Very Special Something......

I've been working on a new washcloth pattern, this time something crochet for a change....
All that's left to do is weave in some ends and she's all done.....
Also, seen as though we had a very special trip to town this morning for a very special something I thought that Miss Connie needed a few little goodies to keep her occupied.....
So while both bubs slept this morning I whipped up some scribble pads to load into a bag with some crayons...
These pads are super quick and easy, all you have to do is sew a few random pieces of paper together with card-stock on the out side and hey presto, instant scribble book....
Now, the very special something that we had to go to town for this morning was a tasting of my newest range of preserves....
The day was a huge hit!!!! My little table sat in the doorway of the local florist and had all passers by stopping for a look... Out of everyone who tasted my products 90% bought them, gotta love those odds.... So after a very big day, smiling and chatting up a storm, it's time for this Mumma to curl up on the lounge with a good book and a nicely brewed cup of tea...
Hugs....... Jodie.......... :)

  7. Who wouldn't want to buy, with such a nicely presented stall. Well worth the effort. Your lastest wash cloth looks great. Did Connie enjoy her little scribble books? They look like good fun for a little girl. I bet Millie wanted to play as well.

  9. Good for you Jodie! That is fantastic and not at all surprising. I hope you get to have a bit of a rest this weekend because it sounds like you might be slaving over a hot stove again before too long. X
