Happy New Year!!

1 Jan

Happy New Year everyone!
Hope you all had a fantastic New Year party/shindig/quiet night in. Whatever you decided to do I hope it was the absolute shizz.
Mark and I spent New Year with some family, played board games etc. Turns out I know more about Harry Potter than I thought. And I can name 3 things in a random category in 5 seconds.
Only, however, when I have been drinking it seems. When we played this a couple of days ago and I was stone sober I was sucky at the game, but add a couple of Crabbies and I’m in.
You know like that episode of Family Guy when Peter can play the piano?
Anyway, speaking of drinking, I thought my anti-sobriety would be a perfect opportunity to use a crummy phone camera and take photos of my most recent make. The pattern is McCalls 6503 in a navy polka dot cotton. It fitted me nicely when I first made it a couple of weeks ago but Christmas indulgence has made it a bit snug 😦
Before you scroll down please be aware that these are not pretty photos. You have been warned!

My serious face.

In other news- remember that floral knit I got from Walthamstow? Well that’s been sewn into something. Just got to hem it. Stay tuned and have a fab 2013!!
