Autumn Sunshine in the Garden

31 Oct

It has been the most glorious Autumn day and I have been sitting outside for hours as I have finished off two outfits for our twin Grandbabies due in January. These cardigans have  mother-of-pearl buttons from my Grandfather, the Great Great Grandfather of these babies, as have all the things I have knitted for any of the Live Wires.

They each have little labels in that say,’Handmade with love especially for you.’

Live Wire T left us her butterfly hanging from my monkey planter and the wind had wound them up in a rather pleasing pattern. 

Glorious Autumn colours against a cerulean sky!

Happy Hallowe’en everyone.

    You always find a way to bring something beautiful into this WordPress and this post is a classic example! I love that you left the butterfly stay all wound up in the monkeys! It brings color to their ordinary existence ūüôā From ordinary to extraordinary right?! Your craftswomanship is once again amazing — your Live Wires are so blessed to have such a talented “Wire” “-)

    Happy Hallowe’en to you, too, Sally. I felt good all over thinking of you sitting in the warm sun, finishing up your labor of love.

      What a lovely thing to say! I am delighted with the finished items – now to finish the hats and the Sally-boots….
