Hope you all got spoilt rotten.......
We had a very low key day - napping, crafting and just taking it easy. I made a Valentines themed dessert for us this really didn't last too long:-)

Please excuse the yukky color of the photo - don't know what happened there.
I made heart shaped jello jigglers - a favorite of the kids. I used silicone molds for the first time ever (yes, I know I'm behind the times) - they are fantastic. I forsee many uses for them...jello, hard candy, chocolate, ice cubes. I may even get some when they go on clearance to make soaps and those cute crayons we're seeing everywhere at the moment.
I then topped it off with a family favorite - chocolate dipped can't go wrong with those....yummy!!!

I also made 10 of these cuties for a swap I'm taking part in. I love how they came together - almost good enough to eat!!!

I used a Heather Bailey pattern to make them. I usually find her patterns quite intricate, but this one came together very easily.

A while ago I mentioned that I had finished the owl hat I was knitting, but that sewing the eyes on was taking me an age. Well, It's done. I like it and I will definately make it again, but I will do a few things differently. The one I made would fit a mans head - I guess hubby has just scored another hat:-) I will reduce the number of stitches I cast on and I'll make it about an inch and a half shorter. The owls are too cute for words though. Infact, I'm trying to work out how I can work them into a scarf so that I can make a matching set...........hmm, never done that before, but I'm determined to get it right. For anyone interested in the hat pattern, it was a freebie that I found while browsing the website.

Enjoy Presidents Day tomorrow - we're lucky enough to have hubby home for the day. His company get the day off.
Until next time - keep crafting:->


  1. I LOVE THAT HAT! and the strawberries look devine!...You are so creative!

  2. Your owl hat turned out wonderful! I've seen that pattern before and thought about making it. Was it hard? I've done cables a couple times.
