Elefantz Love

I've been a huge fan of Elefantz designs from the moment I found Jenny's wonderful blog. I was lucky enough to meet her in person earlier this year which was an absolute delight.  Oh how I wish we lived closer so I didn't have to wait a whole year to see her again.
A day or two ago she wrote about a delightful project she designed for Kerryanne English's Shabbylicious magazine this month!
If you are interested in sewing or decorating Kerryanne's magazine is a complete must have
Please follow this LINK to find out more.  You can read it for free on-line.
In this month's Bustle and Sew magazine Helen reminded me of one of my favourite childhood books, What Katy Did.  So I grabbed my 1965 copy and think it makes a cute backdrop to the photo of my sewing.  
Anyway back to lovely Jenny.  If you go to THIS POST at Elefantz you will find out how to get this pattern and I certainly could't resist. So last night, while watching The Voice, I made one and I love it.  Thank you so much to our kind and wonderful Jenny for all she so generously shares with us.  I plan to sew more and mine are going to become lolly bags for lovely friends.

I love the cold and rarely need to wear a jumper but I do like my feet to be warm, and I know lots of others do too. 

These adorable rainbow socks are a fabulous free pattern at Oomanoot.  Many many thanks to Rina for so kindly sharing it with us.  HERE is the link.
Have a great day, with time for some stitching too.
