A night on the tiles….

I didn’t get to do my FO Friday this week as I had to dash home from work and get ready to go out!!! I don’t go out that often…well not to town, we usually just go to the pub and do the quiz πŸ˜› I went to my pals house to have a few drinks and get ready then we all hopped on the bus into town!!

First stop a bar called Lloyd’s for some pre night out food!!

Laura and Hannah in Lloyd's Bar!

Then it was off to Modo’s for cocktails! I don’t really drink much and I usually can’t drink cocktails but I did have a glass or two of sex on the beach!! It kinda tasted fruity!!! My friend Christine got some special shot that was all smokey! It was pretty cool!!

ooo smokey!

We went to a couple of other bars but they were so crowded I didn’t want to risk getting my camara out!! It was a Bank Holiday that day because of the Royal Wedding so most people had been out probably all day drinking…..bit drunk by this point haha!! We ended up in the Krazy House were I got to dance to a bit of Green Day and various other random tracks haha!

Me and Laura in the Krazy House!

Me and Joanne in the Krazy House!

It was a good night but I had a headache from the start which was sooo not good!! I always have a good time though if everyone else is πŸ™‚

I’m hoping to get my Sack Boy done properly this week! I have decided to try new smaller eyes! I’m also having difficulty with the mouth at the moment! Which is odd as I’ve made one before and I don’t remember having such problems!! Hopefully i can post pics this friday so you can all tell me what you think πŸ™‚

Hope you have had a lovely saturday!! Take Care!


Wonderful world of Sack Boy!! WIPW!

Work In progress Wednesday

Evening everyone!! This will be a very quick post as I have a ton of things to do and so little time (as the saying goes :-P) So I haven’t yet started my cardigan…..I’m still trying to decide on the wool :-S Does anyone have any ideas or fave wools they work with?? I want something nice and soft as I plan to wear the cardigan a lot *fingers crossed*!!

My WIPW Piece is my Sack Boy πŸ˜€ He is coming a long very nicely!! I have to knit him a couple of accessories and then stuff him and sew him together!

Sack Boy Skin!

This is really not a very good picture :-S I really need to stop taking photos super quick and actually take time to make them look nice!! Sorry Guys!! This isn’t the wool I used on the first one, I didn’t make a note of it as usual (silly me) and now I can’t remember or find it!! I hope he looks ok!

So off I go to stuff and sew!! Check out Tamis Blog for more super cool stuff πŸ™‚

Whimsies Whimsies everywhere!!

Today I have managed to be quite crafty….not in a sly sort of way in a “lets get creative” sort of way πŸ˜› I’ve started my second Sack Boy for my Friends Sisters birthday!! I’m going to customise him with a little heart I think!! I couldn’t get the exact wool I wanted but hopefully it will still be ok!!

I also started lesson 2 of my Art, Heart and Healing online class! Unfortunately my printer decided to stop working today….which was a pain as I needed to print out a photo of myself! I am going to have to go back to that bit at a later date!! So I skipped to the next bit WHIMSIES!!! I really really want to be able to draw these πŸ˜›

Whimsy Carol

Im not too pleased with the mouth at th moment….its a bit too clowny for my liking I think! I’m also having trouble making my simple shapes (for the body) look less like a child drew them :-S Its usually at this point I give up (throw a tantrum) and go back to knitting but not today……I tried to add another Whimsy!

Whimsy number two!

If I’m honest the body on this one is even worse than the first one πŸ˜› I should have quit whilst I was a head haha!! Maybe they will look better when they are coloured in?? I actually like doing the colouring in bit!! I’ve had to stop for a bit now so I’m going to go back to my sack boy!! Hopefully I will have some photos of him soon too!!

Hope you all have a lovely Saturday πŸ™‚

P.SΒ  The spellchecker isn’t working (again) so I do apologise for any mistakes!!

Pink heart FO Friday!

I’m really pleased that I have a Finished Object to show you today woo!! I’m pretty pleased with it to! It’s a pretty bad photo though, I rushed it a bit in the fading light so it’s a touch blurry and the light wasn’t that great in the end anyway πŸ˜› TYPICAL haha!!

Heart Purse

Ta-Da πŸ˜€ It actually looks like a purse!! If you have read any of my previous posts you will know I’ve had some issues with attaching the zippers tot he purse but I think this one went well!! The heart actually looks red on here but it’s not its pink (damn bad lighting!!) Do you guys think it needs anything else? A charm or dangly thing?? I thought I could try to make a little dangly heart….would that be too much??

That’s it for this week really! I’m hoping to start my personal projects this week too πŸ˜€ EXCITED!! Hop on over to Tamis Blog to see some more lovely finished objects πŸ™‚

Hope you all have a lovely Easter πŸ™‚

A Cheats version of WIPW!

Work In progress Wednesday

Good Morning Everyone πŸ™‚ Sooooo today I’m afraid I have to cheat on my WIPW piece….aww don’t get mad!! πŸ˜› I’ve decided to start a cardigan for myself! This will be the biggest thing I’ve ever even attempted to make and I’m excited yet nervous haha! I haven’t picked up my wool yet which is why I’m technically cheating….I haven’t cast on a single stitch yet….but I wanted to show you what it WILL be like when I’m done haha!!

I’m coming out in a cold sweat just thinking about it πŸ˜› Its going to be an autumn cardi…..although I actually wear cardis all through the year! I want to try to keep away from red because I ALWAYS pick red for myself!! Anyone have any colour suggestions?? I am kind of thinking neutral….but I don’t usually do neutral colours! I’m also thinking I will try to add an aplique to it if it all goes to plan!! Make it more personal to me!! You can get the pattern from HERE. I think its called Berroco.com!

Anyway there is my cheats version of WIPW,Β  I hope you can all let me off πŸ™‚ As usual check out Tamis Blog for more fun projects being worked on as we speak!!

Whilst I’m here I may as well mention that I’m about to update Snow Bunny’s Knits Etsy shop (Finally) so feel free to have a little nosey round!!

Have a lovely sunny day everyone πŸ˜€
