Winter 2010.....just a few pics I thought I'd share

Evening! I've been out taking a few pictures today to take my mind off feeling sick!! These bloody iron tablets are driving me mad. It can't be good for you to feel this ill taking tablets that are suppose to make you feel better. From tomorrow I'm trying liquid iron instead. ...enough of my moaning! Here are my Winter 2010 pics.

Knitted Torres
I'm sorry I don't blog much at the moment or blog hop. I have been stretched thinly what with Knitting, craft & crard making, digis & sewing!!! I am cutting back on a lot of things 1 to make time for managing my ME better & 2 to take time out the beginning of new year for when I start IVF treatment. Thank you all for your continued support Hugs  xxx


....just thought I'd update my blogging buddies so you don't wonder where I am??!! At the weekend I went to stay with a friend overnight & then Tues & Weds was trips to Leeds for hubby & my tests for starting IVF so I have been busy & tired. Trying to rest up to keep my ME in check but today I feel really poorly so I may have caught a bug too? I will be back in a few days & will comment on all the lovely entries into the Elle Challenge. Thank you for your patience

knitted Bob the Builder

Evening! I hope you are all off doing your entries for this weeks challenge??!!! No?.... well have a look at these then. I have finally finished Bob the Builder. He has been a royal pain in the rear end & there has been a few hysterical laughing fits whilst knitting him. I think I am finally happy with the finished toy. I'm pretty sure the little laddy he is for will love him!

Because he is for a little boy I have sewn everything on well. Didn't want any removable bits. Back to my Fulham played which I first knitted as a Westham player so I'm now changing his kit.....sometimes I do wonder about my brain!!!
