Sorry for the break, been hookin an bakin!

Hi Guys and Gals, sorry about not posting for a while, I've been busy hooking up some Christmas pressies for my nearest and dearest and I've been busy baking a choccy cake! It was my first time baking a chocolate cake and WHAT A MESS I made!!! With a normal sponge cake you just wack all the ingredients in one bowl...not with choc cake!!! you've got to melt stuff before you mix it with the rest of the stuff and the mountain of washing up I've got to do now is too daunting to look at!! I'll do it tomorrow, I promise.
Well, like I said, I've been a busy bee with my crochet and I've got lots of pictures to show you. I'll post them up soon, I promise.
I've got my eyes on making some socks and some arm warmers, so its a busy week for me. I hope you are all well and keeping busy too. :D

Christmas is Coming! Spread the Joy :D

Yes that's right! We are only.....I dunno? a few weeks away now and I thought I'd whip up some quick and easy Christmas Tree ornaments. Beansprout has been making the patterns and posting them every Tuesday for her 12 weeks of Christmas Cal. 
I love her patterns, so much that I made these 3 today :D Well have got to do something when I'm doing nothing! I've crocheted a Christmas wreath, stocking and poinsettia.

Happy Halloween (warning - my ugly mug in pictures!)

Happy Halloween All

I hope you all had a GREAT time! I know we did :D
We all went to a creepy Halloween party and had a SCREAMMMMM!!!!!

Here I am dressed as a witch. I was meant to be a Gothic fairy but I couldn't get hold of any black wings in time (postal strike put the stopper on that one). I really went to town with the hair and make up and scarily, I quite liked my look too. I may have my hair like this next time I go out! Well maybe a little, lol!

My partner also got in on the act and dressed up in his suit! I was shocked when he came downstairs as he only ever wears a suit when he has to (wedding,
christenings, funerals). I think he looks hot in his suit! I whitened his face and added black around his eyes to finish the look.
We was about to leave when he found a bow tie in the pocket of the suit, don't know where they came from, but he said that he could wear that next year to finish the outfit off. It really is a cheesy 70's bow tie, very Bowfinger!!

Finally my little boy dressed up (as he should). We got him a tabard with a
skull on it! He still looks very cute, he he!!
