Hi All! So how is 2013 shaping up so far for you all?

Well mine went something like this!

Last year I joined a great Etsy Team, Knit1Treble2... I know great name right! Lots of very talented peeps from the Great Britain, who either knit of crochet supporting each other and what they, we make.

Like with my blogging, I have been a bit rubbish with the old treasuries . but I have been kindly added to lots of beautiful treasuries, the most recent of which is this one... from the lovely Bebby who makes adorable hand knitted jumpers for Kiddies!

Isn't this just an adorable collection of flowers!!

Earlier this month, I was also asked to be a Team Leader for Yvonnes new Team : Heart of Wales So although I am not technically from Wales, my Mum, Dad & Granddad live there, and home is where the Heart is right? :)

I been busy on Instagram lately.. are you come find me on there.. Elli aka HEARTSTITCHING shared one of my doilies on the lovely blog.. go check her out! :)

So I turned another year older!.. yuck.. but such is life eh.. but I did get some lovely pressies.. As well as some snow!! I can't remember it ever snowing on my Birthday.. but it did...

This was the view from our front door,.. we went to Wales to visit the family, and they hardly had any.. must have been the only bit of Wales that didn't get 10 foot! )

This is me and the Mr. wearing our wooly warmers.. that I made :)

I was very lucky and got spoilt rotten.. :)

Hey!!! I have reached OVER 1,000 - yes that is ONE THOUSAND subscribers on YouTube!!!

I can't actually believe it!!!!.. Think I will have to do a YT give away very VERY soon!!!

So if you haven't already why not subscribe to my channel.. hopefully I will be able to scape a few pennies together and get a nice little giveaway prize! :)

Not much else has happened.. too much rain/snow and general weather.. so looking forward to spring and think I will start to make a few hearts for that looming V-Day... ! 

One parting gesture... 

A picture tells a thousand words... as they say... ;)
