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 evening............it 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 strawberries.........you 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 craftgossip.com 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:->
