scrappy happy pot-holder

still here! just plodding along with the daily routine which is a real time zapper right now, last week i got a real urge to sew something quick & easy, as we were visiting my sister at the weekend i whipped up a quick gift for her, a sweet scrappy pot-holder, it satisfied the sewing urge rather nicely

feeling neighbourly

well the snow came & went, then came back again for a little & we kept snug in front of the wood burner {whilst i knitted} the sublime chunky merino tweed became a 'neighborly' for little O, i loved knitting with this wool, it was so warm & soft, the colours are lovely too, 
i've been a little quiet on the blogging front, mostly because i've just been enjoying & making the most of half term, their holiday is my holiday too & love it! we've been kept busy this week & when i have found five minutes to sit at the sewing machine i've been making mattresses & pillows for the little sylvanian folks that little O {& i} have become rather fond of

i'm ready & waiting for the snow to arrive, i've done a super market run, as i normally do the shopping on a weekend when the hubs is around {so the kids don't have to come too!} despite planning our meals weekly, i've never been organised enough to do the internet shopping thing regularly but i really should, as it would save a lot of time, i've also be rather naughty & stocked up on a little woolly goodness, all brought at sale prices, so rather a bargain really & i know what it will all get used for {i can get organised when there is yarn involved!}
sublime chunky merino
some beautifully soft & cosy sublime chunky merino tweed in the bramble & whistler colour way, brought from kemps , & then some of the equally soft sublime extra fine merino dk from get knitted, {it would have been a better deal to get it all from get knitted, as their prices are slightly cheaper in these yarns & with free postage, but they didn't have the colours i wanted in the chunky, & as i didn't need too much, kemps still worked out a good deal}

so once i've prepared this evenings meal & got the wood burner going, i'm hoping to settle down in front of a film {the small folk have voted for Aladdin}, maybe even with a hot chocolate & definitely some knitting

let it snow
