Here it is finally!

Well I've posted the present the other day so it should be arriving soon and I think it's safe to post it on here now =P I had already posted it on GetStitchy anyway and on my myspace=)
Soooo here it is!




I've put alot of blood sweat and tears into it lol (not literally ofcourse!)=P I hope she likes it anyway=) I felt really bad as I wasn't able to post it in time, she said it was fine, but obviously I still feel bad well aslong as she likes it... and it gets there! It's happend a few times that I've sent something out now that hasn't even arrived and it's really annoying. I sent Vik a package for christmas and she hasn't got it so I'm guessing someone took it and my dad never received his fathersday presents last year!
Ohhhhhh and I have some fantastic news! WE GOT A FLATTTTTTTT!! We got the keys for it this wednesday and we have been steaming some wallpaper off of the livingroom walls today (after we went up to the castle to volunteer) and it's taking forever haha but it's worthe it!
Here are some pictures of it =D

Sneakpeek



As I can't show you the full project I'm working on because it's still a secret I thought I'd give away a little sneakpeek=P I'm about 95% done with the knitting and then I have to felt it all and sew in the lining in time for thursday or friday so it can be posted in time for mothersday!
I really hope it'll all felt okay and that it'll look as I'm hoping it will end up looking haha we shall see=)
Tomorrow I'll be off working at the castle again and the weather forecast said it's going to rain... great! We haven't had any rain so far though so I can't complain I guess, but I still hope it won't rain too bad or for long=)
Oh btw, after I have felted the bag I was planning on just shaping it by putting an object in the project and leave it to dry standing on a binliner (plastic rubbish bag)... is that the right way to do it or is there a better way? I really haven't been able to find any online if there is.
I hope everybody has had a nice (bank holiday) weekend=)

Mothersday secrets

I've been really busy this past week knitting a mothersday present, going up to the castle more then usual as they needed some more help getting things ready for the opening of the gardens last thursday. I went on monday and wednesday, was supposed to go on tuesday aswell but David's muscles were aching really badly and considering I'm not really strong enough (yet) to slam poles into the ground I stayed home aswell cause I'd just feel useless lol I've actually got myself a bit of a tan(+lots of freckels) since I've been working there =D
Anyhow I can't really show you my progress of the mothersday present or tell you what it is, because my mom may be reading this and I don't want to spoil the surprise =) It is however my first ever felting project so I hope it'll all felt ok and that I've knitted it the right size. The pattern I thought of using turned out to be useless so I now I'm just winging it and hoping it'll turn out ok lol! I'm really loving the yarn I'm using it's very colourfull and it's nice to work with yarn that keeps amazing you with the different colour combinations it's got =)
I'll post pictures of it after mothersday ofcourse=) I still have to find some fabric to use on this mothersday present. I hope my sewing will look abit better then it did last time I tried haha but then again that was only my first time=)
Today we've got dull weather but all of last week it's been sunny and really warm and I think it's going to be the same next week so I'm not complaining! I recently found this site where you can listen to music and keep track of the things you've been listening to and it's awesome it's called Last.FM and it's completely free so go check it out if you like music as much as I do. You can find me here on that site =) I've only got two friends so far haha so it'd be fun to get some more on there!
I hope everyone will have a great weekend and that it's filled with beautiful weather and happiness=)
