This and That

Wahoo, I've just had my first full night's sleep in quite a few months :) Our little girl has been sleeping through the night for a fortnight or so but this week has started to go down earlier in the evenings and wake a bit later in the mornings. I think my body was so used to waking every few hours that its taken a while to get used to the fact that I can actually sleep a whole lot more than five hours at a time, lol.

Over the weekend I got my stitching out, first time in a few weeks as lately I've had the urge to spend any free time knitting. This wee biscornu is Florentine Floral by Just Nan, for a small design it sure had a lot to it!

Another recent finish is this freebie by the Prairie Schooler, thanks Anita for sharing the chart with me.

Last week I finished this cardigan for Hannah, isn't the colour so pretty, its called Waterberry.


my brother Marcus has been doing some gardening for us so during his coffee break yesterday got to have a snuggle with his niece.


Almost three months old, with one of her magical smiles that melts my heart every time :)

The biscornu is lovely, and the PS finish is very cute too. The sweater also is beautiful, what a wonderful color. However, Hannah is ADORABLE, I can see how that smile would melt your heart, what a sweetie. So glad that you finally got to get some solid sleep, it is amazing how much better it makes you feel.
