One more sleep and it's back to work for me. My special box I'm taking
back to work is laden with new treasures for the library. I have made a
wonderful start on my Christmas items and here is a cute little
Christmas bag that I enjoyed working on. '
Small Christmas bag
I have realised that with some
things you don't need a pattern just have a go at creating something
from your own thoughts. There is no particular steps to this bag,
just a simple shape and a strap of no particular size.
I have also made a start on a baby blanket done in candlewicking.
I had made a similar blanket for Brandon and Cory when they
were babies (and I still have it) and decided it would be fun to
make again for a baby due in February. With February being
one of our hot months the baby parcel I am making will
include sewn gifts as well as knitted things.
I made a funny little thing-a-me-thing too. Just made out of
scraps sewn together. Old fleece material for the ears and
a crocheted edge.
I have recently heard of a craft called Tunisian crochet or trichot.
I had quite a job to find anything as I wasn't
sure how to spell it and what do you know....I
looked up good old faithful and found some info.
curious when I saw what looked like a long knitting needle
a crochet hook end on it. What is this? It is a real in between
knitting and crochet. You don't have to turn your work while
you go. You have to see it to get it.
Well time is ticking on and there is much I need to do today, being
the last day of holidays. I'm going to spend it doing all the things
Cheers to you all,

sew in. The pudding is knitted in 8ply and I had loads of brown yarn
but when it came to the custard topping I onlyhad 4 ply. I doubled the
hooked (thank you very much Heather) and can't stop making them.
made a little Christmas holder to put sweets in and this will be a gift for
fantastic piece of Debbie Mumm material given to me and just the
at this time. I've added mixed berries with the most yummiest yoghurt around.

Hi everyone, today I did something that I
haven't done in my entire married life...
I went to the city and did some shopping
by myself!!! I did go to some shops that
I wouldn't usually bother to stop in
and I hadn't been missing anything.
I did find some nice shoes and tops for
myself and made a start on my
Since starting holidays I have had that
extra bit of time to surf the net and look
what I have found.......
Yummy! bacon and eggs.
Fancy some breakfast? Or perhaps a
I thought it might be fun
for the kids at school to 'play with
their food'. Eekkk! Better not let any
parents hear me saying that. There are
patterns around for you to make
some yourself. I actually just stuck
some stitches on my crochet hook and
away I went. I haven't followed a pattern
for any of this stuff, just made it up as I
Lettuce and carrot rings!!!
I also found these gorgeous little bootees
and I have made a trial pair to see how
they knitted up.
Cute little bootees

pattern. The price is $3.99 US to
buy the pattern.
I'm hoping to get a bit more done on the
garden as the weather is starting to be
all silly again. I'm having to take
preventative measures against
hay fever this year as the wind is
really kicking up its heals.
A most pleasant day to you all
and to everyone at home with small kids,
really enjoy the pleasures that your
Catch you all another time.
