A Witch for Halloween

Evening All

I hope you are all keeping warm. I find a blanket, the dog on my feet and a little bit of JD in my hot choc works wonders. :D

Halloween is approaching. Rather than the usual decorating the house at Halloween its going to be a quiet one i think. Will be watching scary films with the kids, well Igor but thats scary enough I think. :P

I have made a Halloween Witch Sock Monkey. She jingles and not quite as grumpy as usual! :D

I took the kids to a Halloween party today so they dressed up. Afterwards they had to go to the library to collect their certificates and medals from the summer reading challenge. There will even be a photo in the local paper. My kids will be easy to spot as they were the only ones dressed up! lol

But whilst at the library I found the most delightful book. Here is a link to a review i found on it. http://pinktulipza.blogspot.com/2009/03/sew-pretty-homestyle-by-tone-finnanger.html As you can see her stuff is lovely. So I have ordered 2 books by the same author. I cant wait to start sewing. Need to go through my limited fabrc stash and see if I have anything suitable for a dog, teddy and cat and maybe the slippers. But in my defence I am hoping some things can be made as xmas presents, thats my excuse and I am sticking to it!!! :D

Hope to see you soon

Sparkly Dino


Thanks for popping by.

I have only made a sparkly dinosaur this week. These take me so long to make as I am not the fastest at crochet (would probably be faster if i turned facebook off though!!! lol)

But, anyway, here he is. This is for my youngest for Christmas.

I have got a minion half made and have started on another dinosaur. Must finish them this week.

And I want to make another witch sock monkey. So much to make, so little time to make it.

Also I ordered some material this week. Am planning on cooking hampers for the girls in the family and also some art bags. You would think being a stay at home mummy I would actually have time for all this!!! :D

Back soon.
