Half birthday's

Unbelievably the smallest one was six months old today!  I can't believe how quickly the time has flown but felt the need for a gratuitous cute photo post ;-)

Finger slippage

In a moment of weakness I brought something that I was supposed to add to the husbeast's present inspiration list (aka the list of nice things I'd like for Christmas/Birthday/Mother's Day!)  This gorgeous little twig brooch from I Am Acrylic caught my eye and I thought it would make an ideal shawl pin, of which I desperately need more of!  Turns out it really does look great :-)   Fortunately they have several other designs I'm coveting that Lee can buy me should he feel the need.

The Color Affection isn't actually finished (still...yes...I know!  I am met with ridicule from the husbeast every time he sees me knitting it!) but I am at least on the last repeat of section three before starting the border.  It should be finished before the end of the year at least hehe

The Curly Girl is six!

Yet another birthday here :)  This time it's Rachael who was six on Friday.  The main present she requested was a tad delayed but has arrived today and is a HUGE hit!

Meet Rose, a custom 16" traditional Waldorf Doll by Little Oke Dolls

She's the perfect companion for Becky, the waldorf doll I made for Rachael's 3rd birthday.  I think it's very much love at first sight!

And a gratuitous gorgeous curly girl shot <3

Yarn Porn!

It's been a looooong time since I treated myself to yarn <mini violins playing etc> but I really could not resist this amazing handspun merino sparkle rainbow yarn from Dye Spin Knit. With three skeins I should have more than enough to make something completely amazing...when I decide what will do the beautiful yarn justice!

Baby led weaning...or not!

The shouty boy is getting increasingly interested in food and so the baby led mess weaning begins.  Alas he wasn't particularly impressed with today's stolen toasted english muffin!

Not back to school

We're lucky enough to live within walking distance of some distinctly lovely places and along with several other friends we spent today taking advantage of the sunshine and not being at school with an afternoon of foraging for elderberries and blackberries followed by a splash around in the river.
