Today's Projects

Today Kimmy and Wolf came over.
The kids played and we did a bit of craft. 
I have been saving tins to mod podge so we did a little bit.
The conversations are unreal when we are doing this stuff.
Alot of laughing and stupidity.
We got a photo of us today, standing in front of the fabric piles and ironing board where the best work happens.  Now she has gone over to her sisters to bake cakes, for no reason, just for fun.  What a fun day she will have had!  p.s. they are entering my kitchen rules as a sister duo, lets hope they get in!
Here is my latest crochet project, this one will see me through till next winter I'd say.
It's a Lucy inspired from Attic 24 Granny Stripe Blanket.
I thought it would be a good way to use up some wool.  I am not thinking about the colour combinations, just using up wool but making sure there is enough to complete to rows in each colour at least.  It's pretty long, so we'll see how quickly I get bored with it. 
This is a crochet hat for Lilly.  It is a touch too big.
I finished this off when the kids were fishing the other night.  See where I ran out of light pink wool, nevermind I think the darker band looks ok.  And the flower was pure scraps, which I made up as I went, the centre is a little dodgy!
Here is the little boy in his new crochet hat he had to have.  His is plain blue 100% wool and fits like a glove.  I've got his size and pattern sorted just need to perfect Lilly's.

Hey Leah,
Have been crocheting my little heart out since you left on Tuesday - in between the 24 hours I spent throwing up! Nice. Thanks for the lesson lovely. Megan x

What on earth is mod podge?
Looks fun though.
Loving all the crochet you've got going on. I've just sent two beanies off to Tassie today. Who knows if they'll fit. Loving your boy in his.
Hope you and the family have a great weekend. X
