♥ Spring Arrivals...
Lily and SamuelSpring Baby Bunnies
Lily and Samuel are only 9" tall
and have been designed using DK weight yarns....
These are the lovely yarns used in the patterns
which were a joy to work with and I love the pretty pastel shades
(although they were a bit of a challenge to photograph on dull days!)
I'll add all the details in a later post and they will be included in each pattern
You may remember my earlier little sketches...(Yes, it was a clue!)
I really enjoy doodling whatever comes into my head and then seeing if I can
turn them into knitted creations...it's become a habit of mine these days..
I'm always scribbling something....
although my Caran d'Ache pencils seem to develop a strange hue in photographs!
I find smaller designs more of a challenge as there are less stitches to
play with and decreases in a small face can look quite unattractive
(Oh my, we don't want that, do we?)
but I have managed to hide them out of the way
which has made me very happy!
They will be available soon in my
but I thought I would share a few pics with you so that you can see
what I have been doing over the last couple of weeks...
(Time does seem to fly by far too quickly these days!)
I have really bonded with our new little people...
Here's Lily Bunny sitting on my desk quietly watching me work
as I created her brother Baby Samuel...
(and I have to say that I think she's looking very ladylike too!)
to the lovely friends on our
for such kind comments about the our baby bunnies...
they were definitely made to feel very welcome
(and it was very reassuring for me too!)
~♥~A very lovely surprise...
On Saturday...a package arrived in the post for me
from my lovely friend Deborah at
'Simply Miss Luella'
It was totally unexpected and completely made my day....
...I just couldn't stop smiling!!...
I was very tempted to open out my lovely charm pack to share with you
and take a pretty photo of all the designs and colour combinations
but I think I should really show some restraint here and keep my treasures
safely packaged until I am ready to use them....they just look so perfect....
(I can't wait to see them spread out all over my craft table though!)
This gives you an idea of the lovely colours and designs
.....42 truly scrumptious squares....
I also received a large spool of matching sewing thread too
and so I am fully equipped to start creating...no excuses!
(and you really have chosen all my favourite colours here too Deborah!)
You can visit Deborah's blog
Lots of gorgeous quilty projects to inspire you!
Thank you so much lovely friend x
Ooh...another lovely treat..
My girls arrived home on Sunday with the prettiest box of cakes
I have ever seen and all so beautifully packaged
They were carefully transported all the way from
(click to visit)
I should have taken a photograph friends but to be honest
...they really weren't around for very long!
I can highly recommend them though for those occasions
when you just feel like being more than a little indulgent.
Oh, it's good for the soul.. isn't it??!!
Well, I hope you had a lovely Mothering Sunday
and that this weekend is a good one for you too.
It 's always lovely to catch up here
The sun is shining brightly in our corner today....
...fingers crossed that it stays this way and we shall be in the garden later...
Thanks so much for calling by
Until next time
