Coronation Crackers- the final countdown!

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!

  1. Awww, I like the little doll. And of course you have to look underneath, ha ha!

    And the cardigan still looks lovely on you-- and bracelet length sleeves were very popular in the 50s, so it's perfect for the jubilee. ;)

  2. Haha. Roger's wearing my jumper! Lol. X

  3. I love that pink fluffy number especially! Thanks so much for sharing! x

    Ps: yes we all look up dolls skirts! it's true!


Ta very much for your messages folks!
