It’s all kicking off

Well, I promised I’d do this. And so far I think I’ve got the techy bits right. I’ve set up a linky – go have a look at the Chronicles of MNarnia page above or use this link below. Powered by Linky Tools Click here to enter your link and view this Linky Tools list……

Handmade half term

Chips off the old block, my boys Elder has been trying his hand at yarn bombing in the back garden. Minimalist but quite cool? And both of them have been doing a bit of stitching – do you like the Halloween cushions? I helped little one with the spider!
