Happy Dancing



You know that I make things for my children and myself but what about hubby? He is my most avid fan so I just had to start something especially for him.
Even though we're nearing the end of Winter but it's better late than never. I searched for a scarf pattern and found this cutie. It's the Irish Hiking Scarf and my first cable ever.
But I didn't have a dpn so I improvised and made one of my own out of this bamboo skewer which was really close in size to my size 4 knitting needles.
I must say it's incredibly easy to do but it's just taking forever to finish.
Plus I keep forgetting what row I am up to... is there an easy way to do this?

What fabric ban? Some lovelies arrived today from Sew Mama Sew.


Japanese Folklore by Lecien.
I'm thinking this will be my backpack tote.

Pussy Willow in Cream - Full Bloom
Definately for Little Miss' birthday dress in September.
Butterflies on Cream - Porcelina
A cute little lazy days skirt for this summer.
Other great news... I won a complimentary ticket from Fiona of dearfii for the Stitches and Craft show next week. I am soooo excited! I didn't have to twist my sister's arm to come along (ah-hum babysit) with me.
So if you're going to be there next week at Rosehill look out for a big fat tired but excited pregnant woman with two little bubs in tow. Say hello!!! Hopefully, one of them would have fallen asleep for a duration of my time there to make life a little easier.
This past week we've been reflecting on our family and the graces we've been given. Bubs #3 is doing just dandy and hopefully will be introduced some time in 9weeks time. We've taken time out to tell each other we still *love* each other and we're so blessed to have a happy healthy family. We hope you are doing the same. XOX
