oops

I've been gone from here a little longer than I anticipated.  I forgot that I was heading down to Frankfurt for a conference for 3 days and didn't plan any posts.  Plus I've kinda enjoyed the quiet and space that turning off the computer has given me.  I've been doing lots of things - photo-taking, knitting, a bit of crochet but none of it has turned up here, yet.  Some of the things I've been making are gifts.  Remember this picture from back in November?

Well, three of these Mamas have recently had their babies - two boys and a girl and the fourth is not too far behind.  I've been making and creating sweet little things for Lewis, Hugo and little Clementine, as well as starting a few projects for my own July-Bean.  Yup, I've started nesting, stalking baby blogs like they might disappear overnight - my current favourites are here, here, here and here

Tonight an old friend from Australia is coming to stay for a long-weekend city break.  He's currently studying in Oxford and having missed him in Australia last time I was out, I haven't seen him for almost 2 years.  Looking forward to spending evenings sitting on the couch hearing about England, future plans and thoughts on how to rid the world of evil.  I expect I shall return to this Internet space of mine next week with lots of stories and perhaps a few finished projects to show.  Until then.

I was already starting to get worried about you not being here :)
Looking forward to see all your knitting projects, I am still doing my basic scarf, but I am excited. I want to do some mittens afertwards, but all the instructions are like reading Chinese for me :)
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the good company of your friend!
Liebe Gruesse, Kristina

Congrats to all the new mamas! I'm a bit jealous you've gotten to take some time away from the computer -- I'd love to do the same, but it's hard for me with school and readings and the like. Sometime soon though. Have fun!

Isn't it always nice to step away from the computer for a few days - it makes thoughts and ideas flow more smoothly.

Enjoy your friends visit.

Ah, Clare, it's a treat to see that photo again. Enjoy your precious time with your friend - it'll be a while before you'll be able to finish a sentence with him, let alone a whole conversation ☺. J x
