A blanket, a scarf, some gorgeous booties and a pin holder..

yep that's what I've been doing this cute are these little booties??? I downloaded the free pattern from Heather Bailey.. they are made from an old jumper. The scarf knitted for Ds - he choose the wool from all the colours at spotlight - well pink is cool for boys right??? I did talk him out of the sparkly pink one ..The little birdie book is from scraps of felt for my "special pins.(yes my life is so sad that I have "special" pins)..and the blanket I bought fron Vinnies for $4!!!(did you think I whipped it up in a week????) how could you give that away - Ds claimed it straight away.

I have also been sewing for DD's school concert - and I managed to do something that I have never done before...sewed over my finger on the sewing machine. Wouldn't recommend it. Ouch - lots of blood (didn't get any on the costumes though!) -a savoury word or two - and a few Simpsons bandaids later I think I will probably live.

A couple of days away..

and a couple of layouts later..
have had a bit of a break visiting some friends at the
Sunshine Coast. It's nice to have a break from the day to day.. Little Clancy is growing fast - now 16 weeks - smiling, laughing and rolling front his tummy to back - he is just GORGEOUS!! His eyes are still very blue - so it will be interesting to see if they stay that way - DD's turned brown at nearly 2 years.
