Frosty Mornings!

Blimey where did this cold spell come from!?
I love those crispy autumn mornings when the sky is blue, the sun is shining and and the leaves flutter down from the trees. We have had a few days like that but then bam along came the frost! The heating is on and the gloves have been rescued from the back of the cupboard once again - brrr!!

My Godaughter Athena has just come back from her first holiday - visiting family in Athens and I knew she would need a jumper when she got back so I dug out the knitting needles and.....tah dah!!!
It's so cute! And for someone who hasn't knitted anything for years I'm quite chuffed with it - I did need a hand from my Mum but it's 99% my work. Can't wait to catch up with my little Squidge next week to see how it fits.

So it's another dull day here up north, here's a picture of some Greek sun and my gorgeous girl to warm us up.... she get's her love of the sunshine and beach from me!!

Hello again and some fab news!

Hi bloggers

sorry it's been so long since I last posted - netbook problems, back to college and lack of mojo just got in the way!

Over the last few weeks, however, I've dug out the knitting needles and am almost finished a cute little hooded jumper for my Godaughter - of course it's pink! It's been years since I knitted and I've found it really enjoyable and am looking for more projects. I've also been cross-stitching too, again it's been years since I did any but a couple of magazines caught my eye and with the freebies I made these two...

So I can now say I've made a start on my Christmas cards - which I really need to get on with!

Now for my good news..... I was at a tourism dinner a couple of weeks ago with a couple of colleagues, a really good night, all about South Africa. At the end of the evening the prize draw for goody bags was made, followed by a draw for places on the educational trip and I WON! I'm off on 16th November for 10 days all expenses paid. I've not got my itinerary yet but will keep you posted!!

All for now xxxx
