Been a busy weekend...

Havent gotten around to posting pictures yet of the comforter I made for Meg yet, but I am very pleased with how it turned out I must say! Not a disaster in sight! (For once!)

Have decided to try my hand at crochet, among the other crafts I like to do, and have to admit I'm not very good! I can't get my head around how to start the next row once you've done the first! If you have any suggestions or know of any good vids I can watch, please feel free to tell me! I think I'll need a lot of help!

Tomorrow I intend to get some crafting done...Have a patchwork blanket and a fleece blanket to finish for my lovely little niecey. Also wanted to get a birdy taggy-style blanket made for her too, ready to give to her when she & her mummy & big brother come to visit in a few weeks. Also I quite like the idea of making up a few more taggy blankets to put on ebay/etsy and see if they sell, a little extra always comes in handy!

Am signing off for tonight, both girlies are asleep, worn out from our afternoon on the seafront and watching the Birdman Festival 2011, so gonna enjoy some peace & quiet with the husband.

Have a good evening!

Ps. I cant figure out how to reply to comments yet!

Its been a while....

But I've decided to give blogging another try, after my lacklustre attempt in February! 3 days is all I managed!

Today I've decided I'm bored of housework, far too much to get done in one day anyway so may as well do something I enjoy! Crafty things planned for today instead!

I have decided to make a comforter blankety type thing for my lovely little baby girl, and have decided the owl off one of our anniversary cards would make the ideal shape!

So thats my afternoon planned. Will post pictures later of the work in progress and also of my newly organised crafting hallway, before the mess explodes! (I was fed up of the mess in the living room, so have decided to move the mess upstairs, unfortunately the only space available is the hallway!)

Have a good afternoon!
