A few weeks ago we were offered the chance to be in a new craft magazine called Mollie Makes mama. It is a lovely magazine so of course we grabbed the opportunity. Although the section isn't big, we are still in a magazine. We are on page 13 in the magazine. How exciting is that! It is now for sale. I am getting excited just thinking about it! We were called bloggers to watch and super talented. Yay!
As it was my birthday on Tuesday, I got a few knit related presents. I got a new Arne and Carlos book called garden knits. It's also a crochet book which I am hoping to learn soon ( fingers crossed!) It has some really lovely things in it. I especially like some of the garden characters! My favourite characters are the mice. I also really love the knitted handles for the little spades and the lovely crocheted blanket. Will need to learn to crochet before I can make the blanket though!
They are all done. I cannot crochet yet, so my friend's mum has crocheted them all. Yippee!! If you have a look at the photos at the bottom you will see her in action on one of the first few. It has just hit me that we have less than two weeks to go. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! Now I am getting worried! I hope I have done enough. I have to start thinking how I am going to present them. There is a trug which they have been sitting in since the start which may be the easier option!! It really feels like Christmas now. Only 34 days to wait!
Who knew knitting could be so tiring?! I feel exhausted! I think that I am going to start sewing up soon as possible, as I have only got three weeks to go! It may sound a bit early to start, but I have got 32 to sew up! It's going to be an extreme sewing up job! I am going to do one more week of knitting and then I am going to go straight to sewing up. I might even start doing a few tonight while watching T.V. I don't know whether I have made enough yet. Starting to panic about not getting everything done. Wish me luck!
Next week is my birthday so hoping to get lots of lovely knitting stuff too!
Have a nice week!
