For the past week, Hannah and I have been having some "girl time" as DH has been away in Australia. Lucky him ay? He arrives home later today, hopefully with some pressies with us, lol. We've really missed him but we have been kept busy by being invited out to dinner a couple of times, catching up with friends, and also having a lovely day out on Saturday with my Mum and niece Zoe and a friend of ours.
There's not been alot of crafting going on these past few days so I thought I'd share a few of new my purchases and some framing I've had done recently.
So first up is some new woolie goodness - some hanks of double knit wool from the Wool Company:
amethyst, flamingo, cyclamen, cherry and watermelon
I'd read alot about this lovely wool on Ravelry and some kiwi blogs - and the service is very impressive - I ordered one day and it was here the next. This is all for future knitting projects for either Hannah or Zoe :)
Next up is something I've been wishing for a long time, a set of circular needles. How could I resist this set? I think its pretty fab :) Once again, I placed an order for them, this time from the Yarn Queen, and it was here the next day.
My current knitting project on the go, is the Falling Water Scarf, found here at Ravelry. Not sure if this will be a gift or for me yet. I'm using the Wool Company's 4ply raspberry.
Last week I received back some framing I had done by a friend.

Once again my friend has done a superb job. My Quaker Lady was meant to go up in my stitching/computer studio but its now hanging on the lounge wall :)
I've got a couple of stitching projects near completion, one being a Christmas gift for my Mum, and another a gift for a friend, and I'm hoping to have the ornament I chose for July, which is all stitched, made up one night this week. So I'll be back soon with some pics......
Thanks for stopping by today,
