Quick post to share the baby blankets which I made for my cousin's twins: Rose and Violette.
I use Sirdar Snuggly 3761 pattern 2, 3ply blanket with a couple of changes... I used Debbie Bliss wool instead of sidar snuggly starting with 136ch instead of 171 and for the border foundation row I used single rather than double.
Weirdly the colours I choose matched their names!
My aunt took them over at the weekend and they loved them :) Now I just have to get over to Brussels at some point to see them all!
You might have heard of this site before, http://www.todryfor.com has been featured in lot's of interiors magazines and it's easy to see why! The site features loads of great designs on tea towels for great prices. Some of the designs I've seen as art prints for £30 else where and are under a tenner as a tea towel! What's not to like!
So far I've bought one tea towel from them and had it framed (these designs are just too nice). I'm planning on getting a couple more to make into cushions, cover old tote bags etc. Endless possibilities. After that I might even buy one to dry the dishes with...
At the weekend a couple of us got some rather sage dating advice from Nic, a 21 year old male. He’s the younger brother of one of best friends and I’ve been friends with him for a couple of years now.

That’s pretty much it. But then women build this whole load of other stuff up around it”
On texting: If you want to text text; if they like you then they’ll text backKeep it short, if it’s long and rambley you’ll sound nervous and desperateYou have breasts they won’t care if you were the last person to text a couple of days ago
I’d like to finish this post with a quote from Nic (from when I told him I was blogging about his rules): “hahayourclearlynotgettingthepointheremiss..... THEREARENORULES!!! Just beyourselfandkeepitsimpleJ”
