i have a mouse!!

Not a real one you understand - one that, hopefully, will make my life easier - however this is the second attempt at this post this morning as blogger keeps freezing on me!!!

i've been trying to get the old mojo back on track! Following on from the first skirt, which was fairly successful (and i have been wearing it!) i bought this lovely fabric to have a go at another one

its lovely Amy Butler fabric and quite a bold print for me, but have decided to make a short version of this skirt, so hope it works out okay!!!

i have been trying to catch up on the knitting too - my lovely Goddaughter has just had twins, a boy and a girl so thought i'd knit a couple of little hats

this is the one for the little fella, and i'm about to start a pink one!

My crochet bag, which i started ages ago, now has handles!!!

My kidsilkhaze scarf, which, i'm ashamed to say, i started last winter, is coming along and i'm determined to finish it in time to actually wear it this winter!!!

But my main project is one that i was going to start before a certain person went to Uni! unfortunately being me, so disorganised and so short of time, that didn't happen! I decided not to rush it and so it has now become a present for christmas! She loves pink (hated it until she was about 16!) so have picked these fabrics and am trying to decided what quilt pattern to go for!

so that little lot should keep me busy for a while!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Don't worry,this Mojo thing seem to stirke u all. You see I should be finishing some things that a friend is going to sell on her craft stall instead of reading bloghs but........I seem to still be blog reading, filling the head with more ideas yet can't actually get off my chair to do them!!

Have a lovely week.

I know you miss your DD but you must be bursting with pride too, eh? Good luck to her in her new adventures....

I love the pinks you picked out for your next quilt. Amy Butler right?

I love the green hat for the new baby
and his twin gets pink, so darling...

For the record I don't use the mouse pad on my laptop, I hate it!

Ah, you have many of the same fabrics as I've bought recently - great minds think alike!

Oh golly - all that making. You put me to shame, you really do. The skirt will be gorgeous.

The fabrics for the quilt made me all dribbly :-D
