Knitted Flower

Another pattern found via fellow blogger Kandi Pandi. She very kindly included the pattern on her blog.

I'm not a knitter as such, I just know some basics. But, I thought it looked fairly easy, although the bit in the pattern which gives it the fluted look had me slightly worried, and then relieved when it turned out fine! (Kandi's instructions were spot on).

When I was looking for a button to sew into the middle this was the first one I found. I thought it was perfect!

I'm pleased with the outcome, perhaps its a little bigger, bulkier that I thought it should be. Not sure if I will make anymore... I may do!

Scottie Dog

Whilst Blog hopping the other day, thanks to Nuttybabe I came across this lovely Scottie Dog Pattern. I immediately book marked it for a  future make.  However, I couldn't wait and I cut out the pattern and hand stitched it.

 I just had enough stuffing to fill it and finished it off with a gingham bow.

I had put small bead eyes on him, but decided to change them for the googly eyes.

Can't wait to make another one!

Although I have mentioned in my profile that I host Karaoke, I haven't blogged about it.  So as I have just done 3 nights of very successful karaoke for a Corporate Client and they have posted a video on Youtube, I thought you might like to see what I do...  There isn't actually much footage of me, just a couple of glimses of me on the right hand side of the stage lining up the next track, twidling knobs for sound control etc.,

This is a gig we have done for 3 years now at the clients evening entertainment for their Trade Icebike Show. There isn't any footage yet! of the last night, where we had to hang on to the equipment when the whole room (which is a temporary structure) was bouncing up and down whilst everyone was jumping up and down to the head banging part of Bohemian Rhapsody. Amazingly the karaoke disc didn't skip at all!

As usual, we thoroughly enjoyed doing these shows, they always have a really (fuelled by alcohol) up for it crowd in!
