Making more for them - a quick 1-2 can be made very night.

I have finished a kina cardigan for a baby still to be born - used 2.5 balls of double knit and took me just over a week! I will make another one soon.

The husband did not have much to say when I pointed to his new coffee machine :)

I have new calendars, diaries and notecards courtesy of the boys- I love this fundraiser and am so delighted with their amazing artwork. I embarrassed them by buying so much - "Mum. Nobody ordered as much as you" they both said! I adore stationery
And things like this! Easy Christmas presents I think!
