Oooh, ooooh, jumping up and down in excitement!


I have had some very exiting news!
No, not the cushions in the picture, although it is quite exciting to see them as they are another things finished from my LIST! They are a birthday present for my Mum, shes only been waiting for them since May!
I have some other exciting news. Some time ago on one of the Craft sites I saw an advert asking for suggestions for projects for a new book entitled "One Yard Wonders!" It is to be a book giving projects that can be done with One Yard of fabric.
There is already a book called One Skein Wonders but as I can't knit for toffee I had never heard of it! Mind you I did once knit a pair of socks.
Anyway so I sent off a project idea and I have just heard that they want it!
Hurray, hurray, ( sorry just jumping up and down again as I can't quite believe it!)
