Yes, it’s that time of year again, when I just have to re-visit what’s in the Craft Room, and seeing as I’m starting to re-evaluate just where I go with this little venture, I’ve decided to move things on, so I’m offering my items for a very good price, as once they’re gone, they’re gone, never likely to be repeated again, so have a look-see and grab yourself a bargain!
‘Engene’ Tunic Dress
My beloved ‘Engene’ knitted tunic, that very sadly, just doesn’t fit me, and so is looking for a good home to go to! It was a pure labour of love for me to make and the photo’s don’t do it justice! Took me a lifetime to make, and it will fit between a large Odd Molly size 1 and a small size 2.
The pretty silvery crocheted detail can be removed from the back of the dress, if it’s not to taste, please feel free to ask, I won’t be offended!
This beautiful little tunic dress is offered for sale at £50.00, excl of P&P. The yarn cost me far more than that, but it go it must, as I don’t have space for anything these days……
Grey Sweet Heart Shorts ** SOLD **
These pretties are made in a lovely slate grey organic cotton, finished with a lovely pale beige crocheted tie belt. They would fit a large Odd Molly size 1, and are offered for sale at £20.00, excl of P&P
And then there’s a few other items that need shifting on……..
Odd Molly Fully embroidered Tank ** SOLD **
This stunningly pretty Odd Molly camisole top, size 2, embroidered with beautiful butterflies, it’s made of a wonderful silk/cotton fabric. For sale at £40.00, excl of P&P
Never been worn, it was bought as a present for me, but sadly, it’s far too big on me to attempt to make it look good, it’s a perfect summer top!
Ti Mo pretty…. ** SOLD **
This beautiful dress by Ti Mo, which is a XS, but more like an Odd Molly size 1, hence the fact I’m selling it! Bought in Oslo on my birthday, it’s just to darned big on me – again!
Has never been worn, original price, 1990.00 NOK, which is about £213.00, I’m offering it for sale at £75.00, excl P&P, which is a very good price for such a pretty little thing that sadly, hasn’t been worn….
Odd Molly underskirt
Sweet little Odd Molly underskirt, size 2, another ‘impulse’ buy many years back, which sadly didn’t fit (there’s a pattern here, don’t you think?!)
Lovely embroidery on the back, for sale at £15.00, excl of P&P
This stunning Odd Molly embroidered tunic, a small size 1 to be honest…. ** SOLD **
Offered for sale at £50.00, excl of P&P.
If there’s something you’re interested in, but not sure about, please feel free to contact me on my email address here…
Or if you like something but are not sure about the price, make me an offer, you never know, I may just accept it, as this little lot needs to be moved on!
Thanks for dropping by, have a wonderful evening everyone!
Stor klem til deg!

So it’s like this, last year I was in a bit of a dyeing frenzy, and I had this embroidered white seersucker material, but I wanted to see if it would dye perfectly, and being pure cotton, it did, and so I also did some lace to go with it – thought it was the perfect opportunity to make sure I got a good match, but now, well I don’t know what to do with it, so that’s where you come in!
There’s 2 metres of material and so I’m thinking it could either be a sundress, a boudoir wrap or possibly a blouse – depends on what I come up with, but I want you to tell me what it should be, and the idea that I like the most, will be utilised and then raffled off on my Facebook page – but only when I reach the magic ‘200 likes’ there!
I’m short of 10 people - heck, I’m giving something away here, it shouldn’t be too difficult, but right now it is, so it’s over to you lot, you take it 200, tell me what you like and we have a raffle on our hands!
So what are you waiting for? Head over to Facebook and hit the ‘like’ button!
You know it makes sense!

Been a bit undecided about this pretty little blouse since I made it last year, as it’s truly adorable, but I felt I should have made it a little longer, as the sleeve edge is actually longer than the blouse itself, and this is what put me off!
This is the original…….
It looks so pretty here, but in truth, I was never happy about how it looked on me!
Love the details……..
I decided to add an extra layer to the bottom and as I had enough matching lace from the sleeves, I think it’s worked out well. Thing is, it hasn’t been washed yet, so the bottom edge is not ‘blending’ into the creases the same as the top, but it will do!
So what do you think – does it work? Guess the proof will be when it’s washed and ironed, but it looked okay just now!
Let me know what you think, does it look good as a dress, or do you prefer it as a blouse?
Thanks for dropping by, ha en god helg!

Or should I say “Hipp hipp hurra!” to all my Norwegian followers! Wishing you all a wonderful day, wherever you may be celebrating!
This beautiful cake was my inspiration for today, as I have a friend coming round for lunch, but let’s just say that my decoration is taking a little more effort than I’d like right now, but I’ll get there in the end – may not look this perfect, but I had a try out last night, and it sure tastes good!
Gratulerer med dagen alle sammen, ha en god dag!

I love making these for friends, as they always look perfect with a tan, they’re soo sparkly and nice!
This pretty pink one with turquoise stones was from last summer and I wore it all the time…..
Wonder who’ll be getting one this year then?……..

Loving these new black and white photo’s of my beautiful friend Maria, wearing her pretty Vive Maria legwarmers, showing you that they’re not just for the colder months, but can be worn when it gets a little warmer also!…….
Love how she's wearing them slightly slouchy also, pretty shoes really add to the look instead of boots…..
When you’ve got legs this good, you can wear them any way you like!
Hope you like the artistic shots for a change, now I’m off to finish my breakfast and pick up the needles again, as these mammas won’t knit themselves!
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday, thanks for dropping by!

Just to let you know that I’m actually still knitting these pretties in between other things as they’re still very popular so, if you’re thinking about having a pair made for Autumn/Winter 2012, my advice is to get your order in during the summer months, as once I get even busier for these from September onwards, you’re not likely to get your hands on a pair till Christmas – if you’re lucky!
Pretty Maria in her lovely grey pair!
Just a little ‘heads up’ for you all!
Have a wonderful day, thanks for dropping by!
Stor klem til deg!

Good Morning lovelies, hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
Just finished off another version of ‘La Bella’ crocheted camisole, and the funny thing is that it actually wasn’t intended to become one, but that’s the story that follows…..
Initially, I was trying out a crocheted edging and liked how it looked. I had no idea what I was going to use it for until I had an idea…..
Why not add it onto the bottom of one my my ‘La Bella’ camisoles and have a different take on it – and so I did!
It’s a shame that the photos haven’t picked up just how stunning this crocheted yarn is, as it’s a white cotton with a silvery metallic thread running through it, and it just shines and sparkles like crazy! The yarn is very thin so a very small crochet hook was required – or should I say three of them, as they kept breaking on me!
And now I have some ideas on what I want to wear it with!…..
Especially my sparkly jeans – roll on summer jollies!
Think I’ll be taking both of these lovelies away with me, that’s for sure!
Wishing you all a wonderful day, many thanks for dropping by!
