My Featured Knit

This Rose Red hat that I knitted, and modelled by lil miss last year, got featured in this weeks Ysolda's newsletter here
It's such a honour for me as a outright Ysolda Knits fan

I love this photo.... and those gorgeous chubby cheeks :)

If you haven't heard of Ysolda before I thoroughly recommend her patterns.... you can find more of her designs here

Another Gift Finished

Next on the list was some much needed clothes for Lil Misses Dolls

These have been so much fun to make.... and especially photograph!

I feel like I should be introducing these dolls by name,
but around here dolls are just called bubba!
And being clothes for dolls, there was not as much finishing needed... and their may or may not have been the occasional cheat with the hot glue gun

To finish it off, some cloth nappies and baby wipes.

Nappy pattern from here

Now with christmas getting close and so many other things to sew, I am wondering whether I should make a nappy bag to hold it all together?  It would finish the gift of nicely... I guess time will tell.

And on another note I'm starting to wonder whether the lovely Juliet from Tartan Kiwi has a hidden camera in my house... we always seem to have the same projects on the go, see her latest here... mind you she's probably thinking the same thing about me!.... its getting spooky..... don't you think Juliet? lol

A bit of bling

Amidst all the holiday chaos I'm checking off my to do list 
  • A pair of pretty dangles for mum


Fabric in background is destined for a summer dress for me... crossing fingers I will get it done!

Loving the Christmas lights

My dear friend and I took a trip down to our nearest city,
to do a tour of all the houses covered in bling!
We finished the night off, with our ritual Mc D's sundae....
and arrived home at 1am.....hence I'm very tired as I write this!
I am really going to miss her when we leave.... she has been such a great friend over the last 9 years....
but as she reminds me, she can always visit us :)

Loving that although going gluten free is a headache, and wallet drain.... I've surprisingly managed quite well...
with successes like these mini carrot cakes

Why? My youngest boy's blood tests came back positive for gluten intolerance.... we are hoping it will stop his vomiting and reflux....time will tell

Loving my little girls continuing obsession with
gherkins and yoghurt....
not eaten simultaneously

Its never safe in the fridge!

And a big mumma proud loving with my boys at the
final school assembly....

My eldest won a cup for Special Achievement....
hes one bright spark!
My second boy won a classroom award for all his hard effort this year, and the amazing turn around in his learning during the year!
I'm so proud!
And lastly my youngest got a award earlier in the day for his
excellent mathmetics skills and always entertaining the class
My very own class clown! lol

Lastly I'm looking forward to the mad rush of the new year.... new school... new town..... new and better view out my kitchen window,
bring on 2012!
