So I haven’t done any real Christmas shopping I have just been collecting a few things over the past few months for Miss Mila, and here they are
As you might have noticed Miss Mila is a bit of a Peppa Pig fan
The fabulous playdough bought at the Butterfly garden handmade by Busy Little Bugs
This hobby horse is ADORABLE! and is also from the Butterfly Garden, I currently have it on layby but I cannot wait to get it home for Mila
And lastly, I have started on Miss Mila’s Christmas Eve box our new tradition :-D, see HUGE Peppa Pig fan lol
I cannot wait to give these to Miss Mila for Christmas (Fairy Floss is for her birthday)
OH MY GOD! these sensory play dough’s are AH-mazing! they smell so gooood I just want to eat them better yet they are HANDMADE right in Busy Little Bugs kitchen!, I bought them from a “local” store in Springwood, NSW called Butterfly Garden they however got their stock from Busy Little Bugs who currently only sells to selected stores.
Butterfly Gardens website will be open in February 2014……needless to say I am super freaking excited! The amount of amazing kids clothes, toys and bedding blows my mind and I’ m pretty sure Kylie and her gang will send me broke!
So i just measured up the blanket against one of Mila’s pram blankets and there was absolutley no way i was going to get it the same size because i was running out of yarn GAH! SO i have unraveled it all again and made the chain length shorter and hopefully i will be able to finish it without having to un do it again lol
After another failed attempt at the Photo a Day this month lol I really hope that I will be able to finish Decembers one!
And Here it is
So far so good, it is now bout 15 inches wide Woo! I feel like I’ m flying through it, still unsure what to do about the edges
Chunky Crochet Baby Blanket- Tutorial
I found this tutorial quite sometime ago and started a blanket for Miss Mila but never finished it, I got caught up creating one for one of her little friends 1st birthday earlier this year it took a little while but it turned out gorgeous!
Today I decided to unravel the one I started for Miss Mila and start again, and here it is:
so far, so good
I started out with a 35-ish inch chain, it is now about 50 inches long! and in currently 8 inches wide, I really hope I don’t run out of yarn because the store I used to buy it at is no longer here :-(…….if I do hopefully I can buy it online :-/ the tutorial calls for you to use a Single Crochet but when I did that in the beginning with Mila’s it ended up stiff so I ended up using Double Crochet for her little friends blanket and am also using it for this blanket too it is much softer and also seems to finish quicker with the bigger stiches. I really hope to have it finished by Christmas………at the rate I’ m going I could probably finish it in the next few days :-)…..hope I have enough yarn to do a border if not I will probably put a fleece backing on it or maybe just around the edges..hmmmm we’ll see what happens LOL
So today is the day, today our little household increases from three to five! Our lovely couple friends are moving in today Mr. S and my Mr.K have been friends for many years now, Mr.S’s partner Miss A and i get along wonderfully and are quite similar so i dont think there will be any drama at all. We havent taken the desicion to have house mates lightly, we have had many a conversation with them on all sorts of things eg. how much rent to pay, how to go about food shopping and bills. To Miss Mila they are Aunty A and Uncle S and she looooves them to bits and they her, i’m quite excited really.
On another note Mr. K and i are completely wrecked after yesterday all our bones ache and our feet hurt we did alot of rearranging…well Mr.K did most of it lol but the spare room is now clear for Mr.S and Miss.A to move in i still need to finish clearing the wardrobe and find new homes for the things now residing in the dining room but we did a pretty good job considering we went to bed when it was nearly 1am!
Today is the 15/11/2013 and I wrote that ^^^ on the 8/11/2013. Yep it has taken me a week to tell you all LOL GAH!
Anyway the week has gone pretty damn good, we are all broke at the moment but Miss A, Mr S, my Mr K. and myself all get paid next week, so we will be very well off LOL, there isn’t an awful lot to say at this point we all take turns cooking dinner and washing dishes the house is still the way it looked when they moved in which is pretty damn good I say, I am still slowly getting on top of Mt. Washmore all is well in our little house, although Miss Mila is still adapting she has a sook when she goes to bed because she wants to be apart of it all, and I’m pretty sure it hasn’t clicked to her yet that Miss A and Mr K aren’t going anywhere anytime soon lol funny thing she is. OH here are the photo’s also of the re arranging we did.
My Living Room 1/4
Behind the telly and the curtain is the kitchen buffet, I’ll add photo’s of that part of the house later on when it is a bit more presentable lol
3/4 Miss Mila’s spot
so that’s it, I much prefer it this way.
