Something New

I thought I'd start something new as I've become board of stitching so I've picked up my knitting to help my mum with an order from work.
This is the beginnings of a baby cardigan from a SIRDAR pattern in double knit, it took four tries to get this pattern right and i almost gave up but I'm glad to say i stuck to it and its coming
along lovely.
We have had some weird weather lately one minute its raining hard enough to break windows and the next its sunny and theirs not a cloud in the sky strange and really awkward when you wanna go shopping but are afraid of getting caught in the rain lol. Hope the rest of you have nice weather lol

That's a pretty pattern Sammy Jo. It's years since I've done any knitting. I did loads of baby stuff when I was pregnant with Jess including a shawl and a christening gown. I'll have to pop a piccie of her in it when she was christened. Abi wore it too and I've kept it and the shawl:)

You're not kidding about the weird weather! I put some washing out Friday afternoon and I didn't realise it was throwing it down until was too late to bring it all in. Then the sun came out and within no time my washing was dry again!

Is Having To Much Spoiling My Childs Chance Of A Happy Future?

So tonight i have been completely awakened to a very real possibility, that i am unintentionally ruining my daughters chances of ever just being simply happy. No I'm not just beating myself up needlessly, i read a blog post tonight that made me take a good hard look at what I'm teaching my two year old without even realising it!

My daughter is two and already she has a bedroom full of toys, half of which i could throw away and she would never even notice and with Christmas coming up its bound to get worse! At home i very rarely see her play with one toy for more than 5 minutes before she's running of in search of something else and when i read this post by chance tonight, it made me wonder if she would take this habit and carry it with her for the rest of her life. Would she buy herself something nice only to want more because the first item is not enough?. Am i setting her up for a life of credit payments and living paycheck to paycheck?

I have seen this habit myself in m…

Happy Halloween

Hi guys, Happy Halloween to you all :D

Little miss had a very fun day dressed as a kitty all day. then her grandad and auntie took her trick or treating for hour while mummy handed out sweeties to other little 'monsters'. I love Halloween just because you have an excuse to dress your little humans up all cute or scary for the fun of it.

I have no doubt that this wont be the one and olny time my daughter wears this dress as she had fun pretending to be a cat and wiggle her tail all day.

Hope you all had fun too

Till next time

Woolies For Under £3

So the second thing I've started doing is making a lot of Little Missy's cardigans, hats and jumpers myself. This costs a lot less than buying them in the shop as you can find some very nice quality wools online for pennies if you search in the right places, Facebook is one of those places. You'd be very surprised at how many craft shops are online on Facebook.

Best place to start looking is through Supermums Craft Fair I love this page you can find almost anything through this lovely ladies networking page!
