Well I have lots of things that have been going on and want to tell all but will have to save some for another time ....
But this is what I have been up to.
I took Miss Ells to her first ballet class as she has been talking non stop about ballet ever since she got this ....
Here is Miss Ells in her ballet outfit very much like Rosetta's ....
I thought I would also share these with you. They were made by a friend of my mother in law's (Janice) and she makes hand crafted cards etc and did these picture frames for Miss Ells.
LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD
HANSEL AND GRETAL
GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS
Great arn't they. She is so talented, I don't know if you can see but they are like 3D/pop up.
Talking of home decor we have been working on our kitchen and are getting somewhere near finishing. Here are some before and after shots.
MR A is a bit of a designer and and he got designing this ace splash back and made it himself and took the photo's. He works in printing hence reason he got the chance to have a go making this. What do you think?
Project wise I have started on a new knitting project ... below are a couple of pieces done so far. Can you guess what it is? All will be revealed in a future post ......
I have also very nearly finished but not quite ) a pair of bootees for my brother in law and his partner Laura's new baby expected in August '11. They have found out they are expecting a baby girl and they are going to call her Lola. What a lovely name !!!
Here are the booties. Well one bootie as I just need to sew up the second one. They have cross over straps at the front and I'm going to sew two buttons on each pair to fasten the straps to. I did buy some buttons from Chorley Market but they have magicly disappeared from where I left them. To be honest I was not too sure about them as they were quite flat buttons and shell like but I think I want some little pearl style buttons instead which would look better.
One last thing I won an award - I am well pleased as nominated by gillyflower - check out her blog but will talk about this more on my next blog when I think of 7 things to say about me and pass the award on .....
Have a fab bank holiday weekend everyone and if you read to the end well done.
Byeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! Leah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
