A gift for you this Christmas

It is the season of giving and I am giving one of my fellow crafters
a chance to win the pattern of their choice on Ravelry.
It can be a knitting pattern, crochet pattern, baby pattern, jumper pattern etc etc 
Any pattern.
Your choice of pattern.
How ace is that!
How to enter? It is super easy, just go here ........ to enter!
It is my way of giving back to you, for sharing the crafty love with me this year.
Merry Christmas to you & your family.
I hope that you have a lovely day surrounded with laughter & warmth.
Hugs, Rie.
 btw... did you want to see our Christmas tree? 
Here it is.... 

A bloom for my blossom!

Hey!  Would you like to see what I made for this lil monster....

Quick, I need your help!

I received this Advent Calendar in the mail last week, yes I know we are 'almost there' but I can still sew it up & make the place look pretty ...  and that way it's ready for next year too.  I just can't decide on the order of the days  .. random, up&down or sidetoside ... help!

Taa daa: The Secret Stash

It twas the night before ... arghh no, to tell you the truth, it was 3 days before I had to put my secret santa pressie into the sack but what was I going to make?  Yep, it was my big idea that we had to make our secret santa pressies as it was for knitting group & well, the whole idea that we get together was to make stuff wasn't it?!   Then BAMMMM, an idea but would it work???

this & that

Hey ho!  How are you? Are you more ho than hey?  Are you already over the 'season'??
I'm not really focused on the Christmas bit yet, the advent calendar (above) is the only thing I've done/started for the house as it's bubba Joe's birthday next week and well, my focus has been on my lil boy and the fact that he is starting school next year!  Yep, my lil baby boy will be in kindergarten next year.. sob, how time has flown!

Catching up on my mood!

So, did you think that I'd forgotten about my crochet mood blanket?  Sometimes I had... sometimes I do a square or two and sometimes I catch up!

People & planning

Have you thought ahead to next year? Do you use a planner, a diary or a calendar?
I started using a planner/diary this year for all things me and then I use a calendar (in the kitchen) for all things family.
I've been searching the internet trying to find the perfect planner to use in 2015 - I have a preference for spiral bound as I like the planner to lay flat. Do you have a preference, do you have any suggestions for me?
