Made a few things this week and got some new supplies (oops). Heard that John Lewis was having a sale, so went to have a look and ended up buying a lot. I really should not take my debit card when I go out!!

Here are some pics of the things I was busy with this week. I crocheted a box (pattern from Simply crochet) and knitted two cloths to put in it for my daughter's teacher as a end of year gift. My daughter loved it (she is still waiting for her socks, though).

And of course, a picture of my new stash of yarn.

There is also a picture of my other new hobby, making ring slings for babies. I loved this material when I saw it and makes the slings look so lovely.

This week has been busy, but have managed to finish some things. Here is a picture of the dolls dress I have finished.

I have also been trying patterns in a new book I bought, my mom has the slippers now.
I have started knitting some barbie furniture and going to crochet a box to fill with goodies for my daughters teacher as an end of school year gift, so got my new projects all sorted. Apart from the sewing and embroidery I have been playing around with on my new machine. It took me a few tries but I finally managed to embroider a picture that actually looked like something (well, to me anyway.) I might take a photo of something and post it soon.

The beginning

This is my spot where I can show off (mmm) the things I have been working on and letting everyone know what is happening in my life.
