Apple and Cinnemon muffins YUM

This is a very quick post today!! It is just to show you my efforts at baking recently!! It’s quite hard for me to bake as I don’t like cakes so I just have to cross my fingers and hope people like them haha!! I did make donut cakes but they were a disaster! They looked like mutants and the filling sank to the bottom! I decided to try my hand at a muffin! I went for Apple and Cinnamon even though I can not stand the smell of cinnamon 😛

They aren’t the most muffiny looking muffins but I was told they were nice haha!! I haven’t decided what to do next though…..something fruity maybe!!

Anyway that’s it for now, I hope you are all looking forward to the next week 🙂

A very well dressed bear!

I keep promising to Blog more often and then life keeps getting in the way 😛 Thank you to all of you who have stuck around, I really do appreciate it!!

This is another fairly short post to update you on the progress of the bear jackets/cardies I’ve been working on! I’m not too sure if they are boy or girl teddys so I don’t want to commit to a cardie or a jacket 😛 So basically both jackets/cardies are finished and just need to be sewn together! This is the part I hate more than anything so I always put it off until I can’t put it off any longer!! But they will definitely be posted by the end of this week YAY.

This isn’t the teddy that the jacket will end up on, he is my very own teddy bear 😛 As you can see it isn’t stitched together but you get the general idea!! I think it’s quite cute!!

Here is the back view! The pattern looked like it was going to be a right pain but it turned out to be quite easy so I was very pleased about that! The pattern can be adapted to make bigger sizes and is actually a pattern for new-born babies!!  The second cardigan is green with a white trim! It was supposed to be all in green but I ran out just as I was about to do the trim so I had to improvise a bit!!

I will get some photos of the complete finished articles as soon as I can! The weather has been glorious here so that helps with the photo taking haha!! My nest project is baby booties for a friends new-born niece! They are going very well and are so cute!!

So that’s it for now, I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend!!

A not very crafy post!

Hello one and all 🙂

I’ve mainly been working on knitting cardigan’s for my cousin’s little boy’s Teddy bears! I have no clue if that sentence is grammatically correct but you get the picture 😉 Anyway i’m almost done with them now! They just need to be sewn together and posted all the way to Switzerland!! I still haven’t quite finished the baby blanket but that’s because of a lot of fiddly sewing!!

I don’t know if any of you saw on the news about the Sea Odyssey spectacular that was in Liverpool a couple of weeks a go? It was based on a true story about the Titanic! It involved GIANT mechanical robot type things walking around Liverpool to music……..i realise how mad this makes me sound but I have proof…….

Can you see it? It probably doesn’t look that big yet……..

ImageThis bad boy is about 50ft tall!! You really don’t get a sense of how big it is until you see it in real life!! It walked for miles all around Liverpool! I only got to see a tiny bit of it as it walked past my street!! There was also a girl giant who was about 20ft tall and a dog too! The event ran over 3 days and the giants had beds to sleep in and everything! The man giant was trying to find the girl giant and in the end they did! They sailed off together!! The story is quite complicated but if you google Liverpool Sea Odysey I’m sure it will explain better than I can 😛

These photos are taken from my local park! I nearly didn’t go and see it but I’m glad I did now 🙂 It was nice to see something like this outside of the City Center!!

And here is a photo of a nice Blossom tree as the giant says good bye 🙂

Well that is all for now! I hope you are all doing well!!

I’ve gone Sugar Skull crazy!!

Once again my Friends this post will be fairly short!! I haven’t had much chance to craft recently but I do have a new project on the go!! It’s a practical project too which is always good!! 😛

I don’t know about all you lovely ladies out there, but I have a horrible time trying to store my necklaces!! If I have them in a jewellery box they seem to get tangled and broken 😦 I don’t know if this just happens to me but it happens all the time! So I thought to myself, how else can I store them?? The solution I have come up with is to hang them on a cork board and hang the cork board up on the wall……well it’s worth a try!!

I’ve had this cork board for a while but I couldn’t think for the life of me how to decorate it! I didn’t want it to just stay like that, that is just not me at all! In the end I decided to at least paint it white as this would make a good base coat!! Inspiration finally came the other day! Why not paint a Sugar skull design on to the cork board?? 😀 GENIUS!!

So that is my plan! I have no clue if this will even work but it’s worth a try! It looks good in my head, but most of my ideas look good in my head….most end up unfinished or going completely wrong :-p

In other news, I’ve almost finished the baby blanket YAY!! I have redesigned it slightly and I’m really pleased with the result! I will take pictures as soon as I can!!

I hope you are all doing well 🙂 Take Care!!

Bunnies and toadstools!

Hello everyone!

So today I’m just stopping by to share the one and only photo I have of my prototype bunny! He still doesn’t have eyes and his arms aren’t attached…..man it has taken forever FOREVER to do! Not helped by the fact I have two other things to knit and a real life job too 😛 Anyway here he is…..

Prototype bunny!

He isn’t looking too bad! I’ve just realised that it would have been cool to get him done before easter!! Oh well! Knitting soft toys is incredibly time-consuming :-S I really wanted to do it more but I’m just not sure I can!!

I’ve also been working on some new things for the shop! I’ve finished a really cute toadstool brooch that I’m really hoping grabs someone’s attention and sells.  That would make my day!!

Toadstool Brooch!

Please ignore my hand on this, I think I need to moisturise or something 😛 Anyway what do you guys think? I think the red bit should have been a bit bigger but it’s not too bad for a first try is it?? I’m selling it for £5 so if you fancy it please feel free to send me a message 🙂

Other than those two little projects I have been working on socks for Teddy Bears! I couldn’t for the life of me find a pattern for bear socks so I had to wing it 😛 The bears also seemed to have VERY big feet bless them!

Bear Socks!

I am waiting to find out if they fit…….I really really hope they do!! I’m also still working on the multi coloured baby blanket which I must get finished soon! Then I have to finish coats for the bears too!! My poor fingers will end up in a claw like shape soon 😛

I’m feeling a little meh at the moment! That is the only way I can really describe it.  I’m not unhappy but there is something that just doesn’t feel quite right……do any of you have this problem??

Oh well i hope you have all had a lovely Easter 🙂 Take Care!!
