Baby stuff #2 .....


I am becoming a very bad blogging friend. I have been soooooooo busy that I have hardly anytime to comment on blogs of write one myself. I can read them on my phone but to comment is really pain staking difficult.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know all is well in the world here, we have had friends stay, night out and I am filling in a lenghty job application.

But all the rushing aside I'd like to show you my 2nd Baby Blanket .......



This is for my friend Wes who has just had a baby boy.

I have also been busy making baby bunting for my friends Emma's new baby. I'll take some photos soon though.

Also I have brought some felting yarn. It is 100% wool and I am knitting the cutest little bags for all my god children and cousins for Christmas! So watch this space for a tutorial on these babies!

 Just look at these lush colours!!!!

Oh I can't wait to show you them!!! Just give me a couple of weeks ... then I'll be ready.

I have so many exciting things in the pipe line for Christmas. Ekkkkkk! I makes me want to burst at the seams!!!

Lovely to catch up with you all. And I shall speak sooner than last time!

  11. I just started a giant granny square baby blanket but don't like the green I chose so may have to unravel a bit. Yours turned out nice with the two colors. We have that same kind of felting yarn here -- I've bought some, but haven't done anything with it yet. Would like to see how your bags turn out. Have a great weekend. Tammy
