Warning...Spell Check is not working today...if your precious about good grammer and spelling do not read on...unless you want a laugh!
Three cheers for February, phew what a month January was, usually I like this month, this year however it stuck to the tradition of being a bleak month!!! So lets move on and get on with the nicer things in life. I started the day off with a swim, the pool was vertually empty and I enjoyed listening to the swishing of the water as I ploughed up and down. I came home via the supermarket and filled the fridge with food for the weekend, a nice cup of coffee, I made a telephone call I was not looking forward to and now its time to relax a little in blogland... SO what have these busy little hands been up to? Quite active actually...I mentioned in my previous post I had got my hands on some super cute and excellent quality baby fabric so I made some bibs. I had one of my bibs out for a test drive to make sure they wash well, the hole is not to big or small, the fastening is suitable etc...I did ask the tester (well the Mom of) what her feed back was, I had to tell her not to be polite I really wanted to know.
Anyway it was all good feedback so I went ahead and continued with the pattern to make up a couple of batches...
As promised...my cards. The link is How about orange. You know how it is when you surf and you start reading blogs you do not usually read...suddenly one really grabs you and gets you so excited...well this one had me...so much lovely stuff and to come away with the print out to make these cards and less than an hour later to have a whole pile of cards using up some of my cute buttons...EXCELLENT. Go check it out, the PDF is linked from the post dated 29th January.
Now there has not been much retail therapy in January as I have been watching my pennies, but when a couple of cheques came in...well out the money went...After all the playing with felt I did the other week I needed (OK OK wanted...) to top up my felt stash, so I poped over to paper and string and she had a little sale on...Whats a girl to do? Oh and it all arrived so fast...the felt is a nice quality and as for the purse...it is making me happy. Plus a little freebie (we all like freebies) a roll of her super cute tape with little ducks on. I am keeping this away from the children...Thanks Sarah.
Knitting...well I have to admit I have been buying yarn more than actually knitting with it and its all Dunelm's fault...Remeber a couple of weeks ago my friend sent me a box full of big wool at a silly knock down price of 99p a ball (should have been approx. £7.99). Well I paid a visit to our nearest Dunelm last week in search of a pattern and they had different yarn, still Rowan ,so excellent quality and again for 99p.
I ask you again...'What's a girl to do?' ... One huge pile of Holiday yarn and I have the pattern book for this yarn...Not all of it is for me...9 balls are heading to my knitting friend, I am now officially overflowering with yarn stash...
I have a cupboard filled with yarn, a basket in the livingroom and one in the sewing room, a big underbed storage box full and now this...I better get knitting!!!
