Pencil Roll Holder!





I just finished sewing up this wonderful pencil holder which was designed by my sister's friend Jessica. Pop on over and take a look at the other wonderful things she makes too as she has just opened up an etsy store. Isabelle picked out the colors with a little help from me, and yes had to put extra large pencils in the holder (we have now put normal sized ones in) and I love it. Nice and bright and beautiful. It was nice being a tester for something. I might just make one for my niece now for her birthday in November.

Other news, I have just started some work for a lady who sells dolls in knitted clothes so I am knitting up some of them for her and being paid too. We will see how it all goes. Mum is excited too as she is knitting some as well. I will have to try and put a few hours aside for my own projects too. Friends of ours had a baby girl on Monday (yes the one I hadnt finished the blanket for) but not to worry will quickly knit something up for her very soon. Welcome to the world baby Chelsea. Now back to some knitting and looking after the kids. My niece stayed last night and I have my nephew over tonight. He and Lachlan are going to be making pizza muffins for dinner tonight so it should be great. Happy knitting and sewing!
