Hi


So im back, I did not expect to stay away for quite so long, hope you all are all well. So what have I been up to? Well its been a busy time for me for me for almost 15months I have been having 4-5 hours of broken sleep a night with my baby because of her eczema, as you can imagine this would take its toll on your body. I too now am suffering with some kind of possible stress related  allergy I have a itchy rash and its driving me crazy.

  Things have improved with the sleep situation now, so not all doom and gloom and she now is mostly sleeping up to twelve hours at night which is marvellous! One milestone and then another she is also walking which is lovely to see. Hopefully she will outgrow her eczema soon!!

I have been able to indulge in a bit of crafting and have been enjoying making hats I made this one for Holly has the ones in the shop don't fit her head properly. I made it with my luxury merino wool stash. I brought this wool with a few other balls in the sale at John Lewis.





This beautiful shiny yarn this is going to hopefully be turned into something nice for my snail mail buddies. I finally sent all my snail mail, which was posted late due to me feeling blah at the moment

Lastly I won a giveaway which made my day. I won these beautiful earrings from the beautiful Sandra at San D blog spothttp://sandradunn.blogspot.co.uk/

So you’re all up to speed with what I have up to, what have you been up to? Let me know. Hope you all had a nice week and hope to catch you all soon ♥

  1. Hi dear Joy, so glad to see you posting again and feeling more with it. I'm also glad to hear that baby is doing much better and you are not only able to get some much needed sleep but that you are back to crafting. You are doing better than I am! lol. That hat for baby is lovely. The wool must be so soft and the colours are very nice. I also like the sparkly wool that you are working with. Last but not least, I love those earrings you've won. They remind me of the Canadian maple leaf!

  4. Hi Joy!! I smiled when I saw your blog in my Bloglovin feed today :) I am glad to hear that you are getting more sleep. I was blessed with sleepy head babies that loved sleep just as much as I did. I was busy this fall with my guild's quilt show (I chaired a committee) and boy was I relieved when it was over in October. I finished up two bags for Christmas presents and have 2 more to finish up. I feel really good about my holiday shopping and should have everything done on schedule - YAY! Doesn't it feel good to win a giveaway?
