its nearly march!

Hello again!
Once again the weather has changed here in good old Blighty!
Its has been very warm and sunny, Spring is definitely here!
I have had a stinking cold for a week so haven't been as busy as usual and sometimes its good to just snuggle under the duvet and get Mr CM to bring me lots of hot tea!  Which he does on a very regular basis when I'm feeling unwell!  He is a trooper!

Last week Son No. 2 and his partner went for scan for baby No.2 .  It turns out the baby is a Boy!  We are so pleased to be having a Grandson.  We have our two lovely Granddaughters and now a boy to add to the mix.  Lovely! The Baby will come in June so I have time to make him some squiggies and softies!

So here are the things that have kept me busy for the past two weeks.  I completed Mr Twizzle for my Nephew.  Its now the toy of choice and accompanies him most places.

I had a order for a knitted Peppa Pig and so i spent some of the time knitting her up!  I was very please with the way this turned out.  It has to be one of my best makes so far.  I love it!

Mr Twizzle. A order from my nephew! 
 I also crocheted up some bunting as a birthday present for my niece.  She has so many toys that i wanted to make her something a little different.  She was eased with it anyway.  Now to start the Red White and Blue for the Jubilee celebrations!

I had seen this flower tutorial on Lucy,s Blog find it here! 
She has such amazing makes and everything is just so well made and pretty.  I love checking in on her blog!  If you haven't found her before take a look now.  I promise you wont be disappointed!

So this is my take on the flower.  Made in my favourite two colours and is destined for a place in our bedroom.

Well I guess its time to go.
Have a fun weekend what ever you are doing
Bye for now

Hello everyone!
wow how the weather has changed! Its so cold. I wont post pictures of the snow here as its pretty much the same everywhere!  We have had My littlest sister and her family staying for a few days.  Princess has loved having a playmate and its been good catching up with my sister.  Although going back to having a two year old in the house is a bit of a change!
So what have I been up to I hear you ask? Knitting mostly, with a bit of crochet thrown in for a change about!

I sent a parcel of to Preemies UK.  A couple of blankets and lots of baby Hats  for  use by the special care unit in hospitals.  From now on any Premature Knitting I do will be sent to my local Hospital.

 I made the Peppa Pig for a little girl.  Her Mummy ordered it for her birthday and I hope she likes it!
It turned out really good and I'm very pleased with it.

 On the knitting needles now are a Jumper for Princess, No make that two Jumpers for Princess!  and Raa Raa the Lion.  For those of you who dont have access to a two year old,  this is Raa Raa!

He is a noisy Lion who enjoys having fun with his friends!  Believe me after listening to the theme tune a couple of times you will be singing it all day! 

Well I'm off now.
Keep safe and warm where ever you are
Bye for now


Hi Lovelies! You know, I was reminded this week how life is so precious.  We get one shot at it and we aren't like cats and have nine...
