I was wondering.... My daughter has set up a website for her crochet blankets, and I'd like to have it as a link on my blog. I was wondering if that's possible, and if so, how would I go about doing it ??? My blog site is run by blogger if that is any help :-)

Thanks TP I've just looked at her page, which is on facebook, and I don't think I can do it, as there doesn't seem to be a proper link, other than the facebook one. I'm such a dumb dumb at anything like this lol.

I managed to add some links using a link option. I can't get my daughters face book page though. managed to get the link up, and it went to face book, but wouldn't open her page. I expect her permisdsion was needed. I'll see if she'll set up a blog :-)
Thanks for your help TP.

I did this the other day .it's to aid with heat insulation. eventually it will have fleece on the other side but I ran out of thread!

it's across my kitchen doorway. I hate living in an open plan house. this is for inter heat insulation more than anything.

appologies for the mess, we're decorating.





and finally, how do you hold a curtain up if you havn't bought any hooks yet? RMT union badges of course Wink

article about crafting in The Observer today called The Hell of Handicrafts. I get the impression it's meant to be funny but it just irked me as most things written in The Observer do! I don't really care whether people craft or not but I do hate the "why make it when you can buy it " attitude. And I know it's tongue in cheek but it's a attitude I come across a lot, as well as the "you could be doing something highbrow" thing. Well, I don't know about you but I can both make things and read books with big words in. Not mutually exclusive!

Well here are the pics i have been promising for ages the top one is my youngest in the hat i made
I am doing one in black for middle DD in thicker wool as i think it will give a better result
the second pic is the fingerless gloves i made middle DD they were plain in the pattern but we both decided a bit of ribbon woven through just made them a bit more special. i had no hand models as they both have chipped nail varnish on and refused to have their pic taken like that Laughing
