Amazing  twenty one years ago and my last baby was born my daughter Eleanor Juliet pearl rosebud , such a little sweetie and I cannot believe where all the years have gone. Today she came around and asked for pancakes for a special birthday breakfast then we went to Wymmondham for a lovely lunch in the Mad Hatters Tea Shop which was cute full of homemadey cakes and toasted sandwiches. The weather was cold and very windy but we are really fortunate here in Norfolk to of escaped the awful floods that have been abating large parts of the country. Here in the East of England much of the bad weather has bypassed us and we have been able to carry on as normal. I have some packs of candles , torches , stove and bits and bobs should all that change but so far luck is on our side.

For the early part of this year I have been reorganising my craft supplies and deciding what to do with all my wares. I really want to use up all current wool and material before buying more and I am now assembling lists in a what to do order. I have at least six unfinished projects that need completing for a start. Before christmas I made my nan and my brother each a quilt and now my mother has asked for one. My daughter is always asking for crocheted blankets so I have plenty to be going on with. In keeping with a lot of other activity on some bloggs I made myself a poncho all out of gorgeous rowan aran wool and a couple of balls of cotton which is at present keeping me nice and toasty.

I was quite pleased with this as my first aqttempt without a pattern and I purposely didnt want a traditional V type poncho.However I have done one of those for my nan and she was real pleased with it. They hook up nice and quick in a couple of evenings and now I am set to make a bright yellow one for springxx

Hope you have all been having fun out in bloggy land and I have missed out a lot as I haven’t been in touch with my blogg for months but have plenty to write about and show you all , please keep me informed of what you are all up to , take care and have a lovely weekendxx

About pippamoore1961

I love to knit sew and craft, paint papier mache and explore my creativity. Jogging alongside me each day are my two spaniels poppy and smudge and our small kitten mumpo, i'm married and have three grown up children. I love to do all this whilst listening to radio three but occaqssionaly radio four , i also love all music from the sixties and seventies, in my mind everything went downhill after that!! however that;s just a personal opinion.

    Hi! Happy birthday to your daughter. My son just turned 23. I need to organize my fabrics. Hopefully soon. I just love your poncho. I have a burgundy poncho I bought at a second hand store. It’s wool and hooded and very warm. Take care!

    Happy 21st Birthday to Eleanor…as for you auntiepippa you must be very young. Its not one of those things that you think about with blogging friends. I suppose I think thet they are all as old as me…..my eldest is 55, then 53 and youngest 41…..you are right..where does the time go.
    take card, stay dry and above all stay safe

  3. Nice to see you back AuntiePippa! Love the poncho, just what is needed for the miserable days we are having at present. Looking forward to seeing what else you have been making!
