Little makes and more little stitches

Hello Lovelies

Have you got your cuppa ready :-)

Here are some little things I've been creating.
There are no pattern references as I made these up myself.

A wee pin cushion ready to make its home in my studio.

A little yellow bag - it's more yellow than it appears.

My first effort at crochet fusion - is that what it's called?

...and I've added lots more stitches to the vintage hexie quilt...

Ah...and I haven't tried to rectify the colours this time but it's still not right
ho hum

Apologies for being so slow with posting lately.
I've been trying to figure out a way of downloading photos directly from my camera to my tablet but so far I've failed (sad face). 

I've written lots of interesting posts in my head but that it's of no use to you, my lovely readers!

I'll try and write short regular posts using my tablet's own camera and will resort to the pc sometimes for posts and better images.

Meanwhile my constant companion has taken himself upstairs for a nap
But he'll soon be down for his 5 o'clock walk and fishy treat, 
Lucky boy :-)

Bye for now my lovelies, 
Thank you for all your comments and emails they mean so much to me and really brighten day.

Ooh, that reminds me... yarn and pencil can now be found on Twitter (here) and Facebook (here)
I must look into finding links...
I'm also opening an Etsy shop! Get me! I'm still rather lost in the setting up process at the moment though...

I'll be off then 
Thanks so much for dropping by :-)


  1. Another lovely update, loving your new makes, looking forward to seeing your shop all up and running on Etsy soon xx

    1. Thanks Mandy :-) I hope you had a fab weekend...
      Lots love Tracey xXxX

  2. good morning Tracey, your little makes are lovely. I know what you mean about finding the time to post regularly. I work odd duties at work and sometimes I work a lot of long hard days all together, what I call a hard slog. I am then rewarded with an easier time after where I have more time for leisurely pursuits. Good luck with your new adventure with the Etsy shop :-)

    1. Thanks Linda :-)
      It's kind of you to comment and certainly makes me feel not so alone... I guess most bloggers have the same or similar difficulties for one reason or another.
      Thanks for visiting :-)
      Tracey xx

  3. Lovely makes Tracey. Good luck on your Etsy journey! Amanda x

  4. Arrived here - how lucky! - whilst blog hopping!
    I'm so relieved that I'm not the only one who writes blog posts in my head lol
    Off to read some more posts no xx

    1. Hi Jill, thanks so much for hopping in here, you're very welcome and please do come again :-)
      Oh write posts in your head too...I'm not alone!
      Enjoy your blog hop.

  7. Love your little makes. I too write posts in my head and then never get around to it. I think I did two or three this week, lol. Good luck with your etsy shop, I have been thin king about it for my art, but there seems to be a lot of fiddle faddle to start up, time thing again!

  8. Hi Zana, thank you :-) Yes there is a lot of fiddle faddling might take me a while. I'm in the happy position where I have a lovely cousin over at Blue bell Lane Crafts to help guide me :-) Thanks so much for dropping by and commenting.
