Here is as promised some photos of things I have made so far in January and February. As you can see I have had lots of fun making things for Aline. It will now all be waiting for her in a basket along with some beautifully knitted blankets her Grandma (Stefan's mom) has made. It must also be said while all this has been stitched together(mainly by hand), my dear husband has been reading out loud for us from Robin Hobbs books (which are highly recommended by the way!).

And Yes I have been working on my PhD too! I've written nearly 20000 words so far since Christmas! I've been a very busy bee! Here is a photo to prove it:
