On Sunday we made the most of the mild weather by cutting, scooping and squelching our pumpkins in preparation for Halloween.
  Tonight after Jack's rugby game and a rather rushed tea we headed out into the spooky darkness to go trick or treating although we didn't see many other ghost or ghoul's we did have a lot of fun.

Hope you all had a lovely Hallow's Eve and haven't eaten too many sweeties!!!

Recent Makes and Orders!!!

I recently had to make a present for one of Rachel's friends so using some lovely linen fabric with purple roses, decorated with machine embroidery and sequins and teaming it with some sumptuous purple corduroy I made this pretty make-up bag.
 Probably like most of you I tend to shy away from zips but as they say practice makes perfect, so I have been practicing.
Both these animal print make up bags were a custom order via facebook and I was really pleased with how these turned out.
A finishing touch with a pink ribbon zip pull and a silver heart charm for the zebra print
and a red ribbon zip pull and gold heart charm for the leopard print.
I already have orders for a few more of these so I shall be getting lots of zip practice!!!

Crochet Ta Dah!!!

I was supposed to post this at the weekend but better late than never eh!!!
I've finished my first crochet blanket, I used the ripple pattern from over at Attic 24. This is my first completed crochet project and I finally finished it on Saturday night whilst watching Big Brother, I then left it on the sofa for Jack to snuggle under whilst watching Wales play Fiji at 6am!!
It was obviously a good omen as Wales triumphed with a big win!!!
I used some Bonus Dk as this was my first project and I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I am a project hopper so I didn't want lots of expensive wool sitting in bag for years (I would never do that!!!). The wool was lovely to crochet with and is surprisingly soft, so now it's onto the next project a blanket for Rachel - more ripple or a granny ripple I can't quite decide?? but I do have the wool already.....
