|Kitty cat teapot|
This little mouse is a fake teapot! She has a handle and a spout, but the spout is filled in. Even though she is a fake, I love her. She reminds me of the 'sylvanian family' I played with when i was little.
My new owl.... Helga.
I found Helga in a charity shop in Frodsham, I HAD to own her. Turns out she is a vintage Sallie Robinson pot pourri owl. I have been looking for it on the Internet, and I cant find one exactly the same. That means she's special :) As a migraine sufferer, I wont be using it for smelly things, but just a pretty thing to own.
This cardigan I'm knitting is going to take a long time. If only I could give up work and knit full time. The pattern isn't hard, but each row is different so you have to follow it quite closely. I'm used to watching TV at the same time but I need more concentration for this. Here it is so far anyway:

A lovely customer at work, my favourite customer actually, got me a little present the other day. She noticed how I'm always cold, no matter how many layers I wear, so she got me these little hand warmers to keep in my pockets. How sweet! They're those ones that have the little copper disk inside that you click and the whole thing heats up and goes solid. There's clever science behind it no doubt, but I call it magic.

I went to see a play earlier this year (the best play ever) based on some of these stories, 6 or 7 of them I think. So many short stories in this book that are very entertaining, weird and a bit creepy, I love it!
Has anyone been watching Kirsty Allsopp's craft programme? I was chuffed to see Mr X Stitch on the latest episode. I follow his blog and his twitter and I think he's brilliant. For those who don't know, in the show Kirsty takes up a new craft and enters a piece in a village fate/competition. To be honest, I've been shocked when she's actually won a couple of prizes (and just as shocked when I see what a sore loser she is!). It's all meant to be anonymous but I just cant see how she's won some of them. A burnt cake won best in show.... HOW?
