I am celebrating finally finishing off the little teddy and her wardrobe. It has been a long WIP as I started before Xmas but have done lots of other stitching and knitting in between. But now it is all done ready to be posted for the birthday next week.
I have not given the bear a name as I thought I would let her new owner do that but here she is in her purple dress …
She has two other outfits complete with knickers and headbands ….
… and a little bag ….
…… which turns into a comfy bed.
I have really enjoyed knitting this, especially the little dresses – it seems, as with my stitching, that I like doing small projects best. I have even had a quick peak at the Jean Greenhowe site recently and admired all her characters. I shall aspire to become one of those little old ladies who knits endlessly for church fetes!
I have just completed a knitted present , pics of which will have to be posted later and have tonight cast on for a new hat for me to go with my pink Spring coat in a lovely variegated pink and purple yarn.
Have also just had a very nice order from my Avon lady delivered – which included this very cute ‘tea for one’ teapot and cup.
The tea cup has a very nice rose design inside.
I have also got the matching cake stand but will have to fill that with something yummy before I can photograph it – Jake has finished all the last batch of baking!
Will not be posting for a little while as we are off to sunny Spain next week (hurrah). Ellie is home at the weekend and it is her birthday on Tuesday – she will be 19 this year, the last of her teen years already! We will be meeting up with my cousins in Spain with their new baby Anna-Mae so have been indulging myself with some shopping for cute baby clothes to take for her. Will take lots of pics!
Am also going to be going to a couple of religious festivals while I am there (sorry kids!) to see the icons being brought out of the churches – am very much looking forward to that. On the bright side kids we can go for pizza afterwards!
Hope you all have a lovely Easter with lots of family time and chocolate!
Thanks for visiting.
