My hook and hoop

It's been cold and damp here this week with grey skies and fog.  It feels like winter!  There has been a crackling fire in the fireplace each day and our little house feels warm and cosy.  I finished crochet fingerless gloves for myself from a Mollie Makes magazine, issue 22.  The wool was some I had already but it feels scratchy against my hand so I may make some more one day with a softer wool.  I have also started making a crochet cushion for Josh's bedroom, so far with wool from my stash.  It's now waiting for me to buy a few more colours.  In my embroidery hoop this week I have been plodding away at the Mrs Beasley's sampler quilt, enjoying taking my time.  And I have started a small embroidery for Charlie's room, something little and pretty to hang on a hook.  And now it's Friday evening and I have that lovely feeling knowing it's movie night and the weekend tomorrow, Wendy xx

  3. Hooray for the weekend........it's just gone 7 in the morning here........it's been raining overnight so it's damp but quite warm, so no crackling fire for me.

    The crochet gloves are lovely Wendy........I hate scratchy wool too, maybe something with silk or merino wool would make a more comfortable pair.

    Enjoy your movie night and the weekend.

  26. I think you will be needing the gloves this weekend - they are gorgeous, too! I love how Mrs Beasley is looking - I must admit I had a sneaky look at a magazine in the shop the other day and it really looks like it is going to be a real masterpiece. Charlie's stitchery is lovely too.
