It has been nearly a year since I found Knitty and I cannot believe the friends I have found; and the support that is always there, unquestioning, non-judgemental and with a fantastic sense of humour xxx
A shed load of dishcloth cotton - you know what I am like - a dishcloth ho!
Some Peeps...I am going to release these on my nephews (without telling my sister) and then aim them towards the garden. Photos to follow...
Some sweets that DD has run off with...
Some sweethearts, for my sweethearts...
A close up of DD's lig gloss pack, before she ran off with it and added it to the collection...you know the story!
Thank you so much Poops, it was really kind of you! I am, once again, overwhelmed! THANK YOU xxx
This woman moved across a continent, and planted her seeds as soon as she unpacked! So here we are, I present to you:
Mrs Hanging Basket Tomato, Mr Pumpkin and Miss Squash Seen here in there final resting place for a few weeks, with Mr Bush Tomato, Mrs Courgette and of course Master Sweetcorn...then below we have the beginning of the Herbs. Here we have Basil - though I did prefer Dill (the Dog)
And finally, cress for my egg and cress sandwiches...yummy!
3 balls of Peaches n Creme, to supplement my lust for dish cloth cotton, which as you can see has been knitted up into 1 finished, 1 on the needles for me and DD is giving it a go too. She is keen to learn but is bored stupid by garter scarves, so I figured if she was patient enough to tackle a fan and feather dishcloth, then she should be up for anything...I'll keep you posted on that...hers is the blue on..watch this space, you may one day see a FO (or should that be "an FO")
Also, a fab card, and some Burt's Bees for me (I was a virgin until then) and I lurve it! Some lipgloss for DD which has quickly disappeared into her pit, and has been very quickly assimilated into her vast collection of lipglosses - there is a plan to show you the entire collection soon - again, watch this space......
Some of these little fellas. They are rather yellow, rather flourescent in fact, and stuffed full of sugar. Eat one, light touch paper and retreat...rapidly. I wonder why we don't have these here..can you imagine the school playgrounds running up to Easter hee hee!
And then the piece de resistance....MY KNITTY BADGE!!! I am so pleased/proud of this. Watch out for me at the Woolfest, UKnitties, I will be flashing my badge!
LOOK!! Lots of gifts...
Look at this...MY cup and saucer, isn't it fab. It is illustrated by the same lady who illustrated Guess How Much I love You..mine and DD's favourite book.
Look at the guinea pig on my saucer
I also had 2 boxes of Marmite Biscuits - yummy! She paid for all of this herself, she has a paper round, and she chose it all herself too. Aren't I lucky?
I was spoilt rotten...we had lunch at Cafe Rouge the day before - which was delicious.
The reason we had Mothers Day lunch on the Saturday was because work had decided that the best day to start our conference and get everyone to travel was that Sunday - I was NOT happy!!!
But thank you DD and DH I did really enjoy my Mothers Day weekend...same time next year?
First off, March 17th, and I received a skein of handspun from my SP8 Chocolate Bear...she did all this herself...how fab is that!
The colour is better shown in the first picture, but I know how much you like a bit of yarn prOn ;-) Thanks Chocolate Bear xxx

Oh, and on the way there we went past these little fellas:
I also now have a red button that works - I have only been waiting 7 years, and I have 2 men fixing our flat roof...goodness, can it get anymore exciting!

"******'s new scarf is nice"
"She always has new scarves, and they are always nice" "where do you think she got it from"
"hmmm, look at the colours" "doesn't it feel lovely" "hhmm, lovely design"
To which I said "Actually that is mine!"
"Where did you get it from?"
I made it!
"No, really?" "you didn't!" "how" etc etc
It was then picked up and fondled...A LOT!!!!
Apparently I should have a craft stall...I didn't like to tell them the cost of Colinette Giotto!
I am once again inspired, I am going to knit!! YAY!!!

DD and her lipgloss - it was very well received and quickly disappeared into one of a thousand handbags! And yes, she does seem to stand in that spot a lot doesn't she! She posed there for the scones and also for the pancakes - at least this time she hadn't got her pyjamas on ;-)

I am on the 3rd attempt of a pair of socks for DH, and I am unable to get my head round a pattern for a wrap. I have turned again to the wonderful help of the Knittyheads, but I am not sure that even they can help me out of this one. Bugger!
