Knitted bottle hats

Wow is this weather gorgeous but too hot to craft much, i have managed to do a bit of knitting in the shade, i am knitting hats for Innocent Smoothie bottles in aid of Age UK, not really the weather to knit wooley hats but i need time to make a few for the cause, these are my first two i have knitted, more to come.

I was having a play with some pop can rings, a crochet hook and some wool, i love playing about and recycling.  
It's been a lovely sunny day but i have been at work so missed a lot of it, but it was still lovely to see that lovely big yellow glow in the sky.  Where does time go, the day/weeks and months are flying by, i'm looking forward to the summer holidays off from school and a few off at Boots as well, i need some craft therapy.

Well here we go, these are my first Christmas cards i have made this year, i have just bought the Hunkydory Christmas kit and i just had to have a play it's so good.
I went out to collect my chickens eggs yesterday and found this lovely little egg, by the side is a 1p coin, i believe they are called, fairy eggs/wind eggs or cockerel eggs, laid when a chicken is coming into laying or ending laying.

Morning this is early for me to be on here, thought i would have a chill before work, my card is a Hunkydory rocker card and below is my recycled dishwasher basket for my pens, then i stuck sticky dots on the end of the pens and coloured in with that coloured pen, much easier to see which colour.  well off to the craft room now, bye for now.

Well morning all, where does time go, i have moved my craft room upstairs at last no easy job, i have so much stuff but worth it for the view.

This is the view from my window, you can see some of my chickens and sheep, we have 4 pet sheep and over 20 chickens, i can sit and craft and look out over them and on a nice day my windows open wide a bit like French windows with no bar in the middle so its like being outside.
