Bits and Pieces...

Well it's been nearly a week since we drew our giveaway, Janelle's bag is on it's way to New Jersey USA, I know you'll enjoy it Nise.

So what's been happening around here?  A few bit's and pieces.

I started the week with the new Ikea catalogue, a nice cuppa and a 5 minute chocolate cake that Janelle told me I had to try, who am I to argue!

The finished project that I showed you a sneak peek of a while back is almost finished.  It's a beautiful stitchery project Janelle and I started while she was over in Melbourne back in July.   I haven't decided if it's going to be a wall hanging or I may frame it??

It is taken from the book "Gift" by Rosalie Quinlan, a beautiful book that Katherine and I were privileged to attend the launch of recently.  Janelle and I both have a signed copy and it is full of gorgeous projects to try.

The other little project that I've been working on lately are Sock Monkeys, they are so much fun and really quick and easy to make.  I now find myself looking at socks in a whole new light.  While lazing on the couch in my jammies and socks the other night  my DH came by and commented "Oooh look, sock monkeys in their natural habitat", smarty pants.

Some time ago I purchased a pattern by Indygo Junction for this gorgeous yo yo puppy.  She was supposed to be a gift for my new niece (sorry Jasmine) but I just couldn't part with her.  I will have to have another go at this and maybe get one done by Christmas...

There's lot's of other little and big projects on the go here at the moment, they'll have to wait until next time...

Have a great weekend everyone, isn't the sunshine today absolutely marvelous, it really is nearly Spring, Yeah!

Love :)Kylie
