I haven’t been getting to this blog as often as I would like…
it is usually a toss-up between posting something here and nibbling and squiggling a certain little man: and I’m afraid the latter usually wins out…: why, would you look at those gorgeous chubby cheeks!!
My sister had her little baby ♥Hannah♥ last weekend, and I made my niece and Grace a little swaddled baby, from a really simple and lovely pattern from Adirondack patterns (check it out here)
I have many projects on the go that I am slowly chipping away at… I designed eighteen cards which have now gone to print (thank you Data Print!), am making decorated boxes, wrapped pens and felted soaps for the Ballinasloe Craft Fair next weekend.
In the middle of all this I am making these crochet slippers for my small ones: I am considering writing a pattern (not my forte by any stretch of the imagination, my sister got all the pattern-writing-genes)
These look a little bonkers because the coloured yarn I used wasn’t the best for the job; but my little boy loves them, and they are just so simple to make, and warm and cosy for running around the house…
It really does feel like winter is settling in when the stove is lit every day and the slippers make an appearance!!
Oh!! Do write the pattern!! The slippers look so cosy!!
And your son is completely adorable!!
What a beautiful baby! 🙂 And the little doll is adorable. My granddaughter still loves the little Sweet Pea you made. I don’t know how to crochet, but I can see that the slippers would be cozy. I am so impressed at all you get done. When my children were tiny, I feel like it was all I could do to just cover the basics!
The baby is gorgeous, congrats to your sister. And the doll turned out sweet as well!
Oh what a beautiful, beautiful baby, so cuddy and sweet.
You must be busy busy these days,
I don’t know how you have time to crochet too!
Love the slippers.
Take care and enjoy your lovely family
He is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! How you do anything other than sit and admire the great job you did is amazing to me.
Congrats to your sister and her new addition.
I love all your creations!! and I can’t believe you have time with that little chubby cheaked love! inspires me to think about baby #2… and yes, I’d love that slipper pattern! (after your craft fair ;0)
