::It is times of uncertainty like these that i'm glad we have our family around us to ease the burden a little. I mean who could possibly feel sad when you are greeted with a beaming cheeky smile from a nine month old child..............utterly impossible to resist............
:: Back to things that make me happy, we have a new shop that has just this very day opened in our village stocked to the rafters with lovely market fresh fruit and veg and flowers, so it was absolutely necessary to buy flowers and strawberries to brighten up my day, and brighten up my day they certainly did! I must take some pictures for you all! I'm afraid this post isn't going to be pictury at all, just me rambling on about the ups and downs and the why to's and where for's. I know you will forgive me just this once eh?! My granny stripe (as mentioned in the last post) is coming along beautifully.I love all the colours and it got a big thumbs up for my mum when she visited at the weekend so I know I must be on to a winner. I already have a few cheeky projects in the pipe line too for when granny stripe is finished. I'm already having to stop my self from trying to take on about five projects all at the same time lol. It's sooooo hard though when you have a really really good idea and you feel like you HAVE to try it out right away, this instant. Oh well, they do say good things come to those who wait so I'm in no hurry lol.
On that note I will get off, I've got to practise my best quiz reading voice you know! xxxxx

:: As you can see, baby g was trying to sneak into this picture! He's 8 months old now, I just don't know where the time has gone!!! Well, back to blanket stuff, this pattern is oh-so-easy perfect for the busy crafty mum as there are no fiddly patterns that demand your absolute concerntration, you can literally whizz through the rows in no time and it doesn't matter if you have to put it away unexpectedly because you can just pick it straight back up again from where you left off. Definately MY kind of blanket!
There are 17 scrummy colours in all...........it looks so happy and stripey I love it! I wish I had started it sooner as I've been umming and arring for a while and considering whether it would be right to have a go at what seems like someone elses hard work but I'm glad I finally did after all.
