Welcome Candy!

a little baby polar bear, makes her way down to
Mary Jane’s TEAROOM
each week to buy her favourite sugar bonbons. ....

She likes to be sure she always has a plentiful supply ….....

Candy is wearing....

...her favourite Brighton Rock stripy jumper.....

......lazy daisy
embroidered Baby Bear dungarees....

...and pretty candy stripe bows...

on little shoes
which look good enough to eat!

The 'Candy Bear' knitting pattern will be available
in my ETSY shop in a few days time.

Also a few little Candy giveaways to celebrate her arrival!
I have 5 balls of the beautiful Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton 4 ply in Chlorophyll
One ball will be plenty to knit the dungarees or could be used in another MJT project.
If you would like a ball posted FREE of charge just leave a quick message in the comment section below and send your details via the link here or over on ETSY
Once there are 5 takers, sadly the offer has ended, so please check the comment box.
(However, there will be more giveaways in the future!)

I would also like to mention Joy's latest addition.
 Joy has been making her bunnies for quite some time now
and I simply have to say Rosie  is just so pretty!

Finally, all profits from the first 5 patterns will be donated to
Andrea and her lovely bunnies at
