Some New Goodies

Just to prove I have been stitching, a progress pic of Blessings and Kind Wishes by Blackbird Designs. I'd better get moving with this if I'm going to have it done by the end of the year :)



One of Glenn's aunty's recently shared this really neat bootie pattern with me so I have knitted these for little Alice. They're great booties as they don't come off too easily.


I haven't had any new stash for ages so treated myself to a few charts and bits off my wish list. I also splashed out on the new Ginghers available from Carol's DH:)








This week I had my first catch up day back at work as my maternity leave officially ends on the 1st November. I can't believe how fast the months have gone. I'm going to be working part time until next year so Hannah will be at daycare just three days a week, Monday to Wednesday, from 8.30am to 4pm. The daycare we've chose for Hannah is excellent (its actually one of my family members that will be looking after her) and Hannah loves it there already. She had a great first day, was a little angel and was adored by the other kiddies, they were all fussing over her. So no worries for Mummy but I'm very relieved that first day has been and gone.

Off to grab some lunch and stitch for a bit now while Hannah is having her afternoon nap. Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Welcome back from your holiday!

Great booties, and nice stash haul!

Going back to work after maternity leave is tough - I know how you must be feeling!

Love those little booties. Smart idea to make them hard to get off.
That is one amazing stash haul.
I'm sure having to leave Hannah was difficult. I'm glad her and your first day went well.

Wow, very nice new stash Katrina!

It's good to see your Blessings and Kind Wishes. I've started at the other side to you so it's nice to see the other bit stitched.

I hated going back to work after my maternity leave. Thinking of you.

Blessings is looking so pretty, and the booties are adorable. What lovely stash you got as well, several of them are in my stash as too. Good luck starting back up at work. With the extra time it will take, make sure to take a bit of time for yourself on occation. I'm glad you were able to find such a wonderful day care option, that will help a lot at making the transition back to work easier.
