Another Busy Week

Phew! It's been another busy week.
At the beginning of the week, I discovered who my partner was for All4meggymoo's heart swap. I've been partnered with the lovely Jille and have been busily collecting bits and bobs for the swap this week.
It was my lovely mum's birthday on Friday so presents were crafted and wrapped and a cake was made (and eaten!)

I also managed to whip up another cowl this week in this GoRgEoUs green colour.

Baked some Snickerdoodles too this week for the first time, they were very yummy!

On Saturday I went on my beginners sewing machine course.
I had a fabulous day and made this beautiful bag! Very pleased with myself.

Today I got my sewing machine out and made a couple of lavender hearts.

Also managed to make a batch of brownies for pud tonight too.

Have you been busy?

It's the Weekend!

Yay! And we have snow! Do you?
I LoVe snow, but only for the first couple of hours

This week has been a crafty and baking kind of week.
Planning and making some swap gifts
Continuing with my ever growing list of WIPs

Starting new projects - tut tut
a pretty cover for my Kindle

And a spot of baking thrown in

These are chocolate and white chocolate chunk fairy buns - and very yummy they were too

Hope you've all had a lovely week

Hello 2013

I'm back! 
Hello lovelies!
Did you miss me? Ive missed you and am looking forward to getting back into the bloggy swing of things over the next few weeks.
I hope you all had a magical Christmas and the start of the new year has been good to you.
We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and we are gradually getting back to our day to day routine.
I'm not very good with resolutions (I seem to fail quite miserably) but this year I have set myself some goals (see, taking a different approach here, in the hope I can fulfil them!)
1. I aim to teach myself to knit (with a little help from my lovely mummy)

2. I aim to visit the library more (I buy far to many books!)

3. I am on Mission crochet cushion covers

4. Trying to eat more healthily and get more exercise (not sure about this one!)

5. Start a bit of cross stitch

6. Learn to machine sew - Hubby paid for me to go on a one day sewing course at the end of this month, I am tres excited!

7. Learn so new crochet techniques - I have started with Amigurumi

Have you got any goals for 2013?
Little Miss celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday.  3 - I can't quite believe it, where does time go?


I think she had a magical day
