Now have a couple of new projects on the go, I only originally popped into our local craft shop to pick up a couple of balls of wool for a new baby cardigan for friend. Ended up buying wool and new patterns, this cardi for the baby, I love cardigans that do up with one button and then found this gorgeous gorgeous pattern for L. Love the squirrel hoodie but starting with rabbit cardigan. I'm using Sirdar Snuggly yarn as L as very sensitive skin. So far have done the back and started the front it is long time since I've knitted a picture but I am enjoying it.
Now those that know me know that when it comes to craft and books I am a bit of hoarder and housework isn't top of my list of things to do. When I was pregnant with L I had big sort and a rearrange, spurred on between reading Simplicity Parenting and doing a short Montessori course. I loved the simplicity and uncluttered look, so it is something I am slowly working towards, ok very slowly towards. Before the summer holidays I read Life Changing Magic of Tidying and after googling some images of drawers of folded clothes decided this was something I was going to try and wow, why has it taken me this long to learn about this? These are some of our drawers several months later and we are still folding, yes it takes a bit longer to put the clothes away but it is so easy to find everything you need. Even my youngest can find what she wants and doesn't want and can pull her clothes out without disturbing the other folded clothes unlike when she had to rummage through pile of clothes in the drawer. L and M both love to help fold their washing and put it away too. In the long run this has saved me so much time and have shared with a few friends, some who are now converted to folding, even if our husbands think we are loosing the plot.
