Father Christmas, Christmas Tree and Knitting 

I just love the expression on the face of the Father Christmas on the beautifully decorated Christmas Tree in the lovely Primary School where we sing on Monday evenings.


I have, at last, finished off all the little cardigans I have been making for our expected Grand baby twins. Knitting takes no time at all but sewing all the pieces together, sewing in all the ends and sewing on all the very special buttons takes for ever. For those new readers who don’t know about the buttons – my Grandfather was a button salesman and I have inherited several cards of beautiful mother-of-pearl buttons which I have used on all the baby clothes I have made for all our Grandchildren so they wear buttons that once belonged to their Great Great Grandfather and I just love that!

There are new born, three months and six months sizes and some some hats here, and there are Sallyboots still being made.

Handmade With Love, Threads and Fruit

1   Three cardigans are now done to add to the new Grand-baby’s wardrobe! They are in new-born, 3 months and 6 month sizes and they all have the baby’s Great Great Grandfather’s  beautiful mother-of-pearl buttons. I had some labels made to go inside each hand-made item.

2   My next project is a padded pram blanket so I went to Mum’s cottons drawer to match the colour. I hardly ever have to buy new thread – Mum’s collection is so full of colour.

3   On a grey day such as this, the fruit bowl full of bright orange clementines is a joy to behold. The moon has been this colour for the last two nights but I haven’t been able to get a photo.
