Kittens

Babies are here. I got to look on and make sure everything went fine. My wee Fizzy was an absolute trouper and did all the nasty stuff like clean of birthing sack, eat placenta and chew cord.

Baby pics




We have 3 black ones and 2 tabbies. All born this morning. Now they have spent all day eating they are more belly than anythingelse.

I lurve youtube

So i have been spending heaps of my free time working on OWS rnd 46 swaps, but none of them have arrived yet so I can show you any of my work.
I do have a couple of pics of stuff I made for round 44.
This is a woven African themed Wall hanging. A wildebeast in the sunset.



And this is my first ever pair of knitted mittens. Even better I did them two at a time on a circular needle.



Anyway as to why I LURVE youtube, apart from that fabulous southpark twilight clip. I don't tend to watch too much TV, not because I don't like it, but generally it eats into my cooking and crafting time. Besides when I'm ready to sit down and chill (after 11pm) there's nothing on that I want to watch. Also some of the things I want to watch never get shown on our freeview, but some fab people put the odd series onto youtube.
Recently I got to see the entire first (and only) series of Higher Ground. I like Hayden, strangely enough he reminds me alot of my son.


It's a fab little series and had me blubbing a fare few times.
The new find that I'm watching atm is Moonlight a vampire series, another cancelled american show. I'm only on the second episode so no opinions formed yet.



I've also managed to get in a couple of movies. Tristan and Isolde



Great romance, had a little cry.

Life as a House, has Hayden in it and a cast of well know stars. I just loved this movie, was very moving. Hayden really reminded me of my 16 year old in this one. This one I really did blub about.



Final word....what's with this blinking weather!! I was all gearing up to summer mode and then poof....it's cold and wet!!! I was getting so used to drying the washing on the line. I sad :o(

Ooh, ooh, ooh...Ok this really is the final word....keep an eye on the blog as we're getting babies soon. No NOT me!!! I have my Silkie X sitting on 6 Pekin eggs and some of them should hatch any day now....another reason why the weather sucks. Had to spend time today building a run for the chicken and chicks in the pouring rain!!
AND...... my cat is pregnant too. Fizzy is expecting a litter. Here's the baby bellied madam in her new basket. She loves cuddles atm.

In the HOOD

Hey, hey, Last week I finally managed to finish my DD's Christmas Hoodie...Yes I said Christmas...It only took me a whole 6 months to make it. I'm easily bored and I hate following patterns.
Anyway I'm very proud and it's got slightly cropped sleeves so it'll be fine for next winter.





Apart from that I have just been an Angel to a "Craft My Theme Swap", can't put pics up until the recipients receives.
I joined the Ongoing Wish Swap rnd 46 and so Far I have some Awesome swap partners. They making me a vampire inspired Shoulder bag and A pair of PJ bottoms I'm so pleased.
I'm making some kind of Dr Who bag, a wisty surprise, some bookmarks, cat toys and quilted pot holders. Well today I made the pot holders. Now I'm very pleased with them (can't show you pic yet). It was a bit of trial and error, as I say pattern hater. The first one took ages, as it was the prototype, but the second one was a breeze. Hope she likes them.
Anyway I need to get my swap package all finished off, so that I can send it tomorrow
