Have you seen all the chat about Mollie Makes?

I got my hands on to the first issue which has this cool kit (far left) ... which I had to make. The older two saw the cover and asked if I could make one for their ipod and magic mouse. What could a crafty mum do?

Happy Weekend yous all!

Boy Jeans

Most boys make knee holes in their jeans. It is part of their genetic make up.

It is crafty mums genetic make up to fix those holes... Got this idea from Nydia from Evolution of the home ... very cool.

knitting texture love

At night, I am furiously knitting a blue scarf up for me. This will go with my new fingerless gloves. The air is chilly outside and we need to rug up.

I have not done this stitch before and loving it - the texture makes my heart flutter. Despite it not looking anything like in my knitting book. I have followed the instructions really and truly!

Those of you were here when the little man was born.

Our busy, inquisitive, climbing boy!

I have relished his every moment and have thoroughly enjoyed him. What I have gained from having Gus has been way far more than I ever expected. Looking forward to many more years with you.

Hug and kisses Mum
