A new cape for ted.

hello and happy Sunday to you lovely friends.  For a little while I wanted to make Ted a cape, this week I found a spare hour and made one. Doesn't She look sweet?  Just like a cute little red riding hood going to visit grandma :)

Teds getting so many outfits i think She needs her very own wardrobe and hangers, maybe my next project :)

last week~catch up.

Hello again,
the past week my son started his first full time job! It was pretty nerve wracking for him and me :) His job is around 45 minute s from home and involves a motorway drive and it a really busy part of the M4. He passed his test over a year ago but hasn't driven motorways at all since really.  I' ve been praying a lot .  This week s been better,he s grown in confidence in the job and journey already,thank goodness. He takes after me and lacks confidence ,a little ...

Last week I forgot to tell you I've a new baby niece ,Lara, She's 3 months now and absolutley gorgeous.

My latest crochet applique is of Ted :)  To celebrate my love of teddies especially Ted!  I've also joined up 2 more rows for my crochet mood blanket, I'm still 70 squares behind though.

The weather has been so hot and we ve has no rain for almost 2 weeks,I must take some pictures of the garden for you next as everything is blooming lovely.

I hope everyone reading is well and thankyou to all who wrote on my last post ,I think I ve replied personally to everyone.
Take care, lots of love,

Crochet mood blanket 2014.

Hello ladies, just a little update on the crochet mood blanket,  Ive  caught up again and up to 45 on day 45!

Weather here has been awful,we are very lucky with no flooding but had  over 100mph winds and very heavy rain and hailstones.  Yesterday was a day to stay in and catch up on my crochet and drink lots of tea.

We've  been renovating our bathroom and its caused so much mess ,I can hardly think straight, its nearly finished now. I shall share some photos when all finished.

Back soon,lots of love,xxx
