for starters I have a sweet little cherry teacup pincushion (thats now my loungeroom one) and a Heather Bailey pincushion in cherries!!
then this! man this is super uber cool as, hehe
Its a folder for keeping all my recipes in, decked out in, you guessed it, CHERRIES!
its for turning our life into a healthy one. I can find good recipes and put them in here for safe keeping. Suitable for meal planning and everything!
if anyone is able to find that teapot in an actual teapot, please let me know, I'd love it!!


my friends the enablers.... lol

We bought fatbeard the pirate a Nintedo Ds for his 37th yesterday. It is now all he will pay attention to pft!
but my parteners in crime made him the very spesh carrier for his one and only, lol, On the inside it has pockets for games :D
he is very happy indeed with it!

PIF goodness!!
oh you got to love getting things in the mail you forgot were coming!

Can't you tell I LOOOve cherries

thanks so much to the WONDERFUL goddess Tam from blakeandboo

well what a find!!
A My Child 88 Ultralong!
sorting through the e lost property out the back of a classroom at DS#3's school, walked back through the classroom to the door, spotted a hand poking 'out of the toybox!!
so after some negotiations about swapping a bundle of toys I have for her, shes now living here. Shes been played with by many a preppie, so shes dirty as buggery, but Im working hard to get her back to splendid :)

well, Im doomed. I've been trying to knit this Oriental Lily pattern to no avail. Yes the knitting is going right, but the colours are ALL WRONG... comes out like an 80's reject knit :(
Don't get me wrong, I love the wool, but this is not what it was destined to be for sure.

trouble is I have this lush wool from the wonderful Anne over at Ladybug loops and Im thinking it would be perfect for the top, but Im currently knitting longies with it :( sure its just the waistband and a small bit of the bottom done, but I HATE frogging anything.
might just have to.....sook sook...

Iv'e got way too many knitting projects in the running and a few on the cards to start. Why can't I have more arms or faster knitting techniques?

Introducing...... Space man.

ok, I thought I'd introduce the family one by one.
This is spaceman, he's newly a teenager (we've yet for the joys of testosterone to truly kick in and turn him into a troll/hobbit like creature) and he's loving the notoriety I believe.
He's a bit of a space-nut, but at least he has an interest, hehe.
Year 8 at school, and doing great, not yet interested in girlies, but then again, like he is agoing to announce that to us. As the oldest kid of the clan, hes not really going to be totally nice to his younger brothers, but I guess we do ok with him.

I will post pics soon of the new additions.

ok, I've joined two "a-longs" a sew-a-long and a knit-a-long.
the sew-a-long is wild-flower-pincushion which is going to look uber cool :)
the knit-a-long is a headband of which I chose Calorimetry pattern out of the two on offer.
I wil post pics as they are done :D.

ok, so the week is done, Quinten is now 9 weeks old, and Alex is 13. The youngest and the eldest.
We went out to dinner last night as Alex wanted to, and V actually walked through a crowded restaurant with his pants down to his ankles. Geez man, and no-one looked until Nick started yelling at him, so that was great too................NOT.
I've finished knitting Quin's wolly wrap, but I haven't taken any pics yet, so I will add them in the hext few days. I've started Lilli's longies, so that's going to be an endurance test hehe.

well I finally finished the Deep Red tiKKi dress I'd been knitting. The 100g for the body was a little short, so its more like a top than an actuall dress, but Lilli is not too tall yet, so still may work as a dress, I've not tried it on her yet. Im very happy with how the two wool colour ways blended together, they are a perfect match for each other. I love Ladybug loops wool!
