A Scrapbook Layout At Last

It is my first one of this month but yesterday I finally managed to get back into doing some scrapbooking.

This is Daisy when she was a little smaller than she is now. She climbed on the settee but couldn't quite get down. She still can't do stairs.

The papers are Making Memories Noteworthy, flowers are Prima Essential Tea and Silk and the letters are Making Memories.

Mystery Sock Clue 2

Mystery Sock Clue 2, originally uploaded by Kerry's Socks.

This is the second part of the November mystery sock challenge over on Ravelry. Clue 3 will be released tomorrow and I'm thinking it is probably the foot (obviously really DOH)

Mystery Socks Clue 1

This is clue one from a mystery sock challenge I am taking part in.

I absolutely hate fairisle knitting so I wasn't too impressed when I first saw the requirements but that all melted away when I realised that the different colours are knit in rows of their own with some slipped stitches so there was no messing about. I did get into a bit (or a lot) of a tangle though but I figured that since it wasn't for a huge portion of the sock then I could cope with it.

The second clue is the rest of the leg which is just 2x2 rib down to the heel flap which has the patterning again and then the turning of the heel.

Today on HSMSHS the word of the day is clean. Mmmm they're having a laugh. 2 dogs and 4 kids - we don't do clean!!!

Actually I'm telling a lie. Daisy has had 4 baths in 3 days. My little bundle of fluffiness has sprinkled like niagra falls in her cage several times and on saturday we woke up to a poo party because Charlie hadn't been able to last the night. It is extremely unusual for him but it was probably my fault for not giving him long enough in the yard before bed.

My boring picture is of a bottle of cleaning fluid (not for the dogs I might add).
