Sorry for my recent absence a combination of the Easter holidays from school and then Christopher catching Chicken Pox has meant that there hasn't been much time for me this month.  So I've been reaching for my stitching, knitting & books to unwind when I've had a moment to myself rather than sitting down with the laptop.

So this is a bit of a drive by post with a couple of things that I finally 'finished' in March and I shall be back next week with the 'Theme-a-licious' round up for the month.

First I finally got round to sewing up the cardigan I was knitting for Rosie.  I finished the knitting last year, quite why it took so long to put together is anyone's guess

I also managed to 'finish' this little design from HobNob designs that I stitched back in 2004!

Rosie's cardigan looks just great on her, she really suits the colour. I remember when my son had chickenpox, he was miserable for almost two weeks - the joys of childhood:-)

What a gorgeous cardigan for your beautiful Rosie!! I am always leery of mohair although I love how it looks - very impressed you made a whole cardigan out of it.
The finish is adorable - perfect for the season!
