2009 blogging has not got off to a good start! Maybe it's because i've been busy doing other things ;)
So to start, here are a few January layouts....
I loved using my ScrapRoom Christmas kit! And I do really love these Christmas photos.
More Jan layouts tomorrow!
I've been knitting up a storm and even managed a shawl that had a pattern. I am more of a plain knit girl, but thought I would give it a try and was impressed with myself. It's been washed and is drying right now, hence no photo but I will share!
The pattern is from the Rowan cocoon book in Lavender Ice, and it's really easy.
After knit and Chat at Jolie last Tuesday I bought two balls of kidsilk haze and made a quick (like two nights and size 10 needles quick) scarf :)
Stuart also got a scarf made from 3 balls of wool that I had laying around. It's chunky and was super quick to knit on big fat needles.
I'm still trying to find that internet/cooking/housework/relaxing/work balance but working on it, so hopefully I will see a result soon.
Upcoming projects......Mum bought over on her last trip some Rowan cotton glace, and I am planning some crochet cushions for the outside plastic furniture. I want to add some colour to the garden and I always feel that I need something soft to sit on out there!!
Of course as the weather improves I know that I need to give the garden my full attention. Yesterday Stuart and I did a mamoth tidy up and cleared a space for the chickens. He is going to build them a house and then fence it into a run for them. He is also going to extend my veg patch which will be lovely!
But for now I am nursing aching leg muscles so I will say ciao till tomorrow!
