Lovely but frosty Tuesday

Good morning bloggers :) It's a tea-Tuesday for some of you but I started the morning with hot lemon water and now having a cup of coffee with flavoured cream.  Not sure how that came about, I used to like my tea and coffee without anything in it!

Winter seems to turn me into a fibre and fabric crafter and not so much the paper crafter!  Here are a few of the things I've been doing.  If you would like to see more please visit my paper crafter page---you'll find the link on the sidebar :)   

The set of three crocheted baskets--the smallest one is a free pattern from The Slanted Life blog and the other two are my own design.   

The three toques below are pure wool.  These three aren't lined but I did make two others at Christmas, with lining.  I put the word out on our buy and sell face book page for White Buffalo yarn and was given and bought a bunch, so was busy all winter knitting!   

This doll--she's about 18"-- started years ago, just got finished.  There is a smaller version that was also started---I hope to have her done soon!     

A fleece jacket that I added lining to, except the hood.  I also added zippers to the two lower pockets and cuffs to the sleeves.

It's definitely Spring here.  The grass is green and the daffodils and tulips are up, but the trees are just getting buds. I'm hoping to get gardening soon.  This year I'm adding a little fairy garden and will be adding one indoors as well.  I'll be sure to add photos--hopefully in May :)   

Have a wonderful week :)
Please leave a comment so I can come visit your blog too :)
