Finished....

Oh thank you guys for the wonderful comments about my little ones picture (see previous post)...well as promised here is the end result... He adores it so much, I wrapped it up in colourful paper and gave it to him in the morning (having been up till 1.00am to finish it). 'Mommy that's my picture'...followed by 'Mommy you made this for me'...
I don't know who was happiest..him or me!!!

Now a few goodies have arrived in the post this week, amongst all those catalogues for children's toys!!! SO when I opened one to discover it was my giveaway win from a special blog friend at Wildcraft Farm, I was rather excited. I was not disappointed...its a card...well I like cards but, this one was special...see the lovely embroidery design on the front, well inside the card are the instructions and design sheet (full size) to make it up...what a great gift idea, you could send the card and if its a very special person you could buy them the threads and fabric to make it with. Now that's one great pressie do you not think? This lady is full of ideas like this...go check her out...



Just a short post today as my little one is curled up on my bed wrapped in a big fluffy blanket as he is off school poorly. I will not have time to post tomorrow as its a difficult day for me, its the second anniversary of my Dad's passing. So I will be going to see my Mom and brother. Not to leave you on a sad note though I thought I would show you a little knitting heaven...well it makes me happy...very happy!!!

Oh wow - what a super idea to do that cushion with the Moo cow - your little boy must love you THIS much - I still get a rush of pleasure when I see the look of excitement on my daughters faces when I've made things especially for them, and they are now teenagers!!
