The Fleet is growing and a lovely gift.

I hope you are having a good weekend, and enjoying the rest from work.
Today its been a bit cloudy but looking brighter now the sun has come out, at least its not raining, its been dry now for nearly a week, very cold with a cold bite in the air and frost at night. The spring bulbs are looking lovely and my daffodils nearly out, the Forsythia is now out, the bluebells coming up and the shrubs shooting. Spring is just around the corner, oh it has been a long winter with snow very early in November.
Today I bring you my newest planes to the TIAS fleet, above is one who took off and has landed safely in Cheadle. He was in Lisbeth thread no 20 called Caribbean with black edging and he took with him a few butterflies. I know Nic has now received them, she was the first one of my followers to guess what the TIAS was. There is a blog for TIAS and here is the link if you would like to pop over and see them, the TIAS was done by tatters all over the world and the results are now shown on the blog. A big thank you to Jane for designing and organising the challenge.
This another new thread Lizbeth no 20 in Tropical Punch, I love these colours and they have worked up so well and look lovely. I brought eight new threads back in November and I am still wading through the colours. Below is the newest to my fleet using the Tropical Punch and with black edging. I think this colour will become one of my firm favorites.

I received yesterday this lovely gift from Typstatting, Margaretha loved my cup cakes, and I sent her one, in return she has sent me this lovely gift. Thank you Margaretha the two knit stitch makers and some gorgeous thread, in a little bag. Only tatters get excited about thread and I have already decided what to do with the green thread. I have already put one of the knit stitch makers to good use. Margaretha makes them and I must say they are totally gorgeous.
This is a cloth I am knitting at the moment, the pattern is from the Anna magazine September 1989 I am using white merchandised cotton. When the cloth is finished I will put a photo of it on my blog, at the moment I am on round 71, with 201 rounds altogether. I have a friend whose about to be made a grandmother and has asked me to knit some items for the forth coming baby in August, so I am going to be kept busy knitting for a little while, when they are finished I will let you see them. Being off work is giving me a lot of extra time for tatting and knitting.
Have a good weekend, and unto the next time we meet up in blog land take care


  1. these are beautiful in your new threads, but I still think they look more like animals lol
    we have another beautiful sunny, but cold day here, better than the rain forecast for next week!

  2. Thank you for the kind comments and I love the cloth that you are making. I also have a few Anna books and really love them. It's a pity that I cant get them here in Australia!
