Through The Keyhole

Thought you might like a nose at some of the cute things in my daughter's home in Newtonards. It is their very first home that they are buying. So are rightly proud of it. I recognise some of these fabrics - mmmmm me thinks they have come from The Fabric Guild, Leicester. It was rather strange to see this settee again. It used to live in Leeds and now on its third home.

This has to be my daughter - just look at these cookery books, but' she's only just getting going!

I like the tea cosy that she's knitted - well cute.

And this tea cosy was knitted many many years ago by an aged distant relative who died a few years ago. To me it still looks relatively new.

Never thought of putting flowers in jam jars - sad I know but don't they look effective. I was hunting around for something to put my daffs in as Asda was selling them rather short.

This picture I made  a few Christmas's ago.

I love this clever use of stencils and the scarf on the right was knitted by No. 3.

As a family we have moved so many time, due to Mr P's job so this picture is rather symbollic of our lives.

My daughter inherited this hand made quilt, sorry but her bedroom was quite dark.  Isn't it lovely.

Isn't the scallop edge gorgeous.

I always love hearts. Hearts, gingham and baskets - love of my life!

This is Brenda - I know a strange name, but this was my teddy. My grandma made it for me and then I abandoned her in the attic. When No 1 was a child she found her and claimed Brenda for her own. Note the squashed up nose - this is where I lay on her as a child and cried myself to sleep!  Aaaagh. Her clothes have changed over the years.

Talking of attics I have Attic 24 or Lucy to thank for the desire to crochet and this has stimulated the desire for my daughter to learn to crochet too.

I have no idea how my daughter managed to squeeze this light into a suitcase when she went to visit Peru.

 Love this cute mouse that No 1 made, especially love the tiny cardigan.

 Daughter like mother - bags, baskets full of UFO's or WIP's.

These were only some of her bags - I found many more! A girl after my own heart.

 Sock monsters - such a good way to use up worn out old socks.

The basket underneath is just full of wool!

Just in case you forgot - she is married and there is a boys room full of guitars, amps etc.

I love this living room with its large corner sofa and the open fire - so relaxing. It must be time for Mr P and I to replace our settee, as it is wearing out fast.

Well it is time to wish you all farewell from Northern Ireland.
