Boom Boom Acka Lacka Lacka Boom

Good morning everyone!  I hope you had a good weekend.  I'm surprisingly cheerful for a Monday morning, probably because I'm being productive again.  Between working on the Buy Handmade British website and injuring my thumb I didn't get anything made last week so I got my knitting loom out over the weekend and made this cute little hot water bottle cover.  Hopefully I'll get a better balance between the website and my crafts this week.
