awards and guess what we woke up to...

It's the best pic i can get at the moment, but our cat has had kittens, four of them, two are grey and two are ginger, the are so cute and all ready have loads of fur so i think they are going to be fluff balls like their mum.
Also i have been awarded a blog award from Incy Wincy Sam. Thank you Sam, now i have to award it to five other blogs i read, but this is so hard to do , so i'm just going to say its for everyone who takes the time to read my blog.

Thank you....

to Sam at Incy Wincy, me and Sam came across each others blogs and decided on a mini swap as i loved her buttons so much. Sam sent me not one but two sets of lovely hair bobbles. These are so cute, along with selling lovely buttons Sam also makes great cusions among other lovely things.
So thank you to Sam.

Also i'd like to say a big thank you to Penny at sewtakeahike who has been helping me with my crochet, i wish i could crochet like Penny does, she has some lovely crochet string market bags in her etsy shop too, if they are still there that is, they go fast.

my new no more plastic bag and other things

My dear friend Penny makes these lovely bookmarks, heres one in use in my Diva's don't knit book which i am just loving reading right now.
I ordered one from Penny's etsy shop and she sent me TWO , how nice was that so i think i am going to give one to Laura as she is a corner turner, i cant stand that.
Then..... best of all is my new no more plastic bag shopper bag made again by Penny . Penny started making these a few weeks ago and is selling out as soon as she is listing them, they really are so good, great price too. I asked Penny if she could make one up for me as i had missed out on her listing,i got to choose my colours and asked for something shabby chic, pinks greens, creams etc, well i couldn't have picked better myself, i just LOVE the coulours that Penny picked for me and can't wait to go out and use my new bag, it also all wraps up to pop in your handbag too.

Thank you so much Penny i love it.
