Busy, busy, busy

Blinking flip, been all over this week with work and have not had any time to myself. Ok maybe I've had a little time, but it's not been much and I've tried to make sure I did some crafting.

OH had his CT scan, so we're awaiting results now.

I finished my squares for the 7th rnd of the friendshipghan swap. Actually I finished them last weekend and I have had no time to get to the PO so they're still sitting waiting to be posted.

I started a very silly hat last night. No pattern, just a wee idea from Ravelry.
So far it looks like:




No idea how it's going to look, but hey it's a bit of fun.

I've only got one square to do in my 12" CAL 2008.
Here's October



and December



This one's not finished off yet as I need to check it's 12". I did it on the train to Dundee this morning and didn't have room to measure it properly.

Just have to do November now.

And here's for some AWWness are my two little sun worshipers.

Not my Year

It really just isn't my year.
My Dear OH is in hospital having tests after a seizure.
Oh my goodness, it was so scary. Fingers crossed that they figure out what the problem is/was.
Send him get well thoughts please.

Tell you what, with all the death, illness and general crap that's been going on this year. I have my fingers crossed that next year will be a blast (in a good way).

Here's the latest addition to the family:





This is Gandalf, he's a rehome due to an unsympathetic landlord. He's around 2yrs old and still has a little bit of the kitten in him, even though he's huge. Cute huh?

Only 2 more squares to do before my 12" CAL blanket is complete. Off course there is the sewing up to be done.

Happy Happy Halloween

EE BY GUM, life is just so busy atm. No time to blog. No time to carve pumpkins, but did manage to get my little DD all costumed up for Halloween.

Guess who?



If you're not sure, it's Jason From Halloween. The mask and machete are homeish made and I bought her the boiler suit. Which I'm Ok about as she can use it to help painting etc.

Apart from that I'm working on wrist warmers for myself as it's blinking freezing and I've started my DD's Hoodie for Christmas. It's a 70's Wendy pattern, which I'm doing on circular needles and so far it's going rather well.

Dad is out of Hospital and doing well. He's got oxygen at Home and is using it a bit, but the Dr's say that it can take up to 6 weeks until he's back to his old self.

We're inundated with Cats atm. We got a new Boy cat called Gandalf from Freecycle. He's a beauty, but still a bit unsure. We've also got my Auntie's cats temporarily, as she's moving house. The Tom is a minx and keeps on trying to escape. He wants to be on the outside and the other one is a little black girl who is just a little sweetie.

Finally got my OWS 38 stuff finished and sent. I was so pleased with it. I basically made Sullengal a flapper set. Hat, gloves and scarf.





All crocheted.
