Vix Knits… and crochets and sews…

My adventures in the wonderful world of arts and crafts

Happy Halloween!

This was Little Miss’s Halloween outfit 

It consists of the Layla dress, a net petticoat, and a little hat – all made by me with some help from my mum!

Little Miss looked super cute at her photoshoot last week and I’ve had an idea to use the same materials for an outfit every year to see how she grows.

Time for a scary movie – Happy Halloween!

Halloween wreath

Well, a week after the event, I’ve finished my Halloween wreath!
To be fair, I didn’t really start it until Halloween itself and I’ve been busy with a lot of other stuff so it’s pretty good going
Here it is!


The photo isn’t great, I’m afraid. Some of the patterns are published or altered but I made up the bat, the ghost, and the pumpkin myself
I’m well chuffed so the wreath will go up for a week or so until the other Halloween decs come down.
In other news, the fur effect yarn is a nightmare. I made several attempts and then calmly placed yarn and hook in a paper bag and hid it down the side of the sofa… Maybe tomorrow in daylight
Any tips?

Happy Halloween!!

Just a quick few pictures today as the unpacking and sorting continues…




























































I’m so happy with how the cupcakes came out, I think they look great (even if I do say so myself)

I wasn’t so happy with the gingerbread but they tasted really good and with a bit more icing practice, they’ll be better next year

Unfortunately, they’re all gone now. I actually made them for our celebrations on Saturday night and we’ve been chomping away at them ever since

But I figure it’s just an excuse to make more goodies!

So, my coffee break is over and it’s back to more sorting. It’s nearly finished so hopefully normal service will be resumed very soon and I’ll have some lovely pics to post of my beautiful flat
