Hi Everyone, How are you all today? Did you have a good weekend?
Over Christmas I did quite a bit of Crocheting. I haven't showed you all of it yet. Today I thought it was time to show you our Snake. Now the Snake has been with us all our married life. He was a free gift from the Gas people I reckon we've had him 26 years! He guarded the front door at our very first house and now he lies in our hallway guarding this house. He's a Draught Excluder and a very good one at that.
Well he was getting to look a bit tired looking, a bit shabby looking and definitely the wrong colours for our colour scheme now. I've been meaning to give him a new lease of life for quite a while. Well this was his lucky Christmas! First of all I had to decide what colours to crochet his new skin in. I looked in my wool box and found that I still had some wool left over from 'My Fireside Collection'. (don't I sound posh!) So at once I started on him. First of all I'll show you what he looked like before the makeover!
I lay him down on my nice warm carpet and I began rippling away!.......
Then I had to ask him to take his skin off! :)
I did the head part afterwards. Just trebles and double crochets. Left some holes for the eyes, gave him some funny eyebrows and a long tongue.
There he was finished. He didn't take long. Now I'm calling the Snake a 'him', but actually now the new skin is finished and I've added a pretty peach bow, he's suddenly changed Sex! So the Snake is now a lady snake!! OOh, you have to laugh!!
Umm! What's that in the basket? 'Grey and White wool? Interesting? Watch this space!
So now here I am introducing ta - dah!......My 'Snake Draught Excluder'. My Snake has a name. 'Sissy Snake!' named by Bethel of Bethania! Thanks Bethel. Want to see her blog? A great one to visit, you're sure of a good laugh with Bethel! http://www.bethelofbethania.blogspot.com/
Do you like 'her?'.
I'd like to say a quick thank you to Bethel, Molly, Jackie, Pertinitaco, Susanna for offering to do a square or two! All the merrier! If you want to mention the squares on your blog I would only be too pleased. Squares for the Elderly are going to be so much fun to do this year.
Bye for now.
