Wednesday 27th May

Well there is less than a week to go now in MissyMack's paperbag swap and I have posted no pictures! So here is a pic of the bits and pieces I got from my partner Levineke.
Well to be truthful this was taken after I had started, but you can see everything anyway. I will need to start working on it in order to get it out by the due date.... Stay tuned for pics of the final swap parcel...

Other projects I am currently working on include (yes the house is littered with the many projects I am working on) this scarf for my partner. He picked the wool and the number of stitches and tension. (see I am negating any version of the sweater curse!) I was hoping for bigger needles so it would go quicker but he thought it was too floppy. It is nearly half done.

And this puff is for another swap. I can't tell you what it is in case my partner reads this. I want it to be a surprise.

And that is all I have time for today. Playschool is about to finish.

Monday 25th May 2009

What an original title for the post but I have no idea what else to call it.
I am my own worst enemy. I am the lurker who goes to other people's blogs and thinks "(*&^% they have not updated. What are they up to?" and here is my blog in a constant state of slackness. So I will try to fix that.

So here are 2 recent purchases. This purse kit from GJs. I came home and checked out the website and found more beautiful patterns. I need more bags!! Check her out if you have not yet.

And then I went to Flemington market ont he weekend and got the girls some new pants. I love KaT clothes. DD1 had one pair of pink striped size 2 that have lasted her from around 1 till now - at 2.5 they are about 3/4 length but still fit well. Love the stretchy fabric. So here
are the girls latest. (Alright I did buy more but they are being washed - gardening is dirty work!)
Here is some recent creativity. I have dyed some yarn with Kool Aid and food dye for a swap item. I have also finished the item but cannot post a pic because I have not sent it yet. It is not due until June I think.

And finally, has anyone seen these missing socks? Here is a selection of socks my daughters have only 1 of. You may have seen them in the streets - pulled off and forgotten, or maybe the washing machine vortex has spat them out in your machine?? I would really like them back, we are running very low.....

I'm back!

Well i have come back after my housesitting to show you presents!
Here is some yarn I bought myself with a voucher from friends for my birthday. I got about 13 balls of it. Hopefully enough to make what I have planned.....
I also got some material but that needs ironing (for a photo LOL) cause otherwise it looks terrible.

And here is a pic of my beautiful knitpicks nickle DPNs in the roll made by mum for my birthday. I had another photo showing off my interchangeables and the outside of the roll but I have saved it somewhere weird cause I cannot find it.
And here is the doll I made for DD2's first birthday. Clothes are my own design.
