At Last

The finished socks have now been given to their intended owner and here's his lordship modelling them:

He says they're comfy and keep his tootsies nice and warm I however think he looks a bit camp in this picture:

It's a bit blurred because I was laughing so much!

This afternoon I'm scrapping and watching Michael Myers to get me in the mood for Halloween :0) xx

Sunny, Lazy Sunday

I was up with the lark this morning so that I could ring the bells at church and I finally think I'm getting the hang of it.  I'm not scared that I'll miss the Sally or break the Stay anymore, just need to work out call changes.......all a foreign language if you don't ring bells!

I finished the socks at last yesterday but forgot to take a picture, I will though.

Today I've actually been scrapping.  I love Crate Restoration papers so it was no hardship at all when both of the kits I subscribe to used it this month.  I got stuck right into the one from Gottacraft, I know it's naughty to start on a new kit when I have so many older one stacking up but what the heck, I love this range :)

Maddie and her godmother Clare being stupid with a tomato shaped bottle of ketchup when we went out to dinner recently!

It was a great evening at a lovely restaurant we've been going to for many, many years, the butterscotch tart and custard they do is to die for!

I can't decide what to do this afternoon, attack the Sarah's Cards kit or start knitting my hat......maybe I'll surprise myself and do both.
Hope everyone has had a fun and relaxing weekend.

I'm Back

Life has been racing past, even payday seems to be arriving quicker than ever which can only be a good thing!

I've done a few layouts but I've been mostly knitting, racing to get a pair of socks finished for Paul's poor, cold feet!

Here is a layout I did using a kit from Gottacraft:
My beautiful niece looking a bit like a rag-a-muffin!

I have got a wedding album to share but it's taking me ages to re size and edit the appalling photos I took of it.

Off to watch Shutter Island and knit some socks.  I won't leave it so long before posting next time.
