JAM PACKED! with Made It’s and more

It’s not often that I feel so full of energy on a Monday morning – especially not after a weekend filled with all thing WEDDING! (not mine of course, but that of my sister-in-law/BFF and new brother-in-law) But, today the sun is shining despite that fact that it’s almost winter, and the rush of post wedding bliss is still running high!

I have so much to “show and tell” – what with the wedding, prizes received and prizes going out, and of course *rubs hands with glee*  the new Made It challenge entries but I run the risk of waxing on and on – especially given my chirpy mood this morning –  so instead, I will just post the pics and let them pretty much speak for themselves.

First up…some wedding pics! These are really some (not-so-good quality)  “behind the scenes” pics taken on cell phones, so I will share the real-McCoy ones with you when they are ready.  But I can tell you in the meantime, the setting was sensational, the ceremony was heartful & beautiful…the entire day was magical! I promise to give the full love story soon ♥


The beautiful bride Krystal and her gorgeous little flower girls, about 10 minutes before showtime!

A closer look at the cowl

Heritage Trellis Lace Cowl by Knitxpressions

Welcome to Knitxpression and thank you for entering the Made It challenge! The title of her post made me smile –.A Gift For Me – as I know that there are many of you out there that feels the same way I do. For me??!  I think we feel less guilty about sitting back knitting/crocheting the day away, feet tucked in with a cuppa on hand, letting the dishes pile up and the kids get filthy if we make goodies for everyone anyone else other than ourselves! Pffffffft to that I say! Good for you!!! I have become a huge fan of cowls and this Heritage Trellis lace is stunning!

Enjoy your trip to New Zealand x



Slipper Socks by Rainbow Junkie Corner

Jane is back (somehow finding the time between whipping up stunning gifts for her top blog supporters and her other gazillion projects) to share with us her newly finished, beautifully beaded, knitted sock-slippers!  Knitted socks have come a loooong way since when I was a kid and the ones my Gran used to make – these ones are super-stylish, playful,  PLUS they won’t break your neck!!! Pop over and read Jane’s post for a nifty way to make sure you stay grounded!


I’ve just recently met (well, through Planet Blog anyway) the fun, craaaazy Gray from Crochet by Gray and I LOVE her posts!!! She is funny, colouful and very talented – my kinda combo! This is her first time entering the Made It with these two fabulous crochet creations and I’m so happy that you will get to know her too (if you don’t already of course) and enjoy her blog as much as I do!
