One a Day – Episode 21

As promised I have returned with a One a Day Episode and not only am I posting but I actually made 7 hexipuffs this week. Which I think is a massive accomplishment with the week I have had. But more of that tomorrow.

I am so happy that I managed a week back on track with 7 hexipuffs but I have to say thank goodness I already had one cast onto the needles because it took a lot of will power to pick up those needles again after the huge break I have had. I still love the little hexipuffs, they are cute and squishy and still make me all giddy inside but the knitting part, well the enjoyment of that has taken a downward slide. I want to, want to knit them but I have a bit of hexipuffitis, and who knows how far behind I have fallen on my schedule. I am so scared to look at how much catch up knitting I will need to do.

Oh well here goes

My total hexipuff count is 114

I still need to make 270

And I have 219 days to make it

Arrrggghh NO!!

I have so miss calculated along the way I thought I only had 209 to make no wonder I seemed to still be on track in reality I’m oh so far behind.

So I have 51 hexipuffs to make up. but this week it’s just 7 and a few hexipuffs having an identity crisis and playing at being cupcakes this week.

mmm hexipuff cupcakes yum yum. The perfect photo for the weekend we have had I’ll be back tomorrow with a lot of wonderful photos and some exciting news.

Before I head off to visit all the other lovely one a dayers and catch up reading all their awesome blogs. I just wanted to share my little parcel I sent off to Counrty Fragrance for the Initial Heart Swap over here.

I loved my little hearts I made for our house so much that I made one for my swap partner too. I added some Choccies that are Australian made and owned as I have been being a sneaky little swap partner and visiting my swap friend to find out things about her and knowing that she is on a health kick too I also included some sugar free chocolate as a healthy alternative for valentines day.

I loved this swap it was so much fun and Cheryl has a lot of wonderful swaps so if your like me and you love little surprises in the mail go over and find a swap that takes your fancy.

Ok off to check out my One a day partners in crime.

What a lovely Weekend

Friday morning I was busy cleaning the house (oh so fun) and I heard the door bell ring, Mr C went and answered it and I hear him call ‘Oh Bebe it’s for you’ with a touch of grandeur in his voice. I was so excited, I bounded to the front door dropping the broom right there. And I was not disappointed it was from my lovely swap partner for the heart Swap. I was so excited I ripped open the parcel straight away and was totally blown away, by the wonderful present I had received

Isn’t she just adorable!!! I totally totally love her. I was blown away by how sweet my swap partner had been. Lisa had also included some other lovely goodies, but arrgh they were consumed before a photo could be taken, but you can check them out here. Did you see how lucky I was. And that Freckle was the best freckle I have ever had, so creamy I want another one right now actually. But what I loved most about this little present was that it was an elephant. My late mother collected elephants and as you may remember she died young and still less that a year ago and since her passing elephants have come to mean a lot to me and this one bought a little tear to my eye. I just love her and she will be treasured for years to come. I could gush abouth her forever but she was only the beginning to my lovely weekend

 Sunday I took a drive up the Dandenongs to meet a friend. I love the Dandenongs

It’s not just for the amazing views, even on an overcast day you can see for ever

But it’s this feeling. The feeling of magic. I love the closeness of the trees. The winding of the roads

I feel like I am in a magical forest straight out of a Disney movie and if I just keep looking close enough fairies will appear. And so I relished the chance to meet Miss Pos in the magical forest for Coffee with Little Princess. I love when you catch up with an old friend you have not seen in a while and it feels like no time has gone at all. We drank coffee and chatted the morning away surrounded by the beauty and magic of the forest.

And of course a lovely weekend can not be complete without some hooky knitty goodies

and so I hooked and knitted up some beautiful flowers.

The first of many to come.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend too
