I have the cucumber for the sandwiches, and the scones and strawberries, and of course a perfect tea cosy for the many, many cups of tea I shall drink while watching the wedding tomorrow.
Unfortunately, my teapot doesn't really do it justice as it has a funny flat spout. I got the pattern as a free ravelry download by Anna Elliot. However the intarsia garter stitch just wasn't for me, so I changed the pattern (quite a lot actually) first I changed it to stocking stitch, added two extra rows to the centre stripe, did away with the bobble and the lining, I only patterned the front, I crocheted around the edges, and I did it in vintage colours.... other than that it's exactly the same!!
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
