While on the subject of polishing brass and copper things I gave my antique electric kettle a good polish and made a start on the coal scuttle which I use to keep logs in. I again used lemon juice first and then metal polish. You can see it starting to take effect on the scuttle in the middle photo and I have started to polish it up but still a lot of work to do on that one.
Over the last couple of days, mostly while watching TV, I have crocheted a dishcloth for display in the kitchen. I used an odd ball of grey cotton and still have plenty left. I did one row trebles and one row in double crochet to keep it firm.
Last year I bought a yellow miniature rose to cheer up the bedroom. A few days ago I noticed it had a bud and now it has a beautiful peach flower which is nothing like the original yellow flowers at all but very nice.
I am Jenny (when I was little my dad always called me Jenny Wren) and I enjoy making hand crafted things. Watch this space to see what I am working on.
