You couldn't say centimetreing along, could you? Things are quiet here at the moment - no puppet orders, no preparation for craft in the retirement home - so I thought I'd take the opportunity to make progress on my blanket. It can take up to an hour to complete one side of my giant square, depending on the stitch, so progress in terms of depth is slow.

In the run up to Christmas, the bath puppets are finding homes as fast as I can make them. The orange giraffe left the same day as the pink one. I made a monkey and a crocodile as gifts. Then came Ruth's gang - monkey, crocodile, rabbit and hippo. Now I'm working on Kim's gang - frog, hippo, crocodile and rabbit. I had to go and buy more towelling yesterday.
Ruth bought four towels too, so I was pleased about that. Aside from the Star Wars towels, I don't seem to have sold a towel for a while.

At the retirement home I visit every week, we've been making flower wreaths from egg boxes. They turned out really well, I thought you might like to see them. It's fascinating how we give everyone the same raw materials, but the end results are so different.

It's a while since I did any beaded crochet. I'm brushing up my skills by making key rings as gifts for the members of the craft group in the retirement home I visit once a week. (Last year I gave them each a tatted bookmark.)
I thought I'd take the opportunity to try my hand at creating my own designs:
The zigzag one came out as I visualised it, the blue one, not so much. I wouldn't have a hope of creating that design if I wanted to, so I'll happily settle for serendipity! I still need to make a few more before Friday.
