this'n'that...

things have been hectic in the overmilkwood homestead this week...plenty of winter ailments that you'd rather not hear the finer details of and now smallfry#2 has come down with tonsillitis...she is a pathetic little sight (very cuddley though, now that she is forced to stop for breath)

I've been busying myself with random crafting activities, as you do when ailments strike. It's been rather pleasant actually!

some knitting got started...and completed...


(it's a tudora scarflet in case you were wondering, a lovely couple'o'nights knit and very snug. Oh, and the green is much greener in RL, which pleases me)

the Le Slouch got blocked over a dinner plate and now looks much more, erm, beret like (now I know the beanie style had some professed fans, but I think you were all just being polite)

it got augmented by a pretty little flower made from a felted sweater...



which in turn led to the creation of a rather terrifying looking corsage...

(I promise I won't wear both at once)

I finished making my swap object for Lucy's Valentine Swap which will shortly be winging its way off to Jo In Tas (who has camped near some VERY strange critters indeed!)

Have chosen 5 images to print and decide between to send off to my partner in scentofwater's photoswap...hey, maybe I'll post those next time and you guys can help me decide which to send

and started to think about what the hell I'm going to do for ElsieMarley's Mobile Swap (beginning to think I was MAD, quite MAD to sign up for this one actually)

meanwhile the arts and craft brigade on my tip top parenting forum [that'll be the one that has kept me halfway sane over the past 5 years] are setting up a swap so I need to think about that too...

good lord, I think I need a lie down (preceded by a nice cup of tea of course, wouldn't like to be TOO rash)

I'm thinking the same about the mobile swap - tho I am quite excited about it...just thinking what the lordy hell do I make (and pray I don't get paired with someone who is an amazing mobile maker who'll chuck my thing in the bin!!!)
The beret is looking fab, I am in awe of the scarflet and am rather jealous of it actually too and the felty creations are fab too. Busy busy bee!!!

I love your necklet and hat!! I have wanted to knit the necklet for a long time! Now I really think I will have to try!

I have yet to decide which photos to print for my swap partner in the swap! I guess I'd better get my act together!

The scarflet and beret/beanie are absolutely gorgeous. Love the colours you've chosen. I'm a hopeless knitter so I'll have to add them to my Mum's to do list.

You are quite the swap queen! I am no where near deciding on my photos yet. This week maybe.

And I love your scarf.

You have been busy-love the felted sweater craft!

love the necklet... i might consider trying it but the thing is i'm totally atrocious at following patterns, it all goes terribly wrong... like the corsage too...

Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

Good knitting there! I love the scarflet - off now to look at the pattern! Lucy x

Florence said...

I adore the scarflet! You are my knitting inspiration (...I can't actually knit, I just mean you make me want to knit!).

I can't believe you stretched that divine little beanie over a dinner plate! If that's me that you're accusing of being polite...well, no! I really did like it...(but I think it looks good either way actually - so maybe it's a colour thing!).

Beautiful necklet and hat. Super colour for the neckie. Hope your little one feels better now. These bugs are just such a pain, we've had one thing after the other too.
