Through all the busyness of being a Mum, I managed to make this little bag yesterday whilst the babe was a sleeping. It was a nice experiment and I will try some more blocks soon and they too might become bags. Today it's been big hexagons, I'll show them soon. Happy weekend.

Ok. If you seriously love Liberty so much, perhaps you could pop into Scanlan & Theodore and pick up these little darlings. Or, you could just go to the newsagent and pick up this week's Grazia magazine and just dream about a new installment of gorgeousness.
And, can you believe this fabric is still going strong? I had a dress made by my grandmother in this very same print about, oooooo, 32 years ago. Then in my twenties I had a very dainty little puff sleeved blouse in the purple colourway. For some reason it reminds me of rice bubbles. Not sure why? Must have eaten rice bubbles in my dress as a wee one!

Where have I been? Crocheting up a storm, falling madly in love with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (that's yarn for those not in the know), sewing a bit here and there, looking after the sick baby girl and nursing a very sore ear myself. How about you?
I finished the blankie above a couple of weeks ago - very Alicia Paulson? It's the pattern on her website and I just loved doing it. But, it is small. Cradle sized, 'cause this gal gets bored with repetition, yummy purple/magenta yarn and a whole lot of dc-ing and a bit more.
I'll show some more crocheting this week and also some of the sewing I've done - another Oliver + S pattern - the Bubble dress, super, super sweet. Hope your week is a Hot Diggety Dog!
