 Today I celebrated my birthday with a little hooky!Yesterday I finished my most recent project pictured below,a grey sparkly snood.I pinned it out on the floor yesterday to shape it and then I was left feeling just a little at a loss as to what to do next so I hooked up the above jar jacket last night and finished it today.
 I'm feeling rather smug with myself for having completed two hooky projects in just one weekend.Oooh what to do next?Perhaps some granny bunting in red,white and blue for the queens jubilee?Or a cushion in a similar design to the above jar jacket,as I'm really liking the style.Soo many idea's and not enough time to create.
 One of my birthday presents this cute little owl cushion,I've been wanting one for quite a while!
 And some lovely plant's from the kid's and a very nice dish to stand them in.
 A little colour added to the kitchen window sill . . . . . . .spring is on it's way,the morning's are starting to get much lighter and the sun even showed for a short while this afternoon.
 Alice's homemade wrapping paper,she drew all the thing's that I apparently like!
 And last weekend Alice did some paper crafting with her brother Hamish,the results were really lovely so I decided to display them on the living room door.
 I really love all the sparkle,Hamish's didn't turn out quite so well as he went a little mad with the pva glue and  not quite so mad with the glitter which isn't like him at all!

A cosy night in!

 I've spent a nice quiet weekend in trying to get on with this crochet blanket that I started last summer,I have to say this is my first ever large crochet blanket.My very first crochet blanket was for Alice's doll's.Progress is slow I keep picking it up and putting it down in between smaller projects,and now I've taken to doing a few stripes every night.The problem is I'm just not sure how big to make it!
 All this hooky by candle-light,cosy by the stove.It's been quite cold here this weekend,the last two morning's have been frosty and white over.
And I treated myself to a little winter cheer,these lovely tulip's . . . . . . . .oh and some wool which is already a hooky work in progress,a lovely light grey wool with sequin's soft and stroke-able.You'll have to wait and hopefully it won't be too long and I can show you ;-).

1st finish for 2012!

My first finish for 2012!And I am really pleased with the result's,for sometime now I've been threatening to make a purse for my crochet hooks to go in,as it get's a little tiring when I keep misplacing them!As a matter of fact due to the fact that I have mislaid them on more than one occasion I have been out and bought duplicates of the sizes that I use the most.
 I made this little purse from my most favourite thing's!
So if you don't already recognise the fabric it's Cath Kidston and I have a bit of a thing about yo-yo's,button embellishments and ric-rac.
