A bit of this and that!

As promised, a little bit of what was on the go in my life towards the end of 2011.

 Tea Cosies ... always my favourite.  Planning on making some cute baby blankets this year.
 Knitting a tea cosy while my parents were visiting us at the end of September/October 2011.  I gave the tea cosy to my mom to take home in the end.
Had an order for 6 tea cosies, made a whole lot of cup cake cosies.
 Tried my hand at crocheting toys.  Love the way the little ballerina turned out.
 Coat hangers, such a beautiful luxury to hang ones clothes onto, compared to the "gorgeous" plastic hangers we use these day!!
Just something fun, a jumble of colours and styles all in one!

Lillydew Updates - I'm here!!!

Hello all you dear and wonderful bloggers out there.  I am pleased to announce that I am back and was never reported missing but just got caught up in the end of year business of 2011.  I have much to blog and many photos to paste.

I have not stopped crocheting; in fact I gave a lot of tea cosies as Christmas presents.  I also gave homemade jam and peanut brittle.  I am just a week back from my glorious 2 week holiday on the Natal coastline of South Africa.  It is tropical and exquisite in Scottborough, a little coastal town with cute and quaint shops. We (my husband and 3 children) spent most days on the beach, swimming, picking up shells, reading books and just sitting in the little rock pools staring out to sea.  A definite place to holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

So, look out for an update of what I have been up to from my last blog, I will bring you up to speed in the next week or so but definitely before the end of January 2012.

I hope that 2012 will be a blessed year for you and your families.
