Look What I Got!!

The postman brought this today;


Inside it there was this;


I put my phone in it and did this;

And made my crocs look very old, tired and rather dirty by doing this;


A huge big thank you to Terri who sent me these lovely, lovely goodies just for leaving a comment on her blog about sewing my finger into my machine when I was a new and inexperienced machinist! How we laughed!!


Now, I didn't do any knitting last night as I was browsing through the magazine that Jenny sent me earlier in the week and thought 'I can never make that' and then I got to thinking why on earth not!? So I got out lots of lovely coloured tapestry threads and started a new project (Heather's baby will have to hope that cardigans do grow on trees or that we have a very mild winter)! I have taught myself some new stitches with help from the blurb at the back of the mag and a quick look at youtube (really good, learned lots of knitting things there too). Watch this space, as they say.............


Simon and I have taken car loads of stuff to the tip and I have sold plenty of things on eBay this week making space to rearrange the house while we renovate our bedroom. I will no doubt bore you silly with talk and pics of our DIY. The plan is to make the bedroom slightly smaller and much neater by building a walk-in wardrobe (or a big cupboard) and I am very excited indeed. We have these mad ideas (well, I do) and my poor husband spends his summer holiday up to his eye balls in plaster dust and nails! We had planned to do the house up quickly but we have lived here since 1997 and haven't finished yet. Must stop having babies, it really slows down this kind of job, ha! I do have a beautiful kitchen, fabulous bathroom and the two back bedrooms are wonderful. By the end of the summer upstairs will be complete and the girls can have their own bedrooms, ooh!


Off to sew..........

OOhh - the DIY sounds, erm, good! We've lived here since 1999 and not yet got light fittings everywhere.......

Congratulations on your prize...suits you madam! Do have a go at some stuff from the mag. I find 'embroidery' really relaxing and soothing. If you want any more ideas or mags just shout!
