Knit 1, purl 1........another pair of Baby Booties.

I am TRYING t rest my poorly foot as much as I can so I decided to dust off the knitting needles and make another little pair of booties. They are quick little projects and fun to do.

Tried a different pattern this time and I have just ordered some little buttons to embellish the cuffs.

What shall I make next?

A bit of this and a bit of that

Well that seems to be pretty much my life at the moment. Feel like I am running around in circles only doing as much as I possibly need to do on one task before dashing to the next. This is not just leaving me  feeling exhausted but I am lacking the sense of any achievement and as I am leaving almost everything incomplete, my house is becoming more and more chaotic. 

I have achieved a few little things, only the hat on this set though, my mum stepped in and made the little booties as I was up to my eyes in glitter and table decorations for my party. Mum to the rescue, thank you.

Loved this little set which was made to a download from Etsy, I plan to make more and will sort out the link. 

With my Birthday Party looming, yesterday I made several batches of cupcakes, 76 in total....there was an odd number so we shared number 77. They aren't as professional looking as I would have liked but number 77 tasted pretty scrummy.

Today I am measuring out curling ribbon for the balloons, making a few last minutes bits and bobs and cooking in preparation for a cold buffet. 

Foot still killing me and after my 3rd therapy appointment with the Osteopath on Wednesday, my tendon is still damaged and feeling rather bruised.........I don't think killer heels are going to be an option tomorrow. 

Bye for now.

Wedding Invitations!

A very lovely family I know have a bit of an appeal for help going on. They are always the first to help out others and are the some of the kindest and thoughtful people I know. Now I couldn't ignore the call out and rather than donate money, I have offered to make a few bits and bobs for them. Yesterday I finished off their Wedding Invitations.

Wedding Invitations now made I have just one week to get "stuff" sorted for my Birthday Party. Currently my breakfast bar in covered in glitter....well in fact there is glitter scattered all over the house.

I have a lot to do over the next few days but I want to enjoy it. As usual, so many ideas, so little time and energy to put any of them to use.

Onwards and upwards.
