Living the simple life

Tuesday, 10 January 2012

Little man came to see Grandad when he got home from hospital and was full of fun. Daddy is supposed to be holding the door shut but little monkey decided to turn it into a game!

On the pennypinching front have been very busy with my new dehydrator and am planning the garden ready for spring - if we get one.

Crochet coming on in leaps and bounds, bags full of finished projects and WIPs. Just had a delivery from Kemps, 600 gms dk and 2 balls of mini pompom wool all for £12 including postage. Very pleased with it all. Shound keep me busy for a couple of weeks, though I have used up about 500gms this week.

This is what I have been doing whilst sitting in hospital waiting rooms while john was having his recent op - kept me sane! Am planning on making 50 of the balls for Christmas craft fair and the snake is for Annabel.

Keeping up a notebook of projects on the go and plans for the rest of the year but then it is only 10 days into the year!

My hardest creation to date - a tea cosy, looks simple but you really have to concentrate.

So far the year is going ok, am making lots of things and getting sorted!Had to add a little pic of Michael - he is a big boy now .
