Well, what a week it's been . Where do I start ?
Sunday night we tucked Milo up in his new bed ( passed down from his cousin ) which is about 3ft off the floor with new duvet and duvet cover ( quilt still not finished ). It's 1am and all hell breaks loose as I'm woken by hysterical screaming, thinking he had fallen out of bed I ran into his room , no Milo, where the hell was he? Found on the stairs vomiting everywhere, new bed , duvet cover all had been christened too!!!. This continued through the night but by 12pm the next day he was right as rain whereas I was flaked out on the sofa unable to move. I had to get Hub to come home from work as I couldn't even get the top off the milk bottle. 24 hours later I was fine too. Germs are horrible , nasty things which are not welcome in this house. Baby G also has germs - which reminds me . I need to get more nappies !!!
I have still managed to get a few crafty things done though , a few dishclothes as Christmas presents.
Santa - can you make him out?
Little house in the woods
The patterns I got from here, and I've just noticed that she has posted some thanksgiving patterns too.
This little chap was sent across the world for Josh's birthday , I can post the pics now he's been recieved.
I promise you that I did follow the pattern exactly and have no idea as to why the trunk turned out absolutely huge. Don't think I dare mention what Hub said about it - but I'm sure some of you can guess...
There is a new charity shop that has recently opened near to where I live. If you had came in the other day you would have seen me on my hands and knees, bum in the air crawling about under the trouser rack into the hidden depths to find treasure. Two files full of knitted toy patterns with goodies from Jean Greenhowe and Alan Dart amongst others. Some of the patterns were so old the prices were pre decimal. I just about ran home so I could have a proper look, there were lots of ooh and aahhs I can tell you The problem is I can't decide what to knit first?
Isn't Brock just a proper old english gentleman?
There were about 20 sewing patterns for dolls clothes but I just picked a few of these. I'm thinking now I should have taken a photo of each individual pattern as you can't really see them on this one - oh well.
The one bottom left is for draught excluders which are so cute. I also got a brand new packet of dressmakers tracing paper and 3 new reading books for the boys.
All of this cost me just £4 - do you think I got a bargain.... I do .
Have a lovely weekend and I hope the germs stay away from everyone.
