One egg, one book.

Talk to me, I'm curious about what traditions you have in your family. Do you have any? What kind are they? Are these 'new' traditions or something passed down through your family?
You see, having such a young family (a 4yo & a 1yo), we have this chance to start our own family traditions but geesh, you think that coming up with such wonderful things would be easy but nope!  This is where I'd like your opinions, feedback & suggestions on what you do & if you could, would you change it?

Have you seen this website called Minted? It has the cutest art prints like the one above and the ones below.
I am particulary taken with this one (below) as it's something I chant every time I step out of the front door & I've noticed my husband does it too!  Do you have a similar chant?

Some things

I've not been doing anything exciting lately, have you?  I play in the garden with Joe & Delaney then feed, bathe & bed them...repeat.  Sometimes I get my act together and have spare time where I can play with my things (and not their toys!).  See the piccie above, it's yarn that I dyed. Do you like it? I am totally chuffed with it and I have big plans for it!

Stitchy stuff & a winner


I'm using the cutest box to store the supplies and (hopefully) inspire me on my Sampler Blanket journey throughout the year, the box is actually made from cardboard!

Show us your block

Gosh, 28 days didn't last long did they!  February was a big month in my household for my family. You see, February saw my lil boy starting his very first day of school, therefore starting our family on a new schedules, routines & of course school lunches. Also, not to be outdone by her big brother, baby Laney started walking that same week!  So you see, February 2015 was a big one for me and I may have not completed as much as my blanket as I had hoped!

Something to stop my twiddling thumbs!

I have this weird thing going on where I just can't sit there & NOT have a crochet blanket on the go. I don't know why, it's not like I need another blanket as I have a trunk full of them!

Knitty news, nice stuff & a winner!

This is the yarn for my VAL, do you like it? It's soft & squishy and I'm having fun playing with it.  Maybe you would like to see what it knits up like?  Hmm??

Ready, set....... VAL!

Hello and Happy Valentines day to you!   Are you starting the VAL today?  Are you getting any 'love' today? (erk, please don't go into too many details!!) I thought I'd share some love with you & some goodness.

Hearts of string & glue

Do you like my row of hearts?  They are super quick & easy to make, you'll wonder why you haven't made some yourself.
