Ewan just turned 6 and being animal mad of course he requested a termite mound cake!! - what else would a 6 year old want????
It took much sweating and swearing!! and did end up looking rather rude, but he seemed pleased with it, and it tasted good which is all i care about!

Seepy Sheep

I made this little guy for my sister using this pattern
The pattern was really easy to follow, and it only took me 2 evenings to make - i have a feeling it would have been even quicker but for the evil chenille-type yarn i chose to use!! It was almost impossible to see the stitches, and if i pulled it too tight it snapped, so many swear words later i finished him! Now i just hope Laura likes him.

Topsy Turvy

I made this doll a little while ago for Evie but have only just got round to adding hair and taking photos.
Here she is wide awake and ready for fun;
Flip her skirt over, and she's fast asleep
I based the face loosely on the clown doll here, but the body and clothes i just sort of winged, which caused much swearing and ripping of seams but Evie likes her and thats all that matters!

Long time no post!

Well its been a while......

Still crocheting, my sister just had a little girl yesterday and i finished this little blanket up for her a few weeks ago

Hopefully i'll be able to give it to her in a few days, just waiting to see if the kids have the dreaded chicken pox - there have been a few suspect spots on both of them, but fingers crossed, they haven't got worse so far......

I've also made this little lady for Evie for Christmas

I really can't wait to give it to her, she's in to all things mermaid at the moment so i hope she'll love it.

I actually won!!!!
Had the BEST letter this morning; Heinz sent me a letter confirming i had won their 'Mums Own' baby food competition - my Bubble + Squeak is being made into baby food!! and will be on sale from July, just in time for my friend Anna, who had a little boy in April - how cool!
They even sent me an example of the label (which they used the worst picture of me on- ho hum) see;

I cant begin to imagine how much it will freak me out to see my own face on the shelf next time i pop to the supermarket!!!!

Who could resist these eyes...

..Meet Rah (named by Evie)

He's only a few hours old, i finished him last night!
I think he's bored of having his photo taken now...

I found the pattern for this little fella on crochetville. It was really easy to make and only took me 2 evenings. I used a multi blue DK and love how it looks like little scales all over him. Unfortunately Ewan doesn't approve and wants a 'proper' full size red one! No idea how big a full size one is, buut something tells me that 2 balls of DK won't do it!!!

Amazing what fun they can have with 2 blankets!

Blankets supplied by my nan!

Introducing.... the snail!

Only took me 2 evenings! But perhaps you can tell so i shouldnt admit to that!!
He's all worked in a spiral, with Ewan's favourite googly eyes. He must be a hit because Ewan actually took him into school and stood at the front of class to show him off - believe me, for Ewan, that is a BIG thing!

And just in case you wondered, this is what a snails bum looks like.....
