Meet Ups, Presents and a Bargain..

Yesterday I had a lovely day , I had a bloggy meet up with not just one but two lovely ladies. We met at our local museum , which was a good place as not only did it have a cafe where we had cake ( the least said about Milo spitting out the cake back onto the plate that wasn't his the better ) but there was also lots to entertain the kids and seeing as how we had seven between us that was a good thing. Ten points if you can guess who they are ??



Tomorrow or today in Australia is the birthday of a fantastic lady who I'm so pleased to call a very good friend . This is a special birthday so I wanted a special present for her - for weeks I racked my little brain thinking of what I could make for her and this is what I came up with



I have never done any stitching like this before so I'd like to say thank you to Maree for answering all my dumb stitchery questions even though she didn't have a clue what I was doing. The circles are Kaffe Fassett with raw edge applique..

I've also finished a couple of rabbits, first is Sally who loves strawberries



and Patsy who is always game for a laugh , hence the wonky ears



Oh , you want to know who my meet up was with , you thought I'd forgotten didn't you -- well the two lovely ladies were Mrs Locket and Mrs Sarah's House . Hopefully we'll be able to meet up again soon girls .

Did you get your 10 points?

Now I'm off to play with these --- Rowan luxury cotton DK at only £1.39 a ball. How could I resist such a bargain ???

Where where where did you get the Rowan DK??? I've started crochet and am going through yarn like it's going out of fashion. We live on a fairly direct route to the Rowan workshop at Holmfirth, and am considering a run out there.... Still haven't managed to catch up with you via FB, but will soon! Kim xx
