Owls and Cushions


Something a bit different this morning the moving and sorting of my craftroom is coming at a price and I'm feeling overwhelmed with my hoarding. We are even sorting out normal cupboards to find space for some of my craftstuff!
Anyway last year I saw a mag called Mollie Makes with these cute owl mittens and DD has problems with her wrist that she broke when she was a teenager and suffers when its cold so I promised to make them. I use to knit like a card make many years ago but had to stop because of my shoulders but I thought these tiny things would be OK but yuck its on four needles but a year later they're done.

 I wanted a book cushion for my e reader but could only find one from the US and the postage was awful but google did find a page on how to make your own. All it is, is a rectangle about 10 inches by 14 inches. So making that was easy but using little tiny foam balls without a funnel wasn't funny at least I had the sense to try to outside. In the end my son came to the rescue and he vacuumed the patio afterwards!


I am still making cards just but priority has to be given to my Design Teams and I expect I will have to go down the CAS route for a while as well.


But I will be back I think at 1pm with the new Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge.

  1. How cute are those..........I want some!! They are just fab & tbh it would probably take me a year as well......I'm terrible for finishing things lol. Love the e-reader stand/cushion. I've neglected my e-reader for a while now, I'm quite ashamed tbh :0(

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

  4. Hi Debs, I have a book case for my Kindle, it stands up like a photo frame, but I think youve done a brilliant job of creating your reader but done forget to make sure you dont actually put the reader onto the material directly or it will get over hot. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

  7. love your book pillow Debby! I got the same magazine and made up the gloves in a brown chunky yarn from the market, never got around to putting the button eyes on though! They are in my gardening coat jacket, probably with a lot of dried mud from when I last wore them .. .. I think I'll be getting them out and dusted off very soon though!
    hugs, annie x

  20. Ohhh, I LOVE these mittens Debby! My DD is crazy for owls so I will have to see if I can buy a back issue of the mag.

    LOVE your book cushion. They have them at my local bookshop but they are $50 Australian which is about 29 and a half pounds - soooo expensive so it is good to know that you can make them yourself. I had a giggle at the foam balls - must have looked like it snowed!
