After a month long expedition to Ecuador my little sis is back and it's like she was never away. She had a brilliant time and came home decked out in alpaca wool, coat, hat, socks :)
I was not out of her thoughts proven by my beautiful gifts a lovely handmade scarf and beaded ring.

Yeh! I'm very excited my sister is back today from a month long volunteer trip to Ecuador with a company called Camps International. I've missed her so much, even though she's ten years younger than me were very close, she's one of my best friends - I can't wait to see the changes in her, including her tan :)

Had to wave goodbye today to one of my favourite pieces of art work, to be fair it was my uncles (he also painted it) I was only borrowing it whilst he moved house but I've become quite attached to it. The question is; what to put in the plain space left behind on my wall?

My mums been busy making baby cardigans and blankets for friends - it seems like everyone is having babies, was there something in the water late last year? I've finally convinced her to join the Eskdale Gifts brand and start selling her makes on Folky with me. There is not much on there right now as I've just ordered some new packaging and business cards I thought I would wait before adding anymore new items...expect lots of goodies online soon, including mums makes :)
Meanwhile this week I've been working with lots of colours, (bright, bold, primary, I thing I'm addicted to colours, especially when it comes to wool buying) there's a little taster photo below.
Enjoy your week

Here I am spending the morning making another peg bag. I have done this smaller for 2 reasons. 1; I want to make it quicker so that I can work on refining my original pattern. Number 2; is that I have been commissioned to make 3 bigger versions of these peg bags for a friend of my mums and I want to make sure the colours and design meet her specifications. Here is what I've done so far :)

So happy today had such a lovely - and busy - day with my little mister Pj now he's back from his holidays. Because I'm feeling so good i have decided to share this picture of us (along with Santè the dog) having a quick rest before we went back to playing football. Hope everyone reading this has had a lovely and fulfilling day like me! Now I'm off to put my feet up and crochet some butterflies :)
I'm very happy today, after nearly a month away I get to see my gorgeous mister Pj, I've missed him so much and I'm all set for a day of painting, playing and for the first time; potty training! Wish me luck :)
Although not quite as cute as my little man these mini penguins are adorable! They must have taken some patience and talent to achieve.
