Something a little different




I was bored the other evening so decided to try turning Booboos the monster into a flat pattern. Came out well I am pleased with it.

This is probably going to be a cushion when its finished but my other option is to make it into a picture.
Future uses for the pattern can also be jumpers.

Booboos is originally designed & illustrated by Erica Martyn & the knitting is all by me!

Happy Blogging

Bazoo cuddle time tissue box cover

I've been playing with my sewing machine today and made a tissue box cover with the scraps left over from the nappy stacker i made. So it matches rather nicely!!

Apologies I've been neglecting my blog again!!


Who are you I hear you cry!!! Yes I am still about honest :0)

I will be 35 weeks pregnant on Thursday which also happens to be my 32nd birthday....eek!
As you can imagine I have been busy getting ready for my baby coming, going to antenatal classes etc.

I have also been busy knitting these 2 chaps above, they are in the process of being tested to become CE safety certified & I have been typing up their knitting patterns. 
You may recall them from a while back. They are 2 monsters from Erica Martyn's The Peepos collection.
For more of her collection click here.

I have also knitted my baby boy a kooky cat, made him a nappy stacker & re-covered our family moses basket which is over 40 years old & has had both my brothers, sisters, myself & my nieces & nephews in it!!
The material for the nappy stacker & moses basket was a gift from the very lovely Helz Cuppleditch



Finally for today I would just like to say thank you to my followers & for their lovely comments. I apologise I don't get around to visit you & comment back like I use to. I will try I promise!!

Big hugs
Helen & Baby Bump!!
