Cupcake box

I saw this free take out box pattern for by designs by mega tunridge and i knew it would make cute little cupcake boxes. I printed it onto kraft card and then stamped the work cupcake on it in gold - so cute!

Amazing Notebooks

Found an amazing stationery shop on my holiday - Typo

This notebook has a swear word on it, in french and then has graph paper pages - pretty much prefect!

Amazing blogger notebooks with pocket to store little bit and bob :)

How amazing is the seductive, awkward cat headed lady!!

Baby Boom blanket - Freddie Andrew

Little Freddie Andrew arrived a few weeks early on 20th Jan, a super cute little boy for Rachel and Dan, and this is his blanket!

A slightly different blanket from the usual ones, this is a super soft flannel cotton with a red crochet edge. I think it might be a new favourite style for the baby boomers!

Tickets printable

Super cute printable from uprintables, no idea what to use them for but i never can resist a vintage ticket!

Lettering stamping tip

When stamping words/lettering join the stamps together with a rubber band!

I'm not sure why i never thought of this myself but i cant take credit i saw it via Pinterest

Granny square blanket

Talk about a labour of love - Ive been making a granny square blanket for nearly a year now but i am proud to say that it is finally finished!!
Its made up of 144 squares, that was hard work enough, but then weaving in all the ends nearly put me off totally and then i still had to make it up... but i did it :)

Its probably only a month or so's actual work but i procrastinated and delayed and stalled so much that it became a lot more work than it should have. Lesson to be learned - just get on with stuff - a project is much less intimidating the more of it you do!
I used this pattern from Purl Bee for the squares and just used (all) the wool i already had (amazing stash buster!)

Its a gift for my wonderful sister who lives on the other side of the world to me (sad face) but i plan to add more squares to the next time i visit her or she visits us, hopefully itll be huge by the time were old ladies together!
