Busy as a bee...

It's been a busy week so far. I started a part-time job at the beginning of the month and it makes the weeks fly by.
But, I have managed a fair bit of knitting and have finished off 3 things.
I made this teddy for a friend's new baby girl. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern from Simply Baby I don't usually go for the obvious pink or blue for babies and thought this colour was lovely.

I knitted this bag in May using Colinette Point 5, colour banwy, and finally got round to lining it on Monday. Now that autumn is upon us it felt right to have a nice woolly bag again. I sewed some tape the length of the strap having learnt that they just get longer and longer and longer...

And last night I finished another little couldn't resist project that I pilfered from a friend's pattern book. Although summer is over I have now got a permanant reminder of the beach in my bathroom. I filled it with dried chick peas so it has got real feel appeal.

I'm also busy planning for some spring loveliness in the garden and having had a spree in Sarah Raven's catalogue, my bulbs are starting to arrive ready for planting.
