here and had to have a go at making a much bigger version for my wee girl. The bow is meant to be right on the top but it made her head look abnormally large so we moved it down a bit. It worked out really well and Miss 5 has trotted off to school wearing it today and was beaming with delight that she was getting lots of ooohs and aaaahs about it. When her teacher asked where she got it, Miss 5 ran over to me and said "this clever lady here made it". Too cute!!
Now as the title mentioned, I have just realised that this is my 100th post! I wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for all your lovely comments and your regular visits. You can't begin to know how much it means to me. Since starting this blog and in turn discovering other colourful, inspirational blogs, it has really made a change in my daily life. It's the little things like buying fun colourful socks instead of my boring old black ones to keep my feet cosy on days like today, it's looking at things that were always in my home but with a different set of eyes, it's the way I have bought op shop treasures and found new places in my home for them, it's the way I carry my camera with me at all times to capture images I love - all these things are small but are making a huge difference. It's funny considering what I had in mind for this blog when I first created it and chose the name. But that's another story...
Before I go I also wanted to say a huge thank you to Barbina, AnaBC and Stitches, Scraps and Sparkles in the Sun for passing on such lovely awards! Thank you ladies - I am chuffed to bits!
Oh one more thing, I have finally signed up for Pinterest. After hearing so much about it I finally took the plunge and wow, why did I wait so long? Talk about gorgeous!!!
Have a fabulous week all.

And speaking of tea cosies, I made yet another one over the weekend! I have a few more teapots to make cosies for and then I will have to wait for another decent sale to purchase more teapots. I like them to fit nicely so I can't just make a random cosy in the hope it will fit any old teapot.
I am off to pick up my crochet hook and finish my cat as part of Annaboo's CAL. And then I really need to make more of an effort to finish my huge blanket. It is absolutely freezing here at the moment, so a lovely big blanket on my bed is what is called for. Not to mention the fact that working on a blanket keeps you toasty warm - just perfect!!!
Have a fabulous week all! See you soon.
