knitting

my mini knitting needle's,..tiny mini crochet hook,..pattern's and wool have now arrived,..
I have so far attempted miniature 'Granny Squares'  for a 1:12th scale Afghan..
 seems a bit big for 1:12 scale but will look nice when finished,..
     today is damp again here so I have been inside most of the morning
 and started a 'MillHill' Buttons&Beads x-stitch on perforated paper... working on perforated
 paper makes it lay better for framing ..
                                   I want to get started on a 1:12 scale room box over the weekend
for a group project .. we will all be doing a different one which should be fun.. hope everyone else is finding fun things to do  ;)
