Wip, Finish & Birthday

The first is an update of my Cosy Blanket, which is almost finished.  I have 14 rows and the border to go, am hoping to have it finished this week, should take me long I hope.  Guy keeps pestering for me to get it done Laugh out loud.  It covers my sofa nicely, but I have Coastal Blanket for the sofa to crack on with when I've finished Cosy.
This next piece was for a Round Robin that I am currently in, with some friends thro Crafty Kitten.  This is for Charlie Hayter's Garden Theme.  I was going to do the butterflies on Queen Mariposa, but I just couldn't afford what I needed to stitch and bead her, so I opted for Sabrina, and her beautiful rose, that she is holding.  Charlie, I sure hope you like what I have done.  Posting it next week.  I just have to wait for Dawn's Halloween Piece.

This is my Birthday Present from My Sis Viki Edwards, I received this lovely surprise in the post, and can't wait to start her, I still need  aloud of the beads and some threads, but I have picked out the fabric, so is almost ready for a new start.  But I must remember no new starts just yet, need to get some wipe finished first.
This last pic is of some beautiful orchids, that my friend Carol gave me, I love orchids, just never had any before.  The Colour is one of my favs.

I also received Marks & Spencers Vouchers from my Parents and my handsome boys, and also a voucher from Sew&so, from my lovely friend Michelle.  Thank you everyone, I had a quiet but productive day, even tho I was a wee bit bored lol.

Hopefully I will have a crochet Happy Dance before the week is out, and a WIP update on January Garnet too.

Thank you for my lovely Birthday wishes, made my day.  The boys are on half term this week, sadly Mark is full of a cold and cough, just hope it clears it up before the boys go to their Dads on Thursday morning.

Have a great week my friends, take care for now

Hi everyone

Tomorrow I am birthday Girl, and will post some piccies over the coming week/weekend.  I've finished my Bolero Jacket and am currently working on a Round Robin that I am doing thro Crafty Kitten Fabrics.

Still not on FB, been a month now, and still single lol.  Its been a blessing, now I can relax and be myself, hopefully one day Mr Right will arrive, but I am NOT rushing I promise.

Hope everyone one is well

Hugs n' Luv

The last few days of Updates

Update on January Garnet, she is coming along nicely and slowly.  Hoping to have an update of her before the weekend is out
The next pic is of mine and the boys favourite naughty snack, I call it my Crunchie, Peanut, Chocolate slab cake (not that it is cake), it is very delicious.  Next thing to make is Red Velvet Cupcakes and some cookies for the kids 
This next piece is a Bolero Jacket, I am knitting up, I'm half way thro my second sleeve and hoping to have it finished by tonight
An update on Guy's lovely Crochet Blanket, he's pestering me to get it finished, which I am hoping to do over the next couple of weeks.   only have 31 rows to go and the border.
It's been a very quiet weekend of me not feeling to well, but I am feeling a lot better, altho I have frozen shoulder at the moment and have had it for a few weeks now, it is getting better, good job I can still drive, otherwise those kids would not get to school on time lol.

The boys go to their Dads on Thursday night until Monday, when they will be coming home to me after school.  My parents are going to be popping over to see me this coming weekend, to bring me my Birthday pressie, and to bring over some crafty things, that use to be belong to my Grandmother, who is in a home.  Am looking forward to some me time with my parents, we have only done it a couple of times, after I split from ex Hubby, this is the first time in 2 yrs that they have come here, so I can save my pennies on fuel, so that I can move homes.  I will still be in the Somerset area, but nearer to Bristol, as I would like to be nearer to the boys schools. 

Hope everyone had a fab weekend and will post some more updates later in the week, or may have to wait until next week.  Take care my lovely friends
