I should be sewing....

Its one of those days in our household today. I had planned to sew with the girls today, but most were busy this week. I should have made the effort to go and sew with Miss Khrissy. Call after call, and now we have three unhappy girls at school and I sent hubby to go and pick one up and sort the other two out....

this is me today....
Now if I had gone sewing, my day would have been filled with lots of shits and giggles and a bit of sewing, which my life is lacking of late.
With an extra two children in the household of late, my crafting is knitting socks at night. Which I finished one the other it needs a partner....I started to make them for my Mummy for Mothers Day ... oh well her birthday is October so I may have the second one finished by then.
Im about to head out to my sewing space and get a few hours of anything, even if its just sorting or patting my fabrics'...oops forgot the hubby will be back soon, I wonder how many kidlets he will have with him.....

Its flu season....

Its flu season here and has been for almost two weeks, this is the first time in 20 years Ive had the flu and I dont like it!!!!'
So not a lot has been happening except for family life which is always busy....Ive been knitting when I can. I joined the handmade society sock KAL on Ravelry two months behind. but Im ok with that. I love the hand dyed yarn that is all over instagram and etsy at the moment. I have bought enough for the first six months of the KAL ( knitalong).


My new venture 'Lost in Play' has kept me very very busy. We had our first appointment with a local preschool and they loved all our products and requested us to make some additional for them!! We are attending the Bathurst Artisan Market next weekend, 12th May. I have a good stock of products but have had a lot of request for the superheroes and princess wooden IM busy painting today....
