Christmas Pattern Swap

Oh I do love a good swap! The stalking, the shopping, the wrapping, the posting and the waiting. But most of all the excitement of opening my parcel!

I sent a parcel of Malabrigo sock, chocolate, and a shawl pattern to Hannah and what a lovely surprise to find that Hannah had me too!

Today I received the most gorgeous parcel! I absolutely adore the yarn! Hannah dyed it herself. Isn’t she clever! She sells her yarn too so head over to Red Riding Hood Yarns  to get your own gorgeous yarn! She also gifted the Teachers Pet pattern and I can’t wait to cast on…maybe after Christmas.

She also included 3 handmade personalised ornaments, one for each of the girls. They love them. Thanks Hannah!

{Conversations with little girls #3}

While taking Isla to a public toilet

Isla - Mummy, what’s that? (pointing to a sanitary bin)

Mummy – It’s for yucky things

Isla – …pause…for little boys?

Twirling fun!

You know the skirt mentioned here? Well this is it and the enthusiasm Elsa expressed for me to finish it still exists every time it comes out of the wardrobe. She loves it! So do I. Perfect for those warmer days (Summer hasn’t quite hit here yet, we had the fire on the other night!).

Pattern – Barefoot Knits Twirly Skirt

Yarn – Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece

If you can’t do it right, don’t do it at all…

I am afraid this is me. I wish it wasn’t a lot of the time and I am learning to not be so much like this. I mean who can sew, knit, craft everything perfectly the first time! Not me! Blogging has been a bit like this lately. I guess I don’t have to tell you as it has been pretty obvious that I haven’t been around much at all lately. It was once again one of those “ I don’t have time to do it perfectly so I can’t do it at all” moments…or months really!

But I am back! It won’t be perfect but I will post more regularly!

Just because the blogging stopped it doesn’t mean the crafting did. Time to get the camera out I think. I will be back….soon.
