Halloween 2006.

Well Anna-Kate has been begging me for a pumpkin - so I have crocheted her one !!!
Bless her she asked if she could put a candle in it - I told her very quickly I didn't think that was a good idea !!
I now have to make one for Luke's window. Halloween project is now complete! Anna-Kate and Luke are happy upstairs with a pumpkin on their windowsill.

Back Again!

I have been so busy here in Wiltshire that I have hardly had any time to update the blog!!
I sold the blanket on ebay for a grand total of £25-50.
I am working on another 2 blankets. One for ebay and one for work - it will be raffled in November to raise funds for activities for the residents.
I am also making Christmas presents all very hush hush !!
Photos to follow asap. It was book character day last week Wednseday - we had one days notice so I gave in and bought a Peter Pan and Tinkerbelle outfit. Here are my two all dressed up and ready for school. You can see the flowers I was bought for my birthday in the background - a bunch each from my children and one from Ben, Sarah and James. Must go and get ready for work now !!

The blanket is finished !

I have finished the blanket at last and have listed it on ebay - we will see if it sells and for how much ! It measures 60 inches (5 foot) by 43 inches so isn't small!!
Weaving in the ends was a nightmare so I hope that someone out there appreciates it !
I am now working on an old cross stitch I bought when I was in England working as an au pair.
I Took The Handmade Pledge!
