OML – You Are The BEST :)


Hi there peeps.

Oh what a lovely bunch of peeps you are. I did know that anyway of course because crafters are FAB,  but the response to my call out for knitters has been amazing – you can see it here. Even the non knitters amongst us have been kindly putting something on their blogs to let others know.

I am so touched by your kindness, I really am. Bless your hearts and hugest of  thanks to every single one of you who has helped here xxxx

I managed to get mine done and here it is …..

… I’m not much of a knitter but it is an easy peasy pattern.

You can see why I asked my card club lady about it because they don’t look like conventional baby jumpers do they.  I wondered as I was knitting mine about the little mite who would end up wearing it – I will never know of course,  but I do know that every single one will be appreciated for sure and I will take some pics once they start arriving and put them on here.

Our egg hunt went well and the rain held off so that the dinks could go about their hunting in the dry!!! It was a bit of a free for all after and we realised that maybe we had gone a bit mad with the choccies!!! I left them to it and made bacon butties and hot cross buns for the larger kids amongst us lol!!!!. Some of us had delicate heads following the party on Saturday but the brekkies soon sorted that one out!!!

Going back to the jumpers, I watched the kids yesterday – each and every one of them are lucky and have so much. Of course I am grateful and thankful for that but it was pretty humbling watching them and thinking about the crap start in life that others have.

I also have a card to share and  …..

… here it is.

I popped it on the LOTV Ideas To Inspire blog yesterday but didn’t manage to put it on here as I was busy with the kids first thing then we went out to Emma’s partners folks' for lunch (and VERY nice it was too and no cooking for me!!).

I’ve used the fabulous  Land Ahoy image and popped it into it’s own porthole and this image is perfect for all those little sea dogs out there, bless their little hearties lol!!!

The image was coloured in Copics and these are the colours I used -

Skin -  E000, E00, E11, E21

Hair - E25

The rest – B0000, B02, B93, B95, B97, E43, E50, E81, R05, R17, R27, R59,

The papers are all by Nitwits

I bevelled the sentiment – just to do something a bit different really!!

Love you card Dawny but your little jumper is perfect and no matter what we think they look like as long as they go some way to helping these poor little mites, that's fine by me. Hugs x
