Booking it.....

Ok so i have'nt got anything crafty to show you as what i've been upto the last couple of weeks is a suprise for my 100th post which will be the post after this one :D, i cant believe i've writen 99 posts and am still addicted to this place :).

I thought i would show you all some future projects that i am planning to take on when i've finished some of the ones that i already have going!

I found these two books in the liberury and just fell in love with some of the patterns in them!


This is a japanese inspired pattern that i want to do for my bedroom wall, the pattern is different and very pretty and appealed to my deep interest in asian culture :)

And these are just some of the socks from this book that i want to make but first i have to learn how to knit with three needles :) which i think is going to be very interesting, fun and at times frustrating

I not completely finished and ready for my hunderth post suprise so it might be a few more weeks before its done :) till then bye!

P.S. mums knitted up something new to take a look go to the link in my side bar called house of wool. :)

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

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…

Tutu Expensive!

OK my first post on the matter of saving money when you have a two year old that likes to shop (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!), Is about tutu's. Me and my daughter are taking a holiday in a few weeks with her grandparents to Devon and every year the site has a fancy dress competition. Now naturally I want my daughter to look the part so I ordered her a hand made tutu in the style of Cinderella, It drop kicked by bank balance by £38.50! now don't get me wrong its lush and I love it, but it got me wondering if I could do it myself. They would be perfect for Christmas presents for all her little friends and no doubt little miss is going to want a lot of dress up stuff too! So I looked to see if I could get the stuff and do it myself, and guess what? Of course I could! This tutu cost me £6.60 to make and I have enough fabric left over to do another!  Its made with Two 6inx 25yrd rolls of tulle one pink one purple and a waffle crochet top from china, found on eb…
