  1. corr those biscuits look delicious!
    beautiful blanket too x

  2. Those biscuits look great. I was holding a little 4 month old boy yesterday and it only felt like yesterday that my little Ruby was that small. Now she is climbing, running, chatting, laughing and has such a big personality already. It goes so fast.

  3. Hmm those look yummy! So nice to have had a look at your blog and all the stuff I missed out on while I've been away! Love the 3 month old photo, and the handwritting thing, very interesting! I find that we spend so much time typing, it's always a little difficult to get back to writing, and my handwriting has definitely suffered for it, it's just not as nice as it was when I was at school! Shame I missed your giveaway!

  4. That quilt is amazing, wonderful presents.
