New Banner

I am finally happy with the banner for my Blog.  My dad has been helping with the photo editing and yesterday I crocheted up this cute little character, photographed her and emailed a copy to my dad.  I felt that the previous banner was hiding the lovely bark on the tree and as I am a texture type of Gal, it wasn't feeling right!


So now we have a mummy plus two babies and still all the beautiful bark.
Thanks mum and dad for all the input and help.....

 


  



Want to see what else I have been playing around with this week?  Master E requested a sock monkey and I found this really cute pattern for a crochet sock monkey pattern on www.etsy.com from www.SherriCrochets.com  Couldn't resist making this one.



  


you know you have a winner when he gets taken to bed straight away....



 


 
I have also decided that to get that dress that I have been searching for means that I will have to make it myself!    So I found one of mine that has the shape I want ...... 

 




and started undoing the seams to make a pattern template.  I did remember to label the pieces so that I can put it back together again (hopefully!)  I haven't done any sewing except for straight lines for ages so I am hoping that all the lessons mum gave me will pop back into my head?   If not I will be on the phone!   I will let you know how I get along, it may take a while....






Have a great week,  Jenni  xx
