REMEMBER HOW.......

..... I did/could not say .. NO.. to my brother ? WELL... seems I cannot say it to my mother either!!

 A couple of years ago my mother started knitting a baby blanket ..  it got put down and picked up quite a few times .. mostly due to health issues ... then she used the wool for something else .. and so it went. THEN recently she decided it MUST be finished ...... so extra wool was purchased and the knitting finished .... THEN of course .. it needed to be sewn together ... I am not sure if I was ASKED or TOLD that I was going to sew it together ....



seems mothers are among those ... WHO MUST BE OBAYED xx

I finished the second part of grandson no 2 Christmas wish list...





.....the purple elephant is now flying to Australia (his mum is hiding the parcels until December xx ).... now I just have the last part of his request to sort out x

Do you remember that last year I made my daughter-in-law a hanging of a partridge in a pear tree...


well now it is the two turtle doves...


...when I looked up the colour of the doves they are a grey/brown ... and I don't have anything like it ... SO as this is.... using up the stash year .. I gave my self permission to be creative x

Now .. to get sewing ... before my mother finds me something else to do xx

Mothers are very hard to disobey aren't they, and they know it. That's a stunning blanket though and I love the purple elephant

Wow! Gorgeous projects! The blanket is incredible and the elephant is so cute! Love your turtle doves too, though I'm trying not to think about Christmas just yet ;)
