Hearty Cube bags and 2017 makes
I have neatened up my dressing table making cube shaped bags. Left to right: potions bag, make up bag, hair decorations bag, and essential oils bag.
The hair bag had a trio of pockets for my wooden hair clips.
and a pocket for scrunchies from Peru.
Here are the pieced pockets during construction. Even the smallest triangles were used.
The make up bag has a couple of tall thin pockets for eyeliners. They are the sort of thing I usually have to dig around for. No more!

Here is a better pic of the angel lap quilt.
Angel face cloth with a crochet trim. The facecloth part was a free craftsy pattern.
Know anyone who would appreciate an angel in their lives right now?
This Swiss chalet tea cosy came from a vintage pattern. It was part of a present for my elderly uncle with some tea for Christmas.
After Christmas he called thanking me for the hat. It was a little big but he drove with it on the back of his head on Christmas day. I racked my brain as I had given him a hat the previous year. Then it dawned on me that he had worn the tea cosy to church! I think there may have been a few knitters in the congregation who may have started to worry about him!
I explained and said that I should have labelled it, and we laughed together. I can see me telling that tale for years, as a cautionary one to label your gifts with their purpose.
Remember these 2 ogham cushion covers?
A naughty Dobby dog decided their wooden buttons were really chews! I had to re-knit the button bands. This time they have metal and mother of pearl buttons.
I would like to do a quick recommendation for the 5 Heavenly Daze books by Lori Copeland.
Imagine an island guided by 7 angels with a hot line to God helping the people of the island to solve everyday woes. A joy to read. Sadly I will start the last one at the weekend.

Socks made from a birthday gift of yarn.
My pottery tile progress.
A couple of mushroom themed picnic rolls. Your cutlery goes in the pocket on the right and the mat ties around them.
There was a lot of pots of tea making so I could just sip and sew in the Christmas Elving.
These sum up a English Summers to me.
Da dar! A pottery mug big enough for my morning coffee. the pot in front is my first ever wheel thrown pot, made with a lot of help from the teacher. The one behind is what I made alone afterwards. They are little, thick and wonky, but I am so proud of them.
Lastly I forgot to show you this corduroy. I bought the fabric remnant from the scrap store.
It became a long pinafore dress ideal for Winter with my reptile circulation.
Now I think I have finally caught up with the makings so far. Lots of adventures still to share!
I also need to see what you have all been up to.
