Got 'im!!

Who??  The Dragon of Loschy Wood, that's who!!  If you want to learn about this little known Yorkshire Dragon, click here.

However, before I tell you about Los, I've got to show you this:

Somebody put a sprinkle of white stuff on our car!! It came in around an hour because Young Sir got in about 6.30am from work and there was nothing then! We had 3 cats trying to catch the flakes!! Crazy things!

Back to dragons... well, nearly anyway!  Lace Lovin' Librarian let peeps know about her ice drops, and I showed you this one:

I also did this one, (modelled by Luna the Loony Mog... she was asleep on my knee!)

and now I have Los!

Los is definitely a MUCH larger dragon than McVroom!  What do you mean you don't remember McVroom??  He was posted here, he's a Scottish/Norwegian Loch Dragon!  Anyway, Los is LOTS bigger than McVroom!  In fact, he's hiding under an invisibility cloak! that's because McVroom has gone hiding when he realised just how big Los is!! 

Ok, so you're wondering just how I know he's lots bigger aren't you...  I'll show you:

This is just one of his eyes! He's sleeping at the moment... another little known fact is that some dragons sleep with their eyelids open... I will say that you don't want to uncover him... because if you try this happens!!

The light behind it was made by Sir... small battery, resistor and led. He has the technology!!! Now all I need to do is think of something to put between it and the eye....  (walks away muttering quietly)...

Day One

Of the new Tat It And See here: and of course Jane isn't giving anything away!

Many years ago on the radio there was a programme where people had to guess what an object was (or something like that) just by asking about it... Someone always came up with Elephants Foot Umbrella Stand, and I usually tease by suggesting it!!  This year of course is no exception!  My guess so far is an EFUS... or rather, the handle of an umbrella to go in it!!  I know a few years ago I shared a story of my Dad's about Mr Gent... watch it, or I may just share it again! LOL

Anyway, here is my entry....

Guess What??

It's all Lace Lovin' Librarians fault!!

Before I tell you what 'it' is... I've been reminded of something what I forgot to tell you...

Remember me thinking I'd told you about this?


If you want to know how big it is... spread both arms out sideways... it's that square!!
Well it was a present from Bump to Li'l Miss to say thank you for the toys etc... Bump is no longer a bump!! She's an even Li'ler Miss!! Born last Monday and I can't resist showing you...


Now what was the fault... 'Somebody' shared these as a pattern over on Face Book Thingy... Had to have a go didn't I? Look:


Right, off to wind shuttles and get ready for Jane's TIAS!!

2017!!  Happy New Year!!

I've been busy crocheting all year and this is how far I got...

It's the first part of a pattern called Sophie's Garden and couldn't resist sharing!!

It's made so far from the 'bits' I had left over from 'the blanket'...  I'm sure I've shared this before but here goes....

Not sure how big it will end up.... I may buy a couple of other colours to make it bigger... There's a pattern called Sophie's universe... and it uses the aforementioned garden as the centre.... watch this space!!  Don't hold your breath though!!  I may be some time at it!!

Merry New Happy

Or something! Nope, not been on the razzle, just finished this set from the latest Marilee Rockley book.

It reminds me of summer and watermelons in the sun!!  And Holidays, and warmth and....  Oh and please ignore the two purple 'threads'... trials of getting 'second hand' phones with damaged cameras!!  Young Sir has no idea how they got there, but he upgraded his phone and I upgraded mine with his old one!!

Wearing the set tomorrow when we go to Li'l Miss's 'other Gran and Granpa's' for dinner!!

Anyway, all the best to everyone. Hope Santa brings you something you really need!! In my case... sense maybe??? Rofl!

Did you see?

Over here that a Certain Tatty OG has finally gotten around to making earwigs out of this pattern??

Dread to think how many pairs of earwigs I've made from it over the past few years!! (Just had a quick count on my earwig stand... There's 11 pairs on there, plus ones that I've made and given away or sold!!  So probably 20 or so).

Here's a few of them:

Now to make the bracelet to go with them... Here's Jane's pattern... Finally!!

Off to dig around in threads and beads!!

Quiet aren't I??

Missed me?? Well I do have 'stuff' to share... First up is a gift I was sent the other day... it needed a 'forever home' where it would be looked after and made to feel needed! What was it?  Ooh you are a nosy lot!! VBG

I'll show you...

 As I say, it had decided it needed a new home... Thanks Janet!!!  It'll be in use soon!!

What else... Oh yes, I'm sure I've mentioned it before but me n Sir are to be granny n granpa for the second time!!  Bump is due sometime in the next 4 weeks.  Mummy requested someone to make a blanket for Bump to give Li'l Miss (when Bump eventually makes an appearance in the family), because Li'l Miss has 'donated' a lot of clothes (non gender specific), and baby toys to Bump!  Guess which Granny had to get the crochet hook out, and get the wool.... Yup, me!! LOL

Anyway, there was a deadline... haven't reached the deadline yet... but Blanket is ready!!  Want to see??

Here you go:

It measures around 60 inches or 1.5metres square.  And for those of you who want to do it... I had 1 ball of each of the first 4 colours, and 2 of each of the others.  Double Knitting yarn. 3tr and 1ch sp, with 2ch sp between 2 sets of tr's in the corners.  6 rounds each colour and 2 rounds white. Yes, a HUGE Granny Square!! Edge was simply 1 round tr blocks and 1 round dc with 1 dc in each tr or ch (and 3 in the corners so it won't curl up).  The notation is English!!  For the US where I've said tr read dc, and dc is sc!!  Hey that means I'm bilingual in crochet!!! ROFL

Now to decide what to do with all the leftovers....

Chat later, coffee's getting cold!
