I need to sort this stash out - it is seriously out of control - and this is only half of it!

Sorry for the silence

Nearly 2 weeks of sick bug in the house has taken it's toll - and no knitting or crafting going on! Did manage to a) put the tree up and b) watch the finale of Heroes (and try not to drool too much over perfect Peter!)

Yawn! what a boring knit that was! Fits ok but I'd be tempted to go down a size if there was a next time as it is a bit baggy!

Goodbye Aunty Iona

iona, originally uploaded by Sajona.

North Devon has lost a wonderful character this week. Always stylish, always a laugh and christmas will not be the same without her special poems.
The last time we visited her she was keen to show off her new 'granny bike' and so I present Speedy Gonzalez of Bideford ;)
God Bless Iona

I already have 2 pairs of silver grey evening shoes but I just had tohave these - £29 from La Redoute! Not really meant to be worn with Jeans of course!

Cute toddler moment

DD went to her first very big firework display this evening - I spent most of the time watching her as she was so into it! Even getting her out the car when we got hme she was pointing at the sky and saying ' woooooo, a-bang. a-bang!'

My little test card girl

, originally uploaded by Sajona.

I jumped at the chance of joining in a craftster swap based on LIfe on Mars (being a 1970s fan and all that) so I made this little doll based on the Knitted Babes designs by Claire Garland..she is as accurate as I could make it after studying photos of the real test card girl (

Thank you BBC4

There was a re-showing of Abigail's Party last night - so I managed to get the back of Penelope done - plus sit there quoting with DH :
'And I tell you're going to see the difference!..ok?'

The Breastfeeding manifesto

i breastfed all my babies,my last one till 16 months, and therefore totally support the Breastfeeding Manifesto - check it out and sign up here:

Argh! old men drivers

Is there a new driving code for the town I live in that I have appeared to have missed? The one that says 'No longer give way to the right at roundabouts'??? I had 3 near misses yesterday - and ALL of them old men!
OK rant over ;)

I chugged away at the worlds most boring piece of knitting last night - miles of 2x2 rib. It did mean I could watch telly at the same time though without losing my place!
I am stash busting - my stash pile of yarn and fabric is shameful..will take a pic sometime!

I'm back!

Well I'll try and be a good girl and actually blog on here from now on - toyed with another site but as all the knitters and crafters are on blogger I feel more at home here!
