rabbit. I have tried to buy one of her originals but never seem to have fast enough fingers when they go up for sale.

Not happy with that......... I have had this bag in my head for a while so decided I needed a knitting bag to go with my little rabbit.

It has lots of room inside for all your bit and pieces. If your not a knitter then you can fill it with all your sewing stuff.

One side has a button pocket.

I am in the process of writing a pattern for the bag so when I have it just right I will have a give away.
