I can hardly believe what has happened in my beloved Norway, and in particular Oslo, a city in which I always feel like I leave a little of myself behind every time I leave.
My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Norway who have had to endure this terrible event. It's so very hard to take in right now and I'm hoping that I hear from everyone that I've made contact with as soon as possible, in order to put my mind at rest.
God bless you all.

Not the way I planned, but lovely all the same I guess!
You may recall, I started making this sometime last year on and off, and decided around February this year to start putting it together and posted it here as a work in progress – and it was, as I was under the impression that I had enough yarn left over with which to knit the last sleeves – that was, until I found that two of the balls of yarn were a completely different dye lot, and so after months of searching, I had to admit defeat and rethink the design of this little tunic – and so here it is, sleeveless, but nevertheless a pretty little number!
The neck is a perfect ‘v’ but is just sitting a little wobbly on the mannequin!
As you can see, it still looks pretty without sleeves and looks really nice with a spoiler top or pretty t-shirt underneath it!
So, as it has no sleeves, I decided to ‘pretty’ up the back of it and added a sweet little crocheted butterfly, in a silvery white yarn……
The skirt is nice also……
With sweet little detailing…….
Looks lovely on the mannequin, and I wish it fitted, but sadly (once again, groan!) it’s a little too big for me, so I have to pass on it and have decided to offer it for sale at £75.00 (excl of P&P)
The size runs between a large Odd Molly size 1 and a small size 2.
It took many hours to make, but it was fun, so for me, it was a pure labour of love!
It's offered on a first-come-first-served basis, so if you’re interested. please act soon!
Many Thanks for dropping by – have a wonderful evening, wherever you may be!

At last, the top of the dress is cut out and now I just need to get all my white articles completed in order that I can get this finished on the overlocking machine and wear it!
I only started making it last July, so I think it’s only right that I get a move on – and who knows, it may be ready in time for my summer party in a few weeks time!
But it is very pretty so fingers crossed I make it in time – watch this space for the finished article – coming soon!
Have a lovely evening and thanks for dropping by!

But it’s so much more meaningful when those flowers are from your lovely neighbour and they’re from her garden – bliss!
These sweet peas are absolutely divine and I had enough for two vases, so the house smells divine!
Too posh to garden in?……well perhaps, but I had fun wandering around my own garden deadheading and weeding last week, and as I was enjoying wearing my bloomers and FOL, I decided not to change – however, as I’m painting yet more garden furniture today, there’s no way I’m wearing any Odd Molly – or Little Miss Norway for that matter!
Wishing you all a wonderful day, wherever you may be!

Gosh, it’s a few weeks since I was in here!
Well as you’ve guessed, I’m back from holiday, had a fabulous time in Greece, but ended up poorly last week, so now I’m playing catch-up again, or should I say today, pottering and doing ‘dolce far niente’ as that sounds so much better!
And to kick us off, another pair of wee little shorts, but this time these were made for a very special girl called Maria from Sweden. I’m hoping that she sends me a photo of her wearing them real soon, as I know she’s going to look amazing in them!
I had so much fun making these, especially as they were for my dear friend Maria and the colour was just so pretty to work with – was looking forward to finishing off a pair of very pale pink ones today – well actually, the shorts are made, but can you believe it, I broke the crochet hook making the belt, so now I’ll have to wait till Saturday to replace it and finish them off!
And at last I finally got round to deciding how to finish off the top of this little number – heck, I only started it last July, so it was about time I got a move on – well it’s cut out, but I’m stalling until I’ve finished some white items of clothing I’m making, as it means changing the threads on the overlocker, and no matter how careful I am, one of them always breaks and it takes ages to fix it all up again! The not-so-nice part of sewing I guess…..
And now I’ve got some ideas in mind for this beautiful taupe coloured broderie anglais fabric from the US, as I think my dyed pink lace compliments it very well – and yes, I am determined that I will whatever I make this summer and not the next one!
So with that, I guess I’d better crack on instead of sitting here frittering the day away!
But before I forget, I still would like another 15 peo0le to hit the ‘like’ button on my Facebook page, so hit the Norwegian heart above and come and join us, as there will be a prize draw as soon as I reach the magical ‘100’ fans – not a lot to ask, when there’s a freebie – or is it, as I’m rather struggling right now!
Thanks for dropping by –wishing you a wonderful evening!
