The up's well there's just one really but a very nice one!
I'd like to introduce my new nephew

Here we are having our first cuddle at 7 days.
Charlie arrived at 4:32 am on Wednesday 14th November 
weighing a lovely 6lb 5oz, isn't he a beauty.
 Huge congratulations to Becky and Andy!

So this gave me the perfect opportunity to get one of my Arty Farty Templates out again!
I made this Princess Pram using Core'dinations Card, Papermania Acetate, Stampin Up Brads, Ribbon, Lace and Peel-offs form my stash



I'd like to enter my pram into challenges at:

Now the down!!!
Now did you know that Crochet is a dangerous hobby!!!
well, I managed to tear the ligaments in my ankle whilst partaking in said craft!!
How? I hear you ask..........
Sitting in a nice comfy chair with my feet up next to me having my break at work. I got pins and needles in my leg so I stood to relieve them and I just went over, turning my ankle right over. The crack was so loud I thought at first i had dislocated my ankle but it turns out that I have torn all the ligaments on the outer ankle and cracked a bone too!! All this making a blanket for little Charlie!!!



This is my rather shapely ankle then, its varied shades of purple, yellow 
and blue now but thankfully not as painful!!
