Saturday’s Things I Love

Well the weekend is here. It doesn’t feel like it though because the lovely boy has to work. It means I can get some knitting done though!

Here is my list of loveliness for today;

Robins wearing flowers as hats

Free downloadable, printable roses (and other images!)

This fabric:

 New scrapbooking goodies

Floral shoes

Wollmeise yarn

*I want to go there!*

Strawberry daiquiri


 All most lovely, I hope you agree.

Dont forget the Posh Yarn giveaway (you can find it here). It will be finishing at the end of June when the winner of the £15 Posh Yarn voucher will be drawn…exciting!

Have a lovely Saturday.

Lots of Love,

Do you like cows?

So, I found this really cute picture…

It made me chuckle cos this calf looks so angry!

So then I decided to look for cow items…cos I rather like cows. Here’s a few I found:

I found this uber-cute cow button badge at


*click to buy!*

A rocking cow…much better than a rocking horse if you ask me.


*click to buy!*

Cow cookie cutter and a recipe for cow cookies…you’ll never guess where I found these…




Isn’t that just the best website name ever! And they cater for all your cow needs.


*click to buy!*

This fluffy, cow print bag costs £14 and is available to buy from Crafty Clairy via Folksy (if you’ve never used Folksy, it’s like the UK equivalent of Etsy)

Well, that’s what I’ve been looking at anyway…I hope you enjoy it too!

Lots of Love,

What is making me happy today…

I’m worn out from yesterday so I need a bit of cheering up…luckily, it didn’t take too long to find some cheery things 🙂


Aren’t they adorable?

These little stitch markers arrived a few days ago (please excuse the dodgy photo!). I ordered them from eBay but the lovely person I bought them from also has an online shop which you can find here. They were beautifully packaged in little organza bags and they will be perfect for marking my stitches when I start knitting socks.

Which brings me to…



This arrived today!

The gorgeous pink and dotty green fabric will be used to finish off the mobile phone case I knitted (I’ll show you when it’s done). And I had a whole stack of double point knitting needles which will enable me to knit socks! It’s going to be tricky but I’ll try my best.

That brings me nicely on tot he latest thing I have knitted…


Cosy and warm

Aren’t they just the cutest mittens! And yes, that is my arm you can see there 🙂

I’m pointing out the little pocket flap as I need to get some tiny buttons to finish that off but I am so pleased that I was finally able to knit something other than a scarf! That’s all because of the knitting book my boy bought me for Christmas…thanks!

Another thing to cheer me up is that I have finally figured out how to work the camera on my phone 😛

I have all my knitting and finishing projects to now so that should keep me busy…but I shall be posting a new ‘project’ on here in the next few days and I hope you’ll join in too. It’s going to be fun!
