Yes it's the final count down!
And for today's instalment I have decided to group my crafty bits together....
First up, some Stitchcrafts and look (LOOK- I'm actually squealing inside at the moment!) who appears on the back *all sigh*
Yes, it's the extremely handsome Roger Moore!
of course I don't like Roger at all- no, not at all ;-D
^A nice fluffy bolero (I was thinking about knitting that!) and what about that mug- haven't found one like that yet.- I have seen a similar 37 one though....
Haven't got a gold Coronation coach either- well I nearly did, but I was stupid and didn't buy it!!!
.... and some single knitting pattern leaflets.
I want to knit them all!
I was thrilled when I came across this pattern, as I have the original cardigan!
Unfortunately it doesn't look it's best anymore as it shrank in the wash, and it now doesn't have a waist, it's too short in the body, blah, blah, blah (I have the original measurements to prove it!)
I think I will just have to knit another one to make up for the now, shrinky dink cardi.
|I know I have monkey arms, but the sleeves weren't that short!!!|
|A needle booklet- I have a larger framed print of 'Liz on my bedroom wall!|
Now the next one I'm not sure of the date, but I'm guessing it could have been made in 53- maybe as a school project, showing the first Queen Elizabeth perhaps?
Isn't she cute- a bit moth nibbled, but cute nonetheless?
Oh, and she has bloomers and everything, though I didn't think they wore bloomers in them days!!!
I take it that modesty prevailed with the seamstress who made little Elizabeth- well most people do look up dolls skirts to see what undies they are wearing, don't they- don't they? (or is it just me!) Surely we couldn't have a queen caught wearing no nitters (Knickers to normal people!), could we now!
Well Cheerio Folks
Tomorrow’s instalment will be....
actually I have forgotten, so you will just have to wait!
I'm sure you can hardly contain your excitement, eh!
