 Well I have finished Caroline's wool bag and she loved the colours and she is very pleased with the bag - so hopefully it is now full of wool !  I love the bright batiks and this is such a great size bag.
 One of our ladies came into the shop and bought in some baby quilts she had knitted for the premature baby unit - I was so impressed that I chose some wool from our baby King Cole double knitting and made this one - it is soo soft and I really enjoyed sitting knitting.

So now that is finished I have started a new top for myself in the King Cole Bamboo Cotton - it is lovely and soft - I only cast on this morning before breakfast so shall just have to get knitting!!
Well my little Leo was one year old yesterday - where has the year gone to.  They had a lovely birthday party for him at the weekend and here are some photos of the most gorgeous one year old ever.  No bias there
He has learnt to clap and loves to clap at just about everything.  A very proud Daddy!!

 Oh the magic of "In The Night Garden" - I am now a real fan of the programme - This is for the uninitiated "Iggle Piggle".  He absolutely adored cuddling it.
More clapping - what a happy little fellow - Mum encouraging him - Caroline has taken to being a Mum so well.  She has taught herself to crochet and loves cooking.  Time is very limited though being the Mum of a one year old!

Caroline and I had a wonderful Spa day on Monday together - we left Leo with Daddy and we headed to the www.ImagineSpa at the Orton Hall Hotel in Peterborough - it was lovely - we relaxed, sat in the Jaccuzi - had a swim, Sauna and steam room - a lovely lunch and then oh the highlight of the day was an Asian Massage - warm oil poured over you and then a hot stone rubbed over then a deep massage and finally a very hot towel laid on you.  Oh gorgeous - I was forced to sleep I was soo relaxed.

I now have to think about my next projects and to be fair I think I would like to try and finish some more of the unfinished projects in my sewing room.   I have got lots of quilt tops waiting to be wadded and quilted.  I thoroughly enjoyed quilting the last quilt I just finished so I think that is my aim to get some pieces finished.


  1. I can't believe Leo is already one. Happy birthday Leo. I know all about Iggle Piggle. Hope Caroline loves the bag. Get knitting, I love that pattern and can't wait to see it made up.

  2. Lovely post Pam and Leo is gorgoeus. The bag for Caroline is beautiful. Well done you.

  3. Happy birthday Leo. What a gorgeous happy little chap.
