Hmmm I’ll snaffle this one … and this one … and this one too!!

You may think from the title of this post that I am talking about Daisy – and her love of stealing my footwear!  She doesn’t damage it – just lies quietly and sucks on the laces – which are then of course all soggy and horrible when I retrieve my boots or plimsolls from her determined grasp.  But in fact I am talking about the snaffler-in-chief – my daughter Rosie!  She and her boyfriend Dan are here for the Bank Holiday weekend and, as always Rosie has been having a good rummage through my cupboard!  I wouldn’t let her snaffle my Great British picnic blanket (pattern in June issue of Bustle & Sew Magazine) – I have visions of myself using it on sunny summer afternoons …

Great British Picnic Blanket

 And anyway, she already has the patchwork one I made for her last month!  She did however manage to acquire another June issue project – my Naughty Kitten wip pouch …

Naughty Kitty: Work in Progress Pouch

 Arguing very persuasively that it would be absolutely perfect for carrying her crochet around with her …..

I had envisaged carrying my embroidery around in it, but she’s right, it will work well for crochet too.   I’ll simply have to make myself another!  Then Rosie noticed my current work in progress ….

Candy Cotton Rose Mirror

Some candy pink satin stitch roses destined to form the border for a small mirror – another pattern for the June issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine .  She has reserved the finished article, assuring me that it will be perfect to sit on the chest of drawers in her bedroom.  I think next time she comes I will have to hide all my stitching from her!!

The snaffler-in-chief and me!!


Haha…daughters!!! Every time I make something my daughter claims it also, yet what would we do without them…gotta love them!! And the items for the next issue look scrumptious!!

Lucky Rosie! I suppose she can’t be blamed for snaffling all your lovely projects, for lovely they certainly are. Can’t wait to attempt them and look forward to the next e-zine.

What a lovely photo Helen. You both look beautiful. My daughter is a snaffler too – usually of my home made jams and chutneys, but also of my make up!


Aw – thanks Celia – yes, Rosie loves my baking – and used to rummage through my makeup when she was a teenager! x
