Bunny hat

It was my cousin's 18th Birthday a wee while ago and I wanted to make her some cool stuffs for her birthday. Her mum got her a Blackberry playbook so I thought I could make her a case for it. I'm also quite into hats still and wanted to make her something fun, but cool enough to go with most of her black and white outfits, without being black and white.
This is what I came up with:

A quilted blackberry playbook case with velcro fastening and a Freezer paper stenciled design. It's a Blackberry :o)

New Toy

I have a new toy :o)
Ok it's a basic necessity, but I'm loving it. A Harris Classic Twin Tub. It looks a bit like this:

It not as good as the old ones as it doesn't heat it's own water, but I spent some time this even doing a a large load of washing and it was no hassle. I knitted while it washed, rinsed in the sink and spun almost dry. Some are almost completely dry from being hung up in the sitting room. I'm so going to get through loads of washing.

freezer paper

I've been having a ball with freezer paper. It's now my favourite way of adding a stencil to some material. Look at the fab results I've had.

I am definitely going to do some more of this. I already have plans
