Returned at last..........

Too long has it been since i could update this blog dear pixie followers:( All has not been well with the internet in the house of the pixie smith, but it seems subdued for now so i shall take the oppurtunity to upload some terrible pictures of the things i have been making......

Firstly we have this little felty/ crochet purse but probaly going to be used to carry knitting or crochet around in thing:)

Far from the best picture I know but i shall take some more soon and show you the lining too. This was my first attempt at felting a piece of crochet and it didn't really work too well. The stitches were too big to start with and i didn't try hard enough whaen it came to the felting process but i love the colour of the wool and i'm really pleased with the needle felted handle so not too bad all in all.

Next we have a felt scarf which became a birthday present for the lovely mandi.....

 I really wish i had taken a picture before i backed this because beause both sides came out really well if i do say so myself. I was going for a sort of tropical sea type affect? maybe? i don't know:)

Tee hee you can almost see my hand knitted samhain hat in the corner:) this was my first attempt at fair isle type knitting so well pleased. For this pattern try ravelry pattern here or go to erssie knits webpage here. May do a seperate post about this.... now back to the scarf...... 

Here we ahve the wonderful Mandi modeling her birthday present... but wait look at the mask she is also modeling!!!!!! sadly not one of mine but she has passed on the secret of how to make them so expect to see some here in the future!!!!

ok I have more to add but the pwchas in the telephone cables have returned so i shall post this and try again later

Much love fairie folk
