Snuggly and Warm

Well i have in fact finished two projects that were on the needles.

I have finished the fingerless mitts that were on the needles for Dh so now his hands are much warmer at work!

I have also finished this gorgeous car seat blanket for a friend!

here it is all bundled up ready to be sent when we have heard the baby has arrived!

Oh dear I started off with lots of goof intention to make pancakes. The batter was mixed and put int he fridge.

When Children came home from school along with Husband it was the idea that I woudl cook pancakes before I went out to DS 1's parents evening.

Well I know that I am still learning to cook but pancakes have eluded me.

After about 5 disastrous pancakes I gave in and let DH take over as he is soooo much better at making them than I .

Do you like my new jug courtesy of the British heart Foundation Charity shop in town?

It is gorgeous and it will increase my shabby chic bit and bobs that I am accquiring!

I see blue sky!

From where I am sitting at the computer in our bedroom I can see the palest of blue skies.

Hopefully this means that spring is starting to peek through and show it's face. The weather is still cold, very cold although sitting inside the kitchen under the beaming rays of the sun almost makes your heart sing as it won't be long till "being" outside becomes a distinct possibility.

How is the use up campaign going? I hear you ask!

Well, apart from the fact that I have bought 700g of wool I am doing really well. I would do better if I could actually finish something before starting something else.

Currently on the needles there are:-

A baby Blanket
A pair of fingerless gloves
A cushion cover, this is crocheted so not on the needles but on the hook.

Hopefully I will be able to finish the fingerless gloves tonight as DH needs them for work.
