Eeek....

Where is the time going? Can it really be November?
I haven't been around for a number of reasons. We had Ofsed inspection at school before half term, so it was all hands on deck to put on a good show. This meant working late and all weekend before hand (for free) put it paid off and we did well. I'm now working full time, having been offered extra hours, and the home/work juggling act is becoming harder. The time I have at home is spent with my kids, catching up on housework and preparing resources for work. I do however still manage to fit in a little "me" time for crafting, usually in the early morning as I seem to be waking up at 4am, otherwise known as "Silly 'O Clock".
So without further delay here follows a few pictures of my recent crafts.
I bought this lovely pattern book last month and have started 2 projects for the girls already. It's a great little book and I would recommend it to anyone.

The blue is for my youngest, the red for 3rd daughter.

These mitts are going to Christmas pressies for close friends, I have 3 more pairs to make!
The second part in my Bluebirds BOM stitchery from Buttonberry.

The last 2 projects from The Fat Quarters Club. Bonzer is a lovely koala, I've yet to make his mate Beaut. And the needlecase is this months project which I whipped up this weekend.
So as you can see I am still cramming every spare moment with crafts, work will not take over!!
