WOYWW 362 - The Flutterby Returns

Hi folks - I'm back with a vengeance - three posts in as many hours, after a year's absence 😊!

If you want a quick skim over the year's happenings, look through the previous two (short) posts. Otherwise, I'll just show stuff I've been busy with, since we last met.

Lots of ...


Home-made Dorset buttons

for a new cardigan (actually navy blue!?)

A couple of pairs of socks

One quarter of a finished baby blanket

A WIP shawl for me


A couple of baby blankets

This Mum asked for earthy tones

A C2C (corner to corner) pressie
Then there was a lovely pattern from Sandra (Cherry Heart)

with enough spare yarn for this pretty, finished with a bobble edging

Then, in true flutterby fashion, it was on to some shabby chic decoupage, with a pretty shade I found online

I'd better stop there for now, hoping that Julia will forgive me for a ridiculously long post, though it is almost all pictures. I promise, though, Mrs D, that this is the first and last time I'll do this, and I'll save my current flutterby obsession/interest until next Wednesday. Lots of love to you all, and I hope to visit you over the next few days.

  5. Hello Chris. I see that, apart from anything else, you have learned how to upload photos onto your __new computer!!! Well done. I've read your three-posts-in-an-hour. What a tough year you have had, bless you. It is indeed hard when we need to do almost everything for our loved ones... I do understand the pain and the adjusting. I need to do everything for John now. I thank Father that He has you in his arms - they ARE around you, even when you feel it is a fingertip job hanging in there with Him!!!
    I LOVE those dorset buttons on that cardigan - just gorgeous! You have done so much in the past year - well done - all that knitting, crochet and decoupage. That's great. Not getting out a lot can be hard, I've only made it to our worship service twice this year...but God knows and honours you in, and for what, you are doing. Well done, dear lady.
    Take care of yourself, and continue to enjoy all your craft work and obsessions!!!
    God bless.
