Things that made me smile this week...

Sometimes I need to just do a quick catch up post for the bits and bobs that don't warrant a post all of their own, so here goes, some things that made me smile this last week or so:

Pink Roses from my beautiful teenage Niece, when I asked why she said "just because I love you":
More of those 20p knitting patterns, I went back and almost cleared them out:

A new lamp for my kitchen that I just had to have, it was on offer, but not any longer it's from Laura Ashley (I have removed the link ~thanks Nicky~ as they have taken it off their website eek hope it's not dodgy!):

A little teddy I knitted follwing an Alan Dart pattern (he is about 3" high) in September's Simply Knitting Magazine:

Some pretty crochet flowers I plan to turn into brooches:

And a crochet dishcloth with a crochet flower:

Oooohhh and exciting news for last I won a wonderful giveaway ~ I couldn't believe it I was in the middle or sorting my stuff for my giveway and I won one myself from the lovely bibbitybob and I can't wait to get my hands on the lovelies, I will show you when they arrive, thanks again bibbitybob!

That's it, we are up to date!

p.s. ohh almost forgot weigh in last night and I lost another pound, thats 7.5lbs in two weeks, I was given a little award for 1/2 a stone ~ bless.

~ ♥ Back Soon ♥ ~

Love the little ted, so cute :) I think knitting is the 1 craft I will never get the hang of :( and well done on your weight loss, keep up the good work.
Kind wishes, Sue x

I heart this post! Everything you've made is beautiful, and the roses delightful. Plus you lost weight (and I learned that a stone is about 15 pounds, lol).
and that lamp is so fun!

You have a very interesting looking vase! And it's no surprise you like the lamp. Oh, you're lucky too. I've not won any giveaway at all. I'd love to drop 1/2 a stone too. Just let me convert to kg. You've just motivated me to go for a jog.
