Not how I look or feel, well not today any way. This is my 100th post. Taken me about a year. Slow no?

Well we must do something about that. I am in celebratory mood. I would like to offer a give away as a shameless way of getting more comments. I do so very love them you see. Well nice ones that is. Seen a few crappy ones this week. Mostly anonymous lurkers that pop up and assassinate perfectly lovely sweet people on sweet cooking and making blogs.Now that's all I am going to say as it courts fury and that is not what this blog is about. Its only crochet and crafts, a few mostly blurry photos and some drivel.

Look what I been doin this week. They are egg cosys



It has been a joint effort. I tried knitting last year and was amazed that I could do it. This made me cocky and imagine that I could replicate this new skill. Fat chance!!! So enter Mum. I feel that I should point out that the poor woman has cataracts that need lasering and that until that happens she cant do the cross stitch I got her for Christmas. I know what  kind of bully am I? Mum did say that she knits without the need of eyes as she has been doing it for so long.. I do the sewing up and stuffing bits. I say this is the MOST important bit because she keeps asking for overtime, the cheek.


Aren’t they adorable, when I saw them I simply knew I must have them. They are for my many nephew and nieces and goddaughter and brother and son and me, so Mum has a big job on. Keep working Mum and no slacking.  IMG_0921

I have to say that so far I want to keep them all. Oh dear. You may have guessed that they are from Little cotton Rabbits, herself a victim of aunty mean on the web.


Oh hello someone is peeping in this picture.


So, giveaway. I can’t give you one of these as they are all spoken for but what I did do was attempt to copy it in crochet. I asked permission to do this and show you as even though I had used a completely different medium, it was a direct copy. I probably didn’t NEED to ask but just felt more comfortable doing this.


So for your chance to get your hands on this filled with some form of choccie egg ( not allergy free, may contain nuts, wheat, soya or even chocolate) Simply leave a comment, say hello and howdy do.


  1. Hi Louise
    These are really cute! I really must learn to knit too!

  2. The egg cozys are lovely and I must say your crochet version came out absoloutly beautiful !
    I would love to enter your give away as I see chocolate is also involved. mmmm xx

  3. Hi Louise,
    OOh goodness aren't these so cute!
    I've just managed to get my Mother knitting and she's made me a potholder.
    IN purple and green and it's in moss stitch.
    I'm sure I could crochet in my sleep, very often you know I'm sitting by the fire and I can feel myself nodding off but carrying on crocheting at the same time.
    Anyway....your blanket has arrived. If anyone wants to pop over to Flickr Mrs Twins and have a look they may!
    Also our web site.
    You've made a wonderful job and I'm over the moon!
    Enjoy your weekend and ohh..please enter me in your giveaway please, if I may.
    Thank you Suex

  4. hello! How are you ? ( something like that :-) ? )
    Weet ge wat : ik doe het in het nederlands : hoi ! hoe is't ! ( that's the same, but in dutch ;) )

  5. Aaah your wabbits are lovely! My efforts at knitting at rubbish as I just have no patience for it - I must try harder. Congrats also on your 100th post!

  6. I meant are rubbish not at rubbish - I must remember to check for typos before I click the post button lol

  7. Hi Louise , love all your Rabbits and the crochet version is so cute ,please pop my name in the hat .
    All this meanness and aggression is very upsetting ,I don't understand how it started but I hope it goes away soon.

    P.S. just off to look at you SIBOL blanket :0)

  8. Congratulations on reaching 100 posts. I love these cute Easter Bunnies, I am very impressed with your crochet version. What a cute Giveaway.

  9. Hi Louise
    I'm the opposite - formerly a knitter of puppets, I've recently learned to crochet and plan to work out how to crochet a puppet. Your rabbits are really cute.
    Congratulations on your 100 posts and your lovely SIBOL blanket.


  10. Your rabbit looks fantastic!!

    Well done. Why do people think they have the right to leave negative comments on our blogs. Hump!!!!

    I love your blog!!! Happy 100th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I enjoy your gentle blog, which gives good practical ideas that are a little bit of fun - I know I will smile when logged onto your blog! Thank-you.
    P.S. Do enter me into your give-away as I love chocolate.........and boiled eggs.............and cakes. So, all of it will be well used.

  12. Hello! Well done you! I've loved all 100 of your posts, including the blurry photos and drivel ('cos it's much like my blog) - the best bits you know! ☺ Can't wait to read the next 100.
    Clever you to make up your own pattern, you're quite good at that. I do hope you plan to post about it.
    Have a fab weekend!

  13. They are very cute - and I agree the sewing up and stuffing is the MOST important bit - they only become rabbits then - before that they are only bits of knitted cloth (though beautifully knitted, Louise's Mum) Mmm, maybe they're both the most important bits?
    Have enjoyed reading all 100 posts and looking I think it will take me 10 years to get to 100 posts! So I am impressed)

  14. Hi Louise, Now, I am really impressed that your mum has cataracts and can still knit! I do hope she can get the surgery soon. I've spoken to several people that have had the surgery and they are so glad they had it. It's a fairly quick procedure now and the recovery is fast. Please tell her I think she is amazing. On my list for this year is to really learn to knit and make something besides practice squares.

    Congrats on your 100th post! I don't blog as much as I'd like to either. Life just has a habit of getting in the way, hee, hee. Your bunny turned out cute!

  15. This brought a smile to my face today when I really needed one...adorable they are! Your mum has to be congratulated for her work especially with the cataracts! You did a wonderful job too with the sewing up and stuffing, etc. Wow, you guys are a superb team. Kindly enter my name in your giveaway. So sweet.

  16. Oops, congrats on 100 posts! Well is work, isn't it? We love you for it.

  17. The bunnies are so cute, thank goodness for Mums. Little Cotton Rabbits patterns are just so cute.
    Congrats on your 100th post!!!
