Daisy does Hounds Tooth

Do you call it Dogs tooth or Hounds Tooth?

I am presently sewing a By Hand London Victoria Blazer in hounds tooth  (I will reveal it soon)

Needless to say I love it.

Whilst perusing a few online shops recently, I noticed the high street loves it too. I picked a few that I would wear (or make )to show you.

I love that skirt and those shoes...

1: Black and white Hounds tooth coat, £59.99 H&M, great for driving in.

2; Black tasseled suede shopper £59.99 H&M Hmmm I could stuff everything in there, this winter?

3: Clarks Pewter Tasseled brogues £70.00. I really do love these don't you?

4;  Hounds tooth skirt H&M £24.99 lovely with tights and boots.

Of course 'I'm just looking' ... because the other half reads this and I told him I am going to be very good this month, so far so good.....!

What do you have your eye on this Autumn? Are you buying or sewing it?

How to make a knotted tassel border for a crochet blanket.

At last you have finished your beautiful crochet blanket. You are considering the border, so whats it to be? crochet or tassels or a bit of both.

For me its tassels, you can see my finished crochet poncho here: I finished that with tassels. I actually predicted long ago that tassels would be big.

Back to the blanket border. I thought I would share with you how I finished my last crocheted winter blanket, with a knotted fringe of tassels...

Plans for a winter coat

I am planning for Winter in August! Crazy or organised you decide?

Actually it does not have to be a coat, jackets are easier for driving. So how about a 3/4 jacket or coat? Decisions decisions, I planned on making a coat last year, but ran out of time...
