Nellie the Elephant

She is finally finished, she was pretty fiddly but cute as a button.




Shes not quite perfect (i have yet to make her a tail) but i think shes pretty cool.
I have also made friends with my crochet again

Yippee finally think i have cracked it! its all in the numbers.
So I am officially off work till thursday now woooo!!!!!!! Im heading up north for a bit to spend some time with the family, we never go home for long when we get a chance this will be the longest time i have been there for ages! I have a HUGE pile of knitting to take with me, seriously its crazy. But rather too much than too little huh.
I also have a hair app booked on sunday, i was thinking of just having some 'shape' put in my hair as its looking pretty shocking now but now i want this........

but in brown, by getting it cut, it will get rid of all the nasty blacky/brown colour at the end of my hair without paying a fortune to have it dyed out! So dare I?
Right we have rented Alice in Wonderland for tonight so best get that watched, its chucking it down outside after a boiling day which is odd but at least its watering my garden lol.
Hope you like my Nellie xx

Trouble is, you'll have to get up an hour earlier to style it every morning, not fun! Cx

Don't you dare cut your hair like that! You ALWAYS regret having it cut short, always always. Then you try to grow it long again and the minute it touches your shoulders you want it all off again. Argh!

Nellie is ace though :) xxx
