Are you ready for 2011?

December always feels like a blur to me with Christmas parties, New Year's eve celebrations and many birthdays in between but 2010 had whooshed by me and it was always the case of "so much I want to do and not enough time to do it all" and now there's only one more day to go and I must say, the 'To Do' list is piling up! DOH!

One task on the 'To Do' list is the monthly wallpaper downloads and thankfully, I just received a gentle reminder today for January's wallpaper. Being preoccupied with tomorrow night's celebration in welcoming the New Year, that did slip my mind so I got down to work on it straight away and created is now ready for download, just click here! I hope you like it and I hope you have a bright, happy and a wonderful year in 2011!! :D

Cherishing precious moments...

I wasn't sure whether to post this but I know for some of you who asks about Walter, he has a special place in your thoughts...

In the past few months, Walter has been unwell, he started to get seizures, though infrequently over the past few months, he deteriorated rapidly during the last few days. A couple of days ago, he had an MRI scan and is diagnosed with brain tumor. The tumor is fairly large and is right in the middle of his brain which makes it extremely difficult and risky to remove. Currently, he's on medication to reduce the inflammation of his brain and seizures...he's a little unsteady on his feet but is still alert, still very greedy for food (especially chicken his favourite) and thankfully not experiencing any pain except for hubby and I.

We're thankful to our family and friends for their support and to those who has contacts with vet and neurologist trying to help us find a solution. We've been advised to not get our hopes up so for now, we can only continue to give him a good quality of life and cherish every waking moment we have left with our beautiful boy who has given us so much love and joy over the past 5 and a half years. We are grateful for each day that he is still with us and try to make the most of on that note, it's time for his favourite part of the day, walkies to the park but he'll have to enjoy the fresh air and scenery from within a pram for now...

*:: PEANUT'S HAT ::*

I've had a few requests asking for Peanut's hat knit pattern so that you can give your Peanut elephant a hat too so here it is :-

I'd made up the pattern myself and this is what I did...
I used 2 and 3/4 size needles and baby wool.
Cast on 68 stitches, work 6 rows garter stitch. Change to stocking stitch and work 35 rows.
This will give you a long rectangle shape. Fold the rectangle piece in half and sew the edges together to make a square hat.
Attach a bell to one corner of the hat and stitch the other corner of the hat to the center of the hat and whoa la!! :D
