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.
