Henry's christening...

We all got together to celebrate my nephews son's christening. the Minister was such a lovely man and included the children in the ceremony by asking them questions.We then went to the village hall and ate lots and lots of cake. I think its the first time we have all been together in about 20 years. This is a rare pic of my darling son Gareth, pity John didnt get gaz's girlfriend Carrie on it too, she is a stunning young woman.

Ahh my family together in one place!

Michaels first birthday was a low key affair. Jenni was most chuffed that my Mum got a taxi, train and bus then car ride just to see him on his special day.

Here are a few of my latest makes...

I have been a busy girl - socks, crochet houses, chicken cushion(a gift for a friend) and some of my bootsies. Have great plans to do mush more as soon as possible, as some very nice people on MSE have kindly let me use their patterns. What would I do without all my buddies on there?

Serena's wedding

have been making favours and table centre pieces for Serena. The wedding has a Mad Hatter theme and everything has to be transportable by car to Scotland. I have made 7 tiny tables with knitted food and handmade tiny top hats, the whole thing is the size of a dinner plate.

Its May!! ...

I cannot believe its May already. Just finishing Serena's wedding stuff then Im going to start on Christmas. Hoping to have a craft stall at the local church at Christmas. Going to make lots of my little houses too and put them on Folksy to try and keep our finances healthy.

Don't know what I would do without my friends from the Old Style Board on MSE. I have saved a fortune with their help and they are like a truss - a constant source of support - especially Mardatha.
