Lots Of Randomness

Remember Freya from my little giveaway , well she was the only little one left so I put her in my Etsy shop and now she is on her way to America - my first Etsy sale, I was so pleased I had a smile on my face all day . Thank you so much Sarah.



Right at the end of last month the lovely Gemma from Deravelled gave me this award. Thank you so much Gemma, it,s very much appreciated. In return I'd like to pass this award to everyone who commented on my last post .

I don't get to spend that much one on one time with Milo , so last Sunday when G was asleep and Hub was at work we decided to make some yarn baskets following this tutorial from Lesley.



They did take a couple of days to dry properly . No idea what they will be used for but we had messy fun making them..



Now I have still managed to do some crafting but can't show you much yet I'm afraid . I can show you this cowl though. It's for an aunt of mine who hasn't been too well lately. And I'm saying nothing about the scowl!!!



Is anyone else's Christmas Poinsettia still going strong , I've never had one last this long before?

This is for Emma who commented on my last post , I wanted to answer but you have a ' no reply ' option set . Yes it is Kemps but the library is Kayll Road. Unfortunately they knocked Grindon down a few years ago, it was my childhood library too....

If you haven't yet looked for your house on Google maps Streetview I suggest you do -- mine isn't on there yet but I know a few people who've put in their address and up pops their house on the screen - it's a bit scary!!

Think I'll sign off with another Milo-ism from today.

Milo -- mammy you smell delicious
Me -- thank you baby
Milo -- Just like a Pizza .

Oh well ...

LOL - loving Milo's 'compliment'. I also love those yarn bowls - I'm going to have to click over and see how to make those.

Congrats on your first Etsy sale, and your award: very much deserved.

Oops, sorry about the no reply option, I didn't do it on purpose, but I'm not sure how to leave you my email (I don't blog). I'm sorry to hear about Grindon library - I spent ages there before walking through barnes park extension to my aunt's for afternoon tea. I'm not in the area any more, but my parents are still local and Kemps is always first port of call.

Kim McBirnie said...

Every Christmas my husband asks me if I'm going to get the usual sacreficial poinsettia this year? So I didn't get one this time - felt too guilty! Did I get the right person in sunnies on facebook or was it some random stranger?!

Kellie said...

Well done with your bunny she was very cute! When Meg was very little she once told Sid "Daddy when Mummy checks on me late at night she has such delicious breath ... just like lollies!!" ... mmm I wonder why??? Shame I also have a lollie bag figure! ;)

retrorose said...

Mmm...just like a pizza, you are right, you just have to write those down. His cowl scowl is hilarious. I need your help thinking up some ideas for what to do with something on my blog. I would appreciate you joining in (and anyone else) as you have good ideas. Gx

Rachael Rabbit said...

I love the yarn basket project!! I love Milo's scowl in the cowl .... cute as well as rhyming genius ;-)

sarahmurray said...

Hi Lisa! I can't wait to get my little bear in the mail. :) I want to keep her in my sewing room but have a feeling she might be snatched by a couple of bear loving girls. Your cowl is gorgeous, as is Milo's expression. He is cuter than cute. x

Leanne said...

That Milo is a treasure and I don't think you had better put any liquid in those bowls.

louise said...

Those yarn baskets are great, they look pretty practical too. Milo looks great modelling the cowl, and you smell great as a pizza! I hope there are lots more Etsy sales in the pipeline. x
