WIP friday and other stuff!!!!

Our little visit to Ikea actually turned out to be a whole day event. I went with a friend and her little boy, needless to say the two children started off having a great time, I say started off as later in the day my little one ended up being in the wars. He thought it was great as I had relaxed some of the rules, and guess what...He got hurt, two incidents, one his cute little smiling mouth got busted and the second his finger got caught in a trolley wheel...Ekkk! I do not often see my little guy cry, but we had big dew drop tears. Anyway after lots of cuddling from Mommy he was much better although a little bruised. I then picked up my oldest child who had been hit in the mouth by a rounders ball by none other than his teacher!!! To round it all off nicely I am off to the Doctors for some tests...All fun going on here at the moment. So that's the bad stuff on to the goodies...YES I did buy more than candles, how did you know? So here is a little shot of my booty. Loving that fabric and the little bags are so cute and useful. I always get some pens for my children also they are good for little extra birthday gifts.
As for the WIP this is my bundle. lots of knitting to finish and they are so near to being finished. The heather one has been on the go since last half term, I did not pick it up for ages, took it away with me and I am now only 16 rows from finishing it. The tank top just needs its arm edging finished, again only one evenings work. The colourful one is the holiday project that got put aside due to the playing with the crochet hook. Its a felted (or will be) hand bag. The sewing bits are two blocks for my quilt, again both near completion...
As for my little piggies, Charlie and Lola, look how big they are now. You asked for a picture and here they are...cute... cute... cute...They say 'hi 'and love your comments it makes them feel like film stars!
I leave you with a little garden play. Teddy bears picnic, enjoying the delights of Houmous and nibbles. Need to dash, sorry to be short on words to day...

That hippo fabric is cute! I love how Archie got in there, as if to show that he is still cuter!

Your package is hitting the mail today! Hooray!

How come I always come out of Ikea laden down with bags and many pounds (money, not weight - I wish!)lighter? I only go in for a cheese grater and come out with yet more stuff to slot into my already overstuffed house. But - I love it!

Those boys are adorable - love the hair, Jack has just started to ask for short hair - horror of horrors!

Sorry to hear about the boys' accidents. Hope all is well now. Love Charlie and Lola!! IKEA is a dangerous place for me to go shopping, everything so cheap until you get to the till! Have a good weekend!

And she knits, too! Love seeing your WIPs. Maybe I should post about mine and then maybe I will finish them.

I mailed off your mags today! The post office robs you blind these days but I hope you will get loads of enjoyment out of them. :) Thanks again for agreeing to swap me for some yummies chocolates!

It seems to be a busy time at the moment. Sorry the boys have been in the wars. Hope the tests are fine...I can sympathize there I've had more test than hot dinners in the last year.
The piggies are really gorgeous.
Take care,

As it has turned cold downunder I am really enjoying all the gorgeous English weather via your lovely photos. My girls would love those guinea pigs and a rabbit - oh my that would be the best!! I, on the other hand, would prefer the stuff you got from Ikea!

We have just acquired 2 wee guinea piglets - a friend got one from a rescue centre that turned out to be pregnant - one looks rather like your swirly haired one.
