Joining Ginny @ Small Things today for Yarn Along!
There has been a hive of creativity in our home recently what with all the homespun Christmas gift making that has been going on!
Emmy actually ended up in casualty, last week having run the sewing machine needle through her finger! It missed the bone by a millimeter and has now completely healed thank heavens, for a while it seemed as if her poor finger would be double it's size for good :(
I am incredibly proud of how brave she was though, not wanting to frighten her little sisters! I have a very strong girl. I'm pretty sure I would have been a trembling mess had it happened to me!
Anyway, on to some brighter news ...
I have started knitting a short sleeved jumper for Seraphina using smooth DK yarn that should be non itchy for her eczema. I'm hoping to have it finished for Christmas. I'm on the needles every spare moment (of which there aren't many:) Still I must admit a little bit of mindless stockinette is rather refreshing after all the eyelet, ruffle and cable drama of Nola's little pink cardi :)
By the way... Here is the little dolly friend I introduced you to last week. She all finished up and ready for one little Fina girl I know. I think she will fill the stocking up nicely don't you :)
I wonder what she will name her? She looks like a cheeky little "Pixie" to me, just like her soon to be Mama is :)
Reading wise, I have just finished the fun and fabulous "The Happiest Mom" by Megan Francis.
It is a whimsical, humorous book about motherhood by a mother of many who has been there, done that, got the t'shirt, the baseball hat and most likely the matching mug and tea towel too :)
It is written in a magazine style with lots of quizzes, hints and tips :)
I'm going to be giving away one copy of " The Happiest Mom" this week and a winner will be chosen at random and announced on Wednesday 7th of December! Why not treat yourself or another lovely Mama this Christmas and take part.
