This is a brooch with a birdcage inset surrounded by pearls. The ruffle and background are the text from a penguin book.

When the guy in carphone warehouse offered me some pedestrian covers for my new phone I told him I'd knit my own! He advised that I make sure it protects the touch screen. I tried to find a cute one in the gift shops without success, hence my next project. The crocheted flower is for the side of the touch screen.

This cushion reminds me of the 70s. I've knit a lacy outer out of pure new wool and made the inside out of a really pretty liberty style print (see the heart I've made with the print) for the cushion inside and fastened the outer with mother of pearl buttons. The material and buttons are from Sally Bourne Interiors, I bought the wool from a charity shop in Yorkshire.

These are hand knitted mini veg for babies. I put bells inside so they can be used for rattles and fill them with baby friendly stuffing. They're really cute for older children to play shops with, and to teach them about health eating. They're knitted in bamboo cotton and along with the filling they're machine washable so if they're dunked in food or drinks all is not lost.
