Squares Apon Squares!

Good evening, now before you all yet the impression that all I've been doing lately is staring at yummy men on the net, i thought id show you what I've really been up to! This is the quilt that my youngest sister Hollie asked me to make for her. This quilt is responsible for the depletion of my stash and my time but i don't mind because my sister seems to be happy with it!
It took me forever to measure and cut these squares out as i don't own a rotary cutter, the stitching shouldn't take to long and I'll start that tomorrow after i run my grandmothers massages
And this is the new hot man, chosen by sally to be contestant number three, Zachary Quinto from heroes! I'm liking the ruff look its very appealing (giggles) :D

Nice choice sally :) Thank you for your nomination :D

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!
