Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken, lay a little egg for me!

Been making these, I'm going to use them instead of party bags at Clarks and Solomans parties which we've got over the next few weeks. Eden and her friends usually give each other gifts for Christmas and Easter. You leave a hole in the bottom and put in an egg. Don't look too closely some of them look quite menacing up close!

Charity knitting

We are having a "Fairtrade Fortnight" at the church where we have our knit and natter meetings to promote fairtrade products, so I've been going along and trying to promote the knitting group. Here's some of the things we've knitted since Christmas

The boys and myself have been knitting things for Samaritans Purse who do the Christmas Shoeboxes, I'd love to say that I knitted it all but this is just one of the piles of garments given in, these are mainly jumpers. We went to the handover of all the garments and were made very welcome.

Here's most of the stuff, Soloman and Cody are in the picture wearing some of the hand puppets, hats and scarves.
