Thankyou Bikini Wrap

I have been participating in the secret pal exchange at the www.crochetville.org Its been LOTS of fun :) I can't reveal who my secret pal is yet as shhh its a secret and my package to her is still en-route. BUT I can say a HUGE thankyou to the lady who was my secret pal - WHOM I KNEW AS BIKINI WRAP - Her ville name is GGROSE.


Here are the photos - minus some of the candy which my children and DH have already eaten whilst I was looking for the camera...

I got totally spoilt rotton - So a HUGE thankyou GGROSE and I will be staying in touch - I have enjoyed our emails and your friendship!

long time - no blog

Sorry its been so long in between blog posts - but life has a habit of getting in the way here...

I will just post some update photos of what I have been working on crochet wise...

Here is the picture of the FALL/AUTUMN dishcloth that I sent to Kimberly - I quite liked it and I used the first few rounds of the round ripple pattern as my dishcloth pattern.

Next comes my progress on my round ripple - Its getting bigger...

But the bigger it gets the slower the progress :)

Day 1 - ripple progress

A friend of mine has a son with Nephrotic Syndrome. A crochet group that I belong to does alot of charity work and normally even though I would like to help I am really busy with my family and I don't have time to help. But this story touched me deeply - I guess children being sick touch anyones hearts. So I have offered to help with a challenge to get as many of these 12 point stars for Children with Nephrotic Syndrome completed so that they can be given to the children for comfort reasons.

Here is the progress I made in a couple of hours - and I will post update pictures until my ripple is completed.

Why won't my printer work?

Yesterday I was trying desperately to figure out what was wrong with my printer - hmmm I think the video picture says it all? I wonder why??

Meet Princess

Finally here are some pictures of princess - The Jack Russell Terrier that we got from the pound. She has been a bit of an escape artist - but we now keep her on a 25metre chain and she still has the run of the yard without escaping out of the yard.

She is now a much loved a part of the family and the kids love to take her for walks.
