Christmas has come early this year......I'm one very excited Ada Bea!
One delicious parcel arrived this week......
I've been walking around with a grin on my face!
Wools Warehouse were having a sale.....
I couldn't resist! Thank you to everyone who's brought a little vintage wallpaper in my sale this week.....it means I've been able to indulge!
The colours are just fabulous and from 90p a ball....think I might need a few more, some lighter colours are missing!!!
I've got a little project in mind....it will needs lots of flowers, this is my attempt this morning, lots more practice needed! I'm not even sure what I have in mind can be done, but I'm going to give it a go, I'll let you know how I'm getting on!
I've had lots of interest in the granny squares I've been making. The pattern is from issue two of Mollie Makes, I don't think I can show you because of copy rights but its an easy one to follow, otherwise I wouldn't be doing it! It a pattern from Jane Brocket.
Think I've made about 1/4 of the squares I need.....
I've also been devouring this, I've also been looking through all my old issues of Mollie Makes, looking at what I can make, well eventually, when I learn how to follow a pattern....I'm still struggling with that one! Oh and the tension!
Now....just need to find a place to store it, but of course I've got to be able to see it, so I can droooooooool over it!
I've been thinking about the irony of life this morning, as I was trying to make my flower, no wonder I kept having to unravel it!
Irony One: parenting children isn't always easy, parenting a child who's extra special can be more of a challenge, and requires extra energy and patience. Parenting a child who's extra special, when you have a condition which makes you feel exhausted a lot of the time, just seems well....very ironic!!!
Irony Two: why, despite being very careful, when you remove a white wash from the washer, there's always a black sock in there!
Thank you everyone who's entered the giveaway! Thank you to everyone who's leaving messages and comments, lots of you are new here, "Hello and Welcome"!
And Thank You for all the 'mentions' I've been getting on your blogs! You really are a great bunch, and you are definitely helping me get through them 'difficult' bits!
Bye for now.....have a super weekend!
