Baby stuff

Well, I'm getting there with the baby stuff.  Haven't managed to get as much done as I wanted due to various other jobs getting in the way!

I've just got to knit the edges of the cardigan, add the button and sew up the sides and sleeve seams.

I think it's looking rather pretty, although I must confess I am not a lover of pink.  Always refused to wear it as a little girl and only have 1 top and 1 skirt in bright pink as an adult (and they don't often get an airing!)

I managed to knock together some scratch mitts while watching 'Merlin' on Saturday.  Still got to sort out the weaving though.  I always put that off!

Have started a hat now, although I'm a bit worried that it's looking rather small.  I don't want to give the poor child a headache the minute she's born!  I'll keep working on it and see what happens - it may be all right when I've done a few more rows.

I now have 3 followers - yay!  I don't feel so sad and lonely in Blogland now.  Thanks for joining me, ladies!  This now gives me extra incentive to ensure I keep my blog updated.

I'm currently working on a baby cardigan for one of HP's colleagues.  B & E's baby is due in the spring and I'll be seeing the future parents in about a month, so wanted to have this ready for them by then. I've only just started this project, but I'm hoping to get most of this finished over the weekend.  They're definitely having a girl, which is why I'm knitting this in pink!

Being so small, baby clothes are very quick to knit.  If I have time, I may even try to knit matching scratch mitts and a hat.  Quite a few people I know are having babies, so it looks as though I may be knitting a few more of these cardigans!

Let them eat cake!

It was my birthday on Friday and it is tradition at work to bring in cake. I didn't have time to do any baking before the weekend, so I ended up in the kitchen for most of Sunday baking.

I made a huge coffee cake for the girls at work, which went down very well at this morning's coffee break!
I then got a bit carried away and ended up making a huge batch of cupcakes for my hubby, HP.  I made another round of coffee cupcakes..............
 .......... and some rasberry cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing and topped with a strawberry. 

There are probably about 40 cupcakes in total so we may have to invite the neighbours round!

All the world's a stage

Well, I've finally got around to setting up my own blog after being inspired by many of the craftsters that I follow!  Although my first post isn't about crafting, it's about acting.

I'm helping with a production of "Woman In Mind", a fantastic play by Alan Ayckbourn, performed by the local drama group. The actors are all absolutely amazing and those working backstage do a marvellous job to help make the production run smoothly.

If you live in the Cambridgeshire area and fancy coming to see this, you can find further details on their website:

There will also be a panto in January of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, which will be incredibly funny!
