Some things for me, something for you

Some lovely things I have been given...


Thankyou to Jolie for these beautiful things.... The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook and some hand dyed yarn. Jolie also kindly sent some extra yarn and bamboo needles. For a girl who wears woollen socks to bed all year round (tragic but true!), I am very grateful.

I'm not sure how I met Jolie but I love visiting her place, Tropical Soup. Aside from the gorgeous photos and cute things she makes, I often find myself laughing because it's funny OR because I am a little scared at the adventures her twins get up to. Hmmmm, fun things for me to look forward to! Jolie is very sweet... why not pop over and say hi.


Thank you also to Kelly for the voucher at Retro Mummy I won in her giveaway. As a very thrifty crafter, being able to buy myself some beautiful fabrics was a real treat. Thankyou so much Kelly.

And now something for you. I have one of Bettsy Kingston's new patterns, the Far Away Tunic to giveaway. Bettsy has a range of patterns you can see here. To win this pattern, all you need to do is leave a ONE WORD comment describing your weekend. Why weekend and why only one word? Well, it's Sunday afternoon and why not! I'll draw the winner on Friday 12th Feb.


Hope your one word for this weekend is a good one. xxx


**GIVEAWAY CLOSED.... Congratulations to Sarah who won!***

Transitional.

We found the block, thought about the changes a move would bring and decided they would be worth the effort in the long run.

We are going to start negotiations tomorrow to try to buy the farm and move with the children to an unpowered rural, isolated block :)

Sock knittering, huh?

Restorative.

Can't limit to only one word though, because....I never knew you were a sock knitter!! I think sock knitters are very cool and clever. I have dreams of becoming one...

Unproductive.

Tanya said...

Well, aren't you full of news?!
Are you serious- knitted socks to bed rain, hail or shine? I can't stand things on my feet, including shoes which is abit unfortunate.
My weekend? Sleepy

It's one word, just not a one word comment!

PS Can't wait to see the socks you make.

Kate said...

Produce market!
I know that's 2 words but I am far too tired to work out a clever way of making it into one.
I hope you had a great weekend. X
