Finished baby blanket and Magic Troll Vest

stripey knitted baby blanketI’ve taken so long to post this that another blogging milestone has snuck up on me! My two year anniversary as a blogger! When I started out I knew there would be times that I wasn’t posting as often as I’d like, but I honestly never considered that the reason would be that I’m too tired and pregnant! I am sleeping A LOT at the moment, and the combination of the hot weather and my blimp-like figure means I’m not getting out of the flat much.

Pink sheep, pretty wash cloths and chunky shawls

What a week! How can it only be Monday?

This is just a short post because I’ve just finished my blog entry for the Hillarys Blinds Country Crafts Competition (see it here), and it was a whopping great long post with tons of photos. It’s so long I doubt the judges will even read it all, but I figured it was worth a try!

Mothers Day was yesterday so I can now post pictures of the things I made for my mum without spoiling the surprise!

Left to right: a poetry book "written by cats" called: I Could Pee on This; a candy-floss pink sheep ornament that I... um... customised? with a shawl and jewellery; and on the right a glass jar of wash cloths crocheted out of Lilys Sugar n Cream cotton.
