woyww plus Minions & Cupcake

On my workdesk this lovely Wednesday is :-  My Smashbook / Journal/ Scap Book, whatever you want to call it.  It is proving very useful for jotting down ideas especially when looking through my friends magazine yesterday.  I managed to get lots of tips, some good websites to check out and some new blogs to look at.

There is a finished Minion on there waiting to be delivered.  Some photos I want to cut up and do something with - not sure what yet.

Also there is some crochet - I am attempting to crochet a blanket but am kind of making it up as I go along.  When I was in the loft this weekend (having a huge clearout) I came across all the old baby blankets that I have knitted, friends and family have crocheted.  I don't want to get rid of them so I thought I might crochet them all together and make one huge blanket. 


Hurrah - I have finally finished my knitted Minions and have the pattern here:-

One for my neice and two for my friends' children.  I had such fun knitting these (although they are bit fiddly to sew together).  They each have their own look and I am sad to see them go to their new homes. 

Be happy little Minions.  BTW these are from the film 'Despicable Me' - I had a few comments last week asking what Minions were.  They are little helpers / workers of the main man in the film (Cartoon).  He has hundreds of them. 

Doesn't everyone deserve a few Minons in their life?


I also made another felt cupcake - I quite like this one but not sure it's quite good enough to eat.

Maybe I could knit myself a load of Minions, to make me lots of cakes and then I can sit and eat them all day long.   Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ;0)

I always carry a notebook in my bag Famfa and it’s so useful because I’m useless at remembering all the fab things that spark off ideas in my head.

the minions are so cute. Saw a game for your iPhone called Tiny Towers and the residents are called Bitzens. Sorry I am so late getting around but haven't felt well this week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie
