Short...and Annoying!!

I can't believe what's happened..
I've tried all day to download some photos onto this blog,
you know the usual..beautiful orchids, poppies..and some breath taking scenery, though a tad wet scenery, covered in mizzle scenery...
but no such luck, I tried 4 times...then I tried with Picasa...success!! but then...I deleted 3 of the photos by accident!!
Silly me, I'll try again tomorrow..
Take care

Handmade Gifts..

I love making gifts...and last Christmas was chockablock with homemade goodies...
first up, these leggings for Lirys...
and the crocheted wrist warmers for Bethan, pattern from Lucy
Always difficult to take a photo of a 6 month old...
This little dress...it will fit just right in the summer...I used the pattern from here

Oh dear...guess who forgot to iron it before taking the photo..?
and this...I enjoyed making this...the pattern is here at Marmalade Rose.
I made more goodies, decorations for the tree, crochet snowflakes, paper snowflakes, engraved pebbles and used them as place settings.....such fun....but we were all so ill over the holiday, I just didn't take many photos...never mind...!
