Magical Bolero.

I felt the need to make special mention of my gorgeous wedding bolero which I bought off a very talented woman. The bolero was hand felted and made to order, it was just the thing I was looking for. Magical laboratory of fashion is a store on Etsy.  I also found my daughters dresses on Etsy made by another crafty woman, Best Little Dress is the name of her store. The dresses were custom made, and perfect. Lastly I would like to mention the ribbon wands the girls had for our wedding which I found on madeit at Pinwheels and Pearls , my girls are still enjoying these!

Scrappy Chevron Blanket.

I finished my scrappy chevron blanket this afternoon, so the yarn is all bits of this and that and I am really happy with the result. This is a great throw rug and really brings a splash of colour to the place. The pattern is a free rav download , loveit!

Happily ever after.

After nearly 13 years together, 4 children, 3 houses and too many cars to count we decided to officially say I do. Hence, the special family holiday!

Family Holiday.

We took the girls back up the Gold coast last week, this was a bit of a special family holiday, more about that later. We visited Dreamworld and Currumbin wildlife park this time. This is the first holiday I have had in nearly a year, and it was well overdue. I still have another week off to enjoy some time out at home. I have really been struggling with stress lately, mostly work related so some well deserved crafting time is in order I think!
       I have to finish a counted cross stitch, my FLS (I know longest ever wip), Jay's socks and I  need to get started on a skirt for Laura. I have done really well with stash busting this year and have even just about finished a blanket with a heap of bits and pieces of yarn gifted to me by a friend at work.
