How's your week going? Mine's been a bit up & down, I seem to be a bit of a tired old chook lately. I'm finding that I'm not so motivated to blog, maybe it's the time of year? I am weirdly enjoying the cold weather though, like I always do at the start of winter. Give me a few weeks and I'm sure I'll be complaining about it..! I was going through a bag of bits today and found this sweet butterfly brooch that Amanda made, I love it! Just the thing to brighten up a grey, wintery day.

And these gorgeous screen printed tops made by my beautiful friend, Kate. They are destined to be posted off in a parcel to...

some loved ones, who shall remain nameless.. in case they happen to be reading this post! 
And in the same package I will pop this dear, sweet doll, made by Ms Ric Rac herself. She is  just the most gorgeous doll (Jodie is too), I love her little bag and I wish I had a coat like hers. 
I bought this little sweetie pie two Christmas's ago, stashed her, lost her, re-stashed her 
and found her again!
Wow. Do you ever do that? Hide something so well that you can't find it yourself?

So what else has been happening?  Lovely Sue, a new friend from school, is encouraging me to knit a cardigan for Rosie. I wonder if I'm brave enough, it's been a long while since I took on what for me is a BIG project. I'm a tiny bit I just need some wool!

And today I started posting a few things on Ebay to sell, 
one of which is this rather snazzy Boden coat that I bought a while ago. It's a delicious
velvety red/pink colour and so soft & warm but just a bit too big for me.

Anyway chooks, I better go. Dinner to make, kids to monitor, we have a house full this afteroon,

and Rosie & I need to check for eggs before it gets dark.
Our little Silkies are laying which is great!
Their little smooth eggs are amazing,
thanks girls!
Bye for now lovely friends,
see you soon xo

Oh the kinder girl is so cute Beck! Good luck with the knitting, if you get stuck Kate will be able to help you out but I am sure you will master it in no time at all.

Well, you did very well for not having anything to blog about LOL!! :) What sweet things you're sending to a loved one. They should be very happy. Your chicks look so pretty. Take care.

I think it is so funny that you lost, found, lost and found Jodie's doll with the gorgeous coat. That is such a me thing to do. You've reminded me about the brooch too. I hope you have such a happy Thursday honey. x

I think that I heve more safe places in my flat than anyone else, the problem being that I can not remember where they are.
The cardigan is lovely, it would be beautiful also for an adult. It is exciting to start something new and the challenge is stimulating.
I love those chooks, so fierce!

The picture of your daughter holding the eggs is really cute. I love how the doll even has a scarf on her.
