Ice cream, sea, sand and shopping!

Hi everyone :)


I'm in the Isle Of Wight on my holidays now! :)

I'm having lots of fun.We only came on Sunday and I've eaten 2 ice creams already, a bannoffe one and a hot choc dip, speciality of the Sandown! (a flake 99 dipped in melted chocolate :P). I've also been down to the beach and in the sea, which was FREEEEZING!!! *o* but I had a full body wetsuit on so I could just about cope :0)

Our apartment is quite nice and we have a little balcony which overlooks the beach, here is the lovely view:

The other good thing about our apartment is that it is only a short walk (although uphill!) away from two brilliant crafty shops, a cute haberdashery shop called Rainbows and a bead shop called Purple Moon Beads. I have been visiting them most mornings and picking up some different bits and pieces.

I managed to get some really good bargains such as this piece of beautiful oriental style material for only 75p!

...... Which will go perfectly with the Oriental Lady cross stitch kit I bought as well :)

(I had to get the bat kit too as it was just too cute to resist :3)

It's been nice having time to relax as it has meant I can catch up and do some more on my many knitting projects. Over the last few evenings I have been making more innocent hats:

I'll probably carry on with my DAL project tonight and maybe make one more hat as well,

I hope everyone is having a great holiday, wherever you are! :)

Speak to you all again soon!

Bye bye xxx


  1. Oooo,all of your stuff looks pretty! Have fun!!! I'm on summer break! Is that what you're on? Do you remember me? ( I used to blog on One Word Down, Millions to Go. I have a new one. )

  2. Oh my goodness I want one of those hot choc dip ice creams!!! Sounds like you're having a great time! Love the fabric and the cross stitch kits- I've done the oriental lady one, she's great. The knitted hats are really lovely and for a good cause too! Enjoy the rest of your hols! (I sent you a little pressie yesterday, I didn't realise you were away, so you'll get it when you get back!)
