A big update!

Hello!

Sorry i have been neglecting the blog, had a few big changes here… Firstly we are back in the UK! Italy just wasn’t working for us so we made the decision to come back 🙂 We are also in the middle of selling our house so are very kindly being allowed to stay with family whilst the sale goes through (as the house was empty after we moved to Italy). So lots of upheaval in our world lol!

The journey back was very eventful the road we were on was shut so we ended up driving up into the Swiss mountains and taking the LONG way round lol 

We stopped for lunch and the boys loved watching the snow out the window! it was very surreal to have driven from 19+ degrees heat to 3ft of snow!

My other piece of big news…. the mad mad me inspired Bavarian blanket is finished! It feels like an epic challenge has come to an end lol! I wanted to get it finished before we came home and even sat finishing the edging in the car on the drive home!

Here it is-

Its massively squishy and sooooo warm, perfect for snuggling under 🙂 I am thinking of writing up a pattern for it but i think i need more hours in the day first!

Another piece of big news was the arrival of my sisters baby! It turns out we have a new nephew! He is just scrummy and we are all very much in love with him 🙂 We managed to add a few more handmade gifts to the pile before we met him including my first go at a crocheted jumper which is adapted from this lovely pattern from Stephanie Mason-

Also the wonderfully talented Natasha from Bubble Boo drew this amazing picture for me and i wrote a poem which she added to the outside. I thought this would be a nice keepsake for the nursery

this is the wee poem i wrote-

Watch me as i grow mum

Oh so big and tall

for soon i’ll get so big

 it’ll seem i dont need you at all.

But i’ll always be your baby 

no matter how big it is i grow

so cuddle me close, have fun & play 

And we’ll hope that time goes slow
 
What do you think? I am pretty pleased with it 🙂 
 
Ooooh and i have also finally gotten round to starting a Facebook page to work alongside my blog 🙂 you can find me here would be lovely if you could pop by and say hello! 
 
So thats all for the updates for now 🙂 I hope to post again soon and not leave it so long lol!
