Thank you for your patience!

With the move and so much else going on things have been a little upside down lately….there are lots of messages to reply to, emails to send, updates to give and pictures to post- Thank you for your patience!

But briefly, a little update-

Things are moving along with our first park project and a local welder has started to make some play equipment. The space is still being fixed up and plants are being prepared.

Made by hand. A gorgeous giveaway!

Handicrafts are popular in Algeria and several people are able to earn an income by producing beautiful pottery, furniture, glassware, tiles, pictures, handbags, carpets, clothing and many other types of items.

pottery

Hand crafted jewellery has been being created in Algeria for hundreds of years and every region has traditional styles that make use of locally sourced stones and findings that are fashioned into beautiful, hard-wearing pieces. My Mother in law gave me a  brooch which had been passed down to her from her grandmother, it is years old but, even today the enamel and coral is still so vibrant-I love it!

jewelcol As part of our Winter Wonder event which starts tomorrow and finishes on Sunday we will be giving away one beautiful Algerian necklace that has been handcrafted from silver and studded with Mediterranean coral.Don’t miss it!

Winter Warmers

Winter will soon be here and with this in mind I have been busy knitting hats and mittens. I tried a few patterns for mittens but in the end decided to come up with my own. I have posted it on the ‘my free patterns’ page if anyone fancies having a go, if you spot any errors please let me know and I will amend asap.  

Now I just need to do a matching hat, I’m thinking one with a bobble on top would work well…..

More goodies

On Friday I received another package of wonderful donations. 

When this lady contacted me she said “I’m not the best knitter in the world” well, these girlie cardigans are just adorable especially the wrap around ones.   It was also lovely to get a complete blanket and the hats are really useful right now. Thank you so much.

For those of you who really are not very good at knitting your donations are still very much needed and appreciated.

My Aunt

 

My Aunt taught me to knit when I was about seven or eight so it was really lovely to get a suprise parcel of 3 baby cardigans and a little jumper from her.  My Aunt is a perfectionist, so as usual these little things are beautifully made; with even knitwork and perfect seams etc. Four little babies will be very warm and snug!

Thanks so much Chris! xx
